with Trish Bertuzzi
This week Trish Bertuzzi joins me on BizLocker Radio to discuss “sales development,” which combines data analysis tools, email nurturing and phone prospecting teams, what Bertuzzi calls the marriage of “technology, process and people.” Cold calling is dead, Trish says. Tune in to find out why!
“Sales development” is all about the front end of the sales process. “People have been using the term ‘sales development’ since the 1980s,” Trish says. “But only in the past four years or so has it become reality.” The methods and technology in this arena are changing rapidly. We’ll find out what’s working — and what’s not!
This week, Miles joins me in the Xs & Os segment to talk about ways to increase your effectiveness in the field. Every week, it’s another great tool — and this week we will discuss ToDoist.com. Make sure you follow Miles, The Web Tools Guy, at www.fillthefunnel.com!
