A Unique Approach
It’s important to state that I don’t come to you with fixed programs that you must mold too. Instead, I look at what you want to accomplish, the resources (both financial, time, and personnel) that you can commit, and the timeframe in which to achieve the result. I then create a unique solution to your need and customize it to fit your current business practices. Here are some of the services we provide:
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT OURSELVES
So, Who is Steve Hartman?
Steve Hartman has over 30 years of sales and marketing experience. He is based in the San Jose, California area. He specializes in working with small business owners who have no full-time marketing staff person. He is brought into these businesses to create innovative marketing programs, train the salespeople, and help monitor the results.
Steve enjoys the challenge of working with tight budgets and slightly overwhelmed business owners. He understands that when the owner of a small business is forced to wear several “hats”, that not all of them fit very well. Usually, it is the sales and marketing hat that fits the worst.
Steve’s goal is to create a workable marketing and sales strategy and train the staff to be able to implement that strategy within a few months. He is then brought back in occasionally to fine tune and realign the strategies as needed. He wants the company’s sales and marketing programs to be self- sustaining. He also helps small businesses utilize their customer database to create referrals.
Don’t Take Our Word For It
“Steve helped me train the managers of several of my offices. He created innovative and original marketing and promotional campaigns for these managers. He developed sales materials and helped them implement the programs. His presence marked a significant change in their attitude, confidence and sales performance. I would recommend him to any business owner who needs a “shot in the arm!”
“I hired Steve to be a marketing stimulus for my clients. I sent him to dozens of my clients who were all business owners needing help in sales. The man is a genius! His unconventional style and commitment to results really made a difference. They loved him…and, of course, I got the credit for sending him to them!”
“I gave Steve impossible challenges and he excelled in each one. For example, one holiday season I wanted to compete with my competitors who were spending thousands of dollars to attract new clients. I had a budget of less than $300. Steve’s “outside of the box” ideas not only outperformed my competitors (who simply threw money at the task rather than ideas) but he actually came in under budget. Amazing!”
