    Episode 93: "The Best of All Sales Tactics: Transparency"

    Every sales professional is on the hunt for sales tactics that close deals, but most don’t even have transparency on their short list. My guest on this episode of #SellingWithSocial is an award-winning sales leader.

    An Interview with Todd Caponi: The Transparency Sale

    Sales is just as much science as art, and Caponi is devoted to the ‘geeky side’ of sales, as he calls it. A leader with more than 20 years of hands-on sales experience across sales training, sales enablement, and executive roles (most recently as CRO of PowerReviews), Todd’s focus includes bringing transparency to the sales process, boosting deal size, and improving relationships. And now he’s turning his sales passions to writing a soon-to-be-released book based on what he calls “The Transparency Sale”

    Episode 221: "The Transparency Sale with Todd Caponi"

    The Challenger Sale taught us to change our approach due to the preponderance of information about our products and services available to buyers before they ever talk to you, the seller. Today, we need to add "feedback" to the list, as buyers have easy access to our pros AND CONS like never before. Sellers need to be on top of what buyers are saying about them. Now there is a need to add transparency sale processes.

    Episode 8: "Advancing Your Career by Taking Risks"

    In this episode, Todd talks about how he realized his passion for sales was in teaching. He took a risk by venturing out on his own and buying a sales training business. His thirst for learning and passion for understanding buyer behavior continues to define his success
