About us

Our

History

The Internet contributed to the rise and exponential growth of large US companies causing a radical change in the world of Sales.

Since its foundation in 2011, NextSales supports companies in developing, building and maintaining sustainable business relationships within the Benelux and the rest of Europe. Trust plays an important role in many European companies when it comes to establishing business relationships. In Europe a large part of the procurement process is handled through the Internet. However when it comes to bigger decisions a trusted business partner is very important.

NextSales does not only provide Sales & Marketing expertise. By leveraging our NextSales Ambassador Network we can support you in addressing all your management challenges!

NextSales and the NextSales Ambassador Network

The NextSales Ambassador Network was launched in 2015 to provide SMEs access to similar resources as large corporates. Members of the network are experienced professionals, managers, professors, entrepreneurs, military personnel (retired) and civil servants from the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and Switzerland.

Since 2015, the NextSales Ambassador Network has developed into a thinktank with more than 200 members who support our clients in many more areas than Sales & Marketing.

NextSales Ambassador Network

The Idea

The original idea behind the NextSales Ambassador Network was: Create a level playing field for SMEs.

If large multinationals want to increase their business with a client, they have the finances to engage lobbyists and advisors. Moreover, these companies can afford to pursue an opportunity for a long time.

SMEs often do not have this ability, while they often have more innovative solutions.

How we think

Our working Principles

Our principles: Ethics, Sustainability and knowing people

Europe is not the US

The biggest mistake you can make when trying to do business in Europe is thinking that it is similar to the US.

In the Nordic countries these differences are perhaps not so big, but the moment you start descending from the Netherlands, you will be in another world. People prefer speaking their native language (which isn’t English) and are looking for business partners they know and trust.

One of NextSales added values is that we are already networked in these countries. 

It's who you know

Sales & Marketing in the B2B segment on the European continent is a profession. Although at least 60% of the search for new suppliers takes place via the internet and tools such as BI and AI are getting better and better, the difference between a deal and no deal is still in people.

ethics

Building sustainable client relationships requires ethical behavior on the part of the supplier. NextSales only supports companies that match our convictions.

We support the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations. We offer equal opportunities to everyone in our network. In addition, we offer support to relevant companies on the basis of "pro bono" or reduced rates. Read more about our commitment to Sustainability.

We work

Sustainable

  1. During the execution of our assignments we work in a sustainable way. Think about responsible and above all less travel
  2. Companies and institutions that try to achieve the 17 objectives we offer our services on a “pro bono” or reduced rate basis
  3. Through our NextinVision initiative, we help companies turn the challenge of sustainability into opportunities!

We ensure minimizing our carbon footprint. We use as many modern means of communication as possible.We use teleconferencing and video conferencing to avoid travel.

If we travel we use public transport as much as possible.

Within Europe we prefer to take the train and avoid the plane.

How we support

The United Nations has set 17 Sustainable Development Goals. The first and most important goal is to end extreme poverty. Other objectives include combating hunger, improving health, improving the quality of – and access to – education. We are committed to all of these objectives.
