Sales Advice For HR Businesses – With Rana Kordahi

It’s hard to suddenly start selling your consulting services or software when you’ve come from a corporate HR background. That’s why I’ve turned to sales expert, Rana Kordahi, for some sales advice for HR businesses.

Rana shared her sales advice for HR businesses, including:

  • If Rana were starting out as a new HR consultant or a new HR tech startup, what would be her plan of attack to get new employer clients?
  • Rana’s advice on how to actually approach a potential client that you’ve found online on LinkedIn?
  • Thoughts on the best way for a consultant or startup founder to approach their former employers to get them as a client.
  • If a consultant or startup founder gets a meeting with a potential new client, how to run the meeting.
  • If the initial meeting with a potential new client goes well – they often then ask for a proposal. Rana’s advice.
  • After a consultant has a very positive initial discussion with clients and receiving positive feedback, they don’t come back with an actual work assignment. Rana’s advice.
  • Rana’s tips on interesting people, websites, tools, podcasts, or books that HR businesses should check out to grow faster.

An Exciting HR Software Company To Watch: Adepto

I recently had an in-depth conversation with a leading expert in the financial services industry about how large, well-established companies should react to the rise of the tech firms.

The expert shared several fascinating insights that every large corporation should consider, regardless of their industry.

Two comments, in particular, stood out:

  1. Innovate quickly: The highly ambitious tech companies are well-funded, extremely nimble, and are chipping away at market share. Well-established firms can no longer rely on old product lines for future performance so they must innovate quickly which is not part of their DNA.
  2. The workforce is evolving: Top university graduates used to aim for a career in the biggest companies or in consulting. The reputational damage suffered by many companies after various crises has turned young talent away from established companies and, instead, towards the fast-moving world of tech and entrepreneurship.

Large companies must use the collective power of their employees in a much more clever way if they want to survive the upcoming tech upheaval.

One HR software business is helping these large companies do just that with its single view of everything in one place: skills, experience, accreditations, preferences, goals, feedback and more – meet Adepto and its Total Talent solution.

Growing An Award-Winning Employee Assessment & Development Software Company With Channel Partners: Great People Inside UK

How To Segment Your Market When Your HR Business Is National Or International

Many HR tech firms and large consulting firms find this a difficult question: How to segment your market when you have national and international clients?

Unlike consultants who live and work locally, HR tech firms operate on a national or international stage.

This can make things a little tricky.

It’s hard to win new clients (especially in an HR sales pitch) when your business sounds generic – all things to all people.

Most tech companies handle this issue in two ways:

  1. Put lots of impressive client logos on the home page.
  2. List out all the industries they’ve helped.

The problem with listing clients and industries is that sometimes the approach helps but other times it actually turns sales prospects off.

Why?

What Would You Say In This HR Sales Pitch?

I often tell HR consultants and HR Tech companies to make it easier for people to refer them new clients by becoming clear on who their business helps.

I’ve had quite a lot of people tell me that this is really hard to do – especially in an HR sales pitch.

The standard response looks a bit like this:

Isn’t it enough to say that we help mid-large employers in the [XYZ] industry?

Well, that’s a start but it’s still quite bland and generic.


Before we start, be sure to join my private HR marketing newsletter for consultants and tech companies in the Human Resources industry.

It reminds me of a time I went to Amsterdam (such a beautiful city) for an RFQ (request for quotation) process.
