Ineffective Lead Generation
A steady flow of high-quality leads is vital for sustained growth. Yet, businesses often grapple with strategies that miss the target audience or lack compelling messaging, leading to a limited pipeline of new customers.
“Since joining Visualsoft in 2005, Tim has been instrumental in the company’s growth; directly responsible for developing the new business strategy to grow the company from an initial handful of clients to a portfolio now over a thousand strong.
Tim is a highly experienced sales leader and enjoys a hands-on, results-oriented approach to business development, revenue generation and process optimisation.”
Tim is one of the most complete individuals I have had the pleasure of working with, it doesn’t matter the topic he can always add immense value and challenge your thinking positively. His near-clairvoyance is unparalleled, and I’ve lost count of the times I thought ‘Tim said this would happen’! Sales and marketing are often hovering close to the edge of friction. Yet, in my opinion, Tim’s ability to understand the nuances of both disciplines helps him stand out as a commercial leader and maximise the uncapped value of a true sales and marketing machine.
Tim Johnson is one of the most outstanding sales leaders I’ve ever met. His knowledge, experience, and passion is inspirational. What Tim has achieved with Visualsoft is amazing, and the team he has built around him reflect the success that Tim and Visualsoft have achieved. Tim also creates some of the most amazing content on social media, his posts on LinkedIn generate great engagement and provide top insight and tips. I would highly recommend Tim and Visualsoft to anyone who has the opportunity to work with him.
Often as a Founder you’re not sure what to do next, there’s always many things you could do. As soon as we began talking it was clear that Tim is one of those people who has actually been there and done it not just read some books. He quickly understood where I was in my journey and what the plan was. Then he quickly clarified what my next moves should be and in which order. The session was massively impactful and is helping me get growth in Reclaro. I highly recommend Tim if you’re looking for the person who has been on the full journey and learnt all the mistakes to shorten your time to reaching success.
We heard about Tim through word of mouth through friends who had used his services. After a brief consultation meeting we were blown away with his energy, enthusiasm and enterprise. He is geared to making money online and finding the right way to do it. He has continued to provide support and help through the period of our working relationship and freely gives out new ideas to help push our service. Work with this guy.
Tim has been kicking ass and taking names since the day I met him (over 20 years ago now Tim – wow we’re getting old!) . He’s always been ahead of the curve, and seems to have a clairvoyant-like ability to discern what’s next in the markets and business landscapes he works in. Happy to recommend Tim and any business he’s a leader of to anyone. A-Team sales and business development professional.
Tim is a highly accomplished CSO who is well respected among the tech and retail community. Whilst many can claim to have built a sales function from the ground up, few can match Tim’s achievements in playing a pivotal role in growing VS to be one of the UK’s largest native ecommerce platforms (in a highly competitive market), in becoming an important shareholder and seeing the business go through a private equity process with a major player in the industry. As someone from a corporate finance background, in my view, this experience makes Tim a hugely valuable resource for high-growth firms.
Worked with Tim for almost 10 years at Visualsoft, I’d best describe him as a Sales and eCommerce Wizard, he was my mentor throughout my time at VS and I’ll take the teachings of T.J throughout my career. His passion and enthusiasm for all things Sales, eCommerce and Tech related is rarely seen (I’m yet to find anyone as passionate). If you’re thinking of working for, or working with Tim in any capacity, do it! On a personal level he’s a good guy, a great laugh and will do almost anything for a good cup of tea.
Tim and I have known each other for over 8 years, and I’m lucky to have him as a mentor supporting my entire career from my time at Visualsoft through to FUTCOM. Tim’s guidance and support has always allowed me to push the boundaries with commercial selling, and apply frameworks taught by him that I still use today. In such a demanding and competitive industry, having mentors and friends in the industry like Tim has helped me develop and grow my business to where it is today. I can’t recommend him enough (thank you for all the support)!
When you get talking with Tim the depth of his experience becomes apparent and it’s obvious that he understands not just how to make a business successful but also how to make a business successful online. He clearly has a passion for helping people become a success. If you get the opportunity to work with Tim don’t miss it, he can make a real difference to your business.
