About How to Get a Meeting With Anyone

What if that impossible-to-reach person wasn’t so impossible to reach after all? Hall-of-fame-nominated marketer and Wall Street Journal cartoonist Stu Heinecke discovered that he could get past traditional gatekeepers and reach those elusive executives by thinking outside the box and using personalized approaches that he calls “contact campaigns.” Including presidents, a prime minister, celebrities, countless CEOs, and even the Danish model that later became his wife, Heinecke found that getting meetings with previously unreachable people was easier than ever. In this podcast, Heinecke asks a simple question to each of his guests: “When you absolutely must break through to someone of great importance, someone who’s nearly impossible to reach, how do you do it?” You’ll hear strategies and tactics from Heinecke and his guests that have resulted in response rates as high as 100%, ROI in the tens, even thousands of percent, and costs-per-contact ranging from $0 to $10,000. You’ll also learn plenty of tips on how to determine your targets, how to develop pitches, and how to gain allies in your contact’s circle of influence. This podcast should be required listening for every enterprise sales team.

    How many sales have you closed after first contact?

    While getting the first meeting is the most crucial part of the process on any sale, nearly as relevant is the ability to continue adding value to potential clients until the sale is finished.

    In this episode, I sat down with Tom Williams, Co-Founder and CEO of Input.io, to talk about how Deal Room is an exceptional tool in ongoing, efficient sharing of ideas between the buyer and seller.  

    Transparency and process are key in conversion.  Imagine a digital space where callaboration is at the touch of a button.

    A.I. is here.

    At its current trajectory, it’s only a matter of time before artificial intelligence has a significant impact on the sales world. Whether you think this technology is on the cusp of a major breakthrough or will still require years of development before it’s practical, it’s something salespeople should be paying attention to.

    In this episode John Barrows, CEO of JBarrows Sales Training, tells us  about his experience with A.I. and what he sees coming in the next five years. John takes us through some of the hype surround A.I. and the “content versus context approach” that separates people from machines.

    The hardest part of sales has become the “getting to engagement” part.

    How do we get through the big walls others have put up in order to engage with them?

    In this episode I chat with Trish Bertuzzi, CEO of The Bridge Group, Inc., Author of "The Sales Development Playbook," and Inside Sales Evangelist about perseverance and how it can be programmed into the culture of a company.

    Trish hopes to tell you a story.  How are you grafting parts of your story into every interaction with the clients who can change the scale of your business?

    There is an aspect of perseverance that is just sheer force. It needs to be there, ready to go when it's called for. Just as important is the ability to position yourself advantageously for when perseverance is necessary.

    For this episode I sat down with Tibor Shanto, Chief Sales Officer at Renbor Sales Solutions Inc., to talk about how we prepare well to persevere.

    Constantly pursuing a client in an effort to add value to their company requires a concerted effort, accompanied by the decision to invest time and plan for positional success.

    Persevering is about the long game.  

    When you’re trying to break into a new account, they don’t necessarily want to talk to you because they don’t know who you are, but you know you can help them.  Unless you’re persistent you will get get stopped in your tracks.

    On this episode I had some time with Mark Hunter - Author of High Profit Selling and HIgh Profit Prospecting, President of The Sales Hunter, and one of the original co-founders of the Outbound Conference - to discuss how we and the people around us contribute to the ability to persevere.

    Sales it not a solo activity; it’s a team sport.  And if we play on a team, it’s amazing how much better we’ll be.

    Diligence in contact marketing can feel like you’re banging your head against a wall.  

    Believing that persistence means doing the same thing over and over again and expecting something different to happen is similar.

    In this episode I got to chat with Mark Babbitt, CEO of WorqIQ and YouTern and author of A World Gone Social about how he and his team perceive persistence.

    Give your head a break and think about how creative persistence might help you break through to potential clients and change your level of success.

    It would be easy to run to stock card place and have your logo and information printed. Being creative and innovative with your business card reflects a level of attention you show to the rest of your business.

    Jason Hagemeister has one such card.  SD at YYoga, Jason and his wife have developed a “ma and pa” yoga studio into an expanding brand, thanks at least in part to the use of unorthodox business cards. 

    In this episode I talk with Jason about how others have reacted to his unique business card and the opportunities it has created as part of a larger marketing strategy.

    As contact marketers, you should know there are some very interesting renditions of A.I. for use in sales right now.

