Services for the Hard-to-Sell

If you have a hard-to-sell product or service and need help building or re-qualifying your sales pipeline or growing sales, Meta is the right choice. Meta specializes in the hard-to-sell – products & services that are expensive, involve multiple influencers & decision-makers, and have a long sales-cycle. We have extensive experience serving clients in the IT services, software, manufacturing, and management consulting sectors since 1992. Meta was a pioneer in the B2B sales prospecting profession and continues provide innovative and highly-effective solutions for its clients – solutions that work well in tighter markets and a lean economy.

In addition to providing services to overcome many of the issues that exist at the front-end of the sales process, Meta's founder recently announced a new product to address the growing issue that exists at the back-end of the sales process – increasing close rates in markets with growing and stiff competition. Announced in 2012, SellVantage™ is a strategic selling tool specifically designed to improve sales productivity, close rates, and the forecastability of complex sales. (SellVantage info.)
