B2B sales is harder than ever before. Product lifecycles are getting shorter, sales cycles are getting longer, there are more competitors entering the market, and buyers are doing most of their research online before they even call you. When you finally get the meeting, buyers only want your best price. Despite all of this, your manager keeps asking for more - more calls, more meetings, faster, faster, faster! You're stuck between a rock and a hard place - a more challenging sales environment than ever before on one side, and ever-increasing quotas and expectations on the other. How will you respond? Wait and see how it all unfolds? Or fight for your career and your livelihood? In The Future of the Sales Profession, sales leader Graham Hawkins shares the cold, hard truths about the new realities facing the sales profession, and how you can protect and enhance your career.

A study published by Jobfox, identified Sales Representative/Business Development as the most recession-proof profession. Profit Magazine reported; “Finding the right sales talent was one of the biggest concerns facing sales organizations today.” Similar studies conducted annually by Manpower Inc. report that the position of “sales representative” is consistently considered by management as one of the most difficult jobs to fill. According to the research in the book “How to Hire & Develop Your Next Top Performer – The Five Qualities That Make Sales People Great”, 1 in 4 people have an aptitude and are well suited for a career in sales. So, if there are that many sales organizations always looking to hire sales people, and so many people have the ability to sell, why are so many sales people having difficulties finding their dream sales position? It’s probably because few of us are ever taught how to actually find it. This eBook is going to fix that. “How to Find Your Dream Sales Job – The future is yours to create!” will ask and answer four basic questions: 1. Why should you consider a career in sales? 2. How to know if you would be good at it? 3. What does your dream job look like? 4. How do you go out into the job marketplace and find it? Why should you consider a sales career, how to know if you would be good at it, how to write a resume and a gender neutral cover letter, what to include in your LinkedIn profile, how to do interview prep, what to wear, how to access the hidden job market, how to evaluate a job offer, how to resign from your current job …. IT’S ALL IN THIS BOOK! Written by Susan A. Enns, a sales coach and author who has been in sales, in one form or another, for well over 3 decades. Over those 30 plus years, in all capacities at all levels of sales, sales management, and executive level management, she has interviewed hundreds, maybe even thousands of candidates for various sales and sales management positions. With that experience under her belt and a record of proven performance to her credit, she wrote this book. She started to write it the day she met a very enterprising young man who wanted to start a career in sales. He told her he found a company online and they were going to charge him more than $3000 to teach him how to find a sales job. She thought at the time that was highway robbery, let alone questioning if it was even legal. She finished writing it shortly after the COVID-19 Pandemic of 2020 changed the world, and so many talented sales people were forced to change jobs and were hitting the job market on a moment’s notice. As Confucius once said, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life”. Susan has had such a rewarding career in sales, she wants to help you explore the same opportunity. So let's get started!

The essential tool kit to achieve breakthrough sales performance improvements. Numbers don’t lie: 40 percent of all salespeople miss their targets each year. How can sales managers ensure their teams are doing everything possible? The key lies in benchmarking, which is not new for finance or manufacturing but rarely gets applied to sales. Making the Number will teach executives to embrace data-driven decision making and rely less on gut instinct. Comparing a sales force to those of relevant peers leads to many opportunities to improve performance. The authors take readers through their five-step methodology for sales benchmarking, showing how to select metrics; gather, compute, and compare internal and external data; and then actually use the data. Making the Number includes case studies of sales benchmarking in action. For example, find out how Discover Financial Services plays David to the Goliaths of MasterCard and Visa. Whether you’re a sales rep, a manager, or a CEO, this book will show you a better way to make your number.

Until recently, sales managers received no specific training for their jobs. However, selling has become more complex with the emergence of regulations and more sophisticated customers. Sales managers need to inspire and achieve sales results by managing teams of professionals and other resources. To do so, they need guidance on dealing with issues that arise in these broader aspects of their role. This concise guide for sales managers is based on a well-known sales management technique called the ‘customer portfolio matrix’. Beth Rogers weaves her version of this throughout, enabling sales managers to see their strategy from the customer’s point of view. Doing so will allow them to set realistic objectives, design new strategies that add real customer value, avoid wasting time on price-oriented customers and deploy resources for maximum results.

Fact: 25% of sales representatives produce 90 to 95% of all sales. Clearly, most of the members on your sales team are not selling up to their potential and therefore not generating the revenues they could. That means neither of you are making the incomes you could! Why is this case? It’s not that the job can’t be done because 25 percent are doing it, and doing it well. It’s because the other 75 percent either are not in the right sales position or they truly don’t know how to sell. Until now, most sales managers have not had access to effective, affordable sales training. Action Plan For Sales Management Success is a proven, turn key program that will become the foundation of your sales management process. Action Plan For Sales Success will improve your sales management skills so that you and your team can achieve your true sales potential. What You Will Learn 1. The B2B Sales Process – The Sales Manager’s Role: Before you can lead, you must know the right direction! 2. Eagles or Turkeys? – Recruiting and Hiring The Right Sales Professional: Hiring the wrong sales person will cost you 3 to 5 times their annual compensation plan! We’ll show you how to recruit and hire right! 3. It All Starts Here! – Your 90 Day Sales Rep Success Plan!: "Welcome to the company, here’s your price book, now go and sell!" will not make your sales team successful. We’ll show you what will! 4.

As the financial industry evolves, industry professionals must adapt to new approaches and ideas to survive, grow, and prosper. It has become increasingly difficult to maintain a current client base, let alone attract new clients with an investment environment that moves faster than a stock trade. The prospecting market is changing, becoming more challenging and risky, with consumer rights protection such as the "do not call" lists, with their hefty fines and new compliance requirements. The simplistic and commonsense approach is gone-instead, we have developed a "brokerese" language that sometimes those in the industry don't even understand. In the business guide Seminar Marketing & Sales Training Techniques for the Financial Professional, author Frank James Eberhart, CEP, RFC, explains his agenda for successfully gaining new clientele: Generate seminar attendance How to get results from your seminars How to increase your revenue How to prepare effective PowerPoint presentations How to develop your sales and closing skills Eberhart uses a simple, straightforward approach that translates into effective seminars that obtain-and keep-new clients. So make the most of it-be prepared, be professional, and be effective!
