He is a 20+ year veteran of the B2B sales industry, including roles in some of the world's largest software companies. Cian is also the author of the Amazon best-selling book, Rebirth of the Salesman.

Cians Top Sales Growth Tip:

“My single best tip for driving sales growth is to stop trying to make a sale. Our anxiety as sellers to make a sale translates into rushed discovery, overly frequent communication and an imbalance in the relationship dynamic with our prospective customers. 

Instead, focus simply on earning the right to move to the next step of the process, by doing an exceptional job at each step of your customers buying process. Do the simple things well, add some value in each interaction, slow down, to speed up. You’re not 50% better or worse than your competitors, so aim for the 1% gains along the way.

Happy Selling!”

Cindy’s Top Sales Growth Tip:

“Before you can sell anything to anyone, you need to sell yourself. People like to buy from people they know and trust. They like personal interactions. They like the human touch. So each member of your sales team must solidify his or her own personal brand as someone who is trustworthy and has the client's best interests at heart. Do this as a team and watch your sales multiply.”

In 2012 Steve founded Badger Maps to help field salespeople be more successful. He is the host of the Outside Sales Talk podcast and has been selected as one of the Top 40 Most Inspiring Leaders in Sales Lead Management.

Steve’s Top Sales Growth Tip:

“The most important growth strategies are the referral and the ‘land and expand' strategy. The ‘land and expand strategy’ is when one person at a company uses your product, and because you make them successful, their coworkers and management finds out about you and it spreads around the organization. 

Work closely with your customers to make them really successful and happy with your product and because of that they will tell their friends, colleagues, ex-co-workers, new co-workers, etc. about your solution. That is how your current customers become your best salespeople and help you grow your business.

Some of your biggest customers can be acquired this way. Maybe one manager sees the success of your product and wants it for the rest of his or her team, then the regional manager sees that one manager’s team is doing well, so then all the regions get it, then the division, etc.”

"In sales, having a strong Point of View (POV) is vital. To succeed, become a trusted advisor, which 87% of B2B buyers expect (Salesforce's State of Sales Report). Create your unique POV by triangulating insights from client discovery interviews, client research, and industry benchmarks data - competitors, peers, and industry trends. Start conversations with, 'I'd like to bounce something off of you.' A solid POV sets you apart and builds lasting client relationships."

He is the author of a number of best-selling books, including How to Change Minds: The Art of Influence without Manipulation, Why People Don’t Believe You: Building Credibility from the Inside Out, and Customer Centered Selling: Sales Techniques for a New World Economy.

Rob’s Top Sales Growth Tip:

“In sales, you need to be persistent, but you will never win in the long term by being pushy. The challenge is usually found in knowing the difference.”
You don’t have to be in sales to know how important it is to stay connected to your customers.
The reality is the biggest difference between being persistent and being pushy has less to do with how often you reach out, and everything to do with the value you provide when you do reach out.
  • Get your client’s consent. Ask your client how he or she would prefer you follow up with them, and take the guesswork out of the equation.
  • Stay organized. Be methodical in how you keep track of the moves you make.  Staying on top of this information also lets you stay in control of your strategy.
  • Try and make every interaction personal. Rather than coming off as pushy, you make it clear that you have an interest in getting to know this person and seeing how you can help them as an individual.
  • Have something to offer when you reach out. Being generous with what you have to offer can help your follow-ups have the right tone, and it will certainly increase your chances of success.
If you want to stay on the right side of the persistent vs pushy dance, it really begins with knowing your customer, and the value you bring to the relationship. That will keep you in rhythm with your clients and respected for your persistence."

You'll immediately find warm leads and people willing to help you crack your book open just by running these simple searches in LinkedIn Sales Navigator.”

“The one and only way for sales leadership to drive sales growth is to provide consistent and effective one-on-one coaching through role-play. 

When the sales manager plays the salesperson and the salesperson plays the prospect you can demonstrate what a good quality conversation should sound like. When the salesperson is the salesperson and the sales manager plays the prospect, you can hear how well prepared the salesperson is for an upcoming conversation. 

Finally, when two salespeople role-play with each other, the sales manager can stop the conversation to provide real time coaching.”

She is also the founder of the publishing company Success in 100 Pages.

Andrea’s Top Sales Growth Tip:

“If individual failure leads to individual success, then team failure should lead to team success. When the entire team embraces rejection as a stepping stone to success, it does two things:

Every rejection becomes collective data towards learning what is not working to shift to trying something else in the team’s messaging, approach, or ICP. They redefine failure so that instead of slowing down or becoming frustrated, they become more resilient, understanding that each 'no' is a pathway to the ultimate 'yes.'”

