Today’s buying experience is extremely challenging to navigate - with a plethora of choices, easy access to research, and competing (and often contradictory) voices. Buyers struggle with being overwhelmed, indecisive, and trusting the information that’s presented to them (among other things).   For buyer-facing teams, the struggle is also very real. How can they communicate the value of their solution in a way that meets buyers’ wants, needs, and expectations while meeting their own goals and those of the organization?   We teamed up with Heinz Marketing in a recent research study to discover the roadblocks revenue- generating teams encounter in preparing buyer-facing teams to be ready in today’s market. We did so with a vision of the future to bring you recommendations on how to invigorate sales enablement and facilitate changes for buyer-centric sales strategies to create highly personalized experiences that people and brands will love and therefore increase the bottom line.

As we enter 2022, Covid-19 and uncertainty continue to impact every aspect of incentives. Adaptation, flexibility, and communication will continue to be key as companies weigh their options about bringing employees together, whether it’s opening the office or travelling on an incentive trip. Incentive professionals are called to motivate a changing workforce while corporate goals also continue to change. For the foreseeable future, a remote and hybrid workforce is here to stay. A Mercer survey last May found that 83% of employers will continue to provide flexibility at greater scale post pandemic. Given the importance of recruitment, retention, and engagement, incentive programs will be more important than ever. Dramatic hiring shifts are driving companies to examine how to be even more competitive in the job market, and a robust incentive program is an important part of a company’s full benefits package. According to the IRF’s Industry Outlook for 2022, overall incentive budgets are expected to increase by 34% in 2022, with the per-person spend increasing to $806 from $764 the prior year - although these budgets will need to accommodate price increases resulting from workforce, inventory, and supply chain challenges.

Modern Corporate Training Today, modern corporate training programs must focus on building a culture of learning to engage, train, and retain employees. They must also prove that these programs impact business growth. To help you prioritize initiatives, we’ve identified six of the most important trends shaping corporate training today.
While organizations around the world are spending billions of dollars on training, most of that investment is being wasted. Here’s what you can do to make sure your sales training initiatives add up to long-term results. Have you ever observed a sales representative during a call and thought, "How can this be the same person who did so well during training? Why aren’t they doing what they were taught?" They’ve been through the training and learned the skills—intellectually they know what they should do—but now that they’re back on the job, they’ve fallen into old habits and behaviors. The fact is, this situation is more often the rule than the exception. Data collected by the consulting firm ES Research has shown that 85 to 90 percent of sales training fails to translate into a lasting improvement in productivity. So what’s keeping the training from moving sales professionals from knowing to doing? Here are 4 of the most common reasons most sales training fails.
Emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic, many (if not all) companies are hyperfocused on boosting sales. A Google search for "sales enablement" yields millions of results—and a variety of conflicting definitions. Clearly, sales enablement can mean different things to different people. To some, it’s tools, tactics, and training. To others, it’s all about strategy, data, and analytics.  To us, it includes all those things—but it always starts with the story. Like any good book, your sales story should be a page-turner—keeping prospects hooked by engaging, inspiring, and making powerful emotional connections with them. But too often, the stories sales teams tell are fragmented, overly focused on product specs and features, or misaligned with marketing. The right story can make all the difference. And because research suggests that 50% of leads are qualified but not ready to buy, telling that story in the right ways at the right stages of the sales funnel is essential for converting new prospects into loyal customers. But an effective sales story involves more than delivering certain keywords to drive awareness, consideration, and decision as prospects move through the funnel. It should be a holistic, consistent thread that runs through all your communications to prospects—and one that’s laser-focused on the value you offer and the problems you can solve for them. Here are three critical steps to ensure that your sales team is telling a clear and compelling story about what you offer and why people will want to engage with your brand.
Just like face-to-face meetings, virtual meetings and events still begin with the basics.  Think about the demographics of those attending. Before you start planning the agenda and developing content, you must consider your participants. Who are they? What is the average age? What are their interests? What are common threads that bond them? Then, how will you get them to stay engaged? If you can’t envision them participating in something live, don’t expect them to do it virtually either. Ultimately, you need to determine what is going to make this meeting or event successful for your attendees"    With this as a starting point, this eGuide - created by the experienced staff at One10 Marketing - will walk you through the considerations and process that will guide you to creating a successful virtual event or conference.

Sales Enablement For Marketers If you’re a marketer supporting a sales team, you’ve got a lot on your plate. Sellers are facing one of the most difficult buying landscapes in recent memory—and they need your help. To be effective, you need to align with sales, deliver the best content and other resources that will move deals through the pipeline, and make sure sellers can find and use these resources properly. "Sales enablement has never been more important than it is today." You crank out solution briefs, case studies, videos, blog posts, product guides, and more to support reps' interactions with prospects and help them be productive. You work closely with sales to learn which types of content are working to nurture leads and close deals. You keep your ears open to industry trends and one eye on the company roadmap to anticipate content needs and fill in any gaps. It’s a continuous process of creating and sharing those new materials with reps to allow them to reach customers and sell more effectively. But it can often seem like all your hard work is for naught. You need a better way. Find out how the right sales enablement solution can help you overcome these issues and turn your marketing into an engine that can turbocharge your sales growth for years to come.
