What our participants are saying

What I really learned is that sales is first and foremost a human process. Market Me illuminated each phase of the sales funnel so efficiently and concretely that we could immediately translate the concepts and tools into practice.

Ruslan Podgaetskiy (Davai Dumplings)

My top takeaway from Market Me is to go back to your foundations and start from there. As a starting entrepreneur you have so much going on at the same time, that after a while it’s good to return to the basics and properly define the Why of your business. This helps to establish clear goals and focus.

Market Me taught us how to highlight why our platform is the ideal solution, and also how to attract their interest in talking to us in the first place. We’ve seen our turnover double compared to last year.”

1. KICKOFF. This is the moment when we all get to know each other for the first time: teachers, organisers, and participants, and YOU!

2. SALES MOTIVATION & PRE-SALES. Founder issues and sales are two of the most common problems in startups, so we are here to help. We will help you find the right mindset for you and your team to do effective sales. In the afternoon, we'll give you concrete tools to structure your current pre-sales.

3. SALES ORGANISATION & DEAL CLOSING. We do a "scale your sales" scan and then look at your sales strategy and plan. Afterwards, we continue with "from promise to euro", where we show you how to turn promises into money in your account.

4. SALES PITCHING & AFTER-SALES. Time to fine-tune your sales pitch. In the afternoon, you will learn how to turn your customers into ambassadors (after-sales).

5. SCALE YOUR SALES & TERMS & CONDITIONS. There are two tracks to choose from. We will wrap up this session with an important section on general conditions and the legal framework of sales.

a. Sales Process & Methodology (for startups)

b. Sales Leadership & Team (for scalers)

6. RETURN VISIT. 6 weeks after the “scale your sales” session, we schedule return visit to check up on your progress and give you more advice.

7. FOLLOW-UP. We will review your efforts after 6 & 12 months to make sure you’re still on your path to success.
