Reigniting Our Core Mission: Empowering Small and Medium Sized Business Growth

Getting Back to Our Roots: Why Ignite Strategies’ Mission Matters More Than Ever

In the ever-evolving landscape of small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), the journey towards growth and success is fraught with challenges. At Ignite Strategies, a recent period of reflection has reaffirmed our commitment and a return to our foundational purpose — a cause born out of necessity, driven by a hands-on, experiential understanding of the unique hurdles SMBs face, and anchored in a desire to provide a tangible solution.

The Catalyst for Our Founding

Identifying the Gap

Back in 2015, the inception of Ignite Strategies was not just a business venture; it was a response to a glaring need within the SMB community. Our founder, Joel Emery, experienced and recognized a recurring dilemma: SMBs struggling to unlock their growth potential due to the absence of accessible, high-quality sales and marketing expertise.

The Burden of Juggling Roles

SMB leaders often found themselves spread too thin, managing multiple facets of their business simultaneously. This not only hindered their ability to focus on growth-oriented activities but also impacted their work-life balance, leading to burnout and stagnation. In fact, a recent report from salesforce indicates that  66% of Small to Mid Sized Businesses owners and leaders carry direct responsibility for 3 or more key business areas, including Sales, Marketing, Operations, HR, IT, Accounting, or Product Development.

Our Purposeful Response

Crafting a Solution

Ignite Strategies was founded with a clear purpose: to equip businesses with the strategic and tactical support needed for growth, without the financial burden of hiring full-time executive leadership. We envisioned a model that provided fractional expertise in sales and marketing—offering the insight, execution, and accountability needed to drive sustainable growth.

Why Our Mission Is More Relevant Than Ever

The Evolving SMB Landscape

As the business world has shifted, with digital transformation and market dynamics presenting both opportunities and challenges, our mission has never felt more pertinent. SMBs continue to navigate a complex environment where strategic agility and operational efficiency are paramount to success.

Addressing Persistent Challenges That All Businesses Face

The challenges of alignment between sales and marketing, the integration of systems and automations, and the effective execution of growth strategies remain significant hurdles for many SMBs. These are the areas where Ignite Strategies excels, providing a structured pathway to overcoming these obstacles.

How We Solve the Challenges

Through Strategic Insight and System Optimization

We start with a deep dive into each business, tailoring our strategies to meet specific needs and optimizing systems for maximum efficiency. Our approach ensures that sales and marketing efforts are not only aligned but also supported by the right technology and processes.

By Prioritizing Execution and Accountability

Execution is where plans come to life. We ensure the seamless implementation of strategies, with a focus on measurable outcomes and continuous improvement. Accountability mechanisms, such as data-driven scorecards and regular review meetings, keep everyone focused and aligned with the goals.

Our Renewed Commitment

Reflecting on why Ignite Strategies was created has sharpened our focus on the core purpose and calling that drives us. Today, more than ever, we are committed to being the strategic partner SMBs need to navigate their growth journeys successfully.

Our renewed dedication to our founding mission is not just about addressing the immediate challenges SMBs face; it’s about contributing to a future where these businesses not only survive but thrive, harnessing their full potential for growth and innovation.
