Highlights:

Excellence in Execution

Executional excellence, i.e. how top performers sell most effectively, is ingrained into your sales team’s culture over time. However, it will be ingrained faster if a good strategy is set up. For Maropost, this involves reviewing calls and building game plans to police their approach to closing a target account.

Sales as Consultants

Maropost’s top-performing sales reps act like consultants. They listen to the pains of their customers and design solutions that are most relevant for them. This has now become part of their hiring criteria: they are no longer hiring for people who can conduct demos or run processes but for people who can teach their customers something new or open up their mind about their business.

The Value in a Partnerships Channel

To Jarred, the key to a successful partnership is to not take a selfish approach to them. If you only think about what’s in it for you or how it will generate more pipeline and sales, then it will not go well. Instead, you need to look at the key pain points that can be solved for the partner and what sort of partnership is going to be best for your company.
