Nearbound Daily #029: Build a Nearbound Motion 3 min

The future is Nearbound

Your sales team is playing in extra hard mode right now.


You can make it easier by running a Nearbound strategy and getting intel from partners, and co-selling when appropriate.


It’s not about asking for leads from partners so you can send more cold emails. It’s about digging one layer deeper for intel — not just what you have directly, but what you can access through your partner network.


Then going one layer deeper on tactics — not just what you can do directly, but what you can do jointly with partners.


Is it more prep and planning? Yep. Does it improve results? Absolutely. Deals with partners have a 41% higher win rate and are 43% larger.


Unless your current approach is working perfectly, building Nearbound into your outbound and inbound motions is worth the extra effort.
