OOH in Cohoot —
What Do We Call Ourselves?—Vendors bad? Operators good? Or just show me the cash!
Customer Relationships, Managed —Sales Teams struggles vs. effectiveness
Cohoot is the anonymous forum for media salespeople. Hundreds of sellers gather on Cohoot’s dedicated OOH channel to share inside info about advertisers and agencies.
Let’s dive in and discover the hottest topics from last week here…
What Do We Call Ourselves?
We have another philosophical discussion started by a Cohort. “Too soon for some 2020 OOH resolutions? I would start with banning the word ‘vendor’ across the board … a vendor is a dude selling hot dogs at Wrigley and inherently creates a transactional vibe. We should integrate ‘operator, partner, media owner,’ etc. It brings gravitas and elevates our role in the process. Go forth!” Thanks for the discussion, @Firecracker44. Full Thread Here>>>
Customer Relationships, Managed
Many sellers struggle with finding the right CRM. “Anyone have a recommendation for a cost-effective CRM platform that does not keep our sales team at their desk all day, but is effective and scalable? Asks Cohort @Task Meat. “We all know Salesforce is the gold standard, but for a smaller company like this one, we found it is way too robust and cumbersome. We have been dabbling with Nutshell on and off as well as Hubspot, but they are not exactly what we are looking for.” Check the thread for other CRM suggestions from sales teams. Full Thread Here>>>
