My name is Chris Scafario. I am the Director of Marketing Services at DVIRC, a leading economic development organization in the Greater Philadelphia region. Each year we work with hundreds of highly advanced manufactures. My role is to develop the processes and services that contribute to the top line growth of these organizations.

My Lead Generation Service has been designed to target 100 or more company specific decision makers with the unique selling points of my client’s business. I use a structured process for growth that includes a detailed plan for market positioning, new database creation, 4 points of direct outreach and a rigorous inside sales follow up component with real time feedback.

My Business Growth Services are recognized by Leading Banks, Business Owners, Economic Development Experts, and University Professors as being the area’s most cost effective way to jumpstart flat revenue growth. And, 8 out of 10 of the Businesses I work with have gone on to request additional work from my team or refer us to their friends and associates.

My deliverables on any one project can easily create a double or even triple digit impact to any organization’s top line sales. If you are looking to get serious about growth, you need to get serious about Lead Generation.
