    Karl Goldfield

    Sales Guru, Business Plan and Marketing Copy Expert

    United States - Tests: 2

    In the new global community, there are advantages and challenges never before fathomed by the entrepreneur. The 21st century startup is faced with new concepts in financing, new challenges in competitive landscapes, and real time needs and abilities. What is consistent and will always remain so, is that the startup must deliver on expectations by selling their offering. Karl Goldfield is passionate about developing teams for emerging companies. For the past fifteen years, he has shown the ability to deliver beyond expectations through continual innovation. By establishing a plan then testing the boundaries of that plan, Karl provides methodologies that help to address particular challenges. He delivers strategies that allow startups to mold sales teams from the clay of their own attributes. Karl’s philosophies stem from planning before execution, sound processes, and educating the evangelists. A company that reacts to problems as they arise is not a fluid as one that builds a plan, trains to that plan, and retools the development of their organization to define success. In today’s business world we need to coach and be mentored, not tracked and managed. Sales 2.0 Transformation: Sales strategy is an evolving part of society. Every day the manner in which people respond to stimuli is changing. Old practices continually have to give way to new principles and personalities. Karl believes the paradigm must always adapt to the masses. With the internet now at the forefront of most product and service education, buying decisions are more about sifting through immense amounts of data than getting information from sales people. The new paradigm is to help people visualize their business needs being met. Sales 2.0 interaction makes this connection virtual and seamless. It is not intrusive, ongoing, and always beneficial to the timing and needs of the buyer. Let our team help you integrate new Sales 2.0 strategies into your business model.
