What's A Sales Coach? And Why Do I Need One?

Pete Caputa was running a small software company, and like a lot of entrepreneurs, he was struggling. Caputa didn’t have a lot of experience in sales. In the previous year, he had generated only $30,000. So Caputa did something athletes do when they’re in a slump. He hired a coach -- a "sales coach," who could teach him how to sell. The coach charged a lot of money for a struggling startup: $1,000 a month for 12 months. But the investment paid off. Within six months, Caputa booked $100,000 in sales.

Caputa later joined HubSpot, where he’s now a VP of sales and a passionate believer in the value of sales coaching. “I believe that all salespeople should hire an external sales coach,” he says. “A strong external sales coach will help you close deals in the short term, gain skills for the long term and overcome weaknesses that might be holding you back from being a rock star. They’ll give you guidance as well as tough love.”
