Identify your ideal customers. Learn where they hang out and how to get in front of them and speak their language. Make them love you.
We asked Trevor and Nichole to help us position Vervoe in the market and build a scalable, digital distribution machine. Obsessed with the “ideal customer”, they took us on a journey that changed our approach from ‘get customers’ to ‘get the right customers and help them succeed’. The outcome was an execution-ready marketing and customer success plan and a long-term partner in Inturact.

Nichole is the most passionate, hardest working, fastest learning, fiercely loyal person I’ve ever met. Period. If you get the chance to work with her, not only will she deliver amazing results in whatever she’s doing for you, you’ll never be the same (in a great way!). When Nichole speaks (or writes, or shares curated content, etc.) you’ll listen if you know what’s good for you.
No more guesswork! Get an executable strategy grounded in research to grow your SaaS startup the right way.
Your competitors are multiplying as we speak.
- Do you have a fact-based plan to differentiate your SaaS company for your target market?
- Do you worry that you’re missing something BIG (or small) that could make all the difference to your success and growth?
- Are you wondering if you’ve got the most up-to-date tools, and if you’re keeping up with the cutting edge?
Guess so? Guess not? It’s time to stop guessing.
The worst thing you can do as a SaaS company is guess. Success in SaaS is a science, founded on ideal customers, and grounded in research, data, smart tools and smarter tracking.
I’ve been developing growth strategies for top SaaS companies for over a decade and now I am now offering SaaS consulting for new clients, along with my colleague, Trevor Hatfield, Founder of Inturact.
When you fill out the form (and if we determine our expertise will, in fact, benefit you), you’ll nab one of just a few slots available for SaaS consulting this year.
Nichole is one of the most insightful and effective marketing experts that I’ve had the pleasure to work with. She is one of those rare people who I hesitate to call talented, because it would be an insult to the work and experience that she continuously puts into improving her skills. Her marketing superpower is in uncovering opportunities which not only increase visibility and brand trust, but which do so by actually improving the ability of the company to delivering value to customers over time. She also habitually passes her knowledge on to those around her, which I have been fortunate to benefit from on many occasions.
What to expect in a consulting engagement:
- We’ll meet for two, one-hour phone calls each week to focus on what you need most, so you can grow your company with confidence – and stop guessing altogether.
- We’ll deliver a playbook at the end of the six weeks to two months that will provide an executable strategy grounded in research. It will take you through problem-solution fit, language-market fit, product-market fit, and finally, to scale.
- Problem-solution fit: You have a problem worth solving and it rings a bell with your ideal customers. Includes Customer Development.
- Language-market fit: You have a strong value proposition, know how to speak to your ideal customers, know where they spend their time, and how to get in front of them. Includes Customer Success.
- Product-market fit: Being in a good market with a product that can satisfy that market.
- Scale: A strong growth strategy rooted in your Customer Development and Customer Success initiatives.
- A few hours of homework per week your end.
- At the end of the engagement, you will know your ideal customer, where they hang out, and how to get in front of them and speak their language. You will have a playbook with an executable strategy for early and long-term traction.
- You will need a budget of $11,250 per month for six weeks to two months (total: $22,500)
