Sales is changing

I think sales is changing. Cold-calling people all day long is really hard and cold emails aren't working unless you get really creative. I have to think about how do I want people to approach me. If somebody says, 'Hey, I know this person, this is what is going on, I can introduce you to them because your problems are the same as theirs.' Well, of course, that conversation is going to be more valuable.

You've gotta be a detective

Selling has changed. Buying preferences have changed.

And yet, our execs still expect the same results.

To succeed, some resort to working harder.

I saw somebody post today - if you want to be successful, you have to spend four to six hours a day cold-calling. Well, I'm sorry, but I have a pipeline. I have to close things and I have to go through legal and procurement. I cannot spend four to six hours a day cold-calling.

While others are finding ways to work smarter.

They're using partner overlap data to learn about their prospects.

I had an account that I had been working for over a year...Meeting with partners who had already sold to them was awesome, because partners could say, 'this is how long procurement took; this is who I got in front of.' Talking to those partners, 65% of my closed-won last year was technically self sourced.

Use this template to get intel

Every seller should be leveraging Nearbound Sales plays.

Here's one framework you can use today. Jared Fuller calls it the Three I's – Intel, Influence, Intro.

Use this email template to get intel on Nearbound accounts:

“Hey [Partner name X], I’m talking to [contact Y] next week over at [account Z]. I noticed you closed them last quarter with buy-in from the [A department].

So that I’m presenting the most relevant case about our joint value proposition of [B], would you be willing to share any intel about the business initiative you aligned to?

A few of your top bullets would be extremely helpful, or if you’re open to hopping on a call for 15 mins maybe I could offer up some intel from my side on [C account(s)] you’re selling to which I owned the opportunity for and we can trade notes.”
