Jake Dunlap, Founder and CEO of Skaled (formerly Chartbeat & Glassdoor), joined me in the studio for this weeks Bowery Capital Startup Sales Podcast! This week we discuss what could be considered the most fundamental skill of a quality enterprise sales person, finding the right person to speak to and actually getting that person on the phone. Navigating through the C-Suite can be daunting at first but this week we have Jake, who is an expert in the cold-call/email and has worked with dozens of enterprise startups helping them hone their prospecting into a replicable sales process.
We talk about keywords to look in a LinkedIn profile to determine if someone is more or less likely to adopt new technology as well what you can learn from taking a step back and looking at the org-structure of the entire team.
