About BlueByrd

People ask us why we named our company BlueByrd. The reason is, we think it is an auspicious name. In sales terms, a bluebird refers to a lucrative and unexpected sales lead. Quite often bluebirds are associated with luck, but at BlueByrd we think of luck a bit differently than most.


Why do some people seem to have more luck than others? We think luck happens when you position yourself to be in situations that lead to better outcomes, and if you know what luck looks like, you tend to recognize lucky opportunities so you can act on them. And if you know the right things to do when you act, your outcomes are better. Then people say “Wow, you are always so lucky.”


We think bluebirds can be methodically generated, and that is what we do at BlueByrd. We help our clients find, close, and capitalize on sales opportunities so that they can drive greater revenue.
