How To Close HUGE Accounts With Tom Searcy

Tom Searcy joins Will on this episode of the Salesman Podcast to discuss how to close those BIG accounts that everyone has in their industry.







Close The HUGE Accounts

The show is kicked off with Tom explaining the benefits of going after the big accounts VS spending time trying to close more, smaller ones.

“When you land the larger accounts it’s better for you, it’s better for your company. I gotta tell you, nothing tastes better than taking a big deal away from one of your competitors.” – Tom Searcy

The show is wrapped up with Tom explaining the concept behind mastermind groups and their importance as a tool to accelerate growth both in and outside of the world of sales.

“The lower level people used to have authority and power in making small decisions to buy […] a decade ago that was slowly taken away from them.” – Tom Searcy

  • The benefits of closing bigger accounts
  • What size deals you should be aiming for
  • The difference between prospecting management and the C-suite
  • Mastermind groups for sales professionals
