Update on Memberships and Content

As Saalun, a product of Spiral Analytics, comes up to speed, we wanted to provide this update on our progress.   We have been working away on creating content, but still have a little work to do.

Content, Courses, and Sales Learning

As an e-learning solution, Saalun’s core product are courses which teach different topics of sales analytics and sales best practices.  We are leveraging the Thinkific platform for these courses.  You can bookmark saalun.thinkific.com as content will appear there as we release course content.

We are also using SoundCloud for our Podcasts.  Please head over to our profile page and listen to our free content.

We have also created a Slack group called “Sales Hangout” for our members. You can get access by purchasing a set of courses, a membership, or paying a one time fee.  For early access at a reduced rate, please send an email to our email address.

To further your productivity, we offer a variety of downloads in PDF and Excel form to help you stay organized.  From our Daily Sales Planner to the Quarterly Quota Tracker, our templates are meant to be printed and filled in.  The Daily Sales Planner, for instance, is a daily worksheet any sales rep could use to manage their day, focusing on what matters.

We feel these three platforms are a great way to start and provide an immersive experience for the sales professional wanting to further their career, be the best on the team or even an analyst wanting to learn the specifics of sales.

Memberships and Pricing

Sales analytics university offers a variety of pricing and plans to fit any budget.  From a la carte options like attending an individual course to one time fee access to our Sales Hangout channel on Slack, users can mix and match our content to build a custom experience.

Alternatively, for a flat monthly or annual membership fee, you can have access to all courses and content.  This includes our full suite of courses on our Thinkific channel, early access to podcasts, access to Sales Hangout on Slack and discounts on downloads.

While exact pricing is still being developed, we are happy to announce an early 2018 release of all content.

In the meantime, signup for early access mailing list and stay up to date on events, progress, and news.  We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Make It Your Own

While you may be picturing a car salesman with a nerdy tie and a high pressure manager, that is a bygone era.  From inside sales roles responding to warm inbound leads to the entrepreneurial style of an outside team, there is a role for you.   You can also choose what you sell.  From airplanes to office snacks, combine your passion for a product with the lifestyle and live the dream.

Many professionals we have worked with here at Saalun speak to the creativity they have in accomplishing their professional goals.  While quota goals are often supplemented by lead or new account goals, the variety of tools available allow you to create your own method of engagement, tracking, and time management.

If you love the rush of the hunt, the satisfaction of closing the deal, and building relationships with people, you are in the right place. Start living the dream.
