C Suite level executives have new secret weapon: BLACKBELT DIRECT INC. Companies needing fresh customer relationship marketing solutions can turn to Black Belt Inc., a new company making its debut. Black Belt Inc., founded by Tony Branda, provides on demand CRM consultants.

BLACKBELT DIRECT INC creates centers of excellence to maximize return on investment. The primary function of BLACKBELT DIRECT INC CRM consultants is to provide customer relationship marketing solutions as well as serve as business intelligence consultants and data strategists. Other services include customer acquisition and management, digital marketing strategy and marketing and social intelligence.

“CEO's are tired of the siloed marketing, analytical and database functions. These organizational islands have held back sustainable revenue growth, created infighting and have led to non-fact based decision making. CEO's, CMO's and CIO's are turning to my team of CRM consultants to clean up the governance models that have prevented organizational inertia and desire for a more defined competency based center of excellence approach,” says Branda.

BLACKBELT DIRECT INC offers organizational design, marketing strategy and planning and enterprise data strategy which includes data warehousing, architecture, Meta data management, ETL tool selection, data quality and a marketing technology roadmap. Branda and his team will provide governance, engagement and interaction models, planning and process development, and more.

“The C Suite doesn't really want to outsource critical functions such as CRM, business intelligence and channel interactions to service providers. C Suite executives are becoming more skeptical of firms who are pushing only outsourced services. The CEO's and CMOs of tomorrow want to build integrated contact, database and analytics capabilities that connect the dots and drive organic growth. BLACKBELT DIRECT INC drives that growth,” reiterates Branda.

BLACKBELT DIRECT INC has a series of proprietary frameworks and roadmaps that help companies build revenue generating capabilities. Branda and his team will not try and convince the C Suite executives to outsource to a marketing or third party service provider unless the business cases warrants outsourcing due to economies of skill and scale. BLACKBELT DIRECT will encourage an honest evaluation of all options.
