Craig Walker, CEO of Dialpad, joins me on this episode of #Accelerate!

 

SUMMARY

 

Craig Walker and some co-workers at Google Voice noticed that businesses were adopting cloud productivity suites. They recognized that business communications also belonged in the cloud. Craig and his associates left Google and co-founded Dialpad in 2011, offering cloud communication services. Their products are UberConference, DialpadTalk, DialpadSell, DialpadSupport, and AI that instantly converts conversations to text and suggests content in real-time for you to use in conversations. Craig explains DialpadSell and TalkIQ.

 

Sales performance is worsening even while we are in the Golden Age of tech. Good sales reps want to improve. TalkIQ AI can help them improve their practices and performance. Sales people who lack the will to improve cannot easily be helped to change. Andy talks about his company’s curated book club for sales teams. Andy notes the shortcomings of some tech being used today. Craig describes the advantages of having Voice Intelligence in your sales conversations.

Kimberlee Slavik has published five successful sales books in 2019 and is working on three more. Readers’ reactions to her first book led to the others in a series. She also wrote a leadership book from her sales experience. Kimberlee recommends upgrading sales management standards and suggests requiring licensing for sales management; there should be consequences for bad behavior in the sales industry.

 

Kimberlee was motivated to write Visnostics to provide plans for the execution of the sales theories she had learned along the way in sales. She tells how to flip the story to appeal to customers. Generation Zs have a three-second attention span so you have to get their attention with your first words. You never know what your audience is going to be. Different people have different perspectives; present your services from their perspective. Kimberlee relates the meeting that sparked that moment of understanding to create the basis of Visnostics.

Ian Altman, co-author of Same Side Selling: How Integrity and Collaboration Drive Extraordinary Results For Sellers and Buyers, 2nd Edition, joins me again on this episode of #Accelerate!

 

SUMMARY

 

Ian introduces the second edition of Same Side Selling. Ian advises subject matter experts and trusted advisors who serve their clients’ needs with integrity. Ian emphasizes to aim for the results your clients have in mind and build trust with them. Andy and Ian explore how offering discounts diminishes your integrity. Ian shares a story about home renovations. Ian reveals his decision quadrant for asking questions about the client’s problem to solve, the importance of solving it, the desired result, and who else is impacted by it. Ask the right questions about what a successful result looks like to your client.

 

Andy and Ian agree that companies should hire salespersons that serve their clients with value. Clients will buy proposed solutions that help them to be successful. Ian tells a car dealership story. Your company must have a culture of integrity and hire salespersons with integrity. The objective is not to make the sale at all costs but to sell the client the needed product or service at the right time.
