"Marketing and sales help"


I am the first account rep/partner for a telecomunications company. Landline Voip phone and internet. The company has recently moved into the range to compete with the big national companies. Although we have the ability to go national, we are first focusing on getting the local/regional business.

The company has been built on "word of mouth" business. It is now time to grow. I am the person given the task of taking the company to the next step. I am an OK sales person, but never considered myself as a marketing guru.


At this stage we have a very tight budget. I have started cold calling and hitting the pavement, but we all know the customer needs to see/hear our name 8 times before they trust you and think of you as a houshold name.

We are in Branson Mo. This is a town where everyone knows everyone

Any Suggestions?

Mike Headle
