Alysha Dominico, Co-Founder, and Sales and Communications Specialist: A Visionary's Best Year
As a leader, one of Alysha’s top strengths is identifying areas of weakness in her own business, implementing a plan to strengthen that weakness, and then scaling that solution to help her clients who may face similar challenges. This driven search for solutions pays off for the firm she co-founded, Tangible Words, and for her clients.
“An amazing woman inspiring others to be amazing too.” –Stevie Awards Judge
With this proactive leadership strategy from Alysha, Tangible Words saw a 52% increase in revenue, won three awards, and received recognition from reputable publications in 2018/2019.
Further, Alysha translated what she learned this year into creating new revenue lines for Tangible Words and diversifying their marketing services.
One of Alysha’s priorities is continuous learning. In 2018/2019 she implemented theory from three business books and completed three HubSpot Agency courses for high-performing agencies. Alysha immediately acted on her new knowledge and designed new scalable processes, project templates, checklists, and training sessions for Tangible Words.
The new systems helped improve sales and client-onboarding processes, and to revise inbound marketing operations. Alysha required Tangible Words team members to document every step, allowing them to help their clients transform their sales and onboarding processes and revise their own in-house operations.
“Excellent work standardizing business practices and tools.” –Stevie Awards Judge
“Now everything is tracked and supported, where we used to have to chase leads, now they come to us through a comprehensive system that never lets an opportunity be forgotten.” Jordan Tidey: Senior Consultant, MDB Insight.
With Alysha’s scalable systems in place, her team racked up results for the firm’s clients during this past fiscal year. For one client, Tangible Words’ rebuilt their website, transformed their sales process, and brought in $135K net new revenue and influenced over $450K in revenue with relevant industry-specific inbound content.
By working with Tangible Words, another client was able to open doors with key decision-makers. As a result, their sales team closed $600K net new business in 6 months.
