Please join the Sales Enablement Society and Corporate Visions for a webinar July 21, 2020, at 1 pm EST, titled “Beyond the Basics of Virtual Selling: How to Stand and Deliver in the Most Critical Selling Moments,” featuring Tim Riesterer, Chief Strategy Officer at Corporate Visions.

Before this year, at least 70 percent of sales calls were already happening remotely, while in-person meetings were reserved for the most critical conversations with decision makers at the highest level.

Salespeople are now becoming more adept with remote selling basics, but how do they manage the make-or-break moments that were previously handled in-person? And how do SE practitioners equip them to “stand and deliver,” now that their presence is reduced to the size of a postage stamp in the corner of a screen?

  • Employ strategies to ace the most critical virtual sales conversations
  • Equip sellers to build and deliver engaging and memorable virtual presentations using science-based approaches.
  • Empower sellers who previously worked the room to boost their virtual presence, so they deliver the right story at the right time.
  • Enable sales to deliver content that holds buyers’ attention and inspires action.

Sales managers might be the missing link to your sales enablement success. “Get sales management onboard” is the primary response from sales enablement practitioners when asked about their biggest challenge. It’s also one of the key findings from our research during the Sales Enablement Annual Conference this past year and aligns with the many practitioners we speak with every day.

Effectively enabling your sales managers is vital to the success of your sales enablement program. Successful adoption of a sales enablement program requires sales manager support and involvement before you initiate your programs for sales reps. Sales managers are essential to this process and need a holistic view of sales enablement programs to provide impactful support to sales reps.

In this webinar, we provide you with a sound framework to get sales management support for sales enablement programs - an essential practice that many organizations overlook entirely and one that others still fail to execute well.

  • Explore why sales manager support is critically important. Sales Enablement supports the sales team to move buyers to a decision point. While individual sellers are a primary customer, the sales managers are critical stakeholders as you seek to elevate their team’s performances.
  • Share the tactics BTC uses internally to gain Sales Management buy-in (How we create value and effectively enable our Sales Managers, Where our clients have success and areas they have challenges, How to effectively incorporate a sales manager framework within your organization)
  • Discuss why managing change can be a hidden challenge. If you create the best Sales Enablement program in the world, and no one uses it, does it help your business? As humans, we are mostly risk-averse and will not embrace change unless we have to do so. Your Sales Manager’s support is a critical lever many overlooks to incentivize the new behaviors sales enablement is trying to bring into reality.

When you’re creating or expanding your sales enablement function, securing executive buy-in and sponsorship from the c-suite is essential to effectively building a sustainable sales enablement program to scale. Regardless of whether you're in a startup, mid-market or enterprise business, you must demonstrate value and ROI as well as define the future state of your program.

Although sales enablement is gaining traction in the business arena, for many organizations it’s not clearly defined or misunderstood. Sales enablement practitioners must provide executives with the purpose and benefits of an enablement program to create adoption and drive growth.

In this webinar, Hugh Redford, RVP, Commercial Enablement from Seismic and Christopher Kingman, a senior-level sales enablement practitioner and leader from the Sales Enablement Society, will provide you with a roadmap to help communicate and demonstrate the value of a sales enablement program that aligns with your executive’s desired strategic objectives.

You will learn how to:

  • Develop a defined sales enablement strategy based upon the needs and expectations of your executives
  • Align your program to both short-term and long-term goals and objectives
  • Clearly define your program and outcomes
  • Speak the language of your executive audience
  • Develop short-term wins to quickly scale your sales enablement program
  • Communicate ROI in more ways than just revenue
