Factor 8 is pleased to announce it has been included on Selling Power’s Top 25 Sales Training Companies 2022 list https://bit.ly/3KMFPQt.
“Factor 8 is proud to be the only sales training provider included on Selling Power’s ‘Top 25 Sales Training Companies’ list for two years in a row that built their foundation 100% on virtual sales,” said Ted Martin, CRO Factor 8. “In the past, companies have emphasized the value of field sales over their digital or inside sales counterparts. Due to the pandemic, companies began moving to remote environments, which caused them to realize the value of virtual sales. This is a win for all of us who have built our careers in inside and virtual sales.”
Factor 8’s winning application highlighted the incredible success of their virtual sales training programs and their ability to adapt to their customers’ needs in the constantly evolving corporate landscape. With many years of experience in virtual sales, Factor 8 quickly became a strategic partner to various B2B and B2C companies, helping their sales teams adjust to and excel in the virtual and hybrid selling environments.
“It’s feedback like this from our client partners that fuels my team. We’re passionate about changing people’s lives by increasing their confidence and success at work. This recognition shows us that our efforts are working,” says Factor 8 Founder & President Lauren Bailey.
According to Selling Power publisher and founder Gerhard Gschwandtner, sales training is more important than ever. The economy has shifted significantly due to inflation, Covid 19, the war in Ukraine, shortages in supply and the emergence of new learning technologies.
“Sales training companies had to adjust in the last year,” says Gschwandtner. “Each of the sales training companies included on this list was able to pivot quickly to deliver best-in-class, engaging sales training both virtually, and in person. Their efforts and expertise helped their clients reach and exceed sales goals and decrease onboarding time in a highly challenging economy.”
All companies on the list submitted a comprehensive application that included a detailed listing of their offerings for both training and retention, innovative solutions, their company’s unique contributions to the sales training marketplace, and their ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The main criteria used when comparing applicants and selecting the companies to include on this year’s list were:
- Depth and breadth of training offered
- Innovative offerings (specific training courses, methodology, or delivery methods)
- Contributions to the sales training market
- Strength of client satisfaction and overall client feedback
To evaluate applicants for the list, the Selling Power team surveyed and considered feedback from over 340 clients of the applicants. Here is a brief selection of comments from their clients:
- “They have a great methodology that is easy for the field to consume, and they go above and beyond to make sure their clients implement successfully and get a high ROI.”
- “Our sales managers that went through the training said it was the best training they had ever received as part of a sales organization.”
- “The prep work, training, and follow-up after training are all world-class.”
- “Outstanding, key to our sales transformation.”
- “Really great people to work with. Professional and eager to work as real partners.”
- “Not only is the training content excellent, but the delivery and interactivity of the sessions really help participants absorb and apply the techniques.”
Selling Power magazine editors say CROs, sales VPs, and sales enablement leaders can leverage this list to find the right sales training partner to help salespeople succeed during social distancing and remote working.
