“No distant, 50,000 foot view of what you should do as a business. We won't provide cookie cutter programs, fancy reports, theories and graphs. Instead, we roll up our sleeves and work directly with you to help implement our strategies and realize the results that you expect for your business,” says Rob Gilbert, President of Rainmaker. “We have a thorough understanding of MPS from initial appointment through the close.”
”One of the first things that make us different is our uniquely focused study of a client’s sales cycle as part of our initial research, because we believe that you can’t market a product or service unless you understand how to sell it,” explains Ron Harris, CEO of Rainmaker Strategies. “Secondly, we are an actual operating sales and marketing company. We have the full ability to reach well beyond the traditional marketing mediums.”
"Rainmaker is totally independent in our philosophy. So we offer straight forward, unbiased strategies and advice based on our time and tenure in the industry," adds Gilbert. “We’ve even created the world’s first online MPS (Print Management) training program.”
The company’s founders Ron Harris and Rob Gilbert are seasoned imaging industry veterans with 35 years combined sales, marketing and business experience, both domestic and international. Harris owned and operated a multi million dollar marketing company, Global Branding Group, for more than 12 years and over the last 5 years has served as a director of marketing for Nupro, LLC and International Laser Group, and as a marketing consultant for UNINET Imaging. Mr. Gilbert has worked as a senior sales rep and major account rep, as sales manager with Ikon Office Solutions, and VP of Sales for an independent dealer in Virginia. He also worked as VP of Sales with SalesChain, and Director of Sales with Compass Sales Solutions; software companies focusing on sales strategies and MPS implementation, as well as Director of Managed Print Services with International Laser Group.
