If Player/Coach was a Good Idea, Then the NFL Would be Doing It

I regularly speak with founders that are looking to get out of the sales leadership role but can’t justify hiring someone who’s sole responsibility is to manage a group of SDRs (Sales Development Reps) or AEs (Account Executive). Instead, they’ve decided to add a quota carrying rep who will also play the role of sales leader. I cringe each time I hear this. Here’s why...

Sales Success Tip

Maximize Every Call!

With phone connection rates only @ 7-10% you need to make sure you maximize every verbal conversation you have with prospects.

Here are my best practices for making the most of every call:

  • Don’t get off the phone until you’ve qualified them in or out, no matter if they are interested in moving forward now or not. So what does that mean? Make sure you collect important  information that will help you determine if continuing to follow up at a later date makes sense. Here are some suggestions:

    • Number of employees
    • Number of locations
    • Software they are currently using
    • Competitors they are currently using and contract renewal dates
    • Pain Points your product could solve

  • If they aren’t interested in your product or service at this time ask them the following, “Would it be okay if I keep in touch with you as you get closer to budget decision time/your contract renewal to see if that would be a better time to learn more about us?”
