We are excited to launch this new site and online community that gives members 24/7/365 access to training resources and expert support

The Whale Hunters®, a strategic sales coaching company that helps small businesses find and close large accounts, announced today the launch of its new online community, Pier9. The new site marks the re-launch and rebranding of the company originally founded in 2004, and makes the proprietary business development methodology, The Whale Hunters Process™, available to members online for the first time.

The proprietary process gives small businesses a systematic, repeatable method for finding and closing accounts that are typically five to twenty times larger than a company’s average customer. Hundreds of businesses using the process have been able to grow and insulate recurring revenue, in spite of tough economic conditions, and have closed name brand accounts including Dell, Cisco, Sears, Baskin Robbins, Eli Lilly, Under Armor, Insight and Papa John’s.

Pier9 members can access beginner, intermediate and advanced training content on the process, as well as related training resources in various formats like podcasts, online courses, live webinars and teleconferences. Training is designed to introduce whale hunting concepts to companies new to the process, and to help existing members continually assimilate and integrate the methodology into their own organizations. Pier9 also gives access to a team of in-house experts and other trained members, offering individualized deal coaching and hard-to-find industry and customer research.

"Whale hunting is a powerful sales method proven over years of implementation, which involves the entire organization, and ultimately transforms the company’s culture,” said Margie Traylor, CEO of The Whale Hunters. “We are excited to launch this new site and online community that gives members 24/7/365 access to training resources and expert support as they integrate whale hunting into their businesses every day.”

The Whale Hunters Process is designed to help small businesses serving any industry learn how to accelerate revenue growth by training the entire company to participate in the sales process, and by taking a proactive and deliberate approach to business development overall. Two Pier9 membership options, Basic and Premier, allow business owners and entrepreneurs to sample free content and cost-effectively consume training content whenever and however they prefer.
