Lead Nurturing

After 50+ Sales Connect Calls, Here are 10 Things I Learned About Being Effective.

By: Shandia Drummond May 22nd, 2018

Have you ever felt uncomfortable getting on the phone and talking with someone? How about setting the tone as the first point of contact for the sales process, and running connect calls with potential leads? When first joining the IMPACT Sales team, the connect call was always a huge hurdle I felt I would never be able to get over.

I needed to find a repeatable call structure that I could use to truly qualify prospects and set our team up for good conversations.

You Can't Offer Subscriptions on Medium Anymore; What We've Learned from Medium's Latest Pivot

By: Liz Murphy May 21st, 2018

Chris Faraone, founder of the Boston Institute for Nonprofit Journalism, was not happy with Medium last week, after they rolled out yet another change to how the publishing platform functions and enables their publishing partners. Those organizations who had their own independent subscription paywalls on a Medium publication they had created -- like BINJ -- were notified on Friday, April 27, they would be canceled on May 7. After that date, readers with subscriptions to those publications would lose them as they came up for renewal.  (Of note, affected publishers were welcome to ask for an extension, if they needed more time to handle the news that they were going to be losing a revenue stream.) As Faraone was quick to point out, this wasn't a small change, like the sunsetting of a particular feature. Instead, Medium was gutting a critical source of funding.
