Relationship to Major Tom:
Bellrock met Major Tom when both of our companies had different names and both of our companies were trying to survive the 2008 financial meltdown. Bellrock worked with Major Tom to implement cash flow forecasting systems, sales process, organizational structure, leadership development and strategic planning.
When asked in 2010 if he was happy with their relationship, John Blown, Major Tom's Co-Founder said, "Immediately I saw the impact of their work. The changes in orientation and structure have played a major role in our company having its two best sales months ever in its history. We have experienced at least a 5:1 return and are 100% happy with their work."
The relationship, however, was far from one-sided. Major Tom helped Bellrock develop its online persona, Google Ads campaigns, and SEO. Results were immediate, but also long-lasting. Even today, many of Bellrock's customers come from a Google search. "I never would have believed it," said Tara Landes, Bellrock Founder, "but I am so pleased we invested early to get Major Tom's help. It's still paying dividends a decade later."
