Sales

Quick clarifier - sales means growth via 1-1 conversations. If you've made it this far in my profile and are thinking anything other than "This guy likes sales" - please let me know so I can update the profile. Sales is my passion as it's often the key determination for a business succeeding or failing - would 1k, 10k or 100k more next month make your life much much easier? Sales is the fastest way to get it, and that's what I do above all else.


Productized services

Productised service businesses have the standard agency problems but with a natural inbuilt scalability. This problems are either people, process or pipeline based. I help people MOST with the pipeline problem BUT I just love productised businesses as they combine the way I like to do business - they're a high value product, with potentially long retention, in the services space. What's not to love?


Building a team

Building a SALES team. Most people miss what sales actually is and that it is hard to find good sales talent, it's expensive to pay them and then they wonder why cutting corners on either of the above means they missed their goals. I can help if you need support with team structure (eg pods, territories or a free for all), team composition (eg reps, SDRs, BDMs or onboarding) and the order to build it.


Mentor Toolkit
Trello
over 8 years of experience

Trello has been one of my go to's for many years, it's simple yet insanely powerful. The free version is ok, but the paid version is AMAZING, repeating cards, auto updating tasks and the beautiful kanban style layout make Trello one of the top productivity to-do list apps going.

Close
over 2 years of experience

Close is great for a specific use case. If you're looking for something simple, for a small sales team, and you don't want to get bogged down in all the bells and whistles then Close might be for you. Personal I find it limiting once you have more than 2 people selling or if you want to add automation of any kind, plus the reporting must be exported. All in all I know a lot of people very happy with Close and I work with it often with clients.

Hubspot
over 5 years of experience

Hubspot CRM is POWERFUL, but can be expensive and the reporting is limited. I ONLY know about hubspot as a CRM and do not use the email marketing features. Happy to chat about workflows, sequences and all rough automation.

ConvertKit
over 2 years of experience

I have been using Convertkit in my own business since 2019 and have experience with forms, landing pages and subscribers. Highly recommend their webinars.

Intercom
over 3 years of experience

I have worked with intercom to automate onboarding and create a robust upsell process from freemium to paid user. I especially enjoy building webhook based triggers for additional support to automate the upsell process

Salesforce
over 8 years of experience

Having worked as both a rep and a manager within the salesforce ecosystem I can provide insight into the best set up and also help build robust reporting.

Scott was very precise with what needs to be done given our situation. He also gave benchmarks and targets we should aim for, which, as a person with no sales background, I found to be very valuable, and saves me a lot of time. I was hesitant at first to book another mentor because I've been booking a lot of sales mentors in the past week, but I'm glad I did. With the super short amount of time, we were able to tackle a lot and I'm very clear on what my next steps are. Thanks so much Scott!

Scott was very quick to grasp the concept of by business so was able to offer great guidance for my launch in only a 30 minute period of time. He validated some of my thoughts, reconfirmed other ideas I had and provided me with a next step and short path to launching my MVP. He also provided some great advice on my pricing strategy and encouraged me to get the product out to market and to solicit feedback from users before spending too much time perfecting it.

Scott gets down to business and he knows his business! He asks tough questions and knows how to separate the wheat from the chaff. We covered a lot of ground in 30 minutes and I walked away excited about our growth potential and eager to hit the ground running. I am looking forward to spending more time with Scott and putting his ideas into action.

I booked a call with Scott to go over an outbound sales campaign I'm trying to piece together for GrowthMentor. Scott asked me super smart questions before the call just to make sure that we hit the ground running when it started. I sent him my email sequences and a bit of a brief about the buyer personas over a Google Doc. So when we started the call, it was right out of the gates value add. He started the call by asking me a couple exploratory questions to understand "high level" what the business objectives were (and why), I appreciated that. Then we transitioned to a screenshare and where he gave some great recommendations on how to improve the cadence. My head is spinning right now (in a really really good kind of way). Thanks Scott!

I thoroughly enjoyed my conversation with Scott and he demonstrated his domain expertise around repeatable sales systems and processes. He helped me reframe my thoughts around a specific challenge I am having in my sales process. Approaching the situation with this perspective allowed me to overcome it. That alone is invaluable. Thank you Scott.
