Scaling sales is not a solo act.

A fractional CRO can help.

Hello Founder. Is this you?

"I keep getting pulled back into sales."

"We can't afford hiring mistakes."

"Buyers are slipping through the cracks."

"Salespeople can't sell like I sell."

"I don't know what salespeople need from me."

"Our sales process is all over the place."

Well, you're in good company.

Chris Evans

Partner & Co-Founder

In 2013, Chris and I began working together as the first two sales reps at Bluebridge, a B2B SaaS startup in the mobile app space. When we joined, there was no product, no customers, and no brand awareness — only drawings of our founder’s product idea and a spreadsheet of some potential customers for us to prospect.

We did everything from scratch — cold calls, sales meetings, market pivots, sales management, hiring, GTM strategy, positioning, CRM, pricing, customer referrals, email campaigns, field events, etc.

Within 5 years, Bluebridge had grown from $0 to $5M in ARR, hundreds of customers, 60+ employees, and was celebrating a successful exit.

Shortly after, our same team spun up another SaaS product called Emplify, focused on helping HR executives solve employee retention challenges. Similar to Bluebridge, Emplify from $0 to $5M ARR, but this time it took less than 3 years resulting in a much higher exit multiple.

What was our secret sauce?

Our VP of Customer Success said it best: "With most sales teams, you either get high performance or high integrity. This team has both."

We rarely had the downhill momentum of product-market fit, but made up for it by incorporating excellence and core values into the way we sold.

In 2023, we founded Stompbox to help other GTM teams make their salespeople the ultimate brand ambassadors and experience the same transformation.

As a songwriter, I love helping founders find the right words, translating their big ideas into stories that resonate.

But that is just the beginning. To achieve their goals, founders must equip others to tell their story.
