Are you having a hard time connecting with prospects over the phone? Are you failing to generate pipeline for your sales funnel? Are you ready to give up on sales?
If so, you need a coach that can help you:
- Develop a plan for a calling campaign.
- Open cold calls successfully.
- Build pain with prospects.
- Qualify prospects for your product.
- Role-play with you.
I can help you do each of these things and improve your book of business today. I do this every day for the sales development team at SmartRecruiters and my strategies have been published by LeadFuze.
Are you struggling to land a sales gig in tech or at a start up?
I can help you:
- Roleplay the most difficult interview questions.
- Prepare for every aspect of the interview process.
- Focus on what matters to sales managers.
- Engage in effective interview follow up.
Having trouble getting your foot in the door? The problem could be your resume.
I have experience in two competitive industries (finance and tech sales) where a great resume can make you stand out and a poor one can sink your chances.
Schedule a call and I will:
- Review and rate your resume
- Guide you through the editing process
- Make suggestions on how to change your resume for more interviews
- Tie your resume to your interview: never fail again when you're asked "Walk me through your resume."
I'd echo Mick's answer but also add that I like to split 'Resellers' into two different buckets for SaaS.
1. Pure Resellers
These folks purchase the SaaS product (to show commitment to selling it) and then spend time re-selling the product. They DO NOT do anything else besides sell and provide referrals. Generally they are commissioned similarly to your sales people, but can provide a discount so they can make their margin.
2. Value Added Resellers (VARs)
These people buy your product, sell it (and get a commission), but then also do implementation for the people they sell it to. The money maker for VARs is being able to charge for professional services (which can often be much more expensive than the SaaS product itself). You should discuss how much they charge for services (you don't want there to be a huge discrepancy in how your product is implemented), but this will definitely vary between VARs.
The exact terms and payment amounts can vary depending on your product but hopefully these two distinctions can help with the way you approach structuring terms.
