Stage Blood Is Not Enough
Before we started experimenting, sales always worked well for us because of our intuitive understanding of what we were selling.We weren’t selling a product, we weren’t selling a subscription. We were selling MetaLab: our origin stories, our rationales, our experiences, and the scars to prove that we’d been there and slogged through it all. Good clients—the ones that you should be working with exclusively—don’t care about a sales pitch. If you’re a consultancy, they want to buy into you and your company, not your ‘product’.
