You can try starting with BDR/SDR roles (straight cold calling) then grow into an AE role

I was a fashion stylist for 14 years and got into tech sales as a SDR- great place to start, make sure commission is uncapped and you’ll rake in the $$$$.

Inside sales roles are growing in popularity. Not a major step down but allows you the exposure to the industry needed to go to an AE role.

I have been in SMB and MM sales but just started an Enterprise AE position. I’m working on email templates and am curious if any other Enterprise AEs would recommend separate email templates for companies with 250 users vs 1000+ users? My manager recommended setting up separate email templates but. I usually just have 2-3 generic plug and play templates that I tweak based on conversations/typical pain points. Just want to see if there’s a case for separate templates that I might be missing
