22 May Introducing SalesLoft — Helping you engage with prospects and customers on their terms
And now a word from our sponsor… We’re thrilled to welcome SalesLoft to the Sales Confidence family. Let’s find out more about them.
One of the best things about running Sales Confidence is being able to partner up with other trailblazing SaaS organisations. Since we started in 2017, we’ve had associations with great businesses such as Notion and Cognism. Now, it’s time to welcome a new raft of partners. In the first of a series of articles, we’re going to focus on SalesLoft.
Who is SalesLoft? What is their story? How can this partnership bring value to you, our valued Sales Confidence follower? Let’s find out.
What is SalesLoft?
SalesLoft is a sales engagement platform. Its purpose is to help you understand your customers’ needs and provide value to them in a way that will resonate.
SalesLoft helps you initiate and track conversations with your customers across every platform:
· Social touchpoints and anywhere else
By bringing everything together in one place, SalesLoft makes it easier for salespeople to keep track of every development across the entire territory. SalesLoft prioritises tasks, so nothing slips through the cracks. Plus, it syncs with your Salesforce, so nothing goes missing. Its comprehensive analytic tools help you see what’s working and what isn’t.
When it comes to:
SalesLoft is invaluable.
SalesLoft is helping superb organisations such as Facebook, Stripe and Zoom get to know their customers. It’s based in Atlanta, employing around 500 people worldwide. The last funding round was a Series D in 2019.
One of the things SalesLoft does that sets them apart is the annual Rainmaker sales conference in Atlanta. I was lucky enough to be there this year and I can tell you, there’s nothing like it. I picked up so many golden nuggets and met so many stars of the industry. Not only that, I learned a few secrets that I’ll be putting into effect at SaaSGrowth this summer!
Meet Ollie and Sean
Sean Murray and Ollie Sharp are SalesLoft’s top sales leaders. Sean is the CRO and Ollie is the VP of Revenue for the EMEA region. They are two of the absolute pioneers in this industry, so it was great to sit down with them to seal our partnership.
Sean is based in the States and has had a long career in technology sales. He made his name at CEB (now Gartner) and was also VP of Global Sales at Xactly. He’s a great coach and mentor; I know many people who have dramatically improved their game while working with Sean.
Ollie is over here in London. Like me, he’s a veteran of the recruitment industry and LinkedIn, so we always have a lot to talk about when we see each other.
What’s great about the guys at SalesLoft is that they are a tech platform, but they know it’s still about the person behind the tech. When so many of today’s tech tools look the same and perform the same jobs, the skill, personality, professionalism and conversation of a salesperson make all the difference.
It’s a pleasure to welcome Sean, Ollie and SalesLoft into the Sales Confidence community. I hope we can share knowledge to develop new ways of putting our customers first, which is of course, the most essential aspect of success in sales. I know the new salespeople in the Sales Confidence community can learn a lot from the way SalesLoft do things.
Let’s get together
I hope you’ll come to one of our great events soon and meet me and all the Sales Confidence partners in person. You can find our schedule of events and grab tickets when you click here.
