1. 5 Tips for Salesforce Adoption (from a CRM Newbie):

The first article in this week’s list gives a couple of tips regarding Salesforce adoption. While some of them (or even all of them) might look pretty obvious to most of you, it’s the writing of the article that really does it for me. As team leaders, managers or CEOs we always have to think like a newbie. Try to feel what the “new guy at work” feels, especially when it comes to the platform we’re using daily.

3. Reading Your Prospect’s Mind With Content:

One of the best blogs out there in the CRM world is Salesforce’s ever helpful blog. Loaded with content, their experts always try to bring something new to the table, providing you with great insights. This time, my favorite article from them deals with the deep connection between the content we choose to put in our websites, blogs, ads etc. and a prospect’s opinion of your company or product, and eventually his\her decision. Great read. (Written by Andrew Davies)
