Answers (for your due diligence)

What is a growth firm?

A growth firm is focused on one thing: aggressive gains against the growth metrics that matter most to you. Growth firms ignore vanity metrics, are slow to sell pre-packed deliverables, and are relentless toward thinking of new ways to expand your influence. We are your Growth Partner for what’s next, your biggest problem, your most important opportunity, and your toughest competitors. We maximize your revenue, relevancy, and impact.

Do you have an industry focus?

Our process is industry agnostic, and our partners prefer it this way. This is how we shed industry paradigms and strategize boldly on your behalf. However, we have achieved consistent results for consumer packaged goods brands, national non-profits, banking & finance, energy, higher education, and more.

What sort of ROI is typical?

It’s impossible to accurately predict ROI until we are fully immersed in a partnership. Our best results have come after we’ve fully researched the landscape our partners find themselves in. Our growth practices have yielded aggressive gains exceeding 600+% revenue growth, market-share capture in excess of 6x, millions of dollars in donation increases, 2x EBITDA growth, and brand awareness leaps from the bottom of the pack to the top. As your Growth Partner we’re ready to tackle the growth goals you’re ready to exceed.

How long have you been doing this?

Our growth practices began by partnering with telecommunications giant Ameritech in the mid-’90s. In the 30 years to follow, we’ve expanded our practices across industries and timezones to better serve our partners’ growth.

What will this partnership look like?

Prolific spends significant time, energy, and resources to ensure every one of our partners is fully equipped to achieve their growth goals. While a partnership is an investment from both parties, the impact from our strategies will be remembered far after the initial investment is forgotten.

Prolific History

Our history is dated back to 1987 when we began providing strategic planning and advertising sales strategies to enterprise-level clients. Since then, we’ve sold to media giants and acquired and started a handful of companies. Along the way, we formed Prolific to combine our marketing experience with growth strategy and growth capital to give our partners all they need to exceed their growth goals.
