About Us

Words matter. Words have the power to build up your brand or discourage your buyers from buying your services or products.

It doesn’t matter what you wear, how much money you make, or what you do for a living that has the ability to influence and impact others – words are the most powerful tool that you and your business can use for growth. 

It’s your choice of words that you use every day when you talk – it doesn’t matter if the words you use are with a stranger or somebody you’ve known forever. Whatever words you use, say them with confidence and assertiveness, adding on kindness and grace, and this will be a combination that’s going to benefit you for a really long time.

Words matter and they should be used to be good to one another.

For 20+ years, SGS has guided high-growth tech companies, SaaS providers, Managed Service Providers, and other B2B businesses using words, strategies, and proven tactics to grow their businesses.  

Growing a business is a thrilling, though bumpy, ride. This type of work isn’t for the faint of heart, the risk averse or those allergic to discomfort. So, if you fall into any of these categories, we are not the right fit. However, if you thrive on challenges, hard work, problem solving and innovation, then we’re a match.

This world rewards the risk-takers and the fearless who go after exactly what they want. These are our people.

Are you one of the go-getters who will look back in 20+ years and see a person who went for exactly what they wanted? Or are you going to see someone who played it safe and stayed stuck as soon they hit quick sand?

Stick with us and we’ll guide you to launch your sales and marketing and get your spark back.

We have many strategies and tactics in our tool box that are firmly grounded in content and inbound marketing principles that will get you there. In fact, we’ve dedicated an entire page to them here.
