Partner Co-Selling Certified Sales Leader

Pavilion’s Partner Co-Selling for Sales Leaders course paves the way for innovative B2B sales strategies, equipping sales leaders with essential tools to navigate an ever-evolving sales environment where traditional direct selling methods are becoming less effective. Five years ago, the number of touches needed per opportunity for cold outbound ranged from 200 to 400. Today, that number has skyrocketed to 1,000 to 1,400 touches per opportunity (Jeremy Donovan, Insight Partners' EVP of RevOps & Strategy).

This course delves into the practicalities of B2B co-selling, offering a scalable, end-to-end process that integrates seamlessly across Sales, Partnerships, Marketing, RevOps, and Customer Success departments. Regardless of the scale or type of your co-selling partnerships, this course is designed to guide you through building, deploying, and scaling an effective B2B co-selling program.

  • Joint opportunity qualification,
  • Co-sell playbooks, and
  • Co-sell plans

Co-Sell Roles, Ops, and Scale
