    FTF Fridays 50: Customer Over Product

    You certainly can be successful as an SDR with extensive product knowledge but it's not table stakes. Instead, the sellers that focus on understanding the buyer, the problems they're facing, and what makes them tick outperform solution-focused sellers any day of the week. This is the top observation from video prospecting guru + Vidyard VP Marketing, Tyler Lessard among others in this week's episode.

    FTF Fridays 49: Cold Calling is Not Dead

    No matter how many times someone calls a tactic or strategy dead, it's nearly always because of fear. Fear of not knowing how to do it well, fear of rejection, or just plain fear of picking up the phone. Kevin Hopp joined Jeff this week to share how to tackle your fears, check your ego at the door and hit the phones to fill your funnel.

    FTF Fridays 48: Research Research Research

    When people think of pre-call research, they automatically think of looking online or in a database tool to gather insights on their buyers before they reach out. Normally, this is 100% correct but this week's guest, Asthon Lobo, has a unique way of preparing for that crucial first call with your buyer and was nice enough to share with Jeff and all of you exactly how he does it. Enjoy and happy hunting!

FTF essentially gives you a playbook of best practices. If I need a chapter on getting ghosted it’s there, how to open a call it’s there, or how to think like your prospects.

This is a well thought out podcast that offers insights I can actually use, as a sales person, to improve at my job.

Highly recommend!
