San Francisco, California (PRWEB) April 23, 2015
LinkedIn isn’t just for finding a job anymore. It has become one of the most powerful tools for sales lead generation. Still, most sales teams are not leveraging LinkedIn’s full potential due to a lack of standardized training. Today, The Sales Foundry is announcing that its unique LinkedIn sales content is now available on the SalesHood sales productivity platform.
Launched as the Social Selling Boot Camp in 2013, this program was created for mid-market companies. Through this new partnership with SalesHood, LinkedIn training is now available to sales organizations of any size.
“Small businesses were asking for a more affordable solution and enterprise companies need something that would scale into the thousands. An online platform solves both requests.” says Sales Foundry CEO Kurt Shaver. “And yet typical online training solutions don’t work for Social Selling because they don’t provide the interaction needed to build strong social habits.”
SalesHood is a proven peer-to-peer platform for sales managers and salespeople to get up to speed faster. For SalesHood CEO Elay Cohen, this new partnership adds another important pillar to the SalesHood community.
“Having run Sales Productivity at Salesforce.com, I learned how important it is to have sales managers lead peer-to-peer onboarding and ongoing development. The Sales Foundry’s LinkedIn sales training content is a great addition to the SalesHood community.” says Cohen.
Anneke Seley, Social Selling consultant and author of the book Sales 2.0, observes, “Companies like IBM and ADP were early-adopters of social selling a few years ago. Now, this combination of content and platform puts advanced LinkedIn sales skills within reach of any company.”
Key benefits of the Social Selling Boot Camp on SalesHood include:
- Modular How-To Videos and Exercises for “Bite-Sized” Learning
- Special Coaching Content For Sales Managers or Sales Trainers
- Administrative Support for Registration and Progress Tracking
- Mobile-Ready For On-The-Go Learning via Smartphones and Tablets
