This will sound silly, but block your calendar, and do it daily. Consistency is key!


Not silly at all - gotta respect the golden hours 👏

Get really good at using the different filters in sales nav. There’s a ton of useful ones but a ton of people I’ve talked to just stick to the basics like company, job function, seniority level



I heard Palo Alto Networks is in a hiring freeze for the BDR role. Any news on if that is true? Sorry, not trying to derail your thread.


Confirming this is accurate- will likely resume after aug 1 in new FY so stay in touch

Random —-Can you tell me if someone still works at Palo? I think they are faking for months now lol Zoom Info says they don’t work there. Can you check for me 🫣

In the lateraling recruiting process right now. I received an offer from one MM bank and have not heard back from another MM bank. Is leveraging my current offer too aggressive to force the hand of the other MM bank? It’s been 3 business days since the super day and the recruiter said in my immediate follow-up that the team really enjoyed meeting me (which could be BS but also a possible tactic to keep me around). Would love to hear thoughts.

I’m a lawyer based in Europe. I’m lateraling to a firm in a new jurisdiction on Monday and negotiated a decent pay increase a few months ago (new jurisdiction has significantly higher income taxes so negotiated based on a comparable net pay). My old firm has just announced it is increasing salaries by around 15% which will almost negate what I negotiated at new firm. New firm doesn’t review salaries till September. What are my options here so that I’m not out of pocket?

Additional Posts in Business Development Reps (BDRs and SDRs)

Do you guys know of any tech companies hiring SDR/BDR roles remote?


I am thinking about taking a job at a cybersecurity company as an SDR. I am switching from real estate to tech sales. I know SDR is entry level and I am a little hesitant to take the position because I am almost 30. I am wondering if anyone else has taken the role mid-career and how it went for you? Was it worth working through to get into higher levels of a tech company?


Currently an event coordinator for a company and looking to move into either another event coordinator role or into an SDR or BDR role. Does anyone know of any opportunities?


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!


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! 💪


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’ve been applying for a lot of SDR positions i have a couple of interviews set up for the next 2-3weeks. I have a total of 6 years sales experience whats a good salary range i should be aiming for? What did you make in your first year as a sdr?


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?

What are your financial and career goals as a BDR/SDR?


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!

Assessing whether I’m being compensated fairly after being passed over for pay raise request. Every BD in the US got a raise. 5 years of experience as a BD. I am now the only person managing BD for the whole of Canada for several service lines. US based finance related company. I report to one manager & the CEO. No commission, just salary and bonus. Been here for almost 2 years and we’ve doubled employees and are opening multiple offices. What would the appropriate compensation be for my role?
