InFocus Stories: Pitched
Winner of Best New Business doubles team with Unlocking Potential
Andrew Hampton, Director of www.pitched.co.uk, a business who helps Holiday Parks and campsites sell holidays and holiday homes attended our last InFocus Business Espresso as a ‘Cornish Business Hero’. During the Espresso, which followed a Sales theme, Andrew told delegates about how he came to launch Pitched and how his business sales model evolved from nothing to becoming pivotal to their success.
Pitched launched two years ago and we threw ourselves into the business.
One of the biggest things you can do, when you are starting your business, is put your pride aside and reach out for help; you can’t be experts at everything.
We were given funded mentoring through the Unlocking Potential InFocus programme with Sales Consultant Trevor Lee, who helped us to understand our customer and develop our sales process. We committed to trade shows, which are expensive, but Trevor gave us the confidence and skills to present to people and attract them to buy”
Andrew reached out to Unlocking Potential and through the mentorship scheme and Unlocking Potential Jobs, Pitched has managed to double their team in four months and focussed their efforts on embedding a successful sales strategy within their business. These successes have resulted in Pitched being awarded Best New Business at the 2019 Cornwall Business Awards.
