Navigate Sales Roadblocks with Emissary
Emissary advisors are former executives from your sales targets.
They use an insider‘s understanding of your target‘s purchasing power to help you address objections and close a deal.
How it Works
Set your targets
Provide us with a list of the prospects, people or companies where an advisor’s insight would be impactful toward meeting your goals.
We match advisors
We match your target list with advisors from our community of executives who fit your criteria. Clients are then given the opportunity to select which advisors they would like to work with.
We set up engagements between you and your selected advisors who provide insight to help you reach your goals.
There are dozens of ways teams use advisors from product development to strategy.
Here are some we find most common.
Have a deep understanding of the goals of an organization, who within the organization will care, and the type of pitches necessary in order to position yourself to win the deal.
Effectively close a deal by working with someone who formerly had buying responsibilities at your prospects and can effectively guide you through procurement and negotiations.
Sales Team Manager
Maintain quality results across the board by pairing advisors with members of your team to boost everyone's productivity.
Work with a former head of marketing to understand a prospect's existing growth tactics, their current solutions, the team's overall marketing capabilities and how your product will amplify them.
Speak with drivers of product and revenue to learn more about a prospect’s product vision in order to more effectively suggest insights to improve company KPIs to decision makers.
Connect with a former department leader who can walk you through the RFP process, how to build chemistry with a client, and what it takes to close a deal.
Learn the process behind product development in order to effectively pitch engineering teams on how you will effectively help them plan, build and run better services.
The same investors behind Uber, Lending Club, and Slack back Emissary.
What People Say About Emissary
I consulted with a safety technology provider trying to gain business at my former employer. I was able to offer valuable insight on existing programs and targeted ideas to help penetrate. It was done entirely via e-mail, was quite easy to manage and worthwhile to the company. I would definitely do this again.
Emissary Advisor, Fmr. Director of Sales
I've worked with Emissary on three pitches so far. For one pitch, our advisor's deep understanding of the clients (many of whom he worked with previously) helped us turn our presentation into a home run. They have been extremely helpful as we prepared for initial client meetings and final pitches.

When we pitch, we usually don't get a true sense for the state of our prospect's business and strategy. Emissary is able to provide us a candid understanding of business issues that effect potential clients so we can position ourselves as experts to solve for their needs. I'd recommend it to anyone who values deeply understanding their prospects before a pitch.
