Cold calls, cold email, and direct messages are overused. There is no incentive for a buyer to respond anymore, so sellers have to do follow up.
That's not how relationships should start.
There has never really been a safe place for sales people to pitch someone out of the blue, and have it be welcomed. That ends today.
The first fall when school started, I made most of my friends by going to over their houses, and we would have fires. It's bring everyone together. In some cases, the whole neighborhood or town would come.
The fire was a centerpiece that brought us all together. It was a common shared experience. I want to do the same thing for sales.
Today, I'm proud to announce Request for Meeting is now called Pitchfire.
We're rebranding the company to Pitchfire! We're changing our name, and evolving the product.
This is a place where buyers and sellers can come together, without the coldness of outreach.
We'll be migrating existing Request for Meeting users over to Pitchfire in the next few weeks. If you want be part this new safe place for buyers and sellers to come together, you can get on our waitlist.
