LAUNCHING A SALES ENABLEMENT PLATFORM
Is your company new to sales enablement? Or, maybe you need to revitalize your existing platform to have stronger adoption and increased content usage. There are so many reasons to upgrade your organizational schema in your sales enablement platform. We’ve helped enterprise companies to small-scale sales organizations lay the foundation for a successful implementation of sales enablement platforms, like Showpad, through our process.
Enable your buyers…
A Journey of a thousand miles starts with a solid Sales Enablement foundation
While sales enablement is the common term, in many ways these platforms are ‘buyer enablement’ because you are improving the buyer’s experience. When set up correctly, Showpad and other buyer enablement platforms help teams achieve goals in scalable, predictable, and repeatable ways – while also allowing your sales team the flexibility they need in the field. Setting up a platform can be daunting without guidance however, and it’s risky to simply “shotgun” your sales enablement practices. Luckily, we have a step-by-step process for launching platforms effectively, providing ROI with strong content and consistent messaging.
Overall, your mission should be to bridge marketing and sales groups by talking to the leaders, and then building a vision to ensure reps are effective in their pitches. Incorporating training throughout your SE approach is another key component. Once the best sales paths are identified, we can help create the tagging schema, structure, tools, playbooks, and apps that accentuate your buyer’s desires. This will help you reduce the sales cycle length and increase deal sizes by being a trusted partner.
Leave the guesswork out of sales enablement by relying on experts. When you need a partner in this journey, People Productions is an experienced guide when it comes to launching and setting up a successful sales enablement approach that is enthusiastically accepted by your team.
Your process should establish a structural foundation that supports your buyer’s journey with the goal of shortening the path to closing each deal.
