Proactive Prospecting (Should You Be Doing Your Own Lead Gen?) With Tibor Shanto

Tibor Shanto comes on the Salesman Podcast to discuss the concept of proactive prospecting and if in the internet age, with marketing aligning closer with sales every day, salespeople should be doing their own lead generation.









Proactive Prospecting

The show is kicked off with Tibor explaining that any leads that come in from marketing, that are legitimately qualified should be seen as a bonus rather than the norm.

“Things become easier if you’re the first or second one in” –  Tibor Shanto

Tibor then shares that he thinks most salespeople perhaps play it a little safe in the way that they prospect.

“There should be an expectation that we’re going to practice [sales skills] everyday” Tibor Shanto

The show is wrapped up with the guys diving into sales habits and how they’re often the thing that separates the A from the B players within a sales team.
