Best states to snag for your territory and why? (Besides CA, WA, NY)

let's get into: Hottest states, worst states, sleeper states, up and coming states.....Β 

could be helpful as the job market continues to be hot and everyone is moving around πŸ‘€ ✌🏻

Out of curiosity why removing CA, WA, NY? Just too obvious for SaaS sales?

Exactly - we all know those are money. So hoping to provide the community with more ideas and to see opportunity in other states outside of those listed. There’s so many experiences people have had in selling to different states that I’m sure people need to hear as they breakdown their territory. Catching my drift here or am I speaking nonsense? Hahah

If you have anything where you're digitalizing an industry (ex: construction software such as ProCore or B2B ecommerce) that hasn't really done that kind of thing, the Midwest is a phenomenal market. Ohio in particular never gets enough territory love. And other parts of the country, I would take Florida.

Excellent - insight! Ohio is a state I’ve never thought about. I keep hearing strong buzz about Florida because they have money + relaxed. Any states that look good, but haven’t been great in your case?

In my current territory some observations: Utah has a big tech scene. Michigan has a big transportation/manufacturing scene.Β
