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.

Today’s guest is Paul Rush, founder of Substantial – a digital design agency based in Seattle, Washington.

Substantial is a software product development company that help clients bring new software product into the market. Paul has sold huge projects and have worked with large companies such as Amazon, T-Mobile, Google, Mercedes Benz, ADO, and many more.

As the company founder, Paul has always been the lead salesperson and responsible for bringing in these companies as clients. And that’s exactly why I had Paul on the show...

Some of the topics to be discussed today are:

 

  • The three types of company founders when it comes to sales and having a selling mindset.
  • Why sales should be the number one priority for every company’s growth.
  • The systems and frameworks Paul uses ensure that sales is the priority for him every day.
  • The Goldilocks Rule for challenging yourself at the right level to make sure that your work is neither too easy or too difficult when it comes to selling.
  • The importance of curiosity in the sales process.
