Each month, we interview one of our out-of-sight employees here at Whereoware. For November, we get to know Allie Chilcoat, our Business Development Representative, a little better.
What’s your name? Allie Chilcoat
Job title: Business Development Representative
Favorite food: Hot wings. The hotter the better.
Hidden talents: Never being able to finish a TV show series. In the age of Netflix, believe me, it’s a talent.
A song you know by heart: “Ice, Ice Baby” by Vanilla Ice. Also a hidden talent?
One item you would bring with you to a desert island and why: Sunscreen. When life gives you an unexpected break from reality, just take it and embrace it.
A DAY IN THE LIFE:
What advice would you give someone who is interested in business development?
Never give up and don’t lose momentum. In any sales position, especially as a BDR, you can’t sweat the small stuff. There will always be rejections, hang-ups, and colorful email responses, you just have to put everything into perspective because there will always be wins that follow the set-backs.
What’s your favorite aspect of your role?
I love that every day is different and that I can mix up my means of outreach. Some days I’ll be crafting clever emails to get the attention of a hot prospect, other times I’ll be dialing like crazy to get individuals to attend our latest and greatest event.
No matter what I’m doing, the best part of the job is being able to connect people and help them find the tailored solutions they need to overcome their challenges. In business development, it’s all about knowing your potential client and understanding what their pain points are in relation to their business goals.
What’s the best part about working at Whereoware?
The best part about working at Whereoware is the creative license that everyone is given here. Whether it’s finding a better business contact platform or getting festive with my outreach emails – there are no limits on finding my own personal way to succeed in my role.
