Chart Your Path to Success in the Booming Tech Business

Understanding how to sell is fundamental to building a business and a career. It’s why more than ⅓ of CEOs come from a sales background…

But selling has changed. We no longer just sell products, we sell our ideas, we sell technology, we sell better outcomes — we sell ourselves.

As a sales development rep (SDR), you’ll learn to build relationships, identify opportunities, establish value for customers, and develop transferable skills that you’ll use throughout your career. 

You’ll place yourself directly in the line of revenue, and encounter ever-growing opportunities to accelerate within and sustain a lucrative career.

What Makes a Successful Sales Development Representative

The best SDRs master the art of generating, qualifying and moving prospects through the sales pipeline, and do it with a human touch.

A great SDR will never memorize a sales pitch. They’ll listen, empathize, and deeply understand their prospects’ challenges.

Top SDRs communicate value in a way that connects with their prospects on a personal level, and provides helpful and valuable solutions along the way.
