Creating and Implementing Internet 2.0 Business Strategies


Creating and Implementing Internet 2.0 Business Strategies

The Internet is a core competency to many companies, however many companies are missing the real opportunity the web can provide to increase sales coverage, improve customer service and drive profitability. Having a web site is not enough. Having an integrated Web Presence that aligns product and marketing strategy with sales execution across the company is crucial to success. A marketing maxim is “Be where the customer is” and for most companies that is not at their website. For many companies their web site is like a store on a back street with few visitors and fewer buyers. SAMC will lead management through a web strategy process to develop an effective Web Presence that finds new customers while increasing sales to existing ones.

Turnaround Planning and Execution


Turnaround Planning and Execution

When companies are in trouble, they need a quick turnaround or may quickly slide into insolvency. Even technically insolvent companies may still be viable due to strong customer bases, good products, technology or intellectual property. SAMC will work with owners or secured parties to determine if a turnaround is viable and if so, what the likely outcome might be. Probable outcomes for owners and secured parties are estimated and a proposed timetable is established. Risks are identified and progress can start quickly to save good companies. In the event a full financial restructuring is required, SAMC will partner with a specialist firm.
