Interviewing for a BDR Manager for SMB, tips?

Hello fellow Sales Savages,


I have an interview coming up soon to be the BDR Manager for our SMB biz dev team.


I've been with the org for about 2.5 years working on both enterprise and client side teams.


SMB traditionally has a much larger target list than enterprise so I would imagine cadence building will be a key to success. What tips do you all have for the interview process and for working in the SMB space as a whole?


Thanks in advance.

Call me what you want, just sign the damn contract
Process, repeatability, scalability are what they're looking for. Show you can lead and put a system in place.
