Operating in the lower middle market (sub-$50M) presents a unique set of challenges for founders. We wear multiple hats, navigate dynamic landscapes, and constantly seek ways to propel our businesses forward. But amidst the complexity lies a hidden gem: an untapped opportunity to capitalize on sustainable growth.


Let's move beyond the traditional focus on fundraising alone. Instead, let's shift the conversation to transforming capital into enduring revenue streams. This requires a strategic approach, one that builds a resilient and adaptable business capable of weathering any storm.


At Superstruct Advisors, we've helped countless founders achieve this transformation. The premise is pretty simple around Raising Revenue:


Earn more, than you spend.


We've identified 10 key areas where laser-sharp focus unlocks the full potential of your business.


  1. Unblock Challenging Areas We all have to unclog those pipes from time and figure out why things are not working. Remain open to seeing why it is not working and unpack each area. We use a method called Stop, Start, Continue. This seems like such an unbelievably simple idea, but it really works. Be open to just listening.

  2. Know Your Numbers. Deeply. Numbers are your business's lifeblood, not just accounting figures. Master your customer acquisition cost (CAC), customer lifetime value (LTV), churn rate, and profit margins. These metrics are your compass, guiding every decision you make.

  3. Listen to What the Customer Wants: Elevate Service to New Heights. Customer loyalty is an invaluable asset. Invest in exceptional customer service that exceeds expectations. Personalize interactions, offer proactive support, and actively gather feedback. Remember, happy customers are repeat customers and brand advocates. Customers can also be clients on the b2b side or on the consumer side, and it is important you are clear on who you are talking to.

  4. Content is Everything Too: Attract and Convert with Authority. Content marketing is a long-term play, not a quick fix. Create valuable, informative content that resonates with your target audience. Utilize SEO, social media, and email marketing to distribute it strategically, establishing yourself as a thought leader in your industry.

  5. Active, Passive, and Referral-Based Sales: Diversify Your Revenue Streams. Don't rely on a single sales channel. Build a multifaceted sales engine that leverages:

    1. Active Sales: Direct outreach to new leads through targeted campaigns, cold calls, network effect.

    2. Passive Sales: Content marketing and SEO that attract organic leads. 

    3. Referral Sales: Encourage existing customers to become brand advocates.

  6. Leverage Technology for Efficiency & Growth. Embrace technology as your ally. Automate repetitive tasks, streamline workflows, and invest in tools that boost productivity and data-driven decision-making. Remember, technology fuels efficiency and empowers informed choices.

  7. Partners in Progress: Have an Accountability Partner Strategic partnerships can unlock new markets, resources, and expertise. Seek mutually beneficial collaborations with complementary businesses or industry leaders. Remember, collaboration fosters innovation and accelerates growth.

  8. Create Achievable Milestones with the Sprint Calendar The core philosophy behind the Sprint Calendar Approach is that business growth should be both sustainable and strategic. This contrasts sharply with traditional models that often push companies to aggressively expand market share, sometimes at the expense of financial health and long-term viability. We offer a 6-week Growth Sprint and then level off for 6-weeks.

  9. Give Back, Gain More: Cultivate Community and Loyalty. Corporate social responsibility isn't just trendy; it's good business. Support causes your customers care about, volunteer, and build meaningful connections. It's a win-win for brand reputation and customer loyalty.

  10. Measure, Analyze, and Adapt: Continuous Improvement is Key. Don't set it and forget it. Track your progress, analyze data, and be ready to adapt. Growth is a journey, not a destination. Embrace a culture of continuous improvement and be prepared to make adjustments based on real-time insights.


Beyond the Numbers: Building a Resilient Business

Remember, raising revenue isn't just about chasing numbers; it's about building a resilient and adaptable business that thrives in any market. By focusing on these key areas, you'll transform your company from a fragile structure into a powerful revenue-generating machine, ready to conquer new horizons.
