Selling Power is pleased to announce the launch of a new President’s Club, powered by Spiro. Eligible contestants can enter here: http://ow.ly/Xw8Be.
This is the first year Selling Power and Spiro have teamed up to bring this opportunity to salespeople. The Spiro app helps salespeople make more money by increasing win rates, deal sizes, and number of opportunities, all via automated, data-driven reminders and recommendations that sync with CRM, email, and calendar.
Selling Power founder Gerhard Gschwandtner says that the launch of a national President’s Club represents a unique and exciting challenge for salespeople in any industry.
“Great salespeople are never satisfied with the status quo,” says Gschwandtner. “They always seek new challenges and new tools that can help them reach their goals. We believe this nationwide contest will empower top-selling salespeople to leverage the motivational potential of Spiro to achieve greater levels of success.”
To be eligible for the President’s Club, salespeople need to be one of the first 2,000 salespeople to download and use Spiro as their personal sales assistant. (Current Spiro users can update to the most current version and opt into the President’s Club.)
The contest runs between January 22, 2016, and May 31, 2016. The salesperson who has sold the most (measured in US dollars) wins the bookings grand prize. The grand prize winner, determined by data collected by Spiro, will:
- win a cash prize of up to $5,000,
- receive a complimentary pass to attend the Sales 2.0 Conference in San Francisco on July 18-19, 2016, where the prizes will be awarded,
- be featured in Selling Power magazine and on the Spiro blog.
There is also a $3,000 prize for the most won deals and a $1,000 prize for the highest usage of Spiro.
According to company representatives, Spiro is not a “soul-sucking, time-wasting, data-entry, enterprise app.” As a personal sales assistant, Spiro automatically updates salesforce.com with a few screen taps. It will also help salespeople confirm upcoming sales calls and meetings, keep their close dates in the future, and recommend when salespeople should stop working on deals that are past their prime.
“This is a highly agile, highly valuable sales-enablement tool,” says Gschwandtner. “Salespeople who start using it now will have a serious leg up on their competition.”
