Directive Consulting is the performance marketing agency for SaaS and Tech companies. We use Customer Generation (a marketing methodology developed by us) which focuses on SQLs and Customers instead of traditional metrics like MQLs. We offer Paid Media, SEO, Performance Creative, and Video to our clients by creating comprehensive digital marketing strategies that allow our clients to hit their SQL targets, every time.

About The Role

January 2024 was the fourth best sales month in the history of the company and (despite industry headwinds) we have experienced significant growth over the last few years and have remained true to our culture of, the best idea wins.

We're future-focused and are looking for the right Head of Sales to evolve and mature our sales organization. We have a mature sales process at Directive that is exceptionally intimate and strategic in-nature. We follow the principles of Winning By Design, but have innovated to elevate our close rates and reflect the strategic differences in a services business vs tech.

In this role, you would own the pipeline, bookings and proposals held goal, and be intimately involved in sales calls on a daily basis. Our CEO is also actively involved in sales calls on a daily basis and functions as our head of growth. You will be working and reporting directly into him.

A core opportunity for this position is the development of outbound sales practices by AEs and strict adherence to sales best practices in areas such as follow-up and account expansion.

We have five total product lines: Paid Media, SEO, Design, Marketing Ops, and Video/Creative. In addition, we have a startup package that is doubling in revenue, monthly.

To be a strong candidate, you need to be a marketing expert and understand the outcomes each service drives for SaaS companies and be able to predict with a high degree of confidence if the proposed strategy will exceed the client's objectives. We are a unique blend of high volume inbound sales paired with deep, custom pitches.

A crucial part of this role will be managing the sales team. You will have 3 direct reports across new business and will report directly into the CEO.

We value your ability to influence the pipeline as an individual contributor and believe that the ideal candidate revels in hopping on calls as much as they enjoy updating a forecast.

You will only be successful in this role if you are equally strong with sales as you are at performance marketing.
