Is business booming right now for anyone else?

Our company primarily sells into the US.


With massive vaccine rollouts, given the industry we sell into, we have experienced an unprecedented influx in inbound business.


Is anyone else noticing this sort of growth spurt because of what they may feel is the world normalizes slightly?

Weโ€™re seeing some strong market signals as well, the live event industry getting smashed has most certainly helpedย

Virtual events companies/startups are growing and how. I signed 4 clients in March all doing the same exact thing lol

Iโ€™m curious what industry are you in? Just because youโ€™re benefiting from a lack of live events

Yes 100%. Iโ€™m in hospitality (restaurants, nightclubs, bars) so given the ability to reopen in most places, the owners are getting their confidence back. The tricky part right now is talking to people about how their current provider treated them during all of the lockdowns.ย

Yes, our inbound is insane - I am fully booked from everyday with demos. I sell a capital raising and investor management platform primarily to real estate firms.ย

Yup, but it's a hard-won game. We started making PPE so business is booming.

Absolutely. I sell conversation intelligence and the number of inbounds we've been able to get since June last year has been insane. So much that we're bringing in another AE cuz my plate is full af.ย 
What industry do you sell to?

Business is strong right now. It started to pick up in January and has been steady since. We were hit really hard in 2020 so it's nice to see the rebound.
