Service Description

Having worked on Elance for years and as a top rated provider, I have come to recognize a need of many organizations. I've found that many companies are in need of an experienced Sales Director or Sales Manager to help build, develop, motivate, or monitor their sales teams. Others simply look to tap into the experience of a seasoned sales veteran for help with a short or medium term project. However, the economics of hiring a full time, permanent Sales Director at $100k+ per year is often not in the cards.

To meet this need, I've created Sales & Management Partners, LLC.

I am here to assist those looking for a quality sales development executive with extensive experience in a variety of markets or those in need of help coaching and training their sales staff to be more effective.

I am also available for those in need of sales copy/marketing copy that can get across the "sales" feel without being obnoxious. With decades of experience, I have created and utilized countless sales scripts, presentations, write ups, and marketing materials to help be close the deal. I would like to help you by developing those materials as you see fit.

I have found through Elance that I enjoy learning about different products, services, and industries - and the challenge of developing new sales techniques keeps me on my toes!

Since I do have a wide variety of interests, latching on to the concepts of new products or services to discuss with clients is always very quick. I will...
