Never make a cold call. Hilliard leverages his rolodex to
provide direct access to key senior executives at hundreds of companies. This

and will insure that you get to operating profitability in the shortest possible
time. In addition, Hilliard brings a wealth of experience in the deal making
process. He knows how to find the type of deal that works for all parties
You want to close business now. Hilliard will help you identify potential
customers in real time. He will begin actively calling on decision-making
executives in his rolodex within days of our agreeing to work together. As we
begin the dialogue with the initial customers, Hilliard will actively bring that
feedback to you so we can begin to refine and improve the plan.
Identifying Your Potential
From the very first moment we begin to learn about your business, we will begin
taking notes on potential customers and business partners for your business.
This will become a continuous brainstorming process throughout our working
relationship. We use this brainstorming process to insure that we keep a fresh
target list of companies to pursue on your behalf. We can then systematically
attack that target list to keep a high activity level. New prospects, new deals
in negotiation, and newly closed deals proceeding to implementation.
In addition, while Hilliard's rolodex is deep and rich, it's not just about his
personal rolodex. We have lots of affiliate relationships with other industry
veterans, private equity investors, and advisors that have their own network of
contacts. Hilliard uses this network aggressively to insure that he can get a
warm introduction wherever we go on your behalf. If we can complete our
engagement without ever making a cold call, then everyone benefits.
