Profile of our founder: Jeremiah Walsh
What can I say about my company and about myself that doesn’t sound too cliché or expected on an “about us” page?
I will say that I am passionate about what I do and I have been doing it for a long time. I fell in love with sales back in the early 90′s when I was selling products door to door for a local charity. I realized that I could “will” my income into existence. I have succeeded at selling everything from kitchen knives to vacuums, speakers, fridges, servers, services and SaaS based software. I have risen from successful inside sales, to outbound sales, to key account sales, to sales management and now entrepreneurship.
My list of customers over the years has included all of the major banks in Canada, hundreds of technology firms, managed service providers, retail houses, agencies, real estate brokerages, and countless small businesses.
As for marketing, I have been actively generating my own clients for years through various means. I have spent countless hours perfecting my approach and have it down to a repeatable and scalable system. Through this system, I have achieved success through many different avenues consisting of online, direct and indirect methods.
My wife and I started Elevated Sales & Marketing so that we can help other companies achieve the same success that I personally have achieved over the years. On top of that, we wanted to build something of value that our children, 4 year old Aiden and our 4 month old daughter Lana, can see as an example of what is possible when you take action.
I love my kids, I love my wife, I love what I do, and I would love to help you.
What’s up with your business name?
I chose the name “Elevated Sales & Marketing” because I have a fascination with the “elevator pitch” and I wanted that to show in my business. Typically, you only have about as much time as it takes for an elevator to go from the first floor to the second floor to gain the active attention of a potential customer. That can be about 30 seconds or perhaps even less.
I have spent many years perfecting my pitch so that it has become a part of who I am. I wanted my business’ name to be an extension of who I was, so by building the “elevator pitch” into the name I have extended myself into the core of my company’s identity.
Success is based on who you know. Get to know me so that we can succeed together.
