I delayed today’s bonus episode released by a couple of days because I wanted to give those of you who’ve taken action before and subscribed to the listener list a bit of a head start. I always try to provide a little extra value there. If you’re not already subscribed, I hope you’ll do that first. As in, right now! Just go to Top1.fm and drop your name and email address into one of the forms. That’s all it takes.
Today I get to tell you about the launch of the $SALES Community Coin. This is something I’ve been watching and studying for a little over a year since my friend and mentor, Joe Pulizzi, launched his own $TILT Coin in support of his business that’s all about supporting Content Entrepreneurs. I’ve personally participated in half a dozen projects and watched carefully to see what does and doesn’t work with the intent to bring this idea to the Sales Success Community.
All of these coins live on Rally, which they describe as a platform for creators and their communities to build their own independent digital economies. For those of you who are into Crypto, Rally is a sidechain and has its own Rally coin (RLY) which serves as a bridge to the Ethereum Blockchain.
The good news is, you don’t have to understand any of that. In fact, one of the things I’m most excited about is introducing this community to the world of crypto and Web3 in a way that isn’t overly complicated. There’s still way too much friction in crypto and NFTs in general and Rally makes it super easy. You just create an account, and you can buy $SALES coins with a credit card. Easy as that.
But you never have to actually BUY $SALES coins if you don’t want to. I’m setting this up in such a way that there will be tons of ways to earn coins simply by actively participating in the community and continuing to listen to this podcast. Think of it as the ultimate loyalty program where you can earn points that have real value. In fact, my friend and mentor, Mark Schaeffer, who created the $RISE Coin has been challenging me and himself to figure out how to make these coins more valuable than money.
Now, I should probably note that Joe and Mark have 2 of the top 3 coins on the Rally Network of over 300 projects. So you’d better believe that I’m actively learning from the top 1% with this project and believe that together we can grow the value of the $SALES coin into that same top 1% space within the next 12 months.
One of the reasons I believe that’s absolutely achievable is because the vast majority of these coins are being used as “Creator Coins,” that are meant to support some type of creator, and you’ll find a huge variety on Rally. But I’m yet to see somebody build true community with a coin. A community that is actively engaged and supports itself.
Just yesterday an active member of this community reached out to me looking for some career and territory advice as he gets ready to start a new job. I think I was able to be a little bit helpful, but it was connecting him with another member of the community who was much closer to this specific part of the marketing tech space who was able to provide some game-changing advice.
Those are the types of interactions I’m hoping to foster and reward, because those who’ve gotten involved in this community in its more organic form through the Sales Success Summits and such have proven to be some of the most thoughtful and generous people in sales. Heck, you’ve listened to lots of their stories on this podcast, but it’s not just the podcast guests. It’s those who’ve really leaned in and gotten involved. Some of whom have become the biggest contributors.
That’s one of the first things we’re going to open up. We started building a Sales Success Community Slack Workspace for Summit ticket holders, and now we’re going to invite $SALES coin holders to join us in that private space.
One of the first places that the $SALES coin becomes more valuable than money is through its power to purchase a ticket to the Sales Success Summit. Right now those tickets are $1,299 at Top1Summit.com, but a limited number of those same tickets are just $999 if you pay with $SALES Coins.
But it’s so much more than that. Anyone who holds 1% or more of the coins will be invited to join the Coin Council to help me steer the value and utility of this project. I’m also looking at creating and rewarding a small group of listeners who will help vet and select the tips that get featured on the Daily Sales Tips podcast, so we can continue to increase the quality and relevance of that show.
So let’s quickly talk about getting started, because you’re going to have to have an account before you can start earning, and like I said it won’t cost you a dime to get started.
Just go to SalesCoin.co/start. You’ll need to fill in 5 fields and click a check box to create your account and get started. Once you’ve done that, you’ll want to go to SalesCoin.co/form and share your new Rally Username and Rally Network ID with me so I can send you your first $10 worth of $SALES coins.
You might want to write this down, but it’s just those two links. SalesCoin.co/start and SalesCoin.co/form. Once you’ve done that you’ll be able to start claiming the coin drops that will probably be included in nearly every email I send. I’m also going to start including them in podcast episodes like this. Here’s the first one of those. For an extra 10 coins, just click over to SalesCoin.co/SSS1
We’ll continue to build on these over time, but it’s really just about being actively engaged. Read the newsletters, listen to these podcast episodes, actively contribute and converse on Slack. Then tell your friends and colleagues in sales about what we’re doing!
Want to take another step and become an even more active contributor. Buy some coins. Make a bet on the future value of this community and this space and consider accumulating enough coins to be a part of the coin council.
I’m not going to get into too much detail around this right now as my plan is to offer a regular series of webinars to talk coin holders through some of the inner workings of the Rally platform and our plans, but it’s definitely worth nothing that coins and communities that are growing are eligible to receive Rally Rewards. This is a weekly distribution shared among all coin holders in the proportion to the percentage of coins they hold.
This week, for example, we’re on track to share about $4500 in weekly rewards and I fully expect that number to be even higher next week.
Like I shared with the core of the community who already hold tickets to this year’s Summit, it can be a little bit hard to understand initially until you experience it. Your best bet is just to dive in. Create your account, provide your details via the form so I can send you a few coins so you can get started, and then watch what happens. Whether you want to be a passive participant or an active contributor is up to you. Obviously one of those approaches will prove to be much more rewarding, but both should be beneficial.
Let’s do that rundown one last time so you can get started. First, go to SalesCoin.co/start to create your Rally Account. Then go to SalesCoin.co/form to provide your details so I can send you your first $10 worth. Then, don’t forget to go to SalesCoin.co/SSS1 to claim an additional 10 coins from there. From there, watch each Sunday that we’re eligible for your rewards to arrive, and just keep an eye on the newsletter for updates and tips.
This should be a really fun and truly rewarding journey. Much like growing as a true sales professional. I really hope you’ll be a part of it.
Thanks for listening, and as always I’ve got another killer interview for you next week with another top-performing sales professional. In fact, this one is pretty mind-blowing. My guest was the top performer of over 550 sellers in his organization for 230 months in a row! You’re not going to want to miss it. So make sure you’re subscribed to the podcast and I’ll talk to you again next Tuesday.
Thanks for listening!
