Hot take

  • Qualification is your key driver

A day at ZIVVER

You start your day with a clear plan of the objectives you wish to achieve this week, who you are calling, planned time set aside for updating the CRM and speaking with the team.

At 10am you have a call with an exciting new prospect that you met at a recent trade show in London and the agenda is to go through some qualifying questions and then move to a demo. The call went well and things are moving ahead so you update your CRM with the latest notes and schedule your next meeting. You now have a 30 minute meeting with Marketing to discuss a CISO roundtable event in Manchester that you are organising for some exciting new prospects.

After lunch you have a weekly sales meeting with ZIVVER's UK Channel Manager to discuss pipeline and this quarters deals so you make sure you have your CRM is up to date before you join the call. The meeting was very positive and you are confident of hitting the numbers given the new influx of leads from marketing. You update your forecast accordingly so you are ready for your update with the VP Sales.

Now you spend a couple of hours prospecting into new accounts. It’s been a great day full of positivity and you manage to secure some follow up meetings for next week. With your inbox now cleared and a clear action plan for tomorrow it’s time to close your laptop and relax before another busy day of customer meetings tomorrow.
