Nearbound Daily #075: Trust is the Only Way 3 min

🗡️ Cut through the chaos...

The noise will only go up.

Attention will only go down.

Relationships and trust are the only way through.

This is the way to work smarter, not harder.

Truly finding ways to collaborate with your network will be what sets the elite apart from the rest.

After practicing this for a while it becomes second nature to relentlessly seek how you can give before ever wasting time on how you will get.

To set you up for success, 1 tip today:

1. Seek to give to people who have a high likelihood to give back.

This is your version of how a company sets its Ideal Customer Profile.

Time to start:

1. Listening to what your network needs & share yours

2. Giving what you can

3. Document everything along the way

4. Get confirmation when value is realized on the other side

5. Make an ask

6. Track what makes the people who create value for you different

7. Start all over again with this greater targeting context

The efforts will compound into better and better results.

🗣️ Quote of the Day

Partnerships do help deals go faster, but you have to put in the work into the relationships. And that’s not all on the AE, BDR, or SDR to figure out.
They should be engaging the partner people, and the partner people should be engaging them. - Jessie Shipman
