What is the average size of a client?

The simple answer to this question is, we work with small business owners and large international companies alike. We specialize in organic revenue growth and our expertise takes us into all types of companies and in many different industries. With that said, if you’re looking for a sharp increase in business growth, 4X is definitely the company you will want to contact.


Our experience has taught us that no two client situations are exactly alike and that your normal everyday pre-prepared solutions aren’t going to work. When we work with clients we take the time to truly get to the root of their issues and challenges and partner with them to develop solutions tailored to their specific needs. In that way, we ensure not only that the concepts and solutions will work for them but also that they will be taken on board enthusiastically and fully adopted by their teams. Without effective implementation, the greatest ideas in the world won’t bring any improvements, so we ensure we get full buy-in to deliver the results you not only want but also deserve!
