Inside Revenue Ventures
Our passion is helping small companies succeed while, at the same time, solving their clients' business challenges with their products. Revenue Ventures was founded to address a common challenge shared by countless CEO's, directors of marketing and sales executives.
Why do so many small business and startup companies struggle with growing their business or in many situations fail?
When we investigated the "why", we came to the realization that many of these companies could have thrived with a better understanding of their market, a better business model, better management and less burn-through cash on hiring a sales force that were set up to fail. Simply put, these companies did not have sound strategies in place.
Backed by over a 100 years of sales, marketing and business development expertise, Revenue Ventures collabortive consotrium provides the foundation and resources necessary to optimize your company's sales and marketing vision. Exponentially increasing the odds for faster growth, higher profits and long-term stability.

Building on a successful career in management consulting and technology sales, Lance Setliff launched West 34th Street Marketing in 2005 to address the critical need for flexible direct sales for small businesses. Lance realized that many small businesses need wise, knowledgeable, enterprise sales professionals but cannot afford the salaries and benefits required to recruit and retain that caliber of employee. Combined with the fact that most sales and marketing firms either provide low-quality leads or non-quantifiable “air cover”, the need was clear for a new paradigm.
Lance has helped numerous companies increase their revenue, establish solid sales techniques, and direct their focus on profitable opportunities. His ground-breaking business model has allowed West 34th’s clients to take advantage of top-flight sales professionals without breaking the bank or going through the arduous task of repeatedly hiring, training, and then losing their top sales people. Lance served as the Vice President of Business Development for the CV-Group where he co-founded a building-centric provider of Internet services by negotiating a $1M Line of Credit and helped raise over $1M in start-up capital.
