Sales Enablement Goes Social [Infographic]

It has been amazing to watch business functions evolve as the ‘social’ wave continues to make a splash (check out the The Path to Social Englightenment Infographic). One of the hot trends we’re hearing right now from our customers is a measurable uptick in efficiency and productivity as they apply social business software to their sales force.


The answer is actually quite simple. Sales is a largely a social function. You don’t sell to machines, you sell to people. You also  don’t sell alone – you need a team behind you to win. A fully  productive sales team needs access to the right information, the right  expertise and the right tools – in real time – to give them the edge to win. A social sales strategy needs to be pervasive, meaning it is not limited to a single sales use case. The ability to connect across  boundaries – partners, customers and employees – is absolutely critical  to take full advantage of the new way to business and can have a big impact on both direct and indirect sales channels.


A picture is worth a 1000 words. We created the infographic below called “Any Given Sales Day” to illustrate the difference between the old and new way of selling.  You can download a copy for yourself as part of our Sales Enablement Toolkit.
