Testimonial

“We have found that in this era, and in our markets, with the wall of noise so high and thick, the ability to reach your audience via email or content syndication alone, doesn’t work. What we have found is that a combination using a service like Corey’s produces significantly better results. Not only is Corey himself the best sales leader and trainer I have known, his troops are very well trained and they create the most amazing scripts that actually work. We have used Corey’s team for over two years now and continue to use him with customers that have the vision and foresight to look beyond short term ROI and use CLV as the metric for marketing success. In addition, Corey is fair, is always looking for mutual wins, and is a thoroughly class act in a field dominated by flight by night. I can’t recommend the Branch49 Team more strongly.”

Steve King,
CISM CISSP Managing Director

Building trust, getting others involved and creating a culture of recognition and success is something Corey Frank and the Branch49 team has mastered. Winning is in their blood, dedication to success runs through his veins, his hands-on approach with his clients and team members makes him one of best sales motivators and coaches I have ever worked with or in the industry. He leads by example and his teams are the best in the industry because of it. He will teach you to dig deep-grab a shovel and learn from the best.”
