Sales people waste a lot of time doing random tasks. Sales reps attempt to manage their time but become overwhelmed by long lists and outside distractions. A lot of companies sign their reps up for time management courses only to have great habits disappear. In this episode, Amanda Holmes, CEO of Chet Holmes International, talks about the book "The Ultimate Sales Machine" and dives deep into time management techniques to boost sales productivity immediately.

Here is the six step process Amanda recommends. As Chet says, "Don’t think about if you’ve heard them before, think about if you are applying the discipline to implement them."

Step One - Touch It Once

How many times have you looked at an email and left it right at the top of your inbox only to come back a few minutes later to do something with it? Don't redo tasks. Touch it once and move on to your next activity.

Step Two: Make Lists

Just by making a list your can dramatically improve your productivity. The key is to find a way to only have six items on your list.

Step Three: Allocate

Take your list of six items and plan how long each item will take. Don't fool yourself. If your activities add up to more than the time you have to work that day then you need to rethink your list.

Step Four: Prioritize

Put your most important items first. Too often we're tempted to check off the small or non-important tasks which leaves no time to accomplish the most important tasks.

Step Four: Prioritize

Put your most important items first. Too often we're tempted to check off the small or non-important tasks leaving the most important items to never be accomplished.

Step Five: Plan Your Day

With a prioritized and manageable list, begin to plan your day by putting activities into time slots. Be sure to remember to plan for items like "gotta minute meetings" and "checking emails". Be proactive about these types of activities instead of reactive.

Step Six: Throw it Away

We want to hold on to everything but we never end up reviewing it. Find a way to dejunk. Either be brave enough to throw things away or create a organizational system that allows you to eliminate "stuff" and not have to look at it again.

David Rudnitsky, SVP of Enterprise Sales at InsideSales.com, discusses the principles he's learned over his sales career to close large enterprise deals. Dave's methodology has been honed over the years and was featured in Marc Benioff's book, Behind the Cloud, to describe how Salesforce.com was able to achieve unparalleled success in the enterprise space.

1) Think Big; Have Attitude, Go High
-Thinking BIG and having a winning attitude inspires confidence
-Thinking BIG and having a winning attitude allows you to play high

2) No Deal is Won or Lost Alone
-Enterprise Sales is a team sport, not a spectator sport; it’s a contact sport

3) Connect the Dots: Never Dial for Dollars! Never Cold Call!
-Always call with a plan; social due diligence = never having to cold call
-Always call/connect as high as possible in an organization

4) Focus on "Why Not"
-Find 5 to 6 reasons/red flags why it might not work – always challenge yourself
-WHY’s are table stakes, WHY NOT’s win deals

5) Always Take the Deal Off the Table
-If a deal is ready, close it; increase deal velocity
-Time is the enemy of all deals, work with a sense of urgency

6) Get Your Face in the Place - Walk Their Halls Frequently
-Know your customers better than they know themselves
-Walking the halls, physically or virtually, builds trust and confidence; get badged

7) Fun Fact Build Instant Credibility
-Be a student of our customers’ fun facts

8) Be a Master of Your Business; Be Consultative; Be Prescriptive
-Be a trusted advisor; ensure professional services/consultants are involved

Rank #8: Lessons Learned from Scaling a 100 Person Sales Development Team at Apttus w/ Kent Venook

Podcast cover
Read more

The Sales Acceleration Show

Follow @GabeLarsen and @SteveEror on Twitter
and LinkedIn: Steve Eror - Gabe Larsen

Apttus provides quote to cash solutions on the Apttus intelligence cloud. Since it's inception in 2006 Apttus has experienced rapid growth and was valued in 2016 at over one-billion dollars. Bootstrapping in the early days the company started with one and grew to 100 sales development reps in 18 months. Kent Venook, Director of Global Sales Development discusses his six lessons learned from accomplishing this amazing task.

1) Standardization of process
In the early days, reps were each doing their own thing. It was more of a cowboy town than a well-oiled machine. Visualizing the process on a white-board and looking for areas of optimization, the team was able to move to a scalable process that each rep followed.

2) Key KPIs
After a lot of debate, the team standardized on sales accepted opportunities as the primary metric to have sales development reps focus on. Although, Apttus runs an account-based model where sales development reps are closely tied to account executives, Kent decided not to listen to outside sources and pay his reps on ACV or revenue. Kent believes reps should be paid for things they can control and what they can be coached to improve.

3) Continued Training
Kent set up a two-month onboarding program called the Sales Academy. Apttus is a robust product and Kent found he could train his people for a few days and let them try and figure it out for the next six months or train them for two months and them fully ramped by month three.

4) Management Team
When Kent began he hired 60 reps so quickly that everybody reported to him. Looking for key characteristics and top performers, Kent quickly put in a management team that increased engagement and overall productivity for the team.

5) Don't be Afraid to Fail
Testing is the name of the game. Try different things to increase productivity results and have fun with it.

6) Investment
Great people and great teams don't get where they are alone. Realize that to get to an optimized state you will need a powerful sales stack.

Gone are the days of the simple sale. CRMs, like Salesforce, allow you to document and log key sales information in a world full of complex deal cycles. But you often lack the essential tools to see the big picture, build effective account plans, and operate strategically.

Influence maps and account maps are visual references that can help you find the fastest path to sale and close your deals faster.

  • The importance of strategy – Sales is the customer of the sales development team. What does sales need, more volume or better leads? An agreement always needs to be there if you’re building a new team or taking on an existing one.
  • The need for alignment - When sales realigns compensation and territories at the beginning of every year it’s best to mirror their set up and change SDR structure/comp if needed.
  • The purpose of service level agreements – SLAs make easy for sales to partner with the SDR team, and likewise make it easy for SDRs to get their job done. Set up your backend technology stack to support your deliverable and put some SLAs behind different expectations.        
  • Why you have to have accountability – Both the SDR team and sales teams are accountable for different activities throughout the process.

Product Selling vs Solution Selling w/Scott Crosley

Podcast cover
Read more
We need to change the way we sell. We can't sell our products anymore. There are two many products but there are not enough solutions. Buyers have problems and they need solutions but not in the way you think you need them. We need to change the message in sales to get buyers to change vendors/product. Salespeople tend to focus on the gain by asserting to the customer that they will save $x money (but this isn’t the best way to create change or motive a buyer to take a risk, i.e. buy your product). Salespeople should shift focus to the loss, which motivates people to be more risk-seeking/risk-taking to improve their situation. So rather than claiming (A) “we can save you 10% (framed as a gain), you should claim (B) “you are spending 10% more than you should be (framed as a loss).

In this episode, we talk about prospect theory and how it can help you move from product selling to solution selling.
