Abstract

Ever gotten a bad sales email? I mean really bad. The type of bad where the message cannot be ignored, deleted, unsubscribed from, or even shuffled into the spam folder – you can’t get rid of them, and you don’t want to hear from that sender again. We often talk about how to do things right in marketing and sales. However, to do things right, you need to have a very clear understanding of what you’re doing wrong. Join VanillaSoft CMO Darryl Praill for a frank discussion on email – where we go wrong, and what we can do to make things right again!

Join this session and learn:

  • The messaging your decision makers really respond to
  • How to accurately communicate the benifits of your solution to prospects
  • How to avoid sending outreach that is sloppy and ineffective
  • Ways to consistently spur meaningful conversations with your email communications
  • Tips and tricks from the best in the business and how to incorporate them into your own communications

Abstract

What if we’ve been wrong about what it takes to be successful in sales for the last 30 years? What if our believe that great sales people follow a consistent sales approach in route to success is really not true at all? In this session, Leff Bonney will share some interesting research that calls into question long-held assumptions about what it takes to be successful in sales and that Inconsistent sellers are actually much more effective than those that follow a defined sales approach in their daily selling efforts. The session will go on to illustrate the importance of enabling Inconsistent selling behaviors by drawing parallels between elite fighter pilots and today’s sales teams.
