Topcu is the head of managed services at InsideOut Lab. He oversees the PlayOps team, which helps clients establish higher return on effort with their business development strategies through a “sales play.” According to Topcu, “a sales play is an outbound series of sales activities, designed to turn a prospect into a genuine selling opportunity. “Think of it like a plan of attack, targeting prospective buyers in a direct, structured way, leveraging sales enablement resources, strategies, KPIs, tonality, buyer personas and ideal customer profiles. For inbound calls or buyer enquiries, we create Sales Motions. These are a perfectly balanced series of conversational activities, designed to increase inbound conversions and customer satisfaction rates for rich, memorable and engaging interactions. Our deliverables are established by consulting on: benchmarking; tech-stack utilization and automation; sales operations optimization; improved buyer engagement strategy development; improved call/email/social/video messaging and personalization; strategy and messaging performance; health checks; sales campaign installations to sales platforms; training teams on-site or virtually to increase their confidence in utilizing their new sales plays with target buyers.”

Sercan was the Co-founder of Tembo Education and responsible for developing, managing, and executing traditional and new-age marketing/branding strategies. He was in charge of email, content, affiliate marketing, and re-targeting. Recruit/manage the micro-entrepreneurs network and marketing team personnel.
