Nomination Title: The Vengreso 10 Steps to Launching a Digital Sales Program is Like No Other…

Tell the story about this nominated product or service (up to 650 words). Describe its function, features, benefits, and sales to date: REDACTED FOR PUBLICATION

The B2B buyer has gotten better at buying faster than the salesperson has at selling.

According to CSO Insights, 53% of salespeople made quote in 2017, a five year low. In 2018 54% made quota.

But salespeople don’t like to go through training. And many sales leaders who admit they need to provide digital sales training for their team too often focus on tools and technology training. That doesn’t work.

Vengresolaunched as the first company in the U.S. to deliver a full suite of digital sales training services focused on helping sales teams create more conversations with qualified buyers through three connected digital selling training solutions:

Content for Sales Enablement
Profile Optimization
Digital Sales Training & Coaching

Vengreso uniquely enables the modern salesperson to:

-Leverage relevant content with their buyer
-Transform their LinkedIn profile so it reads through the lens of the buyer
-Develop the skills needed to engage, connect and feed their network
-Create more conversations with interested decision makers

Vengreso’s 10 Step Digital Selling Program is unlike any other filling a void in the market. What makes this 10 step program so unique is that training is step #7.

1. Identify goals and success metrics
Behavior change is critical to digital sales transformation. We update the CRM with KPIs tied to goals.

2. Buyer identification and mapping
Identifying buyer types by vertical industry and role enables organizations to more effectively reach potential clients.

3. Develop a content for sales strategy
Content is mapped to the buyer personas and associated with their journey and pain points.

4. Choose digital sales tools
The right digital sales tools are mission critical along with the skills required to drive engagement and more conversations.

5. Develop customized playbooks
Customize playbooks for LinkedIn profile makeovers, messaging, success stories, scripts and search strings that match all buyer personas.

6. Create buyer-centric profiles
A buyer-centric LinkedIn profile transforms a resume style profile into a resource on LinkedIn building credibility and trust.

7. Digital sales training
The first six steps prepare for training. Digital sales training sessions are customized by sales representative type.

8. Drive adoption through gamification and recognition
It’s imperative to motivate salespeople to put their acquired skills into practice through gamification and recognition.

9. Measure and adapt for improvement
Review KPIs weekly with a focus on improvement and updating playbooks.

10. Coach for sustained success
To create long lasting behavior change, salespeople must receive ongoing coaching.

Additionally, in our Selling with Video training program, sales reps are taught first the mindset of shooting video and why decision makers want to consume video. Then, reps are taught an 8 step Selling with Video program that demystifies video recording, distribution and promotion.
