Jason's Hack: If you get knocked down, you need to get right back up
The best advice I can give is try to not take anything personally. If you’re in sales, I’m sure you’ve been caught off guard and knocked down a few times. Your reaction should be to get right back up and go after it again. If you’re able to maintain that mentality in work and in life, you’ll always be able to achieve the goals you set for yourself.
It's hard to believe, but it's officially May and we're almost halfway through 2021. It's not too late to register for a networking event taking place later this month.

Power User Spotlight: Paige Thames, Visiture
Paige's Hack: Teamwork makes the dream work
Before I started working in sales, I definitely bought into the widespread belief that sales can be hyper-competitive and at times cut-throat. While it is important to maintain a competitive edge and stand out, I think it's equally as important to join a sales team that has a collaborative and encouraging culture. I've found that more people are willing to help you learn and grow than you might think. At the end of the day, being a part of a strong team makes the wins a whole lot better and the losses not hit as hard.
As we begin Q2, the schedule of virtual eCommerce events really starts to ramp up. Whether you're planning to virtually attend or simply want info on "what's going on" this month, here is our list of the top virtual eCommerce events happening in April
Power User Spotlight: Tim LaComb, Visible SCM
Tim's Hack: People are the secret sauce.
Within every organization, there are a lot of different people with different personalities. I like to work through an organization, building relationships and bonds with key contacts. I have found that people, not companies, make the decisions at the end of the day. Focus on the people, and find those within an organization that you connect well with. It really is a differentiator in my experience.
Power User Spotlight: Brandon Farrell, Flow
Brandon's Hack: Don't take yourself too seriously
Doing cold outbound calls and emails can get monotonous. I always find time throughout the day to make it more fun. Create a game within the work, craft a personalized cheeky intro email, leave a voicemail every now and again. Makes it all the more worth it when you get a great response.

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.
