Business Development Representative

 

The Business Development Representative is responsible for the accomplishment of two main business objectives. Number one, growing profitable revenues and number two is growing market share. Both are accomplished by adding new logos to GT Landscape Solutions’ portfolio of clients.

 

 

The Business Development Representative’s Focus:

  • The BDR position is in the sales category of “Hunter”. As a hunter you are responsible to consistently prospect to identify “new” sales opportunity in the Construction Market.   Periodically you will be provided with some leads, bid invitations, and direct calls from our marketing efforts and existing relationships.  The lion share of your sales will be generated via your prospecting efforts and your success at negotiating contracts and aligning scopes of service.  These skill will be critical to the success of this role.
  • The BDR role requires you to be skillful in the following areas:
    • Creating targeted lists of General Contractors, Custom Home Builders, Landscape Architects, Architects, Engineers, Developers, Realtors, Mortgage Brokers, that contract for GTLS’s ideal project scopes.
      • Large Commercial Landscape Projects

    • Delivering the proposal in person, focusing your presentation on the issues and needs of the prospect and gaining agreement.

    • Overcoming objections and closing the sale.

 

 

Mindset:

  • You must possess the drive, confidence, discipline, and energy to prospect daily. This is the heart and soul of the BDR position.
  • The hunting position is challenging and equally exciting. Top performers have learned not to take rejection personally and look at it as just getting closer to landing the next deal. Selling is a numbers game, you must be rejection resistant and not let rejection erode your mental & emotional confidence, your focus or ability to think strategically.
  • A high level of energy is needed to execute the required level of weekly prospecting and to create, and maintain, a full pipeline of qualified sales opportunity.
  • Of course, top BDR’s enjoy winning. But, more importantly, they hate to lose.
  • The bottom line is, the sky’s the limit for you as a BDR, providing you are mentally tough.

 

 

Sales Strategies & Tactics Required for Success:

    • The ability to quickly establish rapport, credibility, and trust with other business professionals.
    • The business acumen to understand the issues that your decision makers face and the ability to ask relevant questions that probe in these areas. This will expose pain and need and will support your need to differentiate yourself personally as well as differentiate GTLS from your competition.
    • The ability to tell the GTLS story, articulate what makes GTLS unique in the market and avoid being viewed as a “commodity” and subject purely to being the lowest bid.
    • The effective use of CRM. You must live in CRM if you are to systematically make contact and follow up with suspects in a timely fashion. Using CRM will ensure you’re on top of your game.
  • You must be skillful at navigating the org chart within your prospect organizations. Especially where decisions are made within a committee, or between multiple people.
