Exclusive Interview with Mr. Andrew Pipeliner
Hi Andrew, we hope you are doing great. Let’s start from the beginning. How did you become a good salesperson?
Thank you for asking this question and I am flattered that you consider me as a good salesperson. [Laugh] Let me start from the beginning.
I worked for a big company in San Francisco as a sales representative. My daily job was contacting our potential customers and pitching our products over the phone. You know, standard cold calling.
I was quite happy with the job but their CRM didn’t fit me. The CRM was home-built. The problem that “home-built” CRM created is the following: A big part of my day, I had to input the data I collected into a seemingly redundant system. It was frustrating. I didn’t feel myself selling. I didn’t feel myself performing my best. I felt myself as a data clerk.
Was I good salesperson? No. I was not sure what to say to our customers because I was not able to find their crucial data. I was behind my sales activities almost every day. So, I quit.
After the couple of months, I was hired by another company. They use different CRM application and I truly felt in love with it. My sales-life changed completely. Today, I still work for this company. I am now more productive and that just because of their CRM.
I did not become a good salesperson just because of my sales characteristics but mainly because of the right CRM system I use to manage my data.
What do you like the most about the CRM system?
Its intuitive graphic representation of the sales process, or sales pipeline. It enables me, and my sales management, to be intimately involved with the sales process.
Is there a feature you particularly recommend to use?
This is a hard question. The most important feature for me is the sales pipeline visualization. Sales pipeline helps me to accurately forecast the state of my business, diagnose and pinpoint the specific problem affecting my sales performance. I would recommend this one.
Let’s talk about the show. How did you become a main character of Be a good salesperson show?
It’s a great story. I was in the shopping mall and saw this situation: A potential customer wanted to buy a laptop. He was arguing with the seller about the price. I knew that laptop because I have it too. I came closer to them and helped seller persuade the customer to purchase the laptop.
The director of Be a good salesperson show stood by. He was amazed with the way I did it and told me everything about the project. Later that day, I signed the contract. It was an awesome day. I was happy.
What do you like the most about the show?
Everything! [Laugh] Joe (second main character) is a very funny guy and it’s a pleasure to work with him. The film crew is awesome. I believe that more and more salespeople will be watching it.
What is the one thing you would like us to take away from this show?
Choosing the right CRM makes your sales-life better.
Andrew, thank you for your time. We wish you a great time during shooting the series.
Thank you for having me. Enjoy the series and see you next time.
