MARKETING IS A PROBLEM.
PROBLEMS NEED TO BE SOLVED.

What’s the problem with marketing?

We have all endured the jargon-filled sales pitch from a local marketing agency only to realize, an hour later, that you still have no idea what they are talking about. All you picked up from that conversation was being asked to spend $5,000 a month without a lot of guarantees to back it up.

But the problem remains; you understand the importance of being found online, you know how hard it is to get prospects to answer their phones. You know the old methods of prospecting are not getting you or your salespeople enough opportunities. Expensive salespeople are prospecting more and selling less. This is not going to fix itself. So where do you go from here?

That’s where ThinkFuel comes in.

For over 18 years I have sat in the exact same chair you are sitting in right now. The chair that knows that every dollar spent on marketing is a dollar is coming from somewhere else; your operations department, salespeople, your pocket. That is why ThinkFuel only recommends B2B digital marketing solutions that will increase your sales. Solutions with an impact that can be measured.

Most importantly, we present these programs in a completely transparent model that is easy to understand and never leaves you guessing where or why your money is being spent.
