My new book Predictable Prospecting is set to inspire sales teams all over the world to reformat and build their B2B sales pipelines. Curious to know more about the writing process behind the book? This episode features a conversation with Jeremey Donovan, my co-author on Predictable Prospecting, as we discuss our reasoning behind writing the book and what we think sales representatives can get out of our methodology.
Jeremey Donovan is the Head of Sales Strategy at Gerson Lehrman Group. When he isn’t at his day job, you can find Jeremey serving as an adjunct professor at the NYU School of Professional Studies or writing and speaking about Public Speaking - his book How To Deliver a TED Talk topped the bestseller list both domestically and internationally.

“Roleplay every day”- Marylou
“If I had to point to a single factor as the key make or break in success - it’s timeblocking”- Jeremey Donovan
“There is no perfect subject line, there is no perfect email…. The thing that matters the most is personalization” - Jeremey Donovan
“Send quality down the pipeline so that the clients that you close bring in the highest revenue potential” - Marylou
Content is what moves a prospect through the sales pipeline. How do you know what content to create and when to deliver it? On this episode I discuss how to use thought stages to plan inbound marketing efforts. I believe that every sales conversation has the potential to provide valuable information. Tracking and using details such as prospect awareness and pain points helps fine tune content and increases conversions.
"You owe it to the right markets to really reach and serve them." - Jay
“Ask meaningful questions, not vanity questions.” - Marylou
"All categories of buyers, all stages of buyers, they're not all worth the same." - Jay
