The Sales Development Podcast

Episode 55: Rex Biberston

Summary: 
In this episode, David welcomes Rex Biberston to the show. Rex is the co-founder and CEO of The Sales Developers and the co-author of the book, Outbound Sales, No Fluff, where he and his co-author, Ryan Reisert lists down everything you need to know about outbound sales at this time. Listen as Rex and David discuss into detail the contents of this new book and how it can help you in your sales development needs.

 3 Key Points:

  1. The market changes and evolves — what was “in” during the last 5 years may not be effective tomorrow.
  2. Outbound sales is not just trying to get an account, it’s about checking into people if your product can solve their problems.
  3. Don’t ever use the same script in the same way in every call — you have to own your calls!
