Tina Xiang

Marketing Enablement Manager

Born in Indiana and raised in Massachusetts, Tina returned to the Midwest for college and has lived in Saint Louis ever since. After graduating from WashU, she jumped headfirst into the fast-paced startup space, where she soon found herself leading and scaling the Content Department for one of the fastest growing companies in Missouri. Since then, she has held positions in the education and biotech industries, where she continued to develop digital marketing strategies and automated processes that drove revenue. No stranger to innovation or rapid growth, Tina leapt at the opportunity to join the AK Ops team as the Marketing Enablement Manager.

In her spare time, Tina loves eating spicy food, training and competing in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, volunteering with BBBS, and hanging with her two dogs, Kai and Benji.

From Amy:

“After three years of fractional support with raving client reviews, I have constantly been thinking of ways to incorporate her talents into our business. Tina’s work, delivery and partnership is barnone. She works at the speed of light while ensuring utmost quality and full understanding of the clients needs. The moment AK Ops needed additional marketing services brought in-house, I knew she was the one. Again, grateful for Mallory’s network who has led so many Sharp Chicks, especially Tina.”

Our clients rock

Crowdsmart

As a small startup, we were challenged to develop new qualified leads and a robust pipeline quickly. Instead of hiring an army of SDRs, training them, and managing them going forward, we chose a modern sales approach with AK Ops. AK Ops are experts in digital marketing and lead development techniques. They developed a dynamic process to drive quality outbound communication and lead generation. They complemented this approach with weekly analytics to manage our progress. This allowed us to focus on the most important work of turning these leads into customers.

I believe the most important factor that can make or break a startup is having the right people in place on your team as you work to execute your strategy. More than anything else, this is why we have been thrilled with AK Operations – and not just AK herself… this especially includes Mallory first, and now Christy and Sara!

In 90 days, Amy and team have been instrumental in most of the areas I would consider critical to our go-to-market success, including:

  • Contributing greatly with ongoing thought leadership and solid, foundational planning
  • Assisting us in identifying the right data points and patterns as we look to measure results.
  • Providing us with the ability (and agility) to iterate quickly as we continue to look for ways to accelerate our progress.
  • They balance a wealth of experience and know-how with creativity and collaboration.
  • They are aligned with our goals with a passionate commitment towards achieving results.

If you are a revenue leader and your priority this year is to build a successful, scalable, and predictable revenue machine in the ever-chaotic world of startup sales, AK Operations should be your first call!

Streamloan

AK operates as a true part of our team – especially Anna and Sara. They are analytical, thoughtful, data driven, and fun to work with on sales & marketing – and their technical ability to manage our CRM/Hubs platform is strong. AK rolls up their sleeves to be a true team player, jumping into whatever is needed to make the business successful. They are creative and agile in nature, which is important as we learn to scale our GTM efforts.

BotDoc

Imagine waking up every day with an average of 3-4 emails a day from warm leads that are being forwarded over to you. Sound too good to be true? That’s what I thought before working with AK Ops and Danielle Matthews. They are “difference makers” inside and outside of the workplace. They truly go above and beyond for their clients. Danielle is a rockstar. She is encouraging, disciplined, and equally determined as I am. I am glad to have her as my account manager.

AK Ops has been amazing! They quickly enhanced our HubSpot and created a top of funnel lead machine. Amy and Shelby put together marketing and sales sequences that immediately generated hundreds of MQLs and several meetings. I’m very impressed with the team and am not hesitating to continue working with AK Ops.
