Don’t Believe Your Own Marketing (Too Much)
Sophisticated product marketing teams provide personas and typical pain points as a starting point for sales conversations.
They also love to arm sales teams with case studies.
On call recordings, I hear salespeople telling customers about the typical pain points and referencing the case studies.
As counter-culture as this may sound, the customer’s reaction is typically, “That’s not us.”
You are in front of a real person.
Ask them what they need.
