Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

How to Sell at “C” Level

One of the biggest things that impacts sales productivity is insufficient access to senior decision makers – the C Suite – and one of the key things I get asked when I’m coaching my clients to help with their sales development is “how do we get access to people at “C” Level?”
There’s little benefit in having a pipeline filled with deals where you’re engaged with people too low in the food chain but that’s what a lot of standard prospecting creates – meetings with people who may influence the decision but don’t who sign off on it.
One of the best ways to impact sales acceleration is to start at the top – at executive or “C” level – and retain access while also working at lower levels in the organization.
Knowing which organizations to approach and which people in those organizations to target is aided by effective sales and marketing alignment.
This talk covers which organizations to target, which senior executives to target, what they care about, how to reach them, how to create a message that will compel them to talk to you, what to do when you get that critical first meeting and how to follow up.


You will learn:

1.Why you should sell to “C” Level
2.What “C” Level executives do and don’t care about
3.Who to approach and how to approach them
4.How to prepare for, conduct & follow up an initial meeting

  • How to Supercharge Sales by Building An Ideal Client Profile (ScaledUp Ep. 1) Mar 5 2019 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Lloyd Yip, The Startup Sales Expert
    An Ideal Client Profile (ICP) is a detailed description of the clients who would benefit most from your product/service. These clients are more likely to buy in to your vision, advocate for you, and ultimately stay a long term profitable client.

    Knowing your ICP means it’ll be easier to bring in more high value business that STAYS and ADVOCATES for you. As well, because you truly understand your market and their pain points, it is easier for you to improve the product/service in a way which keeps your clients happy.

    On the flipside, not knowing your ICP would mean:

    -It’s more difficult to find clients who want to buy
    -It’s harder to retain clients long-term
    -You’re more likely to bring on poor-fit clients who drain your resources
    -It’s confusing as to which marketing channels to use
    -It’s more challenging to improve the product/service to be in line with your clientele

    You will learn:

    1.How to analyze your existing client base to understand which clients fit your ICP
    2.How to also uncover who are the clients who are BAD fits, so you can avoid them
    3.How you can maximize your sales and marketing efficiency once you have a fully built ICP
    4.How to ultimately leverage your ICP to improve sales and revenue
    5.BONUS: How to discover your ICP even if you have very few clients to look back at

    Due to the expanding involvement of multiple people (and functions) in the decision process, sales cycles are getting longer and the entire process is becoming more complex.

You will also hear about how to maintain the value of your offering while keeping your credibility and leverage strong. Most important, we will give you the details of six proven strategies to shorten the sales cycle:

    1. Factor in the decision process.
    2. Stop excessive and unnecessary reorganizations.
    3. Sell solutions that impact business.
    4. Manage internal expectations.
    5. Don’t overcomplicate it.
    6. Avoid unprincipled concessions.

    This training event is not based on theory, but rather on the specific strategies and tactics developed by top international negotiation expert Mladen Kresic.
