A Day in the Life of a Sales Professional

On the way into work you check Salesforce on your mobile app to see who you need to follow up with today. You dive in and begin responding to some client questions that came in over night.
You hop on a promising sales call, double checking your notes about the client beforehand. After the call you update the status of the deal so the progress can be reflected in Salesforce before your next team meeting.
After Lunch
It’s demo time! A client is curious about a new product feature so you hold a virtual product demonstration to show them around. A teammate has built a customized version of the product specific to this client’s needs so the customer is impressed with how personalized the demo is!
You close a big deal and celebrate! You get to ring the “sales alert” bell that sits on your boss’ desk to celebrate these occasions. Everyone around the office stops and claps and asks you about your deal.
End of Day
You respond to a few more emails on the journey home. You don’t waste your commuting time and thrive on doing business from your phone.
