- Develop cold email campaigns and reactivate cold leads we’ve previously demo’d to, or came in through our self-serve signup.

- Inspire prospects regarding the value and potential of our platform, and adapt your pitch to their pain points.
- Manage your accounts post-sale, to make sure they’re getting value and seeing success with the platform.
