Rank #1: Hitting Your Number and Doing it the Right Way: This and More Advice from Workfront CEO Alex Shootman

Podcast cover
Read more

Alex Shootman, CEO of Workfront joins us this time as we talk about principals of doing things "The Right Way".  Check out his book, Done Right: How Tomorrow's Top Leaders Get Stuff Done.

It pulls from over thirty original interviews with experienced leaders across a variety of industries to show how tomorrow's leaders can effectively navigate the modern workforce.

"... this notion of getting it done and doing it right-- and mentally, if you think about a two by two grid, with a vertical axis being getting it done in a horizontal axis, being doing it right, it's a notion of ... the vertical axis is low to high. Are you getting it done or are you not getting it done? Doing it right is are you living up to the values of an organization or are you not living up to the values of an organization? It's this notion of if you're not getting it done but not doing it right, it's probably not great place for you. If you're doing it right, but you're not getting it done, you have the values of the organization, but you might need some coaching on how to objectively accomplish the role that you've been given."

"If you're getting it done and you're doing it right, you're the person that everybody ought to see their name in lights. The tough one is if you're getting it done, but you're not doing it right, you probably ought to be fired faster than anybody in the organization, because nothing destroys the pursuit of the culture that you want in a company faster than being willing to tolerate people who can accomplish their goals but don't live up to the values of the organization."

"What I found over time is I believe people are good and people want to do the right thing. A lot of times they just haven't been given the space to put a premium on values."

Rank #2: Sell Like A Girl - Jill Konrath Talks about Making More Sales in Less Time

Podcast cover
Read more

Jill Konrath joins Matt Heinz to talk about her latest book, More Sales, Less Time.   She also discusses her famous line: Sell Like A Girl. 

Jill Konrath’s career is defined by her relentless search for fresh strategies that actually work in today’s sales world.

----more----

Listen in to hear how someone with a Bachelors in Education ended up getting into sales, let alone becoming a keynote speaker in one of the world's preeminent sales offices.

Jill shares some great insights including the inspiration behind her books. 

"It starts with a problem. It always starts with a problem and in every case and every book I've written it started with a problem that I faced. And when I face it initially, I get really discouraged and I bat my head against the wall and say, oh I'm so stupid. I can't figure it out and then I finally realize that it's not just my problem, but other people are struggling with that issue, too. And then I go to work and it becomes like a puzzle to me and how to solve it. So, I actually dig in and wrestle with the material myself til I can figure out what works today. And then, again I guess because I do come from teaching roots it's real important for me to make it easy for people to understand.

PEOPLE ARE BUSY! 

"When people are this busy, you have to fundamentally shift how you do things in order to peak your curiosity, make them stop and listen and actually then respond to you and say, hey I'm interested in learning more."

STRIVE FOR MAXIMUM IMPACT:

"One thing I always try to stress with people is that they really need to stop and think about what they're doing and they need to strive for maximum impact in every single customer interaction and that customer interaction may be a 20 second email message. Maybe a 60 word ... or 20 second phone message, a 60 word email message, you know, but what can you do to have the maximum impact and I think way too many people in sales just say, make more, do more, send more, have more meetings. But, to me the smartest thing to do is ensure that every single interaction provides some value and moves you toward things"

Keep listening to hear Jill's perspective about women in sales and a lot more!

Rank #4: Here’s Your Event Marketing Playbook for 2019

Podcast cover

In this episode, "Here’s Your Event Marketing Playbook for 2019" we talk to Kristen Alexander, CMO at Certain.

Recently we worked together on an Event Marketing Playbook. We'll talk about that.  We're going to get tactical, we will talk strategy.

It's real, practical advice to drive real results in organizations that are doing events. I think a lot of people when they do events just do the same old stuff. You get a sponsorship, you get your booth, you go through the motions, and then you're wondering where the revenue is and why you spent all that money.

Kristen will talk about some of the pitfalls she sees from event marketers that aren't getting the kind of ROI they need from events today.

We'll also double down a little bit on the discussion of data strategy for events because I don't think a lot of event marketers and event managers are thinking about what their data strategy is. We'll also talk about some examples of why managing data, using the right data is so important to getting results out of an event.

And.... of course we talk about sales enablement... and how that morphed into customer service enablement because as she says "...essentially, there's this disconnect between sales and customer success and customer experience in that there's this function that's so hell bent on acquiring new customers, and then there's sort of this handoff between that function and the function that's designed to keep those customers and grow those customers."  Read the full trancription on the Heinz Marketing blog starting Mon. 9/17/18 6am PST.  Also check out her blog post, "Sales Enablement: Is it Sales or Marketing?".

Rank #9: Training & Professional Development for your Sales Managers: New Best Practices from Norman Behar

Podcast cover
Read more

This week Norman Behar, Founder & Managing Director at Sales Readiness Group joins us as we focus on content and best practices.

