In the early stages of a start-up, it’s tempting to keep hiring for your sales team. You might make the assumption that adding more heads and assigning more quota will lead to higher productivity.
But there’s a little more nuance to it than that. Every company is different, which means every company requires its own individualized model. In this episode, I give you the lowdown on deciding when and how to scale your sales team depending on your business. I’ll show you three concrete things to look at to decide whether or not to hire: your calendar, the velocity of deals coming down the pipeline, and your process for setting new hires up for success.
These questions can help you determine if it’s time to add to your sales team or if you should dig deeper for further analysis first. Join me as I demystify this complex and sometimes confusing process.
