A Sample of the Challenges You’ll Tackle: 

A global digital media and marketing company on the search for lead generation solutions tried to push away the Sales Development Rep who called them, being hesitant to schedule anything from a cold call. The SDR was tenacious in making the case for why it was in the prospect’s best interest to get connected, as the SDR had done the work to pinpoint why it was a strong use case. The prospect eventually agreed and was handed off to the Account Executive and the deal was won a day later.
