Business Development with Scott Beebe

In this episode, Alay and Scott discuss: 

  • How business development has been affected by the pandemic. 
  • Business development versus sales versus marketing. 
  • Categories of business development. 


Key Takeaways: 

  • Every vision needs to be written down – if it isn’t written down, it doesn’t exist. 
  • Part of your vision needs to be your ideal client – this is based on 2 things: your best client ever, and the client you never want to work with again. 
  • Pricing is more important than many people expect – changing your mode of pricing may invite more business. 


Tweetable Moments:

  • “We do see this idea of sales or business development in the lens of those two, unique and conjoined systems of marketing and sales in that order.” —  Scott Beebe
  • “I just want to tell it to you straight – you’re in the sales business. Your role is as a salesperson, not a sleazy salesperson who doesn’t do what’s in the best interest of the client, but rather a consultative salesperson whose job it is to help the client solve their biggest challenge, which is why they’re talking to you. ” —  Alay Yajnik
  • “Who are your ideal clients, those ones you love to work with? And who are the ones that you don’t love to work with? Because once you’ve identified those, now you can begin to target your direction and your message to the people that those are best going to resonate.” —  Scott Beebe
