Marc Freedman's Experience
Founder and CEO
February 2013 – Present (4 months)
Breakthrough Marketing has created a science out of maximizing each step in the marketing and sales funnel. We've packaged our program and technology in a powerful strategic marketing system called Revenue Typhoon that can triple your sales.
It's far more effective and less expensive that typical marketing. Assuming you could even afford it, you don't need a professional salesperson ... or an expensive marketer. We do it all for you. Revenue Typhoon rains down revenues and lets you focus on delivering product and services, not painful marketing. It's Selling without the Salesman (or woman).

Now you don’t have to. We bring Silicon Valley to you … whether you’re located in San Jose, Dallas like me, or anywhere else in the world.
