Want to reduce your cost of sale?
A ‘lone wolf’ mind-set dominates our approach to selling technology products. Companies rely on their sales team to do everything from finding prospects through to securing a sale, resulting in a high cost of sales and associated long sales cycles.
Concentrate helps you take a ‘wolf pack’ approach to sales. Deploy online and offline strategies to finding, nurturing and qualifying sales
leads for the sales team to then convert into customers.
After evaluating several technologies, we decided to partner with the world's leading inbound marketing software provider, Boston-based HubSpot. Having qualified as a gold partner, Concentrate is now a key agency for HubSpot in Asia-Pacific and is bringing huge benefits to the marketing programmes of local technology companies.
