HubSpot Spring Training: Building Sales Fundamentals
Second, in this post that circles back around about some HubSpot fundamentals, Dan uses his love of Baseball to show that sales success can come from being firm on the basics and discusses two key elements, equipment and approach. After all, spring training in baseball is for working on fundamentals: basic skills and repetitions needed for success throughout the season – from practicing a swing, to fielding ground balls, to locating fastballs. While success is measured through statistics, wins, and championships, it is built on fundamentals. Just like baseball, sales is also built on fundamentals.
