    069 - Defecting from Direct - Getting Partner Pilled with Chelsea Graham

    What is up PartnerUp!? 
    A few weeks ago we covered the ~75,000 Account Executive jobs listings on LinkedIn being surpassed by a surprising new leader…the Partnerships Manager job listing .
    There were ~81,000 Partnerships Manager jobs. Perhaps a turning point in partnership's popularity. 
    If that’s the case, then it’s on us leading this movement to answer the question – where the heck are these partner people going to come from?!
    Most likely, sales.
    So instead of pontificating in our ivory towers on what will motivate sellers to come to partner land, we figured we’d bring on one of the best who HAS made the transition absent any of our influence! 
    Chelsea Graham is a former Account Executive for Tableau turned Partnerships Manager for Highspot. 
    She spoke at Supernode 2022 and after her story of taking the partner pill, we dive deep into the opportunity to create partner experiences for sellers that flip creative switches and sew the seeds of tens of thousands of partner professionals for the future.

    068 - How They Feel is How You Scale - Mario Tarabbia

    Partner people what is up?! Today we have on an old friend of Jared’s Mario Tarrabia, CEO of partnerpage.io/ for some lessons at the intersect of emotion and logic.

    And a surprising first principle that’s probably your company’s most scalable component…

    Emotions.

    How you make people feel.

    It turns out, give, give, give and make deposits before making withdrawals is the fastest way to scale a partnership culture that wins.

    067 - Be a Gardener, not a Builder - Platforms, Ecosystems, and Complexity, with Alex Komoroske

    067 - Be a Gardener, not a Builder - Platforms, Ecosystems, and Complexity, with Alex Komoroske

    What is up PartnerUp?!

    If you try to build a product, platform, community, or ecosystem like an engineer or architect, you will fail. Every time.

    If you view it as a garden, you just might succeed.

    Alex Komoroske is one of the most fascinating thinkers in business, and his wildly popular illustrated and emoji-based decks on how to build a platform ecosystem and how large companies are like slime molds have created breakthroughs for startups large and small.

    We talk about whether all this abstract stuff is just a load of bull, why it has to come from the bottom up, and how to put it to use. We also dive into the problem of measurement, and why sometimes the most important stuff is what can’t be measured - and how to convince your boss of this!

    066 - What Complex B2B Marketing Can Learn from Simple B2C Partnerships - Dave Yovanno

    066 - What Complex B2B Marketing Can Learn from Simple B2C Partnerships - Dave Yovanno

    What is up PartnerUp?! 
    We’re back with a second time guest, the King of listening to the customer, author of The Partnerships Economy, and CEO of impact.com Dave Yovanno
    And this time, we’re making it easy for you. 
    Isaac mentioned something on the show that really brought this home for all of us: the very nature of a B2B buy requires solutions working together. And yet consumer? You can mostly buy without consideration of other solutions.
    Ok, duh, so what?
    Well, why the heck then is consumer partner marketing lightyears past B2B marketing?! 
    How is it that consumer companies are driving the innovation in going to market together, when they don’t have to? 
    Turns out, we’ve been overcomplicating it all and Dave shares his favorite stories we can all use to have more simple, meaningful conversations with our marketers. 
    Give ‘em that easy button and tune in.

    Wait... did the author of THE CHALLENGER SALE... seriously agree to come on PartnerUp?!

     Like, millions of copies sold, "The Challenger Sale?!?

    Like, the rulebook for every seller in Silicon Valley "The Challenger Sale?!"

    Oh yes he did, and it's too good to pass up. Let's roll.

    What is up PartnerUp!?

    Perhaps one of the most influential voices in all of sales, Brent Adamson, joins us on the pod.

    Has the sultan of sales been partner pilled?!

    On today’s episode, we welcomed on Brent Adamson from The Challenger Sale, CEB, Gartner, and Ecosystems.us.

    Brent explains the biggest things standing in between companies and their customers, what it actually takes to establish effective customer relationships, and the SaaS macro-trends he’s seen bringing about the era of ecosystems.

    Together, Brent, Jared, and Isaac bounce ideas back-and-forth to come to a conclusion about one huge opportunity the SaaS space needs to figure out how to leverage.
