The 14 Most Relatable Sales Memes to Get You Through Q4 and Beyond

The 14 Most Relatable Sales Memes to Get You Through Q4 and Beyond

Q4 is hard for sales peeps. Here are some sales memes that help.

 

No matter what industry your company is in, it’s safe to say that the pressure is on for sales professionals. After all, these are the people who “bring in the bacon” so that everyone else, including the company itself, can pay the bills.

 

And whether you make straight commission or salary plus commission, making that paycheck goal can add to the stress. Add in those dreaded sales quotas, and many of us live day to day.

 

Luckily, being in sales isn’t all stress. We get to meet new people, work on a team, and feel that sense of accomplishment when closing a big sale.

 

With that in mind, here are some sales memes to get you through the day. As the saying goes, laughter is the best medicine.

 

LinkedIn is a great tool-when used properly (for sales memes for example..)

With all the restrictions that LinkedIn places on acquiring new connections, getting people to accept your request can seem like an uphill battle. This is especially true when you’re new to the industry or have a target who’s known for dodging sales professionals.

 

Of course, that doesn’t mean that someone who accepts your connection request wants to be buddies. As a rule, it means that they view you as a potentially valuable contact. Either way, it’s surprising how few funny sales memes are based on LinkedIn

 

Be careful how often you contact a prospect

Just because someone might be interested in your product doesn’t mean that they want regular contact. At the same time, giving up after just one or two contacts may cause you to miss out on deals. Many sales experts say that you shouldn’t send more than half a dozen emails to a prospect. Similarly, constant phone calls are annoying because they take time away from other tasks. It’s a good way to get blocked.

 

Paychecks. It’s why we put up with the stress

Finally someone made a sales meme about commission checks. One of the best things about sales is the potential to make a lot of money. Especially for large B2B companies, those commissions can be eye-popping. There’s no question that we work hard for that paycheck, though.

 

Instant sales successes are few and far between

 

First Pitch Sales Humor

Everyone knows that sales prospects rarely say “yes” the first time. Even if they ask to “talk to sales,” most people need to get more information before making a buying decision. With that said, people who buy on the first call probably already know that your product is what they want and need. You’re just confirming their choice.

 

Sometimes decision makers use meetings as an excuse

People with buying abilities tend to be very busy. After all, they have lots of responsibility and often wear multiple hats. But that doesn’t mean they’re always in a meeting when the administrative assistant says so. Claiming someone is in a meeting is a common way of saying they’re unavailable or not interested. The trick is figuring out what’s really going on. Dr. Evil sure makes for great sales humor.

 

Sales opportunities don’t only happen during work hours

For many of us, sales is much more than a 9-5 job, as pointed out in this sales meme. We’re always looking for new leads, even as the marketing team feeds us new ones regularly. If someone mentions your product during off-hours, it’s a great opportunity to find out what people think about your product. This can help you overcome objections and refine that pitch. Bonus points if the person mentioning your product is interested in buying.

 

At times, it feels like training never ends. Especially when you’re busy

 

Sales Manager Meme

Sometimes it feels like sales managers are good for one thing, and one thing only: sending you more work. Especially when that extra work is a training video that teaches the Same. Old. Thing. Whatever happened to the cheerleader side of your manager? Probably pressure from higher up in the company.

 

Some people play one sales professional against another. Or they just have a change of plans

When you spend weeks on negotiating a contract, it’s easy to anticipate sealing the deal. After all, most customers want to ensure that they get the right product or service, at the right price. Unfortunately, sometimes there’s a change of plans at the last minute. This can happen because a competitor swoops in and offers more for the same price. Or, it could simply involve needs or budgets changing. Either way, it’s frustrating. Thank goodness there are funny sales memes to keep us laughing

 

Meeting your sales target? Sometimes it’s a real challenge

 

Sales Rep Meme

Sales humor often hints at deep truths. For instance, one thing most of us hate about sales is the bad month. Sometimes it’s really tough to meet our targets. And in some situations, this means our fat paycheck is in jeopardy. Luckily, that next big sale is sometimes just around the corner. When you hit that target, especially with large sales, you can feel at the top of the world.

 

Speaking of sales targets, sometimes management needs to get real

Sometimes it’s easy to imagine that upper management is out of touch with reality. Especially when sales are slow, and leads are few and far between. Nothing adds to the panic in sales when management decides to increase sales quotas. But then again, their bonuses get higher the more an overworked sales professional brings in.

 

December: the month most sales reps wish didn’t exist

If you’ve been in sales for any period of time, you know that December is one of the worst times to sell. For one thing, a lot of decisionmakers go on vacation for the holidays. And to make matters worse, most companies/departments have budgets that end in December. This means that even if you can reach the decisionmaker, there’s a high chance that manager doesn’t have much money to spend. And you have more than enough time to make funny sales memes. Happy holidays.

