801: Death To Fluff, with Belal Batrawy

Read more

Belal Batrawy, founder of Death2Fluff, and I are going to talk about why he believes it’s time to elevate the sales profession. What I really enjoyed about this episode is having the opportunity to talk with a bright young voice in sales, a person still at the beginning of his sales career (at least compared with me!) who is taking the time to think deeply about sales. There is way too much fluff in all the sales advice put out and I respect the way Belal is willing to put his beliefs out there. Today we dive into a wide range of topics including the major influences on how sellers learn how to sell and what sales management needs to learn in order to better help sellers improve their performance.

Guest: Belal Batrawy


Topic: No Fluff Sales Advice - Provocative Messaging. 

Quick Intro: Why Belal - Belal is an up and comer in the game, with already 7 startups under his belts. Some good and some bad, which is also why he is able to give such great advice. He’s not a 1 trick 1 industry pony, he has sold and led across multiple industries, different products, leaders, and teams.

9: Death to fluff on your cold calls and pricing tactics (Belal Batrawy #DeathtoFluff)

Read more

Belal drops some mindblowing tactics on “decoy pricing” and asking questions that get prospects sitting up in a cold call. Fire episode.

Four Actionable Takeaways:

  • Decoy Pricing: $6 (undesirable), $7.50 (acceptable), $8 (just what they need)
  • First 15 seconds explain why you called, say it’s a cold call, then ask a peer question
  • In the agenda, tell the customer you’re gonna give price before they get off the call
  • Use what they want as the rows in your pricing instead of what you want (seats)

Belal Batrawy’s Path to President’s Club:

  • Community Leader of #Death2Fluff
  • 7x Startup Seller and Sales Advisor

Focus Areas: Prospecting, Negotiation

1: Mental Health and You: A Sales Adventure W/ Belal Batrawy

Read more

We've come a long way in the last 20 years. There was a time when the admission of depression would be a one-way ticket out of your career. Things still aren't all sunshine and hugs. 

Some problems:

1. Serious mental illnesses that are treatable like Schizophrenia, Bipolar, BPD and many others are still seen as leperous to hiring managers and leaders in general

2. Sales reps deal with rejection, stress, and conflict at a more constant and high level than most professions yet there is no training or preparation for how to cope

3. Telling your peers or manager about depression and anxiety can still be risky which leads to sales reps repressing their emotions. This almost always end in breakdown and burn out.

Today, Belal Batrawy and I dig into these topics and see what gold we can find.
