Deal Story

BigMeech closed Facebook for $139.6k

This was a quarantine deal (July 2020, per Sahil's request).


Facebook is a current customer but growing exponentially. I had to effectively double their contract. Facebook's procurement team must be former professional hostage negotiators (I think) because that was on par with Amazon for most painful negotiation process I have ever had to do.


Got it done and maintained my price point.

It is absurd. They basically show up like William Wallace and are ready for blood.

I don't understand why they feel the need to come at reps that way but they do. Congrats on your win!

Thank you! I think they are having their target margins raised due to the pandemic. The procurement rep I worked with on this actually got fired soon after, and I have to think it was because he was failing to meet his discount targets.ย

I donโ€™t understand discount targets....like should I artificially raise my price 10% so I can get you a 15% discount ?
