On Wednesday last week, Venatrix had the pleasure of joining Kaitlen Kelly (Sales Manager @ Klaviyo) and Morgan J Ingram (3x Linkedin Sales Voice, Content Creator & Sales Coach) for an online unfiltered SDR talk. We learnt about all things AI and selling in today’s current environment.
Morgan started off by talking about his journey as an SDR, and how he got to where he is today. He started a YouTube channel called The SDR Chronicles and posted every single day to Linkedin. His brand grew very quickly and soon was promoted to an SDR Manager. Morgan managed 13 SDRs and was discovered by John Barrows. He had trained in Salesforce and came to Morgan to be the first time Sales Trainer. 3 and a half years of sales training - 80 - 120 per year.
Over the years, how has AI changed the landscape when it comes to prospecting over the years?
48% of reps say they aren’t spending enough time doing active selling time. Teams are adding in AI tools to help them accelerate, look up info and input data. Tools will write better, sell better, get data quicker. If you’re able to look at these AI tools and get these components, it’s going to allow you to be very successful in the way you go about it and reach out to individuals!
