9 Tips to Transition into the Technical Sales Arena

Career Makeover Coach

Blog About Tai on Twitter Free Consultation Coaching Options Coaching FAQs Testimonials Contact Resources Reading List CMC Products Events Subscribe to RSS 9 Tips to Transition into the Technical Sales Arena by Tai Goodwin on February 9, 2010 Guest Post by Christopher Bell, III A few months ago I attended the GrowSmallBiz conference hosted by Network Solutions in Washington, DC and during one of the breaks I was speaking to a polished, intelligent, articulate, and enthusiastic professional who had years of experience selling copier products, but wanted to know how to break into the technology sales and business development field. What’s coincidental is that it was the second time in the last few weeks I’ve been asked the very same question, so I thought I’d offer a few tips for competent professionals who are honestly interested in pursuing this kind of career change: Avoid going in thru front door via human resources. Traditional hiring processes are exclusionary, meaning they’re designed to keep people out. HR personnel can only say “No” they can’t say “Yes” to a potential hire. If you can’t connect with a real decision-maker to whom you would personally present your value, then you’re not ready for a technology sales career transition. Talk with people in the niche you wish to work to ascertain what’s hot, relevant, and what’s keeping those in the know up at night. Read their blogs, attend their virtual webinars and follow them on social media networks. There is a strong connection that can be developed by discussing the highlights of another person’s interests. Do your homework. Study… a lot. Go to the library and read the trade periodicals to become familiar with the general language and buzz words of the field you’re interested in. Download white papers and brochures. “Follow” a few companies you’d really want to work with. If they’re publicly listed, dial in to their quarterly call, and read their 10-k. These activities will detail the latest news, opportunities, wins, and concerns of the company. When contacting a decision-maker or business influencer, ask them for their help and advice (everyone wants to help someone.) Get to know their executive assistant or secretary and ask them to setup an informal 20-minute introduction at their local coffee shop before business hours, or setup an invitation for a quick sandwich and informal lunch at a local deli. To schedule a meeting you should be prepared to restate some of the quotes in their press releases or paraphrase statements made on the company’s quarterly report. Always leave the person you’re speaking with the impression you know as much or more about their company, than they do! Memorize the salient points of a company’s summary product brochure word-for-word so that by the time you get a face-to-face meeting, the person you’re meeting already sees you as fellow colleague or employee. Success in sales is about your track record. Be prepared to be your own best advocate and articulate where have you won before in life and your career , who helped you get there, and what it took for you to become #1? Ask them “If you were in my shoes, what ’s your next best step?” Personally hand them your resume and references and then ask them for their sponsorship. On employee skills testing… ” there will never be, and there has never been a test that can prove the heart of winner” – Art Williams. There are lots of career-changers out there who could use your help. Are there any tips you might add? Christopher C. Bell III, Senior Partner of ChrisBell3rd & Company LLC, is highly sought after as a technology sales hunter, business development specialist, and high-octane professional speaker. Chris’ professional credentials and affiliations include but are not limited to: Executive training at Harvard Law School Program on Negotiation , with active memberships and service in the Strategic Account Management Association (SAMA) , American Society for Training and Development (ASTD) , and National Executive Committee for Minorities in Technology Sales (MiTS).

I sense that “knowing somebody on the inside&# gets you in, but I sense that this is a hard barrier for many people (who would other-wise be competent) to crossover. You article seems to imply that sales in the technology and business development fields is taxing work, but so it the task of trying to get a placement (appointment) into organizations that need or hire sales persons for such work. Your advice is soundgiven the world of sales in the technological and business development fields. Good advice.

You Can Still Be Fired for Being LGBTQ in Some States, but Maybe the Supreme Court Will Fix That

Evil HR Lady

21 states (and Washington, DC) have put their own protections into place, leaving the majority of states on their own. Discrimination against people for their sexual orientation is wrong, right? We should hire, promote, and pay people based on what they contribute to the business not on who they date (or don’t date). But, federal law isn’t clear and right now, LGBTQ people only have clear protections in place in some states.
