Want to work with a company that understands start-up growth? Then you’re in the right place.Find out more
We’ve rapidly grown to become the go-to consultancy for B2B founders operating in the service and tech space.
Our mission is simple: we’ll help you scale your business and grow your revenues.
We’re proud to be mentors for Natwest Group’s Entrepreneur Accelerator programme, which helps high-growth businesses break into new markets and locate new investment opportunities.
We’ve worked successfully with start-ups in Brighton and throughout the rest of the UK. Find out how we can help yours by getting in touch to learn more.
Have you been sucked in by the “Make multiple six-figure sales” mantra used by so-called quick-fix gurus? If only you knew what they did – then you’d have the shortcut to success all figured out and could leave your competitors for dust.
The uncomfortable reality? Success takes time and careful execution. You can’t take a tactic that worked for someone else, apply it to your business, then sit back and reap the rewards.
Take a look at the top five challenges our clients face and see if they ring a bell.
Experience fear of the unknown when it comes to sales, marketing or hiring?
Rely too heavily on leads generated through your network or referrals?
Feel bewildered by the choice of tools, and don’t know where to begin?
Understand who your competitors are, or feel like you’re working blind?
Know your market inside out, but have limited experience of running a business?
Do these obstacles seem familiar? Then let’s devise a business coaching and mentoring package to get your business back on track, because these aren’t easy fixes that can be solved by a self-titled guru.
So, what’s it like working with us?
Excuse the cliche – but every business is different. That’s why we’ll make it our mission to understand you, your business, your market, what’s worked – and, just as importantly, what hasn’t. Using these findings we’ll enable you to create a unique strategy to help you scale and increase sales.
By the end of our journey together, you’ll know how to execute go-to-market plans, deploy efficient sales efforts and create robust operational structures.
In between, you’ll enjoy comprehensive support from our highly knowledgeable and friendly team.
When you’re comfortable and the results are evident, we’ll take a step back. But we’ll only ever be a call or email away if you need us.
Start-up growth couldn’t be easier when you make Second Voice your partner of choice.
Bespoke Coaching & Mentoring That Drives Better Performance
Are you the founder of a start-up working in the tech or service industry? Do you want more leads, more clients, and more sales? Good. Because that’s what we do. And we’ve got a solid track record of doing it well already – for accountants, agency owners, consultants, software developers, SaaS companies and creatives throughout the UK.
How do we drive greater sales performance and stop founders from floundering? Let’s break down the process.
We’ll help you:
Understanding your audience is critical to sales success. We will help you define customer personas and establish which are the best channels to get their attention and acquire them as customers.
By coaching and mentoring your leadership team, we’ll empower them with the skills needed to flood your sales funnel with leads. There’s no guesswork either. The objectives we create will be backed up by thorough research.
Start-up growth won’t happen for your tech or service company unless you know what your rivals are doing. We’ll work out how you compare, bringing to the fore your strengths and weaknesses – so you can adapt and start leading the pack.
By mapping out the customer journey and equipping you with the right tools and knowledge, we’ll help you sell more and prime your start-up for growth.
Everything from pricing strategy, sales forecasting, target setting and running a P&L, we will be beside you to enable the full financial controls for your growth efforts.
That’s without mentioning all the other benefits – like improved customer insight, leveraging our network of suppliers, plus access to over 20-years experience in the sales and growth space.
Ready to talk?
At Second Voice we discuss processes in detail with founders of B2B companies such as service and tech start-up businesses. Our goal is to empower and educate our clients by supplying bespoke and affordable online business coaching and mentoring services from Brighton and throughout the UK.
Our processes provide entrepreneurs with the ability they need to fully understand and execute go-to-market planning, deployment of efficient sales and operational structures. By deliberate and focused targeting, our process works from the beginning of training right through to executing strategies that can help your business to grow exponentially.
Whilst we provide founders with the tools to grow, offering online support to them along their journey is also a top priority.
Coaching And Mentoring for Founders
These bespoke programmes have been developed in Brighton to meet the needs of small businesses throughout the UK. We aim to provide start-up businesses in both the service and tech industry with the ability to generate more leads and, in turn, more clients. It is our primary goal to help drive a high sales performance for the likes of agency owners, accountants, consultants and creatives across the UK, in addition to those wanting to break ground in software development.
By helping start-up businesses to build on their strategy, our clients can begin to define their processes. Furthermore, by training our client’s entire team, we aim to create a sales funnel filled with potential. Upon completion of the initial process of business coaching and mentoring, our clients can expect to have clear and set out objectives that have been backed up through a researched sales strategy.
Our in-depth competitor analysis allows clients to understand the general trajectory of similar UK businesses in the service and tech start-up industry. Clients will also have a clear and mapped-out understanding of the sales process after receiving help in developing a documented customer journey and the chosen tools needed to aid in sales efforts.
Our clients will also have a much better understanding of additional and essential aspects of their business. Examples include customer analysis, staffing requirements, clear pricing structures and forecasts.
Curious & highly inquisitive
Learning is progress. Start-up growth, therefore, stems from being inquisitive, objective, and open to criticism. That’s why we’ll keep asking questions until we get the bigger picture - so we can take your business in the right direction.
Experienced & authentic
We’ve launched and scaled successful businesses - but have made mistakes too and learnt from them. Using real-world experience you can’t get in a classroom, we’ll identify your challenges and help you overcome them.
Trustworthy & trusted too
We’re proud of what we achieve for our customers, and that NatWest has made Second Voice part of its accelerator programme. To learn how we can add value to your start-up or tech business, head over to our testimonials page and see what our happy customers have to say.
Human beings just like you
We’re more than a team of experienced business professionals. We’re human beings who care and want your business to succeed. That’s why we’ll work alongside you, adopting the mindset of partner, not contractor. We’re in it together from start to finish, as a team.
