Here at Guru we’re huge fans of sales content that you can put to use right away. It must either be actionable, truly insightful, and/or add value for sales professionals. To compile our Weekly Enlightenment newsletter we primarily have sourced our content on Twitter.
But....With such a high number of sales-related accounts on Twitter, it has become a very noisy place. Especially so when you’re only looking for the most influential people and businesses to follow for the best sales practices, tips, and advice.
Now that we are 35 volumes deep on our Weekly Enlightenment newsletter, We've been able to weed out the good from the bad. We’ve carefully selected 11 of our favorite Twitter accounts to follow if you are a sales professional and looking to become more productive:
