For effective selling, education is key
Arnie Becker of CDW shares his secrets

What makes a company successful? There are dozens of potential answers, answers that vary from industry to industry, from department to department, and from one employee to another. And while it's true that factors like culture, branding, and profits impact the success of the company, none of these can be made possible without a strong, knowledgeable salesforce. 

This is one idea that Arnie Becker, Senior Aggregation Infrastructure and Managed Services Specialist at CDW, believes to be the most critical asset to any business. From hiring people who understand the problem your business solves to providing the tools and training to equip all employees to express the benefits of your solution, knowledge is indeed key. 

So, how do you make this happen in your business? Becker explains his top three actions in his latest guest post on our blog.
