The right sales training and enablement are critical for success in your Partners’ sales campaigns. This means investing time and money to bring new sales people up to speed and keeping existing sales people sharp. Partner sales teams must understand the latest technology trends and challenges that shape their customers’ decision making. Channel Maven Consulting’s Partner Prospecting Guides can help take your Partners’ sales to greater profitability.

The Prospecting Challenge

Whether by phone, at a conference, in an elevator, or by email, sales people have precious few minutes to connect and build credibility with a new prospect. Often – a thoughtfully worded question or observation is the difference between getting a meeting and joining the pile of discarded business cards. This means sales teams must understand the market dynamics surrounding technology solutions as well as how those dynamics impact a customer’s business and the unique challenges they face. Today’s sales people must be problem solvers for their clients. –  having knowledge of how to solve problems is paramount.

Too much time is spent in training sessions and taking online sales and technical certification. Not enough time is spent distilling knowledge and tactics into a summarized useful format, that sales people can use while on the phone or preparing for sales calls.

What are Partner Prospecting Guides?
