What is this? The Funding Letter is an exclusive new-financing newsletter, built for salespeople, by salespeople. Daily Letters are sent directly to your inbox hours before every other announcement newsletter, so you’re tipped off before your competitors’ outreach emails flood your decision-maker’s inbox.
Each email is structured to focus on the details that matter most to you. No journalism jargon, no marketing copy. Just the information you need to start prospecting immediately.
Good Morning! This edition of The Funding Letter comes to you from our headquarters in New York City.
Hit the Gong 🎉
Happy December! With the holiday season upon us and Q4 ending quickly, starting new conversations and closing deals can get more and more difficult; the dreaded “we’re swamped, let’s reconnect in the new year” response is all too familiar to us, leading to missed quotas and unmet goals.
We want to hear from you: what tactics do your teams use to push through these timing objections and close out the year with success?
