ViaVerus works side-by-side with startups and businesses looking to generate first-to-market sales for new products and services. Starting with the premise that value is established in the market, we engage with your markets early to validate ... or just as important, invalidate … a product plan. Through our true path approach we uncover your customers' true needs, identify the optimal sales strategy before launch and set the foundation for an effective marketing plan.
We do this using our proprietary Agile Market Entry (AME) framework, designed specifically to meet the unique challenges from launch to scale. The end result is delivering the proven repeatable sales process (RSP) required by your professional sales team to scale revenue.

AGILE MARKET ENTRY IMPACT

The issue Chris has identified, which I think is quite profound, is that a new product rarely has a tested, working sales process. Chris has developed a process to make that process of "inventing the sales process" more efficient and effective.

Executing on AME with ViaVerus has positioned EA as the recognized market leader despite being a much smaller company than our key competitors.

Utilizing AME showed that there was no market for our planned service offering, thereby saving us from wasting considerable effort and resources. Perhaps more importantly, the process indicated demand for alternative services that would ultimately be far more lucrative.