    What if you had access to a search engine that could find every single person and account you need to sell to instantly? Instead of being able to reach twenty potential customers per day, you could reach thousands.

    That’s the goal of the creators of Seamless, an A.I. built by salespeople and marketers for salespeople and marketers.

    In this episode we spoke with Brandon Bornancin, CEO and founder of Seamless AI, about how Seamless was created and the ways it can be used to leverage information to help you create connections with our most important prospects.

    There are a few people who can transform your career, business and life.

    How well do you know them?

    We all know we need to do research and know the people we’re reaching out to.

    If we’re reaching out to people we believe could exponentially change the scale of our business, speaking to them relevantly requires us to how we fit into their world.

    Our success dwindles when we do not walk into a meeting with knowledge on our side.  Knowing need allows us to determine what value we may provide to them.

    David Henzel is the entrepreneur behind the service Taskdrive, and he knows what it takes to learn about the people with whom we do business.

    In addition to an efficient and robust networking process, David has augmented a team of researchers that are able to achieve results far more impactful than what we can do alone.

    The team and playbook do the leg work of researching so that you can show up having done your homework and save precious time.

    The scope of how data can be collected and leveraged blows the mind.  The possibilities are endless and we’ve barely scratched the surface.

    Collection is one thing, the notion of sifting through data to try and locate ideal consumers or accounts can be even more daunting.

    What if you had someone who could do this for you?

    Zach Barney knows what it’s like to receive a well timed and profound gift.

    Throwing out a joke hashtag on a random social media site will usually get you some likes and shares, but every now and then someone goes above and beyond by responding in an unexpected way.

    When Zach jokingly attributed his stomach woes and headache to Christmas treats and stress in a post, Mikey atDocsend was listening.  The next day Zach received a bag full of groceries via instacart, which he shared with the whole office.

    What have you done that shows your potential clients that you are paying attention?  It’s easy to send random gifts to people with whom you hope to have a meeting or to those who have done business with you in the past.

    Going above and beyond means you need to be paying attention well and responding in ways that shows this attention to detail.  It’s not about the gift itself, but about how this gift reflects your knowledge of its recipient.

    Amanda Harkness connects with people.  It’s a talent, but it’s more than that - it’s a skill.

    Wading through the seemingly endless contacts to find potential relationships can be deadening when it comes to being personable.  It’s easy to become disingenuous, but this is becoming even more crucial in a sales climate saturated with would be suitors.

    Amanda believes that the right amount of persistence combined with a strategic and personal approach when approaching other salespersons can be the recipe for getting meetings, the most important step in having success with larger companies.

    Amanda wants you to think about the value you can bring to the individuals with whom you do business.  To hear more about Brendan’s methods on organization, strategy, and attitude check out this episode of How To Get A Meeting With Anyone.

    It’s easy to give up, people do it all of the time.  But being able to keep at it after being ignored time and time again?  That is something special, and it leads to results.

    Brendan Alan Barrett is a persistence specialist.  He believes in the product that he’s selling and he knows when the right message gets in front of the right person, they will do business with him.  So he makes phone calls, sends emails, leaves voicemails, reaches out on social media, and has even been known to show up at a company’s front door. He does this all in the name of good old fashioned persistence.

    Occasionally he’ll get some four letter words tossed his way or continue to be ignored, but he takes that as a challenge.  He just hasn’t found a creative way to reach that person… yet.

    Brendan believes if you haven’t reached out to someone at least 7 times, you probably don’t really exist to them yet.  He doesn’t take lack of responses personally because people are busy! How could he take the rejection as a reflection on him when they don’t even know him?  He keeps it light.

    Brendan has a ton of tips on how you can develop your muscle for persistence.  To hear more about Brendan’s methods on organization, strategy, and attitude check out this episode of How To Get A Meeting With Anyone.

    How do you spark a conversation with a c-suite executive? Creativity … and coffee.

    Joining us today on our podcast is Matt Reuter, Manager of Sales Development at Masergy. Recently, he received an unsolicited gift of coffee in the mail.

    He set that gift on his desk as a reminder of what what he wants to see in a new hire … after he brought it up to the CMO’s office and set it on their desk.  “This is what we need to be teaching all our sales reps to do.”

    How did an unsolicited gift of coffee up on the CMO’s desk, and why was this so effective?

    Be honest: When someone hands you a business card, you put the number in your phone and then throw it away.

