Nearbound Daily #072: It's All About Trust 3 min

Deliver value to stay relevant

Oof. Trust is at an all—time low 😥.

Buyers & sellers alike have been burned 🔥.

Instead of the tips, tricks, and hacks...

Start having authentic deep discussions about business.

So much info is available; come prepared with research.

There’s no reason not to show up with at least 1 theory on how to help and be a resource.

Everyone wants to expand their network with quality people that solve important problems.

Be the one that actually knows the people in their network and how they help.

Be the one that can connect the dots!

Keep in mind that everyone has their guard up. They think you have a secret pitch to simply extract value 💵.

You’ll have to show them by delivering value and staying relevant.

Here’s how to do it:

1. Learn their specialties, pains, priorities, and goals

2. Find a way to introduce folks in your network together

Hint: match up the folks with a pain to someone with that specialty!

Give buyers what they want

Sean Adams joined Jessie Shipman on the Selling Together podcast to talk about leading with partner-centric selling.

Here’s what it takes to do partner-centric selling:

  1. Quota retirement
  2. Journalistic-level curiosity
  3. Find and educate where there are complements

Through customer insights, the team realized there was more demand for their customers to be purchasing them.

The problem wasn’t the product or the market.

The problem was education.

So they began with a different approach.

Instead of offering a new contract, they found partners within their customers’ tech stack. Sean explained,

It was so much simpler for us to transition to, ’here, we can just bolt this onto the contract you have over there.’

It was life-changing for the sellers AND customers!

💡Quote of the Day

Everything drives from the customer. The way that we got into being a partner first organization came from our customers. It didn’t come from some closed boardroom, or some 10k report about the best macro trend. — Sean Adams, Head of Sales & Partnerships at iorad