 

Customers and decision-makers DO call back. Sometimes

 

Cold Call Memes and Sales Humor

Sometimes cold calling, and even following up on sales leads, feels like you’re spitting in the wind. Nobody calls back, and after a while, you get frustrated. Fortunately, those hours of calling do pay off sometimes. It’s just a matter of being persistent. Or as your trainer used to say, every call (or rejection) gets you closer to “yes.” Is that supposed to be some kind of sales humor?

 

Not every customer is realistic about what they can afford. But we still survive

Sometimes it feels like the customer wants to get something for nothing. Or that they don’t realize that their budget is insufficient for what they need. Luckily, in many cases we can meet customers halfway. That can either be through providing less services or a lower-end product for what they can afford, or by convincing them they NEED to pay for what you’re offering. Either way, it isn’t always easy.

 

The Hunt Never Ends

And neither does the tenacity of a good sales professional. Maybe that’s why we found so many funny sales memes around the web related to prospecting. After all, to make a pitch to the right person, you need to find them. Then, you must “hunt” for a way to either go through the gatekeeper or around them. Happy hunting!

AI-Generated Cold Email Intros

Lyne offers sales personalization for high-volume senders

How to send personalized cold emails with Woodpecker and Lyne.ai

What you’ll learn

 

Sending cold email is still the number one way of generating new business, even as we’re entering 2022. However, it’s undeniable that things have changed over the last few years. 

 

While before you could load up a few hundred emails that started with {{first_name}} tags and you’d land a few solid leads, these days that won’t cut it anymore.

 

Personalization is the name of the game now, and in this guide I’ll show you exactly how to win that game.

 

By linking together Woodpecker and Lyne.ai you’ll be able to send hyper-personalized cold emails on autopilot. I’m not talking about personalized images or generic or shallow personalization — I’m talking about sending emails like this one, at scale:

 

Cold email template

 

If that sounds like something you’d like to be able to do for yourself or for your clients then keep reading. I’ll show you how to:

 

  • Personalize icebreakers at scale based on podcast appearances, webinar appearances, Substack newsletters, blogs, company case studies, and much, much more
  • How to set that up in Woodpecker
  • How to automate the entire workflow and save hundreds of man hours per month (yours truly managed 20 clients for his cold email agency, alone, using this exact method)

 

Why you need it

 

If you’re reading this, chances are you already have the answer to that question. Generic cold emails no longer work, but personalization takes time and isn’t scalable.

 

You’ll either find yourself spending hours inside Google Sheets & LinkedIn, trying to come up with icebreakers or one-liners. Or, you’ll end up hiring VAs or SDRs who need training, supervision, and well..a paycheck. Not ideal.

 

Lyne.ai was built for that exact reason: helping people like yourself to achieve superhuman productivity.

 

We don’t believe that sales deals should be closed by robots, only humans can and should do that. However, that first touch is something that can be done far more efficiently and that’s where we + Woodpecker come in.

 

Let’s get started: generating cold email icebreakers with AI

 

Lyne.ai uses artificial intelligence to analyze your prospects, find anything there is to find on them online, and write (several) icebreaker(s) or intros for them which you can use as {{mergetags}} in your cold outreach.

 

We’re able to find Substack newsletters, podcast appearances, webinars these people hosted, case studies they posted, blog posts they’re featured in, and much more.

 

While all we need is a LinkedIn profile or a professional email address, the more data you provide us with, the better.

 

You can then set your preferences in Lyne on which sources to use for your personalized cold email intros, and in which order.

 

Lyne.ai Advanced Settings

 

Pro tip #1: toggle the “subject lines” button — we’ll create matching subject lines for your intro. If for example the intro talks about a case study, the subject line will be “your xxx case study” or “x% increase for client xx”.

 

If for example blog posts are most important to you, you can set those at the top of your list, followed by your second most important source.

 

Think of it as telling your SDR “if they have a blog, use that. But if there’s nothing there, go and have a look at their LinkedIn profile”.

 

Only thing is, Lyne writes about 900x faster than your average SDR. Processing a file with 1000 prospects will take around 1 hour. Just think of how many cold email campaigns you can feed this way..

 

Once ready, your results will be available for download or sync in your dashboard. Download the CSV to give the results a quick skim or touch up, to then sync them with Woodpecker.

 

Or, use our built-in Woodpecker integration to automatically sync your results with any account or campaign you have linked in your dashboard.

 

Mailshake Integrations

 

Pro tip #2: you can manage unlimited clients and campaigns from your Lyne dashboard

 

Preparing your Woodpecker account

 

Before you’re able to use your new AI-generated cold email intros, you’ll need to know how to use custom variables in Woodpecker.

