Performance gaps in growing companies come from talent gaps. Lean Labs is hired as an extension of sales and marketing teams to attract your target customers to your website, convert leads and nurture opportunities.
Who’s NOT On Our Team
Sal the Salesperson
We don’t promise the world in order to close the deal.
We don't farm out your design/dev/copy.
While you're hiring us to lead, we also listen.
Max the Manager
Nobody "manages your account" - you'll work directly with our top talent.
We show up ready to work and love what we do.
Junior Level Jim
We don't push your project to junior level talent.
As our reputation hinges upon the quality of work we do, we guarantee we’ll provide value before we profit. As such, we strive to deliver quality over quantity in all things. The value of hiring Lean Labs includes two key parts: The value of the services we provide & the value of what you become as a result.
We never rest on our last great idea. We continually improve ourselves so we can continually innovate for our clients. We put high priority on professional development so we can always be growing, adapting, scaling, and innovating.
We thrive on “mojo.” We absolutely love what we do and who we do it with. Enthusiasm and energy are two qualities we always bring to the table, and we look for clients who do the same.
We value (and enjoy) doing the work. Growth and breakthroughs always follow execution. The only way to ensure a result is to deserve it, and the way to deserve it is by doing the work. We look for opportunities to push ourselves and clients into new territory. That's what growth is. Growth always follows hustle. We love the hustle because it makes us uncomfortable, stretches us, and we know what's right around the corner.
We work transparently and share openly our processes, plans, and progress. Part of this transparency is so that we are all focused on the right activities to achieve the right goals. The other part of transparency is driven by what we see as our duty to prove our value on every project, every month, so that you can trust that working with Lean Labs is not an expenditure, it’s an investment in achieving your objectives.
There is greatness in your vision and your company. Why settle? Why cut corners? Lean Labs will be disciplined in building the right thing, the right way, at the right time, with the right team. Each thing we build must aim to be remarkable, otherwise it’s a waste of time.
We are called to be a set apart people. It should be evident in everything we do. Our business ethics are founded and grounded on Biblical principles. We are not only accountable to these core values, but to our clients and the Most High as well.
Lean Labs started as a two person web design / dev shop in 2002, founded by Kevin Barber. After a decade (and growth to a three person shop), Kevin became dissatisfied with doing websites for companies that had no marketing plan.
In early 2013, NPS (original company name) rebooted into Lean Labs, which narrowed its focus to building high conversion websites for deserving brands. High conversion websites need steady traffic in order to convert leads and fill sales pipelines, and this is why we adopted Inbound Marketing.
In the three years that followed the reboot (2014-2016), Lean Labs has more than tripled in revenue and is now a team of 12, working remotely from around the world to 10X the traffic, leads, and opportunities of our clients.
“If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary.”
“Get around the right people. Work with positive, goal oriented people who encourage and inspire you.”
“Most people fail in life not because they aim too high and miss, but because they aim too low and hit.”
“Don't find customers for your products. Find products for your customers.”
“There's no elevator to success... you have to take the stairs.”
“What we fear doing most is usually what we most need to do.”
“It doesn’t matter how much ‘real’ (objective) value you have baked into your product if your customers don’t perceive that value.”
“Our greatest challenges should be those we give ourselves to reach our full potential.”
Our goal isn’t to become big. Our goal is to be great. If we took on too many clients at one time, there’s no way we could operate as an extension of each client's team.
We limit our 10X retainers to 10 deserving brands and split our work into two sprints per month. This enables us to work with no more than five clients at a time, a number we manage well.
Some teams want to grow with us, meaning we’re their growth partner for many years. Other clients want to outgrow us, as they grow they start to backfill full time team members into our system and process, moving us to other gaps or on to our next client adventure. We’re fine with both.Hire Us
