New eGuide: Building a High-Performance Sales Team
“Revenue is the lifeblood of any company and the key to driving revenue growth is a high-performing sales team. It comes as no surprise then that scaling a sales organization is one of the most common issues on the minds of the hundreds of CEOs and founders with whom we have the privilege of interacting each year.”
Over the past 11 years, Serent has partnered with more than 35 portfolio companies and evaluated investments in thousands of others. As a result of our Growth Team’s hands-on work with our portfolio companies, we have compiled our perspectives around the major components of an effective sales framework in this eGuide.
In this downloadable eGuide, you can learn how to implement key elements to set your fast-growing sales team up for success, including:
- Building an effective customer and prospect database
- Creating account targeting plans
- Designing a sales playbook tailored to your business
- How to map your sales territory
- Building a sales compensation plan
- Developing an effective sales hiring process
- 4 components of successful sales training
“While this framework can consistently be applied across industries and business models, it is important to note that this is not a cookie-cutter playbook. The reality is that selling software in higher education institutions will differ from how a service offering is sold to a skilled nursing facility or how a construction company will think about purchasing workflow software.”
