Ep.13: 10 Things To Do During the Holidays Pt. 1


This SalesCast is brought to you by, well, SalesQualia. Check out the Startup Selling Program, a 90-day program focused on finding customers, growing revenue and building your sales process.

In this episode, Scott and Robert discuss what to do around the holiday season in preparation for the coming year. Key areas we cover are:

  • How going old school and writing a hand written note that isn’t electronically sent can help bring a fizzling prospect back to the table.
  • Taking the time to clear out your CRM and email contacts from the past year and a method for clearing out that brings old prospects back into your conversion funnel.
  • How to “Go Social” at the end of the year by preforming some social media research that will help you stay strong through the holidays and hit 2016 running while everyone is crawling.
