Looking for a consulting firm who understands your high tech business?

For 10 years Neural Impact has been helping thousands of technology firms around the world transform to a SaaS business model.

Engage with us to learn how you too can accelerate your cloud customer acquisition.

 

How We Are Different

People are emotionally driven and passionately tribal, not completely motivated by logic. To influence a prospect's buying decision, we must engage their emotions with an understanding of how the unconscious and conscious brain is wired to behave, react, reward and punish.

We know the technology industry and have 25+ years of sales and marketing expertise.

Unlike other consulting firms, we are thought leaders in neuromarketing, behavioral science and emotional engagement. Our work applies the newest research in brain science to the customer acquisition process.

How We Can Help


(click on each challenge to learn how we can help)

You have a sense of urgency. You don’t have time to educate a consultant on your industry. You want a consulting firm that already knows your business.
Unlike most sales and marketing consulting and training firms that serve customers from consumer-packaged goods to tourism, 100% of our customers are technology firms ranging from Microsoft to firms just like yours. We get it. We talk IOT, AI, CRM, ERP, Azure, IOT, CLV, churn, SEO, SaaS, MRR and more.
You want a firm that understands the changing needs of the cloud digital buyer 3.0.
Our team members have been in the technology industry for up to 30 years. We disrupt your traditional on-premise thinking, approach and processes and teach you modern cloud customer acquisition strategies.
You know your old IT messaging, sales approach and marketing isn’t working anymore. All our work is anchored in neuroscience and the latest research in neuromarketing.
We understand what motivates the buyer’s brain and how to emotionally engage them during the buying journey. We can teach best practices that will drive your conversion.
You want help increasing your cloud sales.
Many generalist management consulting firms try to do it all. We don’t. We specialize in customer acquisition and cloud business transformation only. If you need project delivery or technical road mapping, that’s not us.




If you want to expand and grow your business outside of your local domestic market, there are many things to consider. We are based in Canada, but our clients are located all around the world.

We understand the nuances and differences in the current state of the cloud market in the US, Canada, Australia/New Zealand, Europe, Middle east South Africa, Latin America and across Asia. If you want to know what is and isn’t working in these markets, we can help.
