Every prospect is different, but I've found if you can get a prospect laughing it will put them in a good mood which always helps seal the deal

Definitely do a bit of introduction. They will forget 90% of your demo - they will not forget you if you do a good job!

Intros! Keep it brief though. If you were all in a room you’d shake hands and tell each other your names first thingΒ

Intro's for sure - I know some of my colleagues go into a bit of a spiel about how long they've been at the company etc but I just introduce myself and thank them for joining. Then I hop right into the agenda and ask them what they would like to cover in the call.

AE’s - here’s a very client-centred way to gather information about β€˜WHEN’ a decision needs to be made. Doing it this way will help you shorten sales cycles and build trust. Keep in mind - not every question I ask in this example is a perfect fit for every buyer, but should give you a good place
