In-Short:

Question: How do you perfect an elevator pitch? 

T.S: Yeah, I think the way you perfect it is you ditch it. I don’t think the elevator pitch has any value in sales in 2019. If you think about the concept of an elevator pitch, it implies that you have somebody who is a target. Whether they’re an executive or somebody in the middle of the pack, but somebody that you think is going to be a buyer.

Question: Do you have a ballpark number of calls that should strive to make per week?

T.S: I do but that’s because I arrived at it. I have a tool, and people can reach out to me, it’s a web to call the activity calculator. 

Question: How can I get to a gatekeeper?

T.S: Well you can get through by changing your attitude. So I think again, you know labels mean a lot. So I recommend that everybody go out and find Stu Huntington and get his two books, one, in particular, is get a meeting with anyone. 

Question: How to pitch to a c-suite?

T.S: I guess in whatever language they speak locally. You know they’re people, you know so I think you talk to them in that way. 

Question: How to follow up with the prospects without annoying them?

T.S: It’s a fine line. I think one of the ways to sort of balance it out that you don’t come across as being this too irritating person is to go across various modes of communication.
