How to Start 2020 the WRONG Way

Tweets-instream-images-800x450-Matt_Heinz_2020_Wrong_way.jpg

This week's episode is entitled "How to Start 2020 the WRONG Way" and I banter with our MC and friend, Paul Roberts.  Football does come up (as usual), but we also talk about 2020.  

Don't go into the holiday period and into January 2nd without a plan, without knowing what your objectives are, without knowing what you are going to be focused on. 

What are you trying to achieve?

What 12 months from today, does success look like?

And what are the key things that are going to get you there?

Know what that plan is, at least going into the storm. Knowing the storm is probably going to try to tear it to pieces, but having that plan up front, if you don't have some semblance of that, it's going to be very hard to start the year off on the right track.  

Listen in below for this and more.  The full transcription will be on our blog starting Monday, 12/30/19.  

Sales Pipeline Radio is hosted by Matt Heinz of Heinz Marketing which is a program on the Funnel Radio Channel.

From Process to Profits: How Systems Will Increase Your Sales

Tweets-instream-images-800x450-Fagan.jpg

In "From Process to Profits: How Systems Will Increase Your Sales", I'm talking about sales strategy with Bethany Fagan, CMO at PandaDoc. Full disclosure, I am a PandaDoc customer and a very happy one.  I wanted to have her on to talk about templates as part of the sales process. Sometimes things like templates can be perceived as perhaps less exciting parts of the process. It's not as exciting as the creative. It's not as exciting as let's go make more dials or figuring out how to get reps to engage with our prospects, to engage with our reps. But process and systems are the backbone of successful, predictable, scalable sales organizations.

We talk about what PandaDoc has seen on this and how important process and templates are. This and a lot more!

This man can pitch anything! Now, see how he’s flipped the script…

Tweets-instream-images-800x450-klaff.jpg

This week's episode is entitled "This Man Can Pitch Anything! Now, See How He's Flipped the Script..." a great conversation with Oren Klaff, who is the Managing Director at Intersection Capital and Bestselling Author of Pitch Anything and FLIP THE SCRIPT.

Some people ask "How do you sell a commodity and really differentiate and even charge a higher price?" Well, it's not necessarily in that case about the commodity, it's about what people are going to do with it. I ask Oren to share his best practices for taking something that might feel like it doesn't have a lot of competitive differentiation and how to still get that sold at a premium.  

He talks (among other things) about the idea of getting people to believe in what you're trying to say, getting them to think that that is their idea and getting them to believe that there is something that's worth changing, something worth doing is a very, very powerful concept. Of course we talk about his most recent book and also what he is seeing in the marketplace, with his clients and business that that made this the next topic to write about.
