Ep. 43 - Thinking Outside the To-Do List - with Michael Sacca
4 days ago
Today’s episode is the second part of our Getting Started series. We’re talking to people who got off their butt and took action to accomplish the dream they have been sitting on for years. Michael Sacca is President of Crew, a service that matches skilled freelancers with project owners, and co-host of Rocketship.FM, a podcast that dives into funding, growth, culture, sales and everything in between. Michael expected he would be a developer forever – he never expected to be the chief sales person at a company. Yet, in the first half of 2016, he was responsible for 40% of Crew’s revenue. He succeeds as a marketer by building relationships with clients and former clients. Those relationships have allowed him to identify where Crew provides the most value and sell the product to higher-paying clients. Crew is a little different than your typical freelance economy business. They tried to solve many of the problems usually experienced by freelancers and project owners. For freelancers, things like sourcing work, vetting work, filling out RFPs and bidding on projects is time-consuming. Crew takes over business development tasks so that the freelancers can just focus on being creative. For project owners, there is a templated system that will help even first time project managers create milestones and schedule check-ins, plus it offers them extra protections. Of course, they are also paired with the most appropriate talent working with Crew. 99% of their projects have been completed on time, on budget and issue-free.
