BDRs: Can I get some honest reviews and experiences from your time as a BDR? I’m making the pivot from 5 years in the sports industry (plus 2 years exp of direct sales at Spectrum). Just received an offer from Zoom ($21 an hour base. Seems low imo?) Negotiating this week and want to see if it’s worth it. Thanks everyone

I’m a BDR/SDR making $85k, 125k OTE! At my previous company where I worked for a year, I was making 55k base, 65k OTE.

Nice!

That is very low in my opinion but I think it depends on what experience you’re coming with and the company, even though BDR is considered an entry level tech sales role. I’ve been a BDR for the past year making 65k base and 80k OTE but I did have hospitality sales experience.

Agree- that’s on par. Very few tech sales roles are hourly as well unless it’s a contract position

What’s the total OTE? And do you know account size you’ll cover? That is low in general, surprised since it’s zoom

Hello folks,

For any Tata Consultancy HR, I have a question about TCS BPS benifits.
When I joined TCS under BPS last year, my health insurance cover is Rs.5,00,000 with no other domiciliary.
Right now when I see hiring page of BPS I can see below benifits.
My question is why the difference and can TCS revise the benefits for the people who joined previously with less benefits.

Resources for an enterprise BDR?

Hello All,

I recently got a job working as a BDR for an enterprise rep. We sell a SaaS product for other tech companies. It is a new realm for me as I have been primarily an AE throughout my career.

What resources are out there to help me learn how to work these accounts (500+ person companies)? looking for tips on everything from writing email cadences, sending video messages, and even qualifying leads during discovery calls.

Thanks for the help!

Top SDRs oftentimes don't sound like traditional salespeople when cold calling. They use a very casual voice tone.

Here are a few tips:

1. Avoid upward inflections at the end of sentences. This makes it sound like everything you ask is a question
2. Slow down and eliminate buzzwords. Speaking fast makes you sound nervous and less confident
3. Avoid reading from a script - internalize your message and put it into your own works so you sound like YOU!

Thoughts? What are your top tips?
