Ep 205: Product Development that Solves a Problem

In this episode, we talk with Dr. Russ Barnes about Product Development that Solves a Problem. Some of the most successful companies in the world built their brands by identifying a problem in the market and then building a product or service to solve that problem. One of the reasons this model is extremely effective is because the buyer already understands and acknowledges the problem. When a solution presents itself, they are excited to buy it. This is what coined the sales phrase, ‘this product sells itself.” On the other hand, some companies develop their widget and then try to force that into the market whether there is a need or not. This doesn’t often turn out the way companies hoped. This podcast will walk you through a methodology for developing products or services based on needs/problems.

In this special episode of Game Changers, you go 1-on-1 with Michael LeJeune to talk about not being ready for certain aspects of being a government contractor.

Ep 202: Ghosting to Influence an RFP

In this special episode of Game Changers, you go 1-on-1 with Michael LeJeune to talk about Ghosting to Influence an RFP. Ghosting is hands down one of the most underrated things you should incorporate into your BD/Capture process. Ghosting by definition is: positioning the value of your capabilities and differentiate in such a way as to marginalize your competition. If executed properly, informal and formal ghosting tactics will allow you to influence decision-makers so that RFPs come out written in such a way that your company is the obvious choice for the work. This episode will break down several areas that you can and should ghost during pre-acquisition.
