🎙️ Guest Podcast: Sales Fundamentals. Jacob Kearnes (Investor Intelligence)

I thought a good way to start the year would be with a guest episode from an interview I did very late last year.The show was called “The Investor Intelligence Podcast” and hosted by a young man called Jacob Keanes, a nice guy a great podcast.The reason I thought I’d start here is this chat covers a lot of the fundamentals of being good at selling. And I think that's an excellent place to start the year as we come back from our breaks, and I also think that sales fundamentals are going to be critical to get right for sales success in 2024.Catch all versions of me here.https://linktr.ee/markmcinnes LinkedIn profileVIP sales mailerTactical Pipeline GrowthBOSS Podcast1 on 1 Consulting

👍 🎙️ UPDATED: How to check your network strength on LinkedIn

When I initially posted this a couple of weeks ago it had an error that meant it would not play any audio.I have now fixed that error. Apologies for the delay in getting this to you.Posting on LinkedIn with only a low level of interaction?Maybe your LinkedIn network is not very strong.How could you tell?Grab the visual on YouTube: Check your LinkedIn's network strength.I'll argue that quality is far more important than quantity for 95% of people on LinkedIn. Having a strong network is much, much better than a big network.But how do you test the strength?Give this test a try, it'll take you only 3mins to conduct, and it just might change your approach to LinkedInCatch all versions of me here.Catch all versions of me here.https://linktr.ee/markmcinnes LinkedIn profileVIP sales mailerTactical Pipeline GrowthBOSS Podcast1 on 1 Consulting

🎙️ 🏠 SDR/BDRs should sell like Real Estate Agents.

We will need to change several things about our approach to outbound in 2024 and beyond.One of the things I think we will see is a shift away from some SDR roles, and those morph into MDR-type roles.That is more marketing-focused roles (Market Development Rep) and less about getting the meeting at all costs, which is the current SDR (Sales Development Rep) type role.My local Real Estate companies are experts at this MDR approach. Two companies in particular in my local area make an effort to call me every couple of months, and we have a 2 - 5 minute conversation.Join our live stream on Nov 14 to learn what outbound will look like in 2024.Catch all versions of me here.https://linktr.ee/markmcinnes LinkedIn profileVIP sales mailerTactical Pipeline GrowthBOSS Podcast1 on 1 Consulting
