What is a Sales Development Representative?


A Sales Development Representative (let’s call them SDRs from now on) is a salesperson that works at the start of the sales process. When you’re an SDR, your job is to reach out to prospects who may not know anything about your company or what you sell – and begin a relationship that will end up in a sale.


You have several tools at your disposal to grab your prospects’ attention – you can make cold calls (don’t worry, it’s not as bad as it sounds!), send emails, reach out on LinkedIn, even make short snappy videos. Whatever works, basically!


Once you’ve got hold of your prospect, you’ve got to:

  • Build good rapport with them
  • Work out if they have a need for your product be asking intelligent questions
  • Move them to the next stage of your sales process – usually booking a meeting for someone else in the team to sit until you gain experience


After that, an Account Executive (AE) will take over and close the deal. Good SDRs are a valuable part of the sales team, as the warmer your prospects are at the start of the sales process, the more likely they are to become customers. SDRs are typically first jobbers, often straight out of university. Being an SDR is not an easy job, but it is fun, well-paid, and you’ll learn skills that can take you anywhere.


Progression Paths as an SDR!

Being an SDR isn’t just a job. It’s your first step towards a glittering career – in sales and beyond. When you become an SDR, the average time you’ll spend in that position is 13-18 months. What happens after that? If you work hard and achieve results, just about anything!

You might decide to become an SDR Manager – and help bring through a new generation of talented salespeople just like you.

Or you might prefer to become an Account Executive (or AE) and work at the business end of the sales process, closing deals.

If you make a success of these roles, you may end up leading the entire sales team.
