The world of sales is changing at a faster pace than at any other any time. We're all LinkedIn to Twitter and utilising our time to achieve sales success in a way unimaginable to sales professionals of just a decade ago. If we contrast our roles, motivators and core to only four years ago I think we’d all agree that the shift has been huge.
It’s been four years since the ISMM partnered with Aaron Wallis to undertake the last sales survey and it was conducted in the undoubtedly tough times of Summer and Spring 2009. Now in a market with hints of optimism and a whole heap of new sales and marketing methodologies to add to our sales arsenal, the ISMM and Aaron Wallis are now launching the survey again to gauge how sales people are truly thinking.
The ISMM have partnered with Aaron Wallis and several other sales organisations to invite over 50,000 sales professionals to take part in the 2013 Sales Survey. With the aim to get response from over 1000 sales people across all levels thus giving us a true and accurate snapshot of what it is really like to work in sales in 2013. The research will feature in the ISMM autumn / winter edition Winning Edge magazine and other media.
If you take part in the survey, you’ll get the results, prior to them being launched to the media, so you can stay up-to-date with what’s happening, what’s winning, what’s important, what’s not, working hours, holidays, money – all sorts.
The confidential and secure survey is authoritative research, and previous survey information has been used by leading business schools such as the University of Portsmouth. It takes around ten to fifteen minutes to complete and of the sixty questions, just five are mandatory. In past surveys most participants commented on how enjoyable, and thought provoking, they found completing the survey. The questions are designed to be a mixture of work-related and life-related questions, and we hope that you enjoy completing it.
To thank all entrants we will enter you into a draw to win an ‘ultimate experience’ - a choice of over 100 experiences ranging from a 30 minute 'Tiger Moth' flight to an overnight golf break for two to a racing experience in a Lamborghini. You will also receive a free ticket to the launch of the survey on October 17th at the Successful Selling Conference 2013, Ricoh Arena, Coventry. This will be presented by Toby Perkins MP and will take place in Hall 4 adjacent to the main conference.
Thanks for taking part,
