First Post - Are Business Development folks welcome here?

Discussion in 'Introductions and Welcomes' started by Coffee is for Closers, Feb 5, 2014.

  1. What's going on everyone. 6-year Account Executive here. Most of what I read on here are from Operations folks. I feel a lot of the same pain. Can I hang out with you guys??

    It is only Feb. You may be in operations by summer.
  4. Absolutely! As long as you aren't going to try to convince me that getting someone set up for Smart Pickup is a sale!

  5. RonBurgandy??????????

    RonBurgandy?????????? God is Great, beer is good , People are crazy.

    Attention everyone. We need someGOOD sales leads. In the past it was just about # of sales leads turned in. That didn't work well so now we need you to turn in GOOD sales leads!

    Everytime I turn in a sales lead the customer never hears from UPS so I am totally done

  8. Greenwing...just like with any other position within the company, some Account Execs are better than others.

    Also, it helps to know the AE for your area by name so if its a hot lead (actual competitor business) then it comes directly to us and doesnt go through our Inside Sales (telemarketer) group first.

    Welcome Coffee is for Closers.

    You're a upser so of course you're welcome here. If you have a sense of humor and don't take everything that is said too seriously you'll do fine.

    Inside Sales is the bottleneck ... to get credit submit it through the normal process but then also give it directly to the AE.
  11. Thanks Cheryl, glad to be here.

    We just had a pretty nice account close and started doing daily PU on Monday. 80-140 pieces a day.

    Nice win.
  13. I like it! Here's hoping they pay their invoices! :-)

    I have one in week 11 of volume check, and they are already suspended. I hope I still get the points for that lead.

    Welcome! Glad to have you around. I like being exposed to different parts of the company.

    You said you feel many of the same pains as those in operations. How so?