A brilliant sales, eCommerce & broader business senior director. He has been/will be fundamental to Visualsoft’s impressive growth. I’d sum up Tim as having expertise, enthusiasm, compassion for others, a great leader and someone who focused on delivering the best for both the organisation and the customer. On a personal note I really enjoyed working with Tim, he is easy to get along with, a great listener & advisor + someone who I trust implicitly.
Tim is a truly humble and down to earth guy and on top of this he is a remarkable businessman, sales professional and digital marketer. His work ethic is admirable and he has done an amazing job scaling Visualsoft over the years to become a leader in retail eCommerce. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you doing business with him.
Tim is an expert in sales! His motivation, enthusiasm and passion really shows through his training. He differs from other sales representatives as he cares about the customer and tailors to his client needs. His in depth knowledge and past experiences are facinating and we can’t wait to hear more. We thoroughly enjoyed our training session with Tim and have booked for another! I would always recommend Tim to anyone who is looking for sales training. We are now waiting (and hoping) for a book as it would be a best seller!
To label Tim as a sales expert and inspirational figure is somewhat of an understatement. He is passionate, knowledgeable and the couple of hours spent in his company flew past. He has proven to be approachable and very generous in sharing his wealth of knowledge and training beyond the bounds of his own Visualsoft team. Tim is visionary in his approach to sales and explained processes, tools, sales channels, CRMs and opportunities with social media in great depth with super anecdotes in a no-nonsense insightful way.
I have known Tim for many years. During this time I have come to know him as a reliable, professional and dedicated person. I first met him when I worked as a Media Sales Manager at MI International. He is an extremely productive individual who will always reach out and go above and beyond. Tim was selected on several occasions to represent the company for specialist projects due to his outstanding success rate. A team worker with the ability to motivate others and inspire the people that surround him. I can only attest to his work, his work ethics as well as his professionalism. A real pleasure to work for and be part of his team. With Tim on your team, your team will win.
Tim’s a great people person, he’ll share his wealth of knowledge with you and coach you through different situations as part of his training structure – having had a fair bit of training from him, I can safely say that Tim is the type of person who believes that business comes from building great relationships with people, not hardline sales. He’s also very approachable, if I ever needed to ask anything or sense check any potential opportunities, I could always count on time I needed to make sure I was progressing in the right direction!
Tim is a Linkedin and Marketing Wizard and also a natural mentor. His support in using Linkedin and marketing myself and Mosaic Partners has been invaluable. Not only have I learned a loads about Linkedin as a platform, but Tim shared his wisdom and ideas around marketing and business development in a way that feels authentic to my personal and business brand, but also completely achievable – thanks Tim!
Tim is a great Sales Leader and is passionate, knowledgeable and very generous in sharing his of knowledge. He has a passion for sales, and it is evident in his approach. His understanding of the eCommerce landscape is unparalleled. If ever I need to ask anything or sense check anything in the future, Tim will be one of the first people I contact. I’m very keen to bounce ideas off him moving forward.
From the moment I met Tim I could clearly see he had a professional approach within his business area and a wealth of knowledge. This experience, education and positive attitude has helped us take our own business to new heights. Even though we have reached these heights Tim is always looking for new ideas to take our business to even newer heights and helping us to beat our competitors. I will continue to work with Tim on a regular bases as its vital to the growth of our business.
Tim was wonderful to work with at Visualsoft. He has exceptional lived expertise in leadership and motivation – and was a fantastic sounding-board. He has a solid work-ethic and a dedication to success. Forward-thinking, intelligent and a true expert in his field. A great leader. Blending the ability to mentor others, be vulnerable about his own experiences and inspire as he does so. Cheers Tim. It was a pleasure to work with you.
Tim is one of the most knowledgeable and hardest working people I’ve met within the eCommerce sector. He’s always been adept in finding solutions to problems and still to this day I see him as an essential resource when I need an insightful view or opinion on things.
