Be relevant in your outreach, by Eddie Cmehil

By Rachael Love on Dec 1, 2020 3:26:43 PM

Power User Spotlight: Eddie Cmehil, Malomo


Eddie's Hack: Be relevant in your outreach

Something we try to do at Malomo is not just get personalized, but remain relevant. eCommerce is an ever-changing industry and the marketers we're talking to are constantly being thrown new channels, ways to reach customers, etc. To stick out, we've seen that we need to do proper research into what matters to the individual we are reaching out to and be as specific as possible as to how we might be able to help them. Figuring out what other technologies they use that we could work with is one way we stay very relevant.

Embrace the "No", by Patrick Jacobs

Power User Spotlight: Patrick Jacobs, Immerss


Patrick's Hack: Embrace the "No"

Over time I’ve found that embracing the “No” is one of the best things you can do as a sales person. “Maybe” in sales is the same as “No”, only with “Maybe” you end up wasting a bunch of time and effort chasing something that is never going materialize. “No” saves you time and energy, but also frees the prospect to speak more openly than they would have otherwise. Those insights gained can pay big dividends with the next prospect. So appreciate, embrace, and gain insights from “No”.

Block your calendar, by Patrick Daly

By Rachael Love on Oct 7, 2020 9:48:57 AM

Power User Spotlight: Patrick Daly, Sezzle


Patrick's Hack: Block your calendar

Block that calendar! It is important to stay organized and ensure that you are utilizing every minute of every day. I like to block off my cold call, prospecting, follow-up, etc. times to have a placeholder indicating when I should be moving on. This helps to stay organized and maximize results. Also, switch up those cold-calling/prospecting time blocks to different parts of the day to increase the chances of getting ahold of your prospects.

Use etailinsights' 'First Detected' information to time to your prospecting efforts, by Will Tafel

By Rachael Love on Sep 10, 2020 3:12:34 PM

Power User Spotlight: Will Tafel, Reflektion


Will's Hack: Use etailinsights' 'First Detected' information to time to your prospecting efforts

etailinsights offers a feature called Technology Spy that I use regularly. Part of that feature includes the ability to see when an etailer first started using a technology. Knowing etailinsights' 'first detected' date of a competitor technology helps me understand if a prospect is ripe for replacement and when it makes sense to target them. Additionally, etailinsights' Advanced Search feature allows you to search a date range of when a competitor technology was first added. With that search feature, I can quickly build a target list around a technology's first detected date. Having the date of when an etailer adopted a technology helps me time my prospecting efforts efficiently and effectively!

The "No Demo" approach, by Chantele Gibson

By Rachael Love on Aug 19, 2020 2:59:53 PM

Power User Spotlight: Chantele Gibson, Searchspring


Chantele's Hack: The "No Demo" approach

In my experience, most of the sales pitches I've attended are typically in the form of a slide deck about the company, history of successes, or a full-blown product demo. I've learned that sales calls are not always designed for (or around) the prospect. That's why I am a big believer in a "No Demo" sales call. This doesn't mean that on sales calls, we should avoid a product overview, but instead strive to be more conversational. Take the majority of the time to understand the current challenges or pain points of each and every prospect. Use that information to position how your solution can help solve these problems.
