Product Knowledge: When you are appearing for an interview, you should have proper knowledge about Salesforce.

Prepare For Selling: You can face a virtual interaction with the prospects or the buyers to whom you are going to sell your products. Study and be prepared on all the products. You must approach your prospects in persuasive ways so that the potential customers can become actual customers.

Effective CMS: You should practice an effective Customer Management System (CMS) by using various tools offered by These tools will surely help in improving the sales activity. You can use the Salesforce ant migration toolkit for applying a good CMS method in your organization.

Determine Your Metrics: The selling activities are based on number games. You should clarify your objectives before taking part in the game. What amount of money do you want to make through the selling activities? Will you get a commission based payment? If yes, then how much commission are you going to earn for each sale? How many meetings will be required to close a sale proposal? For making an appointment, how many points of contact will you require for a single meeting?

List of Prospects: You should be ready with a list of prospects. You should be well aware of information about the clients. You should also be well informed about your competitors. If you want to introduce a contact session with a new client, you should mail the client with a brief introduction of your organization and how it works. You can also attach further information in your mail. You can inform your prospects about the latest webinar or seminar held by your organization.

Schedule Calls: To enhance your sales activities, make a regular schedule for calling your clients. Some companies may keep a SalesPower day a week for appointments, sales calls and warm up calls. The other days are kept for face to face contacts. Other companies may perform 100 calls on a daily basis and fix 10-12 quality appointments every week. Therefore scheduling is very important, whichever company you join for your future career.

Win-win Situation: Always keep your calls in a win-win framework. You will surely be able to close your deal by benefiting both the parties. Never think of 'getting one over' on your client. Just think in a way your client will also think.

Persistence: This quality is very important and distinguishes the winners and the losers in the job market. You should always be positive and persistent in your job. You may go through various rejections during your career but persistence is the only skill that will never break you down.

Prepare yourself with a positive approach and show interest in the finished products of your organization. When you are communicating with your prospects, ask them for their valuable feedback. If you are not successful this time, you can definitely improve by working on their feedback. So, if you want to accelerate yourself in Salesforce jobs, just move forward by taking the help of the Salesforce toolkits.
