When our VP of Sales was looking through our internal data recently, he stumbled on something remarkable. Deals in which an account executive was on a texting basis with a prospect were 5 times more likely to close. This makes sense.

You gotta be both. Being pushy is not about asking for the order. Buyers expect that from you. Though it has no […]
“Any fool can turn a blind eye but who knows what the ostrich sees in the sand.” Samuel Beckett. In school I was taught that ostriches buried their heads in the sand to avoid danger. It’s a great visual. But, it’s untrue. When ostriches encounter danger they can’t escape, they don’t bury their heads in […]
It’s a common refrain from salespeople. And it’s one I hear from people who are on a crusade to change what they feel are the unfairly held negative stereotypes of salespeople. It’s a common topic that people applying to be a guest on my podcast (Sales Enablement with Andy Paul) want to talk about. Which […]
