Top 10 Sales Resources for 2012

Openview Labs and SalesCrunch both published articles titled “Top 25 Sales Influencers for 2012” and “Top 50 Sales Blogs“. The lists undoubtedly contain some of the best sales professionals in the space and we follow all of them.

But while writing our “Step-by-Step Guide to Becoming a Sales Rockstar in your First 100 Days”, I researched and found so many more great resources that I figured were worth including.

Here is Ecquire’s addition:

  2. Spin Selling by Neil Rackham
  3. How to win friends and influence people by Dale Carnegie
  4. The Ultimate Sales Machine by Chet Holmes
