Transformation of Email Services Company to Automation Leader

Jonathan Strimling stepped out of his role with US Dynamics for two years to lead the turnaround of a small public company in the email space, which is now known as SharpSpring. The company had historically provided a narrow product offering in email delivery services, with $6M in revenues and less than 5% growth.

During a swift two-year turnaround the company;

  • Raised $20M in three fundraising rounds, reaching the NASDAQ
  • Made two game-changing acquisitions, SharpSpring and GraphicMail
  • Grew from a team of 32 to a team of 160 people supporting on-the-ground sales in 18 countries and 13 languages
  • Emerged as a leader in the field of marketing automation for agencies and SMB’s

Revenues have tripled since that time, and the rate of adding revenues has more than quintupled. Trading volume in the stock grew by more than a factor of ten and three high-profile industry analysts picked up coverage of the stock during Strimling’s tenure (which is extremely unusual at this scale).

When Strimling joined, the company was valued at $15M, and today, the business is worth more than $100M.

Red-Hot Growth of an E-Commerce Innovator

US Dynamics launched the dominant online retailer of pellet heating fuel, woodpellets.com. The company’s innovative and patented systems for offering location-based quoting of bulk commodities targeted an under-served market and resulted in extraordinary growth. The company achieved five-fold growth for two consecutive years – a rate surpassed by only one other retailer worldwide in 2008 – which allowed the company to raise over $15M in additional capital. Along the way, the company’s sophisticated e-commerce platform achieved a 95% upsell rate (to high quality fuels) and allowed the company to command 20% pricing premiums in a commodity market

Scaling a Leading Online Service Provider 

PelletStoveService.com is the leading independent provider of quality service to the renewable heating sector. The company’s extensive experience across a wide range of equipment is unique, and provides an effective platform from which to scale the firm.

US Dynamics was retained to help develop an overall strategy for aggressive and ongoing growth.
