Week #4 Project Update — Tech Tools, Lead Gen, and Voicemails
Hey guys, thanks for stopping by! I set a goal to learn everything that I could about succeeding in sales in one month. I read books, listened to podcasts, did a ton of research, and put what I learned into practice. And I documented my process for it. This is my week three project update.
This week, I learned some sales tech tools, how to approach a voicemail, and how to handle lead generation. I created four different posts breaking down everything that I learned.
The Posts I Wrote This Week:
LinkedIn & LinkedIn Sales Navigator are probably the two most powerful tools in sales. It’s where you find, connect, and build relationships with leads. So, I learned as much as I could about the tools and put together a guide to show beginners how to get the most out of them.
Salesloft is one of the most highly recommended tools in sales. I break down everything someone would need to know about that strategy behind using it in my post.
There is a lot of debate about voicemails. Is recording a voicemail even worth it? How much personalization does the voicemail need? How long should the voicemail be? After looking at all of the different perspectives, I came up with my viewpoints and broke them down in this post.
I learned that lead generation is a game of specification and scaling the unscalable. In this post, I wrote about how I would scale personalized lead generation.
Skills I worked on this week:
- How to conduct voicemails
- The best uses for LinkedIn Sales Navigator
- How to use LinkedIn and why it’s so important
- The ins and outs of Salesloft
- How to handle lead generation
- Time Management
The month has come to an end
The month has come to a close. I am happy with what I accomplished and learned this month. This process has made me incredibly motivated and excited to try to land an entry-level sales role. I want to test out everything I learned in the real world. If you want to check out everything I completed this month, check it out here.
