“When an individual salesperson catches the vision of inbound, they can do great things, but their potential is amplified enormously when their leaders and teams also commit to inbound practices. And when it isn't just the sales team, but when the entire organization is committed to serving customers across the entire buyer's journey, then inbound becomes truly transformational for both the company and its customers. Each course includes a project and tasks where you can apply your skills in a practical way. These tasks are directly transferable to skills you will need to use on the job.”
Sales enablement provides salespeople with the best practices, knowledge, tools, and resources required to be successful. It is becoming increasingly important in a world that has buyers with more knowledge and information.
About 50% of sales time is wasted on unproductive prospecting. This course will teach you how to have more productive conversations and deliver value quicker. Sales is a results game, but to get the results you want, it requires the right strategy. 84% of sales reps achieve their quotas when their employer incorporates a best-in-class sales enablement strategy.