 

For example, for our intros we use the variable {{lyne}}, while for the matching subject lines we generate we use the {{subject_lyne}} variable.

 

 

Pro tip #3: read the official Woodpecker help article here: https://docs.woodpecker.co/en/articles/5258902-how-to-use-our-custom-fields-snippets

 

After uploading your Lyne.ai CSV for the first time, you should map all Lyne-generated data as “Other” to be able to use them as variables.

 

 

Once you’ve created your list, go to your email template and click on the dropdown menu to select a new variable (you should now see the name of your CSV’s columns).

 

 

That’s it — you’re now able to use the “personalized snippets” Lyne created in your Woodpecker campaigns.

 

The results: your automated AI-lead generation bot

 

Feeling like Elon Musk yet? You’ve just built your very own AI-powered sales rep – you’re one step closer to building your own rocket I suppose.

 

Now all you’ll have to do is regularly add prospects to Lyne, then sync those with your Woodpecker account. Each of your prospects will receive a hyper-personalized cold email that looks as if you’ve spent hours researching them online.

 

Most of our users say they’ll never go back to sending normal emails again, simply because the results are too good. From 200% increases in open rates, to 3-4x higher reply rates, to downscaling human operations from 50+ people to just 8 – Lyne.ai users are making more money with the help of AI.

 

So what are you waiting for, get started with Woodpecker and Lyne.ai today!

What you’ll learn

 

Sending cold email is as yet the main method of creating new business, even as we’re entering 2022. Nonetheless, it’s evident that things have changed in the course of the most recent couple of years.

 

While before you could stack up a couple hundred messages that began with generic {{mergetags}} and you’d land a couple of strong leads, nowadays that will not cut it any longer. Personalization is king, and today I’ll show you exactly how to become cold email royalty.

 

By connecting together Mailshake and Lyne.ai you’ll have the option to send hyper-customized cold messages on autopilot. I’m not discussing customized pictures or conventional or shallow personalization – I’m looking at sending messages like this one, at scale:

Lyne.ai was created for that precise purpose: assisting individuals to accomplish superhuman efficiency.

Lusha Review: Data Compliance

 

All Lusha’s records are both CCPA compliant and GDPR aligned, so users shouldn’t fall foul of any legislation regarding the possession or use of business contact information. All the data they source is publicly available (just a little cumbersome and time consuming to source manually).

CRM’s: HubSpot, ZOHO, Pipedrive, Salesforce

 

Sales Engagement Systems: Salesloft, Outreach

Automation Tool: Zapier

 

Zapier Integrations

 

Through Zapier, you can pair Lusha with Facebook, LinkedIn, Excel, Bullhorn CRM, Intercom, Twitter, Reply, Airtable, and many, many more. 

 

However, there are no listed triggers on Zapier and only one supported action at present, which is to look up a contact. Some work may therefore have to be done by your developers to obtain best value from Lusha in collaboration with Zapier.

 

The ‘Lookup Contact’ action could be used to find new contact information for new Google Sheets entries for example or to enrich new Salesforce entries. While those use cases go beyond the scope of this Lusha review, we recommend having a look at the Lusha Zapier listing page to see if the integration you need is available.

 

Lusha Zapier Integration

 

Pricing

 

Lusha can be paid for in single annual payments, or monthly installments. There’s a trial starter version which is free and offers five complimentary contacts per month. 

 

Lusha Pricing Review

 

For paid subscriptions, you have the following options:

 

(the first cost listed pertains when you pay in one installment; the second is for monthly installments).

 

Professional 2 users 1200 contacts/yr email addresses and phone numbers plus

$74/$99 per month exportable contacts and prospecting options.

 

Premium to 5 users 3600 credits/year email addresses and phone numbers plus

$149/$199 per month exportable contacts and prospecting options,

bulk data enrichment and CRM integration.

 

Enterprise Customed to your requirements All the above plus added integration, team

Cost negotiable management, API access plus dedicated “success

manager”.

 

Price may prove a sticking point with smaller businesses looking to scale up, since this is quite a large monthly outlay.  However, with a free trial version and a bespoke Enterprise solution, there may be ways to reduce these costs or justify the expenditure.

In Summary

 

Lusha scores highly with reviewers, many of whom are loyal to the product, pointing out how easy it is to install and use.

 

Criticisms tend to center upon the fact that it is relatively expensive, outdated information (which is to be expected) and a lack of support are the most common topics in users their Lusha review. 

 

Integrations may be required in order to accurately scrape data from sources other than LinkedIn or business websites.

 

Despite these downsides, Lusha does tend to stack up very well against its competition. Its high number of professional adopters and large quantity of online reviews suggest that Lusha is a good bet when you’re building a database of contacts.

Lusha remains a strong contender within the category, however, and could save your sales and marketing teams considerable time and effort, while we hope this Lusha review has helped you do the same.
