- 💰 Paying top-performing salespeople well has a positive cascading effect on the hiring brand and the overall success of the company.
📈 It's not enough to just see trends in the market, you need to have people who have been there from day one to maintain the culture and motivation.
🤝 The key to success in sales is through referrals and warm introductions: "We just want to make it easy for people to get referrals and warm introductions from people that can help and are willing to help them."
💼 Referral selling is the last untapped channel in the next-gen sales process.
💡 Referrals turn cold outbound into warm introductions, making them more effective in sales.
💭 "We need to start thinking strategically about engaging with customers, not just mass-producing interactions."
💼 Companies can tap into their network of investors and advisors for referral sales, which can be more powerful and strategic than traditional outreach methods.
💪 The best sales organizations understand their weaknesses and weaponize them before their competitors expose them as a liability.
