Hello fellow Sales Savages,
I am in a role that can best be defined as a BDR that works with existing clients to assist with renewals and upsells.
My current role has a streamlined track into becoming an Account Manager (IC) where I would work with existing clients to renew, cross sell, and upsell them.
Only problem is, becoming an AM has almost no allure to me. Dealing with pissed off clients that have technical issues, negotiating contracts, and working to get a small incremental upsell quarter after quarter doesn't seem rewarding to me.
I've explored becoming a BDR Manager and I think that it would be a stronger fit for my personality type.
So for those of you who you currently are or who have been BDR managers what was your experience like? Approximate OTE? What are you doing now in your career?
Thanks in advance for your responses!
