Planning to raise a seed round or Series A this year? [The Friday Four: 1/20/17]

By Scott Sambucci | January 20, 2017

Can I still say “Happy New Year?” I mean, it’s still January and this is my first email to you in 2017…

1 – Raising a seed round or Series A this year?

Yes? Cool. Then you DEFINITELY need to come to this working session at the SaaStr CoSelling Space in San Francisco.

It’s all the “Whats” and “Whys” for your 2017 Sales Plan: Finding Prospecting, Building a Pipeline and Getting Paying Customers in 2017.

Plus I’m the one leading the group, so you know it’ll be good.  Seriously. Grab a spot. There are only 15 spots.

2 – #GoFarther

I’ve written a few posts this month about sales and more about the topic of getting sh&t done.  You might like them…

3 – “Early customers define your destiny.”

I got off my a$$ and went to a live event last week hosted at the SaaStr CoSellin Space – The Real Secrets to Happy Customers & to Making More Money.

Here’s my write-up on the event and what I learned.

The short of it? Be really, really customer-focused. Duh, right? But seriously, this has to be a #1 priority for you as a startup. I remember our early days at Blend Labs when our CEO and I were putting together PowerPoint slides and Excel spreadsheets for a mid-level manager that constantly complained that we weren’t doing our jobs. It was hazing, plain and simple. But dammit, we gritted our teeth and did it.

4 – Check out the SalesQualia Facebook page

I’ve posted LOTS of stuff there, and even checking in with a Facebook Live from time to time. I’d LOVE it if you’d *LIKE* the Facebook page.

One last thing… Did I mention that you DEFINITELY need to come to this working session at the SaaStr CoSelling Space in San Francisco?

Happy New Year!
