"That's a great question and one I'm not qualified to answer, but if you wanna hop on a call with my A.E he can answer it. How's next Tuesday at 2 for a quick Zoom"

This is what a smart and good SDR says. Most would probably answer "yes we can do that definitely man!" without knowing if they can lol

Yea when people start asking intense questions about a product I love going for the close at that point. The worst thing is answering a question wrong and looking like an idiot when you get that prospect to a meeting who expects certain features.
