Dreamforce is right around the corner, and while the keynotes are guaranteed to wow, my favorite part of the conference is always the breakout sessions. Dreamforce provides the opportunity to learn the latest sales strategies and tactics from the world’s top experts. If you’re looking for sessions on sales strategy, these seven sessions feature A-list speakers and are […]
I recently read that the average tenure of an inside sales manager is just 18 months. It’s a staggeringly low timeframe considering that by Forrester’s estimate, we CMOs – who once had the least job stability in SaaS – stay in their jobs for five years. That began a quest to find out what challenges sales leaders are facing. We […]

So, how are your outbound sales prospecting efforts going? Is your team able to reach most or all of your target accounts?

If there’s still room for improvement, I hope you’ll join us for an incredible webinar on […]
“When you’re finished changing, you’re finished.” Ben Franklin may or may not have been thinking about business operations when he wrote that famous line, but it’s just as applicable in our world as it was in the 1700s. I mention it here because our latest eBook is about something that everyone needs, but most people […]
When TechCrunch erroneously declared that “the phone call is dead” way back in 2010, we knew something they didn’t. While personal call volume was declining in lieu of text messaging, we were certain that business calls were actually becoming more important. And like so many substantially premature death declarations (email, SEO, American manufacturing and the Twinkie), reports of […]
Scott Brinker’s massive new version of the Marketing Technology Landscape is so vast – comprising more than 1,800 companies – that it easily earns its moniker as a “supergraphic” (Before viewing, raise browser zoom to maximum and don a pair of telescopic eyeglasses). Squeezed between the many no-brainer categorical segments such as Marketing Automation and […]
One of the year’s biggest stories in Enterprise Tech is the remaking of HP. The company is in the process of splitting into two huge public companies, with traditional hardware such as printers and laptops on one side of the house, and the other side, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise which will be helmed by Meg Whitman, focusing on cloud computing […]
Ready to manage your sales team like the world’s top inside sales experts? At Dreamforce, one of our most popular sessions was one in which we asked a panel of some of the world’s top sales coaches to weigh in on their best and worst sales metrics. We’ve now distilled the collective wisdom of all […]
I like to think of Salesforce Dashboards as the reward for all the work marketing and sales teams put into Salesforce. Using dashboards, it’s possible to have a single view of all – or nearly all – the metrics you’ll need to not only monitor results and efficiency, but also show off your accomplishments at your next […]
Looking back on my first visit to Dreamforce, the massive cloud computing conference that now regularly draws over 100,000 attendees, I recall noting how few marketers seemed to be in attendance. The conference sported a dazzling array of name-brand business leaders and technologists, but most attendees seemed to be Salesforce administrators, developers from partner companies, and sales managers. Unless […]
Until recently, many enterprise IT departments had stopped trying to build their own internal CRMs, content management systems and sales software. But the era of mobile apps has reset the entire build vs. buy debate. Over the past couple of years, CIOs have thrown themselves back into the business of application building in an effort […]
