The Modern Sales Team – Five Essential Qualities for Success

The Modern Sales Team - Five Essential Qualities for Success We've written before about the way that CRM and digital marketing have changed sales. Customers increasingly find businesses through online channels, conduct research on their own, and by the time they're through the funnel, they may not have talked with a single person from your company. But sales is far from dead: it's only transformed. Brands still need ambassadors, cold calling still works, and - in B2B especially - face-to-face contact still makes a difference. Marketers spend a lot of time finding leads; you need a sales team to close them. In this article, we’ll discuss five important qualities that a modern sales team uses to navigate the 21st century. Data Driven Thinking For years, the most important metric for gauging a salesperson’s success was “revenue,” and that’s it. Revenue is still the bottom line to most sales managers, and while that isn’t likely to change, there are much better ways to prepare a team for success in the digital age.

The problem is that, too often, organizations in need of a project management platform look outside of Salesforce first, adding to the number of disconnected tools that their users have to navigate on a daily basis. And with disconnected tools comes disconnected data, lack of visibility into what matters, and the inevitability that the organization will one day decide they need something that connects that data in a way that provides insights and the ability to make meaningful decisions.  If you’re considering leveraging Salesforce as your project management platform the experts at Rainmaker (with their managed services and technology expertise) have put together this How-To guide to help you figure out where to start!  Getting Started With Salesforce for Project Management Salesforce can do much more than organize contacts and revenue projections -- it can manage project timelines, automate processes, and foster cross-functional communication. There are many ways that Salesforce can enable teams to work on these and other projects, but the basis of it all is its collaboration framework, Salesforce Chatter. Chatter is the internal communication framework that serves as a “private social
