Who We Are
Social Startup Consulting (SSC), is a social enterprise that brings sales and marketing expertise to startups who have good ideas and financing but who lack the internal expertise to build and grow top-performing sales and marketing teams.
Social Startup Consulting provides the comprehensive services required to build a strong sales and/or marketing team from the ground up.
These services include, but are not limited to, the following:
1. Writing an initial pitch script then testing and refining that pitch script in the marketplace using Social Startup Consulting’s experienced sales experts
2. Interviewing, hiring, and training the first class of sales reps and later classes as needed
3. Lead generation strategy
4. CRM system consulting, including how to scale from MVP (like Google docs) to more professional CRM’s like Salesforce
5. Comprehensive sales strategy including sales rep compensation and incentive structure, lead distribution strategy, and sales rep performance evaluation system
6. Coaching and performance management strategy, teaching startups both how to prepare the best reps to become team leaders and when and how to let an under-performing rep go
7. Creating a strong culture where sales teams are honest, happy, productive, and empowered to contribute valuable feedback to product development and management teams
Our service is better than what other sales and marketing consulting companies currently offer because we offer not only the frameworks and playbooks required for success but also work closely with our clients to actually implement the sales strategies we teach.
Implementation is where the true value happens because starting a sales or marketing org from scratch is hard, time consuming, and emotionally draining, especially for people trying to do it for the first time. We take this burden away from startup founders and managers so they can focus on what they do best while trusting our team of experts to quickly build highly performant sales and marketing teams.

"From start to finish, Katy did an outstanding and professional job. We hired her because of her strong, proven experience in sales and couldn't be happier with the deliverables. She helped us write a sales script for our company video and even took the time to carefully coach us through the delivery of the script. I will hire her again for future related jobs and highly recommend her. She's a true gem. Thank you!"