Robin’s Top Sales Growth Tip:

“My top sales tip to any sales team is this: identify the business problems that your customers experience because they don’t yet have the solution you offer. Stop focusing on the features of your product. Start thinking about why the product matters in the broader context of your customer’s business. This is how you shift from being product-centric to buyer-centric. When you do this, you will stand head and shoulders above your competition.”

Mario Martinez Jr

Mario Martinez Jr. is the CEO and Co-founder of Vengreso. In his numerous B2B Sales and Leadership roles, he has helped companies grow their revenue by hundreds of millions of dollars annually.

He was named the #1 Most Influential Business Leaders by Beyond Magazine and is also one of 20 sales influencers invited to appear in the Salesforce documentary film “The Story of Sales“.

Mario’s Top Sales Growth Tip:

"Prospecting in sales is crucial because without sales conversations the rest of the process won’t begin. They say nothing happens until someone sells something. I say, however, that nothing happens until a sales rep leads a prospect to a sales conversation. For that reason, we teach sellers in our LinkedIn training to subscribe to omni-channel prospecting for the best sales prospecting success. If you’re only leveraging the phone and email and LinkedIn for researching then you're doing prospecting wrong.

The goal of leveraging the omni-channel is to turn every digital engagement into an offline conversation regardless of the medium by which a buyer and seller engage with each other. To do so use an AI tool like FlyEngage AI to help you write relevant and engaging LinkedIn comments quickly! We have enough admin hours as it is that management wants us to do. So focus on what matters most. That is saving time while prospecting so you can reach your buyer across more channels paving the way to get your customer in the channel they prefer!"

Colleen has received many awards for her work in sales development and thought leadership. Salesforce named her as one of the most influential sales figures in the 21st century and she has been recognized as one of the Top 30 Global Sales Gurus.

Colleen’s Top Sales Growth Tip:

“Resilient sales teams drive resilient revenue. Why? Because the best salespeople keep producing regardless of setbacks and adversity. But how many sales leaders provide resiliency training to their sales team? My observation is that most sales managers focus on managing numbers and closing deals. The irony is that the numbers and closed deals would increase if their sales team was equipped with the skills to:
  • Bounce back quickly from setbacks and self-doubt.
  • Embrace lessons learned from a failure to ensure future success.
  • Focus on what they can control rather than what is out of their control.
Build your sales team's resiliency muscles and you will build sales.”

Victor Antonio is an internationally renowned sales trainer and keynote speaker with over 20 years of experience as a top sales executive. While working as a Vice President of International Sales in a Fortune 500 $3B corporation, he was selected from over 500 sales managers to join the President’s Advisory Council for excellence in sales and management. 

He is the author of 9 sales books.

Victor’s Top Sales Growth Tip:

“The 3 x 3 Strategy: As the swirl of technology continues to accelerate, and market uncertainties persist, be it geopolitics, market fluctuations, or inflation, sales teams will retreat to the basics. The first being, retention. How can they hold on to the existing clients/customers they currently have?  

Second, will be what I’ve coined ‘intraprospecting’; finding new business opportunities within existing clients. Beyond upselling or cross-selling, intraprospecting is about creating value by uncovering unconsidered opportunities/needs within an existing client to help them either increase revenue, reduce cost, or expand their market share.  

Lastly, salespeople need to refocus on re-acquiring past clients (i.e., winning back the business).

3x3: Retention, intraprospecting, and reacquisition of clients will be the triple play salespeople will use to (1) reduce cost-of-sales, (2) shorten sales cycles and (3) increase their client wallet-share.”

She is the president of Sales Training Consultants, a company that specializes in sales and leadership training solutions as well as the founder of Sales Training Werks, a do-it-yourself sales training solution.

Alice’s Top Sales Growth Tip:

“Sales managers are key to empowering their sales teams to drive sales growth, close more deals, and meet sales quotas consistently. How? By embracing three transformative actions consistently. 

First, immerse in real-time observations of sales conversations. Get in the car, get on zoom or listen on the phone. Second, forge stronger connections with each seller through impactful one-on-one weekly coaching sessions. And the coaching sessions are not about what did you sell this week. Instead, the conversations work through the barriers that keep them from moving each qualified prospect forward. 

Finally, fuel their expertise with targeted and bite-sized skill-boosting sales training workshops. Even the best of the best sellers want to get better.  Help them eliminate the shortcuts they fall into and introduce the new tools and new rules of today’s sales conversations.”

“My best tip for sales teams to drive sales growth is to turn their sales orgs into a sales lab and start collectively trying new approaches, techniques and technologies to find out what works. Agility is the number one competitive advantage moving forward.  

What worked 6 months ago is not working any more so we have to be constantly upskilling and trying new approaches to stay ahead along with finding new ways of adding value to the client throughout the buying process. It’s no longer an option to be average.”

Rachael’s Top Sales Growth Tip:

“Trust is Core to High Performing Teams.

