Sales enablement 101

Sales Enablement Collective is a community of thousands of sales enablement professionals, all with one goal in mind - to showcase the role of enablement and elevate their peers within it.

Each year, our website receives tens of thousands of visits from enablement professionals of varying levels of seniority, from across the world, all looking to learn more about the latest innovations from the world of enablement, and how they can improve their own enablement skills and knowledge.

To feed our ever-expanding community of sales enablement professionals, we're always on the lookout for people just like you to share your expertise and help us explore the present and future of sales enablement.

If you're interested in sharing your insights and experiences with one of the world's largest sales enablement communities, then read on to find out how you can contribute to the SEC platform:

Write for us ✍️

Each and every month, 1000s of people make their way onto our site. That’s a lot of eyes and exposure for your article.

So, whether you want to write about crafting the perfect SKO, running an ultra-efficient onboarding program, best practices when implementing a snazzy new sales methodology, or anything in between, we want to hear more.

If you’ve got the insights, we’ve got the platform. Here’s how to contribute

Step 1: Submit your subject

Before you put your fingers on the keyboard, drop us a line and let us know what you want to write about. Some popular topics include:

  • Sales methodologies
  • Data, metrics, and reporting
  • Digital transformation and sales enablement tech
  • Sales enablement leadership
  • Sales enablement strategy
  • SKO
  • Sales training, coaching, and development
  • Case studies, use cases, and success stories

Step 2: Follow the rules

We’re a reasonable bunch and we don’t expect too much, but what we do ask for is:

  • Articles to be no shorter than 800 words
  • Any pictures included to be royalty-free
  • A picture to sit with your contributor profile
  • A short bio (200 characters or less)

Also, individual contributions shouldn’t promote your company’s products or services, or include backlinks to your company's site. For that sort of stuff, we have sponsorship opportunities. See below for these opportunities!

Step 3: Submit your work

Either send us a message on Slack, or reach us by email and remember to include the link/attachment to your article along with your profile pic and bio - if you’re not already set up as a contributor, that is.

Already published something awesome elsewhere?

Not a problem. With custom canonical links, you can still share it with our audience too.

Yawn 💤 time for the boring bits…

Image policy: We include images with every post. Stock photography will be chosen by our team and will be posted with your entry unless you have a particular image you wish to use. By including any photos, screenshots, or images, you consent to allow SEC to post this image with proper credit to you and/or the creator.

Link policy: Links in your post should be relevant to the story you’re telling and provide context to your audience. When referring to another article or piece of research, please use proper citations or links to the source material.

Syndication policy: We reserve the right to use any and all contributed content, with credit to any authors, in its entirety or portions for promotional purposes, including in social media, other blogs, or newsletters. SEC may choose to cross-post to Medium, LinkedIn, or other blogging services.
