I love me my enterprise sales, long and drawn out sometimes, but you get to really partner with your customers which is nice. I also don't mind each sale covering 25-40% of my yearly quota.

That's a good cover tbh. You must be working on high ticket projects

Definitely, the smallest pricing we can do for this service line is over 6 figures annually.ย

I love hunting and bagging ALL sales, but if I need to make the same effort on a $5M deal as I do to a $100k id rather whale huntย

Done both, but enterprise sales would take the cake. it just has that stereotypical look and feel of a 'proper' sales cycle and commission
