Joining me on this episode of Accelerate! is Rod Sloane, The Cold Email Coach, a sales expert, host on the Sales & Marketing Alignment channel on BrightTALK, and manager of the Sales & Marketing Alignment Group on LinkedIn. Among the many topics that Rod and I discuss are why he believes cold emailing is a more effective prospecting method than cold calling, how to use cold emailing to build a larger pipeline of qualified opportunities, how to construct a broader engagement strategy within a major account and why text-based cold email will work better than HTML email.

 

KEY TAKEAWAYS

[6:07] Rod coaches CEOs and sales teams to have realistic expectations of the time it takes to sell to a new account.

[6:50] Rod explains why corporations resist adding new vendors when established vendors can already provide your service or product.

[8:54] Why the key to selling a new account is having multiple contacts throughout the organization.

[11:04] How to research and understand a buyer’s requirements when they resist sharing information.

[14:04] Why your company needs a larger pipeline of leads than you currently have to increase sales.

[17:42] Rod describes how to be efficient in cold email marketing. Your goal for an email response should be the chance of a referral for a warmer phone call.

[19:12] What are the 4 parts of a good cold email message?

[24:08] Why Rod advises sending cold email to the most senior executive at the account, not to junior people. And, why the more senior people will be more likely to respond.
