Another way to find a good SDR is to build a solid network you can access anytime. A direct inquiry usually does not hurt if you have good contacts with SDRs themselves, managers, CEOs, and more.
You can ask for recommendations from people you suspect know a good SDR, or you ask for SDRs from your own network.According to Forbes
, this method can save up to 92% of your time.
Gold mine? Not quite.
Building up a network with people, as just mentioned, requires time and communicative skills.
It can take months or even years to build up a good network.
However, not everyone has the best SDRs in their network or contacts of managers or CEOs who can immediately tell you if they know good SDRs. As in the offline world, relationships need to be built and maintained.A LinkedIn research piece
discovered that about 49% of participants on the website said they didn't have enough time to network.
So if you have been looking for SDRs for a while and your network, offline or online, doesn't give you much in the way of suitable SDRs, then this method is not the best.
