Syllabus

  • Introduction to Sales Enablement
    • What is sales enablement? And why is it important? In this lesson, you'll learn the basics of sales enablement and see a real-life example of how it can transform an entire organization.
  • Aligning Your Teams Around a Unified Revenue Goal
    • For a business to grow, marketing and sales teams need to have the same definition of success. In this lesson, you'll learn how to create a goal that will motivate both teams and get them working in the same direction.
  • Developing a Lead Qualification Framework
    • Inbound strategies fail when leads generated by the marketing team don’t match the expectations of the sales team. In this lesson, you'll learn how to set up a lead qualification framework that will satisfy both teams.
  • Holding Your Teams Accountable With an SLA
    • Having a unified goal and lead definition is great, but you need a system of accountability to make sure marketing and sales are both pulling their weight. In this lesson, you'll learn how to hold your teams accountable using a service-level agreement (and what to do if either team falls behind).
  • Maintaining Alignment With Smarketing Meetings
    • In-person meetings are a great way to keep people informed, but you’ll need more than just status updates to keep the sales and marketing teams aligned. In this lesson, you'll learn how to run meetings that solve problems and improve outcomes.
  • Using Buyer Personas in Sales
    • If you try to accelerate your sales process without knowing who you're selling to, you might accelerate into a dead end. In this lesson, you'll learn how to identify the people your marketing and sales teams should be focusing on.
  • Using Jobs to Be Done in Sales
    • Knowing who you sell to is only half the battle. You need to understand why people buy from you. In this class, Clay Christensen of Harvard Business School explains how to use the Jobs to Be Done framework to gain a deeper understanding of what motivates your buyers. It might surprise you.
  • Creating a Hero Statement
    • Buyer personas define who you market to; Jobs to Be Done defines why people buy from you. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to combine the two into a single statement your whole company can rally behind.