Tim is a true sales leader, he is generous with sharing his vast knowledge with the team, he motivates and inspires everyone to be the best that they can. He is an all round good human and wants the best for everyone, clients and colleagues alike. Tim needs to write a book on Sales and Motivation, it will be a top seller!
Heading the sales function at VS and numerous industry awards under the belt, this guy knows his stuff. Tim started in the online space before Google itself. People like him are in the game because of their passion and the long run. With his experience in the field for more than a couple of decades, he understands the ever-evolving principles of sales and customer experience in the online world. A real believer in providing actual and tangible value.
I highly recommend and respect Tims sales training skills. I worked with Tim for a period of 3.5 years. During my time with the company I feel I learnt a lot from Tim, at one point I earned a trophy for breaking the company’s monthly sales record. My sales skills are far superior to what they were 4 years ago and I have to give him credit for the knowledge he has shared with me over the years. I believe Tim to be a credit to the company, he was my mentor, manager and today still a good friend of mine.
I’ve had two incredible training sessions with Tim so far and each one has been enriched with a vast amount of knowledge that I know will stick with me. I have very limited experience in sales, with my only real sales-focused role being in retail many years ago. Because of my lack of exposure to sales, I’ve always had certain challenges when it came to sales techniques in the past – with my main barrier being my lack of confidence. Tim really challenged this thought process, giving me new and different techniques when approaching a potential client. I actually left the office today with a burst of confidence! There are many things I will take away from this training and I already cannot wait for our next session. I highly recommend Tim to ANY person for sales training, he is fantastic!
I’ve worked at Visualsoft for two years now and although I didn’t know Tim personally before I’d started, I had followed him on LinkedIn and learnt a lot from his thought provoking and informative posts. He is well known and well respected in the North East and many people had lots of good things to say about him. That was one of the key reasons I joined Visualsoft – to learn from Tim – to be inspired, driven and developed by his expertise, guidance and wisdom. Tim has been directly responsible for my growth and career development at VS. Because of him, I am now in a role selling a product I love, far exceeding my targets and consistently learning and growing. He is a real mentor, a sales guru (the best in my opinion) and all-round great guy and I’m really thankful for everything he has done for me. Cheers Tim!
It was fantastic to work with Tim, who is an exceptional CSO. I had the pleasure of working with Tim for five years and he is one of the most hardworking, dedicated managers and leaders I have ever met. His knowledge of Sales is inspirational. If you get the opportunity to be a part his team, his training is by far the best I have ever received. Tim has over 20 years of sales experience and his knowledge on the subject is apparent by how articulate and passionate he is when delivering training. Tim is very approachable, he is always there to offer advice and guidance. It’s clear from the way he treats his staff that he wants them to grow and excel in their field. He also encourages a culture of shared knowledge and experience within his team and makes sure everyone is heard and feels included.
During my time working with Tim at Visualsoft I can’t speak highly enough about his sales knowledge and training sessions that genuinely opened my eyes. I worked with Tim for 2 years and have learned a great deal, he is a fantastic coach and helped motivate me many times. I have no doubt that many of the sales techniques Tim taught to me will be a great future asset for my career.
Having worked with Tim for almost 12 years at Visualsoft, I can confidently vouch for his eCommerce knowledge and expertise – he knows the industry inside out, and is genuinely passionate about delivering the best online retail experiences. A master of sales and prospecting, Tim has coached and mentored many colleagues across the company and beyond, and he enjoys imparting wisdom wherever possible. He’s an ideas man, 100% focused and driven, and plays a pivotal role in the incredible growth of Visualsoft.
Tim’s approach is formed from a comprehensive background of sales experience in multiple industries, over 2 decades. Being a director and founder of Visualsoft he is a fountain of knowledge. His ability to attune himself to anyone and his communication is second to none, when you’re in the room with Tim you’re engaged from the minute you walk in to the moment you walk out. Tim has given me considerable support over the past few months and I have seen a spike in my development because of this my own confidence has peaked giving me month on month increase in sales numbers, continuously billing more and more.
