Startup 101: Cold Outbound Sales and Automation

  • Startup Edmonton

From our friend Jeff Park - Account Executive, Rise People:

So you've been working countless hours building out your product, identifying your product/market fit, refining your message, and finding your audience. Great job, you've got your MVP! But now what?

Or maybe you're already well into your sales push and you're finding that there's too many calls to make, too many emails to send out, and too much follow-up to do — in order to get meetings or demos booked.

I've been involved with sales for most of my career (on both the corporate side and running my own startup). And when I first started out, it was scary. Some people are natural-born salesmen, but the reality is that most people hate doing it and don't know how to scale up their efforts. The good news is, is that in recent years, there's been an influx of amazing technology that's been introduced to make the cold outbound sales process so much easier to execute.

During this workshop, I want to provide a bit of guidance on some of the things I've learned from my failures, successes and experiments in sales over the past 10 years. My hope is that it will provide you with some insight and help you on your journey with regards to building a healthy sales funnel.

The main points I'll cover are:

  • Outbound sales in 2017.
  • Crafting your first cold email.
  • Why rejection is awesome.
  • Resources you can use for sales knowledge.
  • Technology and tools that can help you automate your process.

Open Hardware Meetup

  • Startup Edmonton

What is Open Hardware? 
The Open Hardware Meetup is a place where all kinds of people can share an interest in the intersection of hardware, software, connectivity, and user experience. When combined, these elements create a new art which blends the lines of beauty and technology.

Even as computing devices have become more powerful, the underlying technology is now more and more available for everyone. With a few mouse clicks, overnight shipping, and a few hours work, you can build your own versions of ground-breaking products based on simple open platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Beaglebone, Galileo, Edison, and more. Even better, you can create something that has not physically existed. It is the flexibility and power of computing, expressed in physical, tangible form.

Bringing together active investors and tech founders at all stages, Founders & Funders is a chance to connect with a growing community, create connections, and foster relationships before the ask for support is on the table. Often, founders flounder when seeking capital because they put off developing relationships with potential investors because their pitch or product isn’t perfected. Investors, keen to work with the local tech community, are sometimes unsure of where to meet founders outside of formal presentations or networks.
