Here’s the scenario: You’ve seen how 6sense boosts ROI and makes it easier for sales and marketing teams to hit goals. You’re ready to bring that power to your business. But first, you need to convince the rest of your buying team that this is the right investment and will serve everyone’s interests. That’s easier said than done.

At 6sense, we refer to people in your shoes as “mobilizers” — a team member who is working to inform and influence other decision-makers. You have your team’s respect. You know not only your immediate needs, but the needs of others in the organization. You see a win-win, and are working to make it reality.

Here are some ways to bring others onboard.

Answering the ‘What’s In It For Me?’ Question

The surest way to influence people is to understand their challenges and point them to solutions. You need answers to such questions as, How is adding a new piece of technology going to affect me? and How will I benefit?
