This would definitely depend on the maturity of the company itself, for example, a pre-seed company would have different needs than Series B or series D. The best thing to do at the start is to capture the baseline KPIs and objectives, clarify the goals, and then work backward on how to achiev......Read More

If you're banking that your sales teams will use your materials then you ask them first! Start with the top 2-3 sales reps or a sales manager who has a low-down on the biggest objections and reasons why deals aren't closing. Prioritize the top objections and construct your battlecard.

I never thought of checking competitions as immoral or "scammy". I would go and say that I do like to play detective and spy on the best competitors but that's simply called gathering intel.

Oof. I feel seen. If you're in an early-stage startup or if your department is usually quite small then you will have to rely on tools.
