Building Business

Starting a Sales Force

 

The prospect of hiring a salesperson or building a sales force is an important consideration for founders in their pursuit for growth in the market, particularly for B2B/B2E start-ups. The dream is that you would hire a "gun", and they would get out there and make it all happen. Unfortunately, this almost never happens and usually ends in hurt feelings, lost revenue and sometimes damage to brand. Yazz explores this challenge and the importance of preparation and expectation management when making this leap, and presents a business preparedness checklist for founder consideration when embarking on this journey or optimizing it.

About the Speaker:

Yazz Krishna was the founder of Five Faces, a B2E organisation that provides enterprise software, hardware and managed services into Retail and Hospitality for many years, followed by building Five Faces Health and breaking into the healthcare market in Australia.

Pricing Masterclass

 

Due to popular demand, Jon Manning will be facilitating another Pricing Masterclass on the 1st of December!

FLOCCINAUCINIHILIPILIFICATION, the longest “F” word in the English language, is the habit of estimating something as valueless.

This talk, based on Jon’s recently released book, will help entrepreneurs, side-hustlers and small business owners overcome this common mistake when valuing, pricing and monetizing your products and services.

The talk will explore 10 common myths surrounding pricing, as well as 10 common pricing mistakes. It will then introduce you to value-based pricing, and four ways you can price your products and services using these Floccinaucinihilipilification-busting methodologies.
