Collin Cadmus is one of the few Sales Pros to generate $100 million in recurring revenue. Here’s how he did it!🤯💰🔥
Founder of Collin Cadmus, LLC, and the Collin Cadmus Podcast, Cadmus is a 5x sales leader. He provides revenue growth consulting and advising for B2B SaaS Founders and offers training courses and coaching for salespeople and leaders. But how’d he turn sharing his knowledge into a million-dollar business?
Collin Cadmus - How He Did It
Discover the right environment: Before making the switch to B2B SaaS, Cadmus worked as a retail manager at CVS. The role wasn’t for him and he felt stagnated. Instead of settling, he moved into an environment conducive to his growth – B2B SaaS Sales.
Create a wealth of experience: Starting in 2012, Cadmus spent 10 years in sales leadership, building and scaling SaaS Sales teams, developing himself into an expert in the field.
Know when to Pivot: During COVID, he resigned from his job, and with the knowledge he built up, went into advising sales professionals.
Never get comfortable: One of Cadmus’ biggest philosophies is to never become overly impressed with anything he’s accomplished. We see him live what he preaches when he launched his podcast to better position himself as an authority in sales consultations, shortly after launching Collin Cadmus, LLC.
Improve your negotiation skills lightning-fast with this secret method⚡️
Being a good negotiator is paramount to a salesperson’s success. And sometimes, not in the most obvious ways. For example, some may have the idea that being super aggressive or domineering is a key way to have success in a negotiation. In reality, it’s a lot more nuanced than that. Up your negotiation skills super fast with this advanced technique:
Choosing the ideal rationale
According to Harvard, there are two common types of rationales in business negotiations:
And disparagement rationales.
In the case of constraint rationales, the focus is a particular obstacle that might prevent a buyer from accepting an offer, such as price. A disparagement rationale is related to the buyer questioning the product being offered; for example, suggesting it isn’t worth the price tag. Studies have shown that sellers have been more susceptible to the constraint rationale during negotiations and that the disparagement rationale is typically less effective in discouraging sales professionals.
You may be wondering:” How does this help sales professionals? You’re supposed to be on our side!”
Hold your horses. See, this technique works both ways.
