Six months since my February 2013 update. Six months since any real activity on the blog should tell you a lot about how busy I’ve been.
The contract that I started at the beginning of the year is ending on August 1st (this Friday). It’s been a crazy first two quarters, and a lot has been achieved. The strategic plan that was executed early on in the year is certainly showing a great return today. The networking and marketing efforts has set Citizen39 up for a great deal of work in the next half of the year.
We’ve already started a couple of other new contacts, and have two more that are approved but waiting for agreements/contracts to be signed off. The expected upcoming work includes a variety of things, such as; SharePoint deployments, custom software and database development, and web and eCommerce work.
Sales and Marketing
For this next quarter, the focus will be on sales and marketing. Interesting is that the company did not have to do much sales and marketing to get the business it is getting today. Companies are coming to us for help, which is nice.
We’re about to engage a resource for the development of a marketing plan, and then we’ll be executing on it shortly thereafter. Considering how busy we already are with the work we have, a solid sales and marketing strategy is going to rocket the company towards even more success.
Speaking of hiring resources, a strategic goal this quarter is to bring on some like-minded folks to help Citizen39 grow. Interested?
We need people who are passionate about helping other people. SharePoint, Office 365, and web application development are all areas of fast growth for us. Project Managers, Business Analysts, and Senior Systems Analysts are what we need. We’ll pay you well, but more importantly, you’ll become a core member of the Citizen39 family, and will enjoy the benefits and rewards that employee ownership brings.
