Deal Story

DaveGreen closed a deal for $45k to the CEO department

Closed this one last Friday! Two deals in one week baby! Got me over my quota for Q2, let's go!


Closed this deal with the CEO of a really young start-up - they've just closed their first round of funding themselves, so exciting times ahead for them. And hopefully a good relationship with lots of cross- and upsells to come.

Thanks! I actually took a very good look at my previous deals that closed this Q and took sold on that problem from the first messaging. This one actually took just one LI message.

Think the timing also really helped - they've just closed a round of funding and are looking to scale. Two days after the conversation I saw the announcement and just shot him a quick note to congratulate and the deal was closed two days after. Took a week to close in total :)

It is! You get to speak with so many interesting founders / CEOs with brilliant ideas and visions.Β 

I just -and pls don't hate me- founded a recruiting firm, helping startups find sales talent. I've built some sales teams at different startups at different stages so felt like I had a competitive edge over any other average Joe recruiter.

chubbspeterson closed a deal for $10.7k to the CEO department
My boss had me told to hold off on working this opportunity, because apparently there was some bad blood between someone on their CEO, and our CEO.... Their CEO eventually got ousted, and was replaced ...
Say congrats!
