I Help Advertising Agencies Design and Run Effective Business Development Programs.

The drill: You are leaving new accounts on the table. Don’t do that.

I have the secret. Crazy? Sure. But the secret is running a world-class business development, um, let’s be real, a super smart sales program. One that your agency actually runs 24/7.

I have designed my business development consultancy to deliver customized biz dev programs. I help small and large agencies around the world to grow faster by leveraging a smarter and, importantly, highly efficient business development system.

I am the most experienced business development consultant

I know that this is sounds, well Kinda like Vaynerchuck, a rather self-centered thing to say, but it is true.

  • I ran North American and European business development at Saatchi & Saatchi Advertising Worldwide.
  • I owned Citrus, an advertising agency with offices in Portland and Bend, Oregon. Clients included Harrahs, Nike, The Montana Lottery and LegalZoom.
  • I bought and sold three ad agencies.
  • I’ve pitched and won accounts from Los Angeles to Boise to Seoul to Dusseldorf.
  • I’ve sat on the client side of the table as CEO and founder of two digital companies. Microsoft bought one.
  • I advise advertising, PR, design and digital agencies across the USA, Europe, Asia, Australia, and South America.
  • I wrote a best-selling book on advertising agency business development.
  • My well-read Insights section has over 600 business development blog posts.

What I’ll do for you…

I will help you build a comprehensive business development plan that is so customized for your business goals, market, skills, and staff you’ll run it 24/7.

In four to six weeks you will have a comprehensive, detailed sales plan that will begin to help you position your agency for success, grow your client base and generate higher revenues.

My bottom line: The only way to win this game is to be dedicated to the goal of running a best in class, unignorable B2B account-based marketing, and inbound sales program.

Here are a couple of kudos from successful clients.

“I have worked with Peter many times in varied projects over the past 25 years. Peter is one of the very few strategists that can think both analytically and creatively. All his recommendations were intelligent, appropriate, creative and ultimately, very effective.”

Beau Fraser, President, The Gate Worldwide, global agency, New York

“Our brand new business development program is less than a month old, but so far we’ve won 3 new clients. The crazy part, they call in, talk to us for 10 minutes, and then say the magical words, “what are the next steps to get started.”

Our business has a new timeline that we call, BP and AP (Before Peter… After Peter) everything (including our pipeline and financial numbers) are stronger AP.”