    In the age of LinkedIn, blogs, and websites, the business card has all but gone the way of the rolodex, or the dial up modem.

    We get handfuls of them at conferences, trade shows, or networking events. They go into our bags, or briefcases, and more often than not, they stay there until we clean out our bags.

    Poul Nielsen has a different kind of business card.

    If you google “Most amazing business cards” odds are it won’t take you long to run across Poul’s card.

    Poul owns a personal training business, and his business card is made of rubber. At first glance, the card is unreadable.

    It’s not until you stretch the card out that you can read what it says. His name, title, and contact information.

    His card is literally have you exercise in order to read the details.

    Most business cards are just a simple exchange of information. You give them your number, they give you theirs.

    Poul’s is a perfect example of thinking outside of the box, and how a business card can really be a metaphor for the value that you can offer to a potential client.

    How are you setting yourself apart?

    What if a cupcake were the key to getting in front of the prospect you’ve been chasing?

    My friend Rick Tobin tells a fantastic story about a prospect that he was having a particularly hard time getting in front of.

    Rick heard that it was this client’s birthday, so he did something simple.

    He went to a local grocery store, bought a box of cupcakes, personalized them, and delivered them to the prospect’s office, wishing him a happy birthday.

    The prospect invited him in, and they had a great chat, which has led to a relationship that has generated well over $100,000 in commissions so far.

    Why was this such a success?

    Because it humanized Rick.

    It showed the client that Rick was more than someone looking for a deal. He was simply a human, wishing another human a happy birthday.

    Something seemingly trivial, when acknowledged, can wind up being not only a conversation starter, but also a relationship builder as well.

    Being creative with showing your humanity can also cause a client to simply say, “I like the way you think.”

    And when the client likes the way you think, you’ve opened the door to relationship that could last for years.

    How are you showcasing your humanity?

    Looking to break up your lead generation routine?

    Today we interview Tyler Lessard of Vidyard about the power of video not only to tell your story but to add value to customers.

    Though video is not a solution for a lack of research or poor messaging, it is a unique, customer-centric way to connect with potential buyers on a human level.

    And it works!  According to Tyler Vidyard has seen a 5% increase in their open rate for initial contacts. He share with us some concrete strategies from subject lines to visual cues and a little competition invite to boot.

    Still not convinced?  Too nervous to try? Tyler’s advice is “try it anyway!” You can’t go wrong being yourself.

    Make a brand for yourself.

    It’s easy to point out a bad business card: bland fonts, forgettable design, and overblown titles. Even in a world where personal cards don’t get much use, these end up in the slush pile when a few changes could have made them stand out.

    Fortunately, we had Chris Hirsch, Executive Creative Director at lg2, on the show to tell us how to personalize our business cards to make them extensions of not only what we do, but who we are.

    Sharpen your storytelling.

    Too often we want the viral knockout—the thing that’ll put us in contact with millions straight away.

    But the best way to grow your brand is to treat your posts like micro-blogs and get to the heart of what people care about: the story you’re telling.

    Luckily, we sat down with Dennis Brown, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective LinkedIn Users, to set us straight on how to generate a consistent LinkedIn following through storytelling.

    How many names  of graphic designers can you rattle off? Let’s take it up a notch: how many names of legendary business card designers do you know? My guess is, not many. But you probably already know Swiss designer Remo Caminada, or at least his handiwork.

    When you Google “coolest business cards in the world,” you’ll find a plethora of different lists. But every list you find will include Remo’s business card he created for a dentist. This card doesn’t just provide contact info -- it’s transcended the typical business card and become an engagement device.

    Within the first one or two cards the dentist handed out, she had a new client. And so did Remo -- Calls started coming in all over the world for his design. Canada, Pakistan, the list goes on. So why do we all love this card so much?

    Listen in to hear how Remo, founder of design company Mokum, created not just a business card, but a famous, viral, and masterful connection piece, that’s garnering his clients new business all across the world.

    John Ruhlin, author of Giftology, uses radical generosity in gift giving to reach clients in a personal way. Through the art of gift giving without expectation of reciprocation, rewards and benefits of personal and professional relationships can be enjoyed. This can lead to expansion of client base and business.

    Contact marketing is an important piece of any business, but we’ve been doing it wrong. It’s time to ditch the marketing ploys and the idea that gifts can only be attached to a certain event. Giving wholeheartedly for no reason other than valuing someone’s relationship and time speaks volumes and solidifies relationships in a whole new way.
