Sales reps can often take a loss poorly, letting history affect the future. Their confidence is bruised, so much so that they can't put themselves back in front of an important prospect, or if they do, they just can't represent themselves and your company the way that you want them to.
Under the Sales 2.0 paradigm, high-tech resources allow sales teams to target and engage with leads in a way that feels seamless and non-invasive. The model lends itself particularly well to the bottom of the sales funnel, where prospects are nearing purchase-readiness. To ensure that top-of-funnel leads are not ignored, sales and marketing departments must do more than align—they must fully integrate.
Even the most seasoned presentation teams can experience obstacles in putting their best foot forward in high-stakes sales presentations. They can be worried about coming on too strong, or not strong enough. They can experience the "stage fright" that comes with being in front of an audience that is sure to be judging them. And they can get hung up on all the standard questions about where to look and what to do and how to do it.

In the world of business, it’s important for people across all business functions to help the firm produce visible results.  However, sometimes, the "machine" of the business needs to be fine-tuned because everyone’s running on their functional treadmills, and when this happens, the business isn’t running in tip-top shape!   If you pair this with the fact that resources are scarce, the treadmill runs faster and important cross-functional hand-offs are missed.
The toughest thing for sales people is to ask questions and REALLY stay silent. They just talk too much and sabotage a sales person’s success.

This webinar will teach creative ways to build great sales people who ask consistently open-ended questions, actively listen, and DO NOT TALK TOO MUCH!
Studies continue to support the fact that coaching works! Sales people who participate in a sales coaching program are more likely to stay, and increase performance.

Let’s face it: many mentoring programs work more in theory than in practice because neither mentors nor mentees are held accountable for results. At SuccessFactors, we took a different approach.

When it comes to assessing the potential for scaling your company’s revenues, the past does not necessarily equal the future.   Sure, a track record of achieving sales targets is clearly important and might be an indicator of future performance, but to really succeed going forward, your company must build a solid and scalable platform to support growth through sustainable, long-term sales effectiveness.
A recent study from the Lenskold Group/Pedowitz Group identified that companies in which marketing plays a role in revenue production, these companies are outgrowing their competition.  Are you outgrowing your competition?  2013 is the year for you to forget what you think you know about the role of marketing in revenue and embrace a new concept called Revenue Marketing.  In companies in which Revenue Marketing is used, marketing contributes up to 90% of the pipeline.  So if you’re heading into 2013 and you need a little help on growing top line revenue, marketing may turn out to be your secret weapon.
Improving sales performance has never been more important for major global corporations. After years of recession-induced cost cutting, leaders are putting increasing emphasis on implementing go-to-market strategies to boost both top- and bottom-line results, and expecting their sales organizations to execute them.   But times have changed, purchasing organizations have gained more power, and it’s more challenging than ever to close the gap between go-to-market strategy as articulated by senior management and its profitable execution with customers.

However, those bigger, must-win deals often require more than a sales rep’s standard approach.
