About The Sales Playbook
Sales is hard, there are targets to hit, leads to generate, prospects to nurture, time pressures to close deals, steps, stages and actions to complete, the CRM to update, meetings to attend and the list goes on.
Sales Playbook is here to educate, motivate, inspire and entertain sales professionals from entry level to senior leadership. It provides insightful content through articles and tips to help support daily sales activities covering the whole sales cycle, including prospecting, qualifying, demonstrating, closing and retaining business.
Our articles and frameworks provide senior level leaders with insights on how to create and maintain a high level playbook which can build a solid foundation for onboarding new hires, designing successful career paths and providing essential guidance on day to day activities that allow sales teams to thrive.
We entertain with sales memes, videos, quizzes and puzzles along with motivational quotes to boost morale and keep sales professionals actively pushing themselves to succeed.
Our mission is to make sales great again! When sales is done wrong it can be the worst profession, but when sales is done right it can be the best!
If you’re an organisation that would like to implement our Sales Playbook, frameworks or if you’re a provider who would like to partner with us please get in touch to discuss.
