I have a total of 4 years sales experience, 1 year in life insurance sales and 3 in retail banking (lending, investment referrals, merchant services referrals).

Anyone in tech sales willing to chat? ☕️


Hi, I am currently in the process of breaking into tech sales. One hurdle that I am trying to get over is being able to displaying my current role as a Materials planner into tech sales, I currently do alot B2B communication high volume emailing and calls. Any help would be appreciated.


I’m going to be out on a PIP and I feel like I’m doing everything I can - there’s just not enough new accounts to go after


Would anybody be willing to share what a good pay range should be for an SDR or BDR role with 2 years tech experience? Graduated from the business school at the University of Michigan if that helps. Thanks!


Curious as to what the market value is for a bdr/sdr. I have been in my role for nearly a year and just curious as to what everyone is getting in the market?

Would you attend a meeting with other like minded SDR/BDRs to showcase your skills and to see how other people use video to prospect, I’m thinking about doing a small webinar free of charge. What does the community think?


* posting this in multiple bowls for exposure.

Hello everyone! I’ve had about 5 years of BD experience in increasingly senior roles and have done a few side projects to enhance BD operations on a consultative basis. I’m looking for a BD leadership role as a team lead or a manager but am having a hard time finding these roles. Most “BD manager” listed jobs are just BDR roles. Can anyone give me recommendations for key words to search and the best websites to find these positions? Thanks so much!


Hey all,
I was wondering how accurate indeed salary estimates are? I live in a LCOL area in PA, and the estimate for the company I’m interviewing with is 67k - 85k. They’re a relatively big tech company and I’m applying to be a Business Development Specialist. Thank you in advance!


Hey everyone! Want to hear your thoughts on having to complete a sales test as last stage before an offer? They said it’s 7 general sales questions… no prior info needed. Any thoughts or advice? Is this normal?


The hardest part of being an SDR is not

- prospecting
- sending emails
- making cold calls

It’s the “daily discipline” of doing those things over and over and over

Consistency always wins! 💪


How would you respond to “Send me an email” while making a cold call?


Interviewing with Gartner for business development manager position. I’m not sure where to start with salary discussion. Does anyone have info on a range for this position? Also interested in information about this position if anyone is familiar with the company. Thank you.
