Let me first start by saying that I am not an SDR expert and don’t claim to be. However, after one year as an Enterprise SDR, doing cold outreach 40+ hours a week, and absorbing content all day and every day, I would hope that I have learned what does and does not work when it comes to prospecting. I’ve learned so much from Heather Morgan over at Salesfolk when it comes to the SDR cold email. Her “hall of shame” is particularly helpful and lets you know what not to send.

It’s all about the language…When a Sales Manager wants to find a way into the hearts and minds of their people, they may explore a variety of routes. “Maybe I could run a contest…” “Maybe I could give them a half day off….” “I think I would like it, if I were still in Sales, if my manager did_______” The reason that precious few of these take hold in the head and heart of most sales people is that they are focused on some sort of tired call-and-response approach to drawing the best out of sales people. “If I do this action, I hope to get this result.” Sorry, NO.

Questions around “how can I benchmark myself?” make leading an Account Executive group all the more challenging. We just published our 2017 SaaS AE Metrics & Compensation Report where we analyze the biggest shifts in recent years and provide core metrics to measure Account Executive teams.

Whether you are in final stages with the company you’re interviewing with for a new job, or are asking for a pay raise at your current company, negotiating salary is never easy.We all want to be passionate about our jobs and love what we do. And although money is not everything, it is something, so how do we ask for more of it? Even though this conversation may seem uncomfortable, it can be both tactful and tasteful. It’s okay to be disappointed with a compensation package and not accept the first salary offer.

What is an objection? In the sales world, it is a response from the buyer that they are not convinced your product or service is right for them…yet. The objection could happen at any stage in the sales process: on a cold call, on the discovery call, or demo. To be honest, true selling does not even begin until you receive your first objection. Sometimes you’ll find that you cannot overcome a buyer’s concern.
