Lingotek Needs Online Marketing/Sales Manager

My friend Tim Hunt, a venture-backed entrepreneur whose company Lingotek is located at the Novell Open Source Incubator in Provo, called me the other day and said they have a new job opening for someone in internet marketing and sales.

I told him I would blog about the new position. His company has funding, a lot of momentum, and they are generating lots of buzz in the translation industry. Many leads are coming in every day. They have a powerful business model that takes advantage of the network effect. The last time I saw an exciting and innovative business model in Utah was Logoworks. I think Lingotek has a bright future.

    Thanks for that information! Actually , I have a friend who is unemployed and lives in Utah. I’ll ask him if he is interested with the job. Better yet let him visit Lingotek for more information.

    I did Junto with Tim. He’s a great guy. I haven’t heard how LingoTek has been doing for about a year now, but I know it was looking good then.

    Tim if you read this, I’m glad to hear things continue to move for you!

    We are a sales back office for technology companies and we help outsource functions like first level Lead Generation and building Collaterals and profiling channel partners. We have interacted with channels in the US and government focused resellers.

    We can setup a very cost effective 1 man team here to accomplish what are looking for:

    – Collateral Preparation (whitepapers, tech papers, business model, Marketing presentations, etc)
    – Our facility is completely backed with a VOIP and 24X7 internet access. This gives us a connection with Lingotek customers at all times. We can generate Leads, follow up with them and qualify them for you to take to closure.The team can work in US times (if required)
    – We can also prepare webinars and online presentations using Free desktop sharing tools like MyIVO or Instacoll to help Lingotek attract more customers.

    It would be great if i could be directed to the best people in Lingotek with whom i could discuss this. We are based in India with a local representation in Utah.

    Looking forward to hearing from you,
    Best,
    Sam
