How To Instantly Fill Your Sales Funnel With “Sales Qualified Leads” Without Sending A Cold Email Or Making a Cold Call…Ever!

Attention ATDC B2B SaaS Founders, Marketers, Sales, and Growth Professionals:

In this presentation, I’m going to show you how to instantly (ok almost instantly…) fill your sales funnel with sales qualified leads without sending a cold email or making cold calls. It doesn’t require spending a fortune on ads or hoping and praying that your content ranks either. If you come to the presentation and stay to the end, I’ll show you a behind the scenes look at my systems and how I’ve been able to generate 450+ marketing qualified leads and 20+ sales qualified leads in less than 14 days using these exact tactics. We’ll also looks at some of the results a few of my clients are seeing in their own funnels. Come ready to learn a lot, be prepared to take notes, and be prepared to take action in your own business after.

    Most technology startups fail. Why? They start executing before they have a sound business model. What about you? Have you discovered a scalable and profitable business model yet?

    Customer Discovery Lab is a Customer Discovery Bootcamp designed for entrepreneurs. Customer Discovery Lab uses a combination of teaching methodologies from Customer Discovery (get out of the building), Lean Startup (iterative loop of experimentation), Startup Engineering (disprove your assumptions) and the Business Model Canvas to uncover your compelling business model.

    After this program, you will have identified the core of your business model - your customer segment and value proposition. Or you may discover there isn't one. And that's OK too. It's better to find out now than after spending years and a fortune only to find out you were wrong.

    How does it work?

    1. Multi-week intensive program. You should commit to attend every week.
    2. Each week, make assumptions about what needs to be true about your business model to succeed.
    3. Design tests to disprove each assumptions.
    4. Collect data and interpret the results.
    5. Update your business model canvas based on what you have learned.
    6. Present your findings to the teaching team and get thoroughly thrashed.
    7. Repeat.

    You will be expected to talk to at least 10 potential customers each week.
