Talk to Close Experts

Talk to mentors from these amazing companies

This is by far my favorite sales CRM. But mostly because it stays out of your way. It doesn't have feature bloat, and lends itself very well towards custom process building by integrating it with other tools, either via API, or Zapier (well, that's also API, but you get the point :).

I'm familiar with although I haven't used it as extensively. I provided an audit of how a B2B SaaS company could optimise their processes and workflows to increase pipeline velocity. Very impressed with what I saw.

Close is great for a specific use case. If you're looking for something simple, for a small sales team, and you don't want to get bogged down in all the bells and whistles then Close might be for you. Personal I find it limiting once you have more than 2 people selling or if you want to add automation of any kind, plus the reporting must be exported. All in all I know a lot of people very happy with Close and I work with it often with clients.

Frequently asked questions

Three choices:

  • Skype
  • Zoom
  • Google Hangouts

Mentors and mentees are able to set their communication tools in their profile settings.

It is a good idea to connect with the other person once the session is accepted and the details are given. This ensures that the correct details were given and when it is time to start, you can start on time.

Here are some tips on how to get the maximum bang for your time on growth mentor calls.

  • Come into this with realistic expectations. They’re mentors, not magicians.
  • Ask your mentor if they’d be cool with you recording your screen with Loom
  • Give contextual information to help paint the picture of your current situation.
  • Growth mentors will be asking you lots of questions, answer them as honest as possible.
  • Don’t be afraid to push the boundaries of question asking. Be inquisitive. Stories are gold.
  • Don’t feel pressure, just relax. There’s no right/wrong way to do this. Avoid binary thinking.
  • Try to form mental patterns, especially if you speak with multiple mentors. Pay attention to metadata.
  • Embrace alternative views. Ask the mentors to play devil’s advocate and challenge your assumptions.
  • Be friendly and authentic. If you’re likable, the mentors will be your biggest supporters (even after the call is over).

Yup! Many of the mentors offer monthly coaching packages for members who want to really dive deep into a specific area.

Each mentor creates their own package so what they offer and the price vary from mentor to mentor. You can find their coaching info at the top of their profile.
