Top Sales Influencers in SaaS

After our recent Top 10 SaaS Podcasts for a First Time VP of Sales, I figured it was only fitting to include a list of our top SaaS sales influencers, leaders and companies we recommend following. Here’s our unranked list to follow for insights, tips, learnings as well as how to motivate and lead your team. If you’re not following these people and companies – start now!

Now…this post has been a draft for far too long. Mostly because I went back and forth on trying to decide whether to write a dedicated summary of each account/person. I finally decided – better done than perfect. I figure if you aren’t familiar with them below, you can click on the link and research why I included them on my Top Follows in SaaS list.
