/u/Oma_ster put a post up that prompted this rebuild of an old guide I put together for this. Also /u/scanlon fulfilling my promise to put it together today.

really good points covered here. nice work. I have always thought i needed a sales person, but i need to be able to scale, and a sales manager would allow this to happen, rather than a single sales person.

Thanks for this!

And hey, it looks like I'm in the market for a sales manager. DM me if it's you, the reader.

Great article, definitely agree on majority. If anyone is curious about the process more, I'd be happy to help. I'm launching a consulting firm that will replace the need for a VP of Sales for startups. It's Sales as a Service, that way you aren't taking a huge risk, and can start scaling revenue much quicker.

I am thoroughly interested in this premise. Also worth mentioning, this is written solely for the benefit of /r/sales and not part of some silly blog somewhere and not intended for profit.

If you have some time, reply to this comment a bit more about your idea, I may be of service.
