Vendere Partners to Acquire Content Marketing Firm, Shumway, Ink.

Written by Vendere Partners. Posted in VenderePartners.com

Vendere-Logo-colorDALLAS, TX, January 29, 2014 — Vendere Partners, a leading B2B sales and marketing agency, today announced that it is in the process of acquiring Shumway, Ink., an Austin-based content marketing company that provides professional writing and marketing services to B2B and B2C companies nationwide. The acquisition will become a new Vendere business division, headed by Bronmin Shumway, founder and president of Shumway, Ink. The division will serve as the cornerstone of Vendere’s converged sales and marketing expansion strategy.

Shumway, Ink. has been a Vendere partner since late 2011. When Vendere experienced a 20% increase in annual revenue in 2013, Vendere founders Jim Alkire and Sean O’Neil noted Shumway, Ink.’s contributions and recognized the potential for greater growth.

“Shumway, Ink.’s content marketing abilities have certainly contributed to our growth,” said O’Neil. “Year over year, we continue to reinvent ourselves to stay ahead of the competition and add value to the customer. We also share the tools and best practices we develop with our customers so that they can share in our success. We believe acquiring Bronmin and her team will enable us to provide a great deal of value to our customers moving forward.”

Continued O’Neil, “We are most excited about the results we’ve achieved by converging Shumway, Ink.’s content marketing services with our core lead generation and sales services. We’ve managed to all but eliminate the gaps that exist between traditional sales and marketing departments—not just internally, but for our clients.”

In 2013, Vendere and Shumway, Ink. worked together to develop IRENE™, an automated e-mail marketing methodology that is now being utilized to build brand awareness, drive sales and generate revenue for some of the world’s largest B2B technology companies and their many channel partners. Vendere’s founders anticipate that with the acquisition of Shumway, Ink. and the addition of more innovative services like IRENE™, Vendere will experience a 40% increase (based on its current customer base) in revenue in 2014.

“In our space, most companies either sell lists, leads or telemarketing. We plan on doing so much more,” explained O’Neil. “By converging Shumway, Ink.’s content marketing services with Vendere’s core services, we’re already creating comprehensive sales and marketing packages that deliver excellent results, fast.”

Acquiring Shumway, Ink. and creating a new content marketing division will enable Vendere to provide its clients with an even more robust suite of writing and marketing services, including content marketing strategy development and publishing services. Traditionally, sales and marketing or lead generation agencies look for list providers or other lead generation organizations to acquire; Vendere is seeking to complement its core services and serve a broader customer base.

Shumway gave her reasons for joining the Vendere team. Said Shumway, “Our organizations have a shared vision based on putting the customers’ needs first and a deep understanding of the current market. Vendere’s lead generation capabilities and sales solutions are able to make the most out of my team’s content. I expect joining the Vendere family formally to be rewarding on a number of levels.”

Vendere’s acquisition of Shumway, Ink. will be finalized by February 3, 2014. Vendere’s new content marketing division will be based in Austin, TX.

DALLAS, TX, December 6, 2012 — Sean O’Neil, co-founder and vice president of Dallas, TX-based lead generation company, Vendere Partners, has been voted one of the 50 most influential people in sales lead management by members of the Sales Lead Management Association (SLMA). Winners were announced December 5, 2012.

“The election of the 50 most influential people in sales lead management is an event sponsored annually by the SLMA. Winners are both nominated and voted for by their peers,” explained Ronald P.

The men and women chosen were chosen because of their exemplary performance in furthering all aspects of sales lead generation and management.”

According to the SLMA website, O’Neil was nominated for helping Vendere Partners add 250 companies to its client list and achieve a 25% increase in growth in 2012, and for helping Vendere Partners’ Fortune 100 clients, including HP and Intel, experience significant growth in 2012.

“It is certainly an honor to be considered one of the most influential people in sales lead management,” said O’Neil. “It’s evidence that even in a challenging economy, it is possible to achieve and succeed through innovation—and hard work. It’s rewarding and inspiring to be recognized for those things.”

O’Neil is the only Dallas-Ft. Worth area lead generation professional included in the SLMA list of winners, and one of only two winners headquartered in Texas.

Vendere Partners VP Sean O’Neil Nominated as One of the 50 Most Influential People in Sales Lead Management

Written by Vendere Partners. Posted in VenderePartners.com

DALLAS, TX, November 6, 2012 — Sean O’Neil, co-founder and vice president of Dallas, TX-based lead generation company, Vendere Partners, has been nominated as one of the 50 most influential people in sales lead management. Voting takes place through November 30, 2012.

Sean’s nomination reads as follows:

“Sean O’Neil is a consummate technology sales, lead generation, and go-to-market strategist. Sean has a natural ability to generate sales opportunities and identify and meet the challenges associated with implementing complex, multi-dimensional lead generation campaigns. His strength as a leader has helped me to mature both personally and professionally. I know for a fact that Sean has met and consulted with more than 1,000 technology companies this year alone. He has a passion for sharing his knowledge and experience, whether he’s interacting with the CEO, sales leads, internal team members, or large audiences. His willingness and desire to share his expertise is evident in the articles he contributed to Parcel Magazine, Corp!, and Manufacturing Business Technology earlier this year.

“As co-founder and vice president of Vendere Partners, Sean directs the company’s sales and marketing and research and development departments. He is also responsible for overseeing the management of nearly 70 employees, and for expanding Vendere’s lead generation and technology-based solutions.

“Sean has had many successes within the technology industry. A strategic thinker and leader, Sean has been instrumental in helping Vendere Partners’ Fortune 100 clients, including HP and Intel, experience significant sales growth. He works at the executive level as a steward of the Vendere brand, and has been a key player in the company’s most successful qualified appointment setting, event audience acquisition, and lead qualification, scoring, and nurturing initiatives.

“Vendere added 250 new companies to its client list in 2012. As a result of campaigns led by Sean and performed by Vendere for Fortune 100 clients, Vendere has experienced a 25% increase in growth this year, and expects to achieve an additional 15% increase in growth by the end of Q4 2012. Without Sean, it is unlikely that such growth would be possible.

“Sean actively seeks to develop key partner relationships. In addition to generating more business, strategic partnerships enable Sean to maximize Vendere’s internal resources and improve efficiency levels across the board. Current partnerships enhance Vendere’s lead profiling and reporting capabilities and converged sales and marketing services. Through existing partnerships, Sean recently had the opportunity to assist in streamlining the lead management processes of two Fortune 500 companies.

“Under Sean’s leadership, Vendere has seen growth year over year, despite challenging economic times. Moving forward, I have no doubt that Vendere will continue to grow, thanks in no small part to the sales solutions and sales-driven campaigns that will continue to take place under Sean’s direction. These are just some of the reasons I highly recommend that Sean be selected as one of the 50 most influential people in sales lead management.”
