If end of quarter made you feel like this guy who got absolutely smoked by a security guard while proposing at a Los Angeles Dodgers game, we’ll help get your next quarter off to a better start today.

(Check out Jason Smith’s LinkedIn article on what it takes to do just that here.) 

So in today’s installment of  Coffee & Compete   we’re going to share a couple resources for you to take Competitive Enablement to the next level in Q2 and beyond!

How do I get more of my reps at or above quota?

➕ How do I prove the ROI of my efforts in the short term? ➕

How do I get organizational alignment on our competitive strategy?

These are the four biggest questions Reputation’s Chief Revenue Officer Scott Barmer, and revenue leaders around the world, are asking themselves in 2023. 

The short answer to each of these questions is Competitive Enablement. That’s because…

So how can you show your revenue leaders that you’re listening to their concerns, working to solve them, and then prove it all beyond a reasonable doubt?

We’ll walk you through how to:

  1. Understand what matters to your revenue leaders today

CSMs On What the Best CE Programs Have in Common

They’ve worked with literally hundreds of compete programs.

At the enterprise, at startups, SMEs, Customer Success Managers Sophie Baker and Honanmi Nawamura have seen it all. 

They turned out to be excellent podcast guests as well! 

Honami and Sophie joined the Competitive Enablement Show this week to share their advice for compete programs looking to increase adoption.

Running a competitive confidence survey is a good place to start. And for one compete program Honami worked with in the past, it was a good place for a restart too. 

Staff turnover, low engagement by reps, weak buy-in from the execs — this company’s competitive enablement program was at a critical juncture. Then…

“We ran a competitive confidence survey and it really helped us to identify key themes of the type of content folks needed where we didn’t have it yet. Over the course of six months, they were able to double their adoption rate.”

A Competitive Confidence Survey is just one of the arrows in your competitive quiver. 

Add a few more arrows to your arsenal by listening, watching or reading the latest episode of the Competitive Enablement Show.
