It’s no longer enough to know basic demographic information about your buyers. In today’s landscape, your customers expect you to know them almost better than they know themselves. As a result, sales enablement is now more important than it’s ever been — because without it, your sales team may find itself unable to convert.
But sales enablement training software alone won’t bridge this gap. You must also ensure your salespeople have what they need to do their job. They need access to the right sales enablement tools, as well as information about their audience.
Most importantly of all, you must blend these with the right organizational culture, sales strategies, and processes. That may seem overwhelming at first, but it doesn’t need to be. Just as the best works are written on the shoulders of those who came before, your approach to sales enablement can be informed by leaders in your field.
With that in mind, here are some of the best, brightest, and most inspirational sales enablement leaders on social media.
