Independent business development manager and sales services tailored for entrepreneurs, innovators, pre- and post-investment startups and rapid growth SMEs
Since 2011 Independent Business Development Manager (i-BDM Ltd) has been providing specialist and niche hands-on independent business development manager services into SMEs in sectors as wide ranging as high technology, software development, cyber security, investigations services, defence & security, specialist training and lots more besides.
By “hands-on” we mean that i-BDM does not simply advise or coach business owners on what they could or should be doing to maximise sales and build more business, but to step in and actually deliver on these plans. As an independent business development manager our clients can expect high quality and high impact delivery of leads, qualified introductions, strategic partnerships and sales provided on a flexible basis using our proven “Retainer Plus” model.
Borne out from years of experience in working closely with SMEs, startups and innovators, we understand the way in which the day-to-day operation of doing business means we often lack time to focus on our business to develop it further and look more smartly and objectively at how we work and maximise revenue.
Strong business development is always hand-in-hand with the ability to build and maintain strong relationships and when you look for an independent business development manager this should be high on your list of priorities. Your business will be something that you are passionate about, something that you spend a huge amount of time in and as such it will be a part of you. Our mission is always to work with you to ensure sustainable and long term growth.
We recognise that although the vast percentage of business owners want to build more sales there is not always capacity within the current organisation to set aside dedicated time to build a robust development plan. Taking on an independent business development manager through i-BDM Ltd provides you with this expertise and resource to quickly grow your business.
Often, with new businesses, there is also not the cash flow to enable bringing in a new recruit to the team and all that this would entail. i-BDM was designed to fill this gap and work with these business owners to offer a flexible business development service that would be relevant, efficient and cost-effective.
There is nothing ‘cold’ about our approach and we ensure that those we are contacting will be interested in what you have to offer.
