Hi everyone,
I'm the sales manager for a software company in Florida. We build and sell software that helps RV dealerships grow.

Finding new sales hires has been very tough for us. We are building a powerful culture and finding cultural fits alone is tough. When we add on finding people who "get" inbound marketing and are willing to let go of old ways of selling...our search has become daunting to say the least.

We are about two months into implementing TAYA in our company and we have a long road ahead of us. So we need someone who gets it and is very adaptable.

So, do you know anyone with an extremely positive outlook, fun personality, and desire to grow who is looking for a sales job, and has the capacity and willingness to adapt Impact... See More

I was inspired to ask this today because I was doing an interview and realized that there was one specific question I was really excited to ask.

It's unlocked a lot of great conversations for me lately and so I was looking forward to see where it would lead.

Borrowed from Liz Moorehead 's Content Compass, it's "why are they asking this question or researching this topic now?"

What are some of your favorite questions to ask when interviewing someone?

You can be the best virtual salesperson ever but if you get on a video call with a prospect and they refuse to turn on their camera, what do you do? You can't see their facial expressions or even know for sure if they're listening! How do you respond?

I saw this clip from Marcus Sheridan in his talk as I was reviewing content for our Virtual Selling Summit next week and wow did I feel seen haha I've so been there! Check out this short 30-second clip and let me know how you'd respond:

I've been hearing about a lot of businesses that once things start to open up post-pandemic, are transitioning their business to fully-remote permanently or a hybrid working model.

What are you doing?

Right now our plan is to bring everyone back over the summer and re-evaluate a hybrid model for the fall. Would love to hear what you all are doing! See More
This has been discussed in prior threads, however, it's so interesting that YouTube continues to grow. The biggest contributors to this growth seem to be the increased viewership on TV platforms, which is a recently add behavior that can be tracked on YouTube's channel dashboard.

Lindsey Schmidt , Jason Linde , and Ali Parmelee what are your thoughts with the increased growth in paid performance on YouTube? Fad or future? See More

Good day all,

I was wondering how you go about carving out, blocking out, or blacking out time when you 100% need to focus on writing and writing alone.

This is something I've struggled with in the past so I was wondering how you've had success as fellow creators of content.

Onevery small thing I've been training myself to do, and set the expectation of, is that I will only be checking email at the top of the hour. We have other means of internal communication but I know those email notifications can sometimes pull me out of that writing groove that I like to get into.

What works for you? See More

Semrush put together this great compilation of YouTube statistics recently that I think anyone who is interested in video for themselves or their company needs to look at.

Here are some of the statistics that stood out to me: It’s estimated that by 2022, there will be 210 million viewers in the U.S., up from 192 million in 2018. In 2020, 60% of marketers said they would increase their marketing budget for YouTube. In 2020, 62% of YouTube users in the U.S. accessed the platform daily. While many of us know YouTube and video as a whole need to be part of our future planning, these statistics really seal the deal. What are your thoughts? Is there a statistic that stands out to you?

Hey all,

I posted this in Impact Elite but I wanted to get some feedback from other owners and CEO's on hiring a Web Developer for our company.

We are in the beginning stages of hiring a Web Developer for our company. This will be the first time hiring for this position and I wanted to see if I could get some feedback on best practices in ensuring we get great candidates and that we make a great hire.

Any help or feedback in this endeavor would be greatly appreciated.

Also, this position will be remote for us, so if you have anyone that you may know that would be a great fit, please share.

Read this article this morning from The Atlantic, it was a very interesting take on vacation, PTO, and the comparisons of American vs European work-life balance.

The article begins by diving into the 26% decrease in vacation and PTO requests through Zenefits (a popular HR platform) and why so many felt uncertain of their futures at organizations if they did take time off, not to mention the inability to actually go anywhere and do anything.

However, with vaccine rates increasing, many plan to take extended PTO and to begin more normaltraveling behaviors this summer.

Judge vaccinations as you will, this trend could have huge implications ahead for companies as their staff plan to take longer PTO at the same time. Are you planning and... See More
Good morning all,

What's something you've done recently that surprised you in a positive way?

For example, I recently began writing more frequently again. It's something I haven't done regularly and at scale for a while. I knew Ihave done it. I felt Icould do it. But it was still a great feeling to actually throw myself into it again and feel like I was producing good work at scale.

Kind of like an athlete coming back from an injury and there's those initial few moments where they're not sure how their healed injury is going to hold up.

What's yours? See More
