The hard work of selling - Welcome back to the Snyder Showdown podcast with host Chris Snyder, a passionate entrepreneur and digital marketer. As President and partner at Juhll.com, a full-service digital marketing agency, and founder, operator and investor in Banks.com, a financial online market place, he loves taking businesses to next level.

In this episode, Chris breaks down his accomplishments from the week prior, including a multitude of investor meetings for his company, Banks.com. He brings listeners through the process of collaborating and meeting with two influential dotcom domains that, combined with Banks.com, could potentially build $100 million worth of value over the next five years. Chris then talks about the importance of awareness and selling what you believe in. A true believer in professionalism, he stresses that it is just as vital to sales success as lead generation and optimization. Finally, he urges aspiring salespeople to prepare and act.
