We interviewed and asked 7 industry leading sales executives their advice on how they put customers first throughout the sales process at their particular companies.

As VP of Sales for Lesson.ly, Conner and his team care a lot about customer success and work to ensure the customer is always at the core. Because of the importance placed on customer success, Lesson.ly has identified 3 specific ways that Conner and his sales team are involved in customer success.
The customer always comes first throughout the sales process at Lesson.ly and Conner makes sure his team is trained well on this by using repetition. Conner explained that with a team of sales professionals, it comes down to training them well in controlled environments and using positive reinforcement when the customer is put first. Sharing things like one off compliments from prospects with the entire team helps to reinforce the value.
“Customers drive our product roadmap. They help align marketing and sales by helping us really better understand the challenges we’re solving for them, in their own world. Our sales and marketing teams often use messaging that comes directly from our customers, so meeting with them regularly and having a strong pulse on how our customers are doing is key to our company’s success.”
When giving advice to other sales leaders about how to keep customers at the center of the sales process, Conner finds it important to tell stories of moments when sales reps go above and beyond for customers. “Public praise reinforces what is right, in the midst of pressure and quotas,” said Conner. “At the same time, giving reps autonomy to put customers as the hero is important. There’s no perfect blueprint and every rep will do it in their own way, if given the opportunity.”
