SALT LAKE CITY—August 15, 2011—Launch Leads (https://www.launchleads.com) Boot camp whips soldiers in to shape, now just think of what it can do for your business. The Provo Technology Accelerator (Provo Tech-X), is gearing up to hold its annual business boot camp and 12 week program Aug. 25. The camp provides expert-driven mentoring, with proven methodologies and cutting-edge tools to businesses, all at no cost to participants.
The mentoring is conducted by several regional business experts and top CEO’s including Launch Leads CEO Scott Smith. Launch Leads is a fast growing business-to-business lead generation and executive level appointment setting company that is on the board of directors at the Provo Tech-X.
“Provo Tech-X is a great resource for businesses to use,” Smith said, “The companies that have become part of the Provo Tech-X team have increased their ability to sell their product or service into their targeted market, because the mentors are sales and marketing focused.”
The Provo Tech-X mission is to seek out the most promising entrepreneurs, products or services and help accelerate access to mentors who are sales and marketing experts. Success of the program is measured in terms of the number of quality jobs created for the community by these growing companies.
Launch aids in the success through mentoring these businesses to be able to generate sales leads and qualified appointments with their potential customers. Launch helps them to write scripts, email templates and to understand the methodologies and processes of a successful outbound calling campaign.
Collectively, participating companies’ sales are on track to do 20-30 percent better than previous years and they have created more than 50 new jobs.
Smith teaches companies strategies such as engaging decision makers, knowing who the target audience is, gaining access and information from the gatekeeper, e-mail secrets and how to avoid the biggest mistake salespeople make.
“We completed our first boot camp and program last year and it went very well,” Smith said. “It is a great way for Launch to give back to others by sharing our expertise in B2B lead generation, lead qualification, cold calling and sales techniques. It’s exciting for me to see them turn the knowledge they gained from the mentors in this program into success sales and marketing practices in their own businesses.”
