talentlms_sales_trainingWhen designing an eLearning course to boost your client’s sales performance, what is the first step that comes to your mind?

A. Who are the sales persons? How do I create training to teach them to sell better?

B. What is the client’s sales expectation in a given quarter or a month?

What option did you select?

talentlms_blog_competitionIf you chose TalentLMS for your enterprise e-learning needs you made the right choice (if we may say so). But to successfully sell it to your organization you need to convince two groups of people: end users and managers.

End users are your “students”. These can be new employees taking an orientation course or senior employees learning a new skill or process. In any case, they, and not their managers, are the ones who will be actively using your LMS platform.

General advice about running an e-learning service (some of which you can find in this very blog) applies to enterprise users too. Advice about course structure, graphic design, content guidelines and the like, for example, is still valid.