Building trust is key in sales and teamwork. As the saying goes, "people buy from people." If you want sales success, establishing rapport with decision makers is crucial. The same goes for your team - trust is an essential foundation.
Creating rapport with decision makers is essential for sales success, while trust forms the foundation of a strong team. Working together towards common goals fosters unity and cooperation. To earn trust, be genuine and empathetic, offering support and expressing gratitude. 

After 13 years of sales at Google, if I am not generating trust with either my team, my boss, or my clients and prospects, I am not very successful.”

Ken’s Top Sales Growth Tip:

“Knowing client needs is vital for sales teams, particularly in economically turbulent times. (8/9 Fed easings have been at the beginning of a recession) By deeply comprehending the core challenges and specific pain points of clients at each persona level of the organization, sales professionals can tailor solutions that align with the customer's strategic needs, tying your solution to a 12 month or longer priority.

This approach not only safeguards the ongoing revenue base but also opens avenues for expansion. When clients are hesitant to invest, providing solutions that are essential to their success helps maintain the relevance of your services.

Also, this deep understanding positions the sales team as trusted advisors, fostering stronger, more resilient client relationships.”

His mission is to help companies grow their sales revenue and to have better-performing sales teams.

Doug’s Top Sales Growth Tip:

“It starts with sales team members understanding who their true buyer is. Most salespeople are chasing leads that are unqualified sales leads. There is a difference between a lead, a marketing-qualified lead, a sales-accepted lead, and a sales-qualified lead. If we focus our sales teams on talking with buyers who are not indifferent or pretending, but are qualified in terms of a scoring system which identifies a higher propensity to buy, and we focus the majority of our sales efforts on those people, then we will convert more sales, and thus improve the sales team's sales growth.”

She transitioned from a successful corporate career in outside sales to coaching solopreneurs and sales teams with her unique sales approach, which regularly doubles, or even triples, their results.

Aleasha’s Top Sales Growth Tip:

“How you handle objections is crucial to a prospect moving forward or not. When you "overcome" them with mainstream sales tactics it often ends up feeling predictable and like you're dismissing or invalidating the person's concerns. 

What works even better is to get curious about the objection and hold space for it to actually BE valid. For example, for the objection "this seems time consuming", you can ask "how much time do you have?" More often than not, you'll find that the objection was due to lack of clarity or confusion and would have ultimately ended in a "let me think about it" if you hadn't gotten curious.”

Sally Duby is the Chief Sales Officer at The Bridge Group, a leading inside sales consulting firm. She is an expert in building and transforming inside sales and sales development teams to achieve repeatable and predictable models combining next-generation technologies and services with innovative sales processes to accelerate revenue growth. 

She has worked at major companies such as Oracle, Skype, and also spent 15 years running and managing an inside sales consultancy.

Sally’s Top Sales Growth Tip:

“Last year many companies saw sales cycles increase, average deal sizes fall, and close rate falls. Going into this year it seems to be the same challenge. To combat this you need to increase your pipeline drastically- if typically your goal was 3x pipeline to quota now you need to focus on 5-6X pipeline to quota. 

How do you get there- improving outbound prospecting. It's not rocket science, it is about process, heavy use of phones and proper messaging. Email response rates hoover around 1-2% while phone connect rates can be between 4-11%! The phone provides a much better opportunity to connect. The ones that are getting 9-11% connect rates are using mobile numbers (Modigie) and a tool like Apollo or ConnectandSell to do power dialing. 

They are using AI to supplement and increase productivity. It's important to train your team on how, when to use it and give them the appropriate prompts to use.”

He is also the author of UnReceptive: A Better Way to Sell, Lead, & Influence.

Tom’s Top Sales Growth Tip:

“The number one reason opportunities stall is due to a seller centric process. Build your process around helping your customer quantify the problem, determine the solution needed, and the best practices for evaluating potential solutions – not your solution.

If you align your recommended next step to where they are in their journey, communicate how the step helps them make the right decision, and share best practices designed to help the prospect become an expert buyer (vs. sell your solution), it will be much easier to create a competitive advantage and maintain momentum.

Customers don’t care about Prospect, Qualify, Propose, Negotiate, Contract Signed!

Being other-centered is no longer an option. Product center sellers have already been replaced by AI.”

Marcus’ Top Sales Growth Tip:

“My #1 tip in helping sales teams drive growth is a simple principle: 

Remove obstacles and provide support to help them team succeed. Each team and member has very different needs, in order to thrive. It can be easy to drive the "activity" lever demanding them to increase inputs.

Instead, seek to understand and dive in deep to see what obstacles are in the way. 

Do they need more coaching on objection handling?

Do they need more support on demo's?

The fewer the obstacles and the more support they feel? The greater the performance.”
