Startup Selling: Talking Sales with Scott Sambucci

Over the past twenty years, I’ve led three Silicon Valley startups to their first customers and revenue, and sold everything from financial data, enterprise software, and vaporware to cabinet doors, amusement park daily programs, and “would you like fries with that…?” My customers have included the largest financial institutions in the world, top US Universities, cabinet door makers and people that eat at Applebees and go to amusement parks... I’ve learned a lot, and made a few, ahem, well… a lot, of mistakes. Here in The Sales Podcast with Scott Sambucci, I share the lessons learned from my past two decades of selling. In each episode, I discuss a specific topic in selling and sales strategy like how to find new prospective customers, how to manage leads, how to run an effective sales meeting, uncovering customer needs, and developing pricing strategies. Episodes are a mix of guest interviews, observations from the field, and sales techniques that I’m using every single day. And people that care about such things, I’ve written two books, been a TEDx Speaker, been featured on CNBC, The Financial Times and NPR. Oh… I’m also a husband, a dad, and a three-time Ironman triathlete. Build your sales process so that you can have the company you imagine. The Sales Podcast with Scott Sambucci will help you get there.

Wes Bush is a challenger. He’s challenged himself by running marathons, skydiving, and building a remote business. He’s challenged an entire industry to find a better way to approach SaaS growth. Wes is allergic to the status quo.

As founder and president of the ProductLed, Wes spends his days teaching SaaS businesses how to flip the traditional sales playbook on its head and build products that sell themselves.

Wes holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Global Business and Digital Arts from the University of Waterloo. A respected business consultant, Wes understands that flashy marketing and hard sells can’t replace the value a customer receives from an exceptional product. 

A strong brand and social proof are no longer enough to build trust with the modern buyer. People need to try before they buy. Product-Led Growth turns that philosophy into an executable business strategy.

 

Some of the topics that we covered are:

 

  • Product-led Growth vs. Sales-Led Growth

    • Approach to demonstrating value

    • When is it appropriate to use either or even both?

    • Strategies for growth

    • Onboarding New Customers

This is Part 5 of our series – First Principles for Startup Founders

 

 In this episode, Scott shares why startup founders MUST establish Product-Problem Fit BEFORE they establish a Product-Market Fit product.

 

Most founders I talk with started their company because they saw a big problem in the market or a big gap with the existing solutions.

 

The very first thing we need to do when we’re going out and selling is to make sure that our product solves a problem for our future customers AND to establish what sort of customers to target early in the company’s sales work.
