What have you done to get that deal closed?

As a woman in sales with my target demographic in the construction industry, I have often had to get creative to hit my targets.


Unfortunately, I have put men as the lead "face" on big deals because I wanted to close. On a recent big opp, the CEO was sexist enough that I felt it necessary he perceived having a man in control of his account. This was 100% my account, and I did 95% of the work. However, I'll do whatever it takes to get that win. I did have to split the commission, but it was significant enough that it was worth it.ย 


On a lighter note, I may or may not have sent a recently divorced prospect a nude cleaning service with my business card "strategically placed" on the staff.


I *really* want to send one of these though : https://www.pinatagrams.com/

This is a 10 location business I have been working for 4 months now. I closed 3 last month and just closed another two today. I built value on the front end and Iโ€™m hoping the other 5 will close before...
Say congrats!
