Sangram Vajre - InstagramChallenging the Sales Status Quo

We all know the sales funnel. We are familiar with its design, function, and purpose. But what if somebody came along and told you that your funnel had been upside down this whole time? And that starting with a narrow field of prospects and expanding as you went was actually better than whittling down from a large pool to a handful of qualified leads and customers? It seems crazy, right?

Sangram Vajre has found that turning the sales cycle literally on its head is the best approach to closing deals and building a foundation of advocates. The new revenue model has become all about customer experience. His revolutionary approach has spurred a movement within martech and given rise to a series of festivals, conferences, and virtual summits that are drawing in hundreds of marketing specialists from around the world and challenging the status quo on a daily basis.
