Brian

  1. Now ad words are 100% above the fold
  2. Facebook now has "Pay per lead" it's a big change
  3. Now we have 14 vendors versus 5 ten years ago
  4. Paid content and content marketing go well together
  5. Ten years ago the web site augmented the sales person. Today the sales person augments the web site.
  6. Questions are the new keyword phrase
  7. 50 percent of content needs to be video
  8. Users want a self service environment with your brand
  9. More people don't have a phone on their desk. Please don't leave a voice mail.
  10. Start with the sale and work backwards.  The cold call is dead. Sales start with a personal email fron a sales rep, that sends 10 well thought out emails per day versus 100.
  11. Today, customers expect value before the sale. Use a Casper mattress for 100 days before paying.
  12. Always be closing, Is now always be helping
  13. Emails. Less is more.  
  14. Cold calls. None is more.
  15. Trials. A taste is more.
  16. Sales reps still have the power and knowledge. But later in the sales process.
  17. 58% of sales starts with customers talking with each other
  18. 47% from media articles
  19. Base commission, pricing and recurring revenue plan on customer success
  20. Take dollars from marketing and spend it on adding value to your customer delight
  21. Terrible time to be the incumbent. 50% churn at the top 500 world brands

  8. Messaging apps have more users than other apps.  Now Slack. Teams and Facebook Work
  9. Messaging trust is stronger than email
