How To Sell The Conference To Your Boss?
Tell your boss they’ll never make a better investment in the future of THEIR sales team or YOUR career for a price THIS affordable. Period. Just look at that list of actionable knowledge you’re about to gain. Sales Hacker Conferences are still intimate, so you’ll even get a chance to mix it up with the speakers before and after their sessions. Our audience is full of top notch, up and coming salespeople that are looking to connect, learn, and maybe even recruit or be recruited.
So, cancel that Netflix subscription you never use, tell your boss you’ll come out of pocket if they won’t send you, or do whatever you need to do, but miss this at your own risk.
The “How to Sell Your Boss” Checklist
- What’s your company’s average deal size? Ok, so if you land even one deal from something you learned or a connection made at this event, you’re on top!
- If you learn one new strategy or tactic you can put in place at your company, what is that worth?
- Is your company hiring? This is a great place to find talented salespeople who actually care, and want to master their craft as a salesperson.
- You can finally meet face-to-face with those big wigs at Company X. They desperately need your solution but you haven’t been able to get in touch, until now! Few things beat face-to-face meetings.
- “Hey boss, do we like saving and making money at this company? Because what we’re able to implement in our sales process after attending this event will do both.”
- If you’re not investing in your employees growth, then your employees will find someone else who is.
