It was a Hot Podcast Summer!*
In between taking some well-deserved PTO and caring for our Dogs of Outreach, we released some informative, inspiring podcast episodes.
Our guests this August shared their wisdom on hiring, forecasting, passionate selling and more.
You deserve a break too, so grab a chair (and a dog, if you have one) and catch up on the latest Sales Engagement Podcast episodes.
Read on for the most listened-to episodes in August.
Carman Pirie, Cofounder of Kula Partners
Carman Pirie has been in the biz for over 15 years, so he knows better than most people how connected sales and marketing need to be for the success of your customers and your business.
He advocates an always be helping mentality, which is more effective in the long run at helping companies humanize their marketing and sales.
Here are our top takeaways:
- Ask yourself: do you have an unlimited prospect funnel? If not, you may need to reshape your thinking into a client centered mindset.
- BANT (Budget, Authority, Needs, Timeline) is outdated and bunk.
- Check yourself: are you too influenced as a marketer by the way SAAS companies market?