Sales Readiness Group has been around for a long time. They've been recognized as one of the top twenty sales training companies in the country by Selling Power magazine and featured as the Sales Training Company to Watch List by trainingindustry.com. Lots of accolades for the team.  They just released a new report (The Salesperson's Perspective on the Impact of Sales Training) that I'm actually pretty excited about. It isn't just about training and best practices but really showcases salespeople's perspective on the impact sales training can have.

One of the questions that often comes up from sales leaders is, "Okay, so we've done sales training in the past, but sometimes it's been effective." Sometimes it has a lasting effect, but in many cases, it doesn't necessarily have a lasting effect, and so we wanted to better understand what's really important to salespeople and what's the business impact associated with sales training. We know that companies are investing more than ever in sales training. There was a stat by Training Industry showing sales training now is estimated at a 2.5 billion dollar market globally, and it's grown by one billion over the last seven years. So, you've got these two--I'm going to call almost mixed signals coming out. Sales leaders who are saying, "Is there really a strong correlation between great sales training and business results?" And at the same time, you have this huge increase in spending, so obviously we think companies are pretty smart. They wouldn't be spending more if it wasn't impacting their business, but we wanted to really get the sales rep's perspective and understand what is it that makes for a great training program and how does it actually impact business. And we had some pretty interesting results.  Listen in now and find the full transcript on the Heinz Marketing blog starting Monday, 8/20 at 6am PST.

Podcast cover

We pack a lot into this episode as I talk to Nick Jordan, CMO at Logic Inbound.   

Among other things, I ask him what are some of the challenges you've found in trying to build a marketing community? Sometimes we try to produce marketing events, and well-meaning people don't always come out in the way that some other groups, like IT and others, might do. So why do you think that is, and what are some keys to actions when trying to build that active marketing community?

What are some of the ways you, or some of the formats of community you find the most successful? Is it lunch and learns, is it networking happy hours? Are there certain topics and formats that tend to work better in terms of getting marketers together?

Nick is all about building community amongst marketers.  Check out his answers as well as his number one growth hack for growing communities-- it's something everybody can go ahead and start implementing, as soon as they're done listening to this podcast!

More from Nick:  "I'm passionate about developing and growing businesses. A million side projects, a few startups, and one ride on a rocket ship as an early employee at BitTitan.

So glad to have Karen Steele, CMO at LeanData on this time talking about what "Revenue Operations" really means.  

LeanData has done a great job of evangelizing an integrated, cohesive Revenue Operations strategy. I ask Karen what that means and what it looks like.

I also ask her about the balance of activities for marketing teams when you've got those so focused on demand generations and getting more leads and getting more MQLs, versus focusing on some of the Sales Enablement and Revenue Operations tasks and priorities. It's not just about the sales funnel-- revenue implies impacting the entire customer life cycle. I asked her to share how the concept of Revenue Operations can now span beyond acquisition marketing as well as sales and how it can impact customer success and account management teams as well.   Listen in for this and a lot more!  You can also listen in and read the transcript on the Heinz Marketing Blog starting Monday, 5/13/19 at 6am PST as well.. and catch the recording everywhere podcasts play!

Objections, The Art and Science of Getting Past No and a lot more!  Check out the full transcript starting Mon. 11/12/18, 6am PST on the Heinz Marketing Blog.

"The one thing that every one in sales faces is objections ...You get objections when you prospect. You get objections when you ask for next steps. You get objections when you ask people to buy and no one's immune. So it doesn't make a difference what you sell, it doesn't make a difference if you're short cycle/long cycle, if you're enterprise, if you're less complex. It doesn't make a difference if you're an SDR or you're an AE or you have a full desk. It doesn't matter. Every single person that sells is going to face objections. So it's important that you understand how to deal with them and get past them so you can be successful in your role."

Rank #17: Why Your Salespeople Don't Make Quota - An Easy Fix - James Muir Podcast

Podcast cover
Read more

James Muir, the author of The Perfect Close. He's an accidental sales person. Started out in operations assisting sales team. He was drafted without knowing how to advance a meeting to the next stage. He created this method as an outcome of his own experience.

Statistically, what happens is that no question is asked to advance the sales. 50-90% of sales meetings end without a salesperson asking for any commitment, depending on industry. This number is way higher than those who ask "incorrectly" - at least they ASK.

What is it in the psychology of sales or people that prevents them from asking for the sale? If sales people are not comfortable with the method they've been taught - manipulative - they won't do it at all.

Teach them away that is in aligment with their personal values, there is no difficulty asking

Visit puremuir.com - free report - 7 Deadly Sins of Closing

In this episode, James Muir covered:

1. Fear of asking to early or being pushy.

2. Fear of the "No".

Both of these involved in feeling maninupulative or moving the process too fast. You need to have an idea of your ideal outcome of the meeting, but you should also have a couple of positive alternatives.
