Megan's Sales Hack: Make friends with everyone you meet
Make friends with everyone you meet and don't take yourself too seriously! You will leave a lasting impression being genuine & listening. Not every conversation you have with a prospect has to be a hard sales pitch. It is fun getting to know people, and what drives the passion behind their projects and brands. The discussions you have where you empathize with your target, hear their goals, and support their visions are the ones that convert!

Jackson's Sales Hack: Be transparent and fair
This is perhaps less of a hack and more of a philosophy, but the most important tenets for us to consider when approaching new sellers are transparency and fairness. We are only interested in win-win partnerships, so we'll look to structure transactions that provide maximum value in areas most important to sellers. We're always fully transparent about both our intentions and our thought process. Above all else, we want to be known for doing business the right way, and we've found this philosophy to be a tangible differentiator in attracting sellers.

Jen's Sales Hack: Leverage etailinsights' Technology Spy
First of all, I don't think any "hack" out there will ever outperform persistence. With that being said, the etailinsights Technology Spy hack comes into play when I send out personalized cold emails at scale. Leveraging this feature, I may receive an email notification from Technology Spy telling me an online retailer is new to Shopify Plus. When I click on their account in etailinsights, I find out they're using Yotpo for reviews and Klaviyo for email. The intel that Technology Spy provides, leads me to quickly craft a personalized prospecting email that talks about how LimeSpot integrates with both Yotpo and Klaviyo.

Christian's Sales Hack: Keep it short, concise, and to the point
A tip I always remember from my first day in sales -- 'Keep it short, concise and to the point.'
For context, when writing an email; Applying this hack is to limit every email to 3 lines or less. Be very clear on the purpose of your mail (information sharing, asking for advice, doing a concrete proposal) and limit yourself to 3 lines maximum. End your emails explaining in one sentence in your signature why you keep your mails so short.
This simple method will force yourself to think about the purpose of the mail, and to be short and concise. The people you communicate with will benefit, and will hopefully return the favors.
