On the latest episode of Carry The Water, Ryan talks about the variety of ideas he’s tried from reinventing his financial services role to writing ebooks on how to roll sushi.

#09: Marcus Murphy - What is Sales DNA?

Marcus Murphy has worked in sales and account management roles for a variety of different organizations from Enterprise Rent-A-Car to Yelp. Now as the Director of Sales at Digital Marketer, Marcus has come to value the concept of an organization’s “Sales DNA” when building teams. Marcus argues that every company has a direction and culture deeply rooted in its foundations, and the corresponding sales team needs to fit that mold in order to scale. For example, a team of cut throat closers may not align well with a company that values customer’s buying process and research. That doesn’t mean the team wouldn’t make a ton of money in the short term - they probably would. However, long term retention, customer happiness, etc would surely suffer. Marcus shares experiences that range from social selling to selling rental cars to drug dealers.
