What is CRM?

CRM stands for Customer Relationship Management and is the collection of technologies that help companies streamline their businesses to be more efficient. This includes everything from marketing to leads, to selling products, to supporting customers and analyzing the data involved in those processes!

Why do so many companies choose Salesforce for their CRM?

Salesforce is for businesses what smart phones are for all of us. It streamlines their business, put everything into one tool, allows them to do things that used to take tens of hours with the click of a button. It's literally that impactful. This means more profits, higher margins and business expansion.

What is the long-term demand for Salesforce professionals?

Salesforce is "sticky". When companies use Salesforce it's very hard to leave. It can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to transition from Salesforce to another platform. The reality is that each year Salesforce is onboarding more and more customers which means more and more Salesforce professional jobs every single year.

What is the starting pay for new Salesforce professionals?

Entry-level Salesforce professionals can expect to make between $65,000 to $75,000 a year, even if they have never heard of Salesforce prior to getting certified. No tech background and no tech degree are needed at all. Individuals with tech degrees or business/tech backgrounds can attract first Salesforce salaries at $80k-$100k.

How important is a college degree for Salesforce professionals?

College has some bearing to getting a job as a Salesforce professional, but it is a secondary or even tertiary consideration. More important to recruiters than a college degree are the Salesforce certifications that you have earned, as well as any previous Salesforce experience you may have, such as volunteering with a non-profit. At that point, it is Salesforce expertise that is more interesting to a company, and how a candidate can use that expertise to increase the revenue for the business.

What does a Salesforce professional’s career trajectory look like?

A Salesforce career is one that is fast-moving because there isn’t enough Salesforce talent to meet the needs of an ever-growing demand.

A junior person within the ranks of Salesforce professionals is usually someone who has less than 3 years of experience.

From year 3 and on, a Salesforce professional becomes an intermediate or even expert–level resource, and once they get past year 5, it’s as good as getting tenure.

So, a new person can expect around $55,000 – $70,000 a year, even without technical expertise or a college degree.

Then, in the second year, that amount goes up to between $80,000 to $90,000, and in the third year, it will likely be at least $100,000 a year.

Around year 5, you’ll probably tap out at about $130,000 to $150,000 as a full-time individual.

But if this person leaves the company and joins a Salesforce consulting firm, they can push the income up to the $150,000 to $180,000 range.

And if they go into business for themselves and do freelance Salesforce consulting, that amount can go up to $200,000 to $300,000.

Ok, it’s clear that Salesforce can be a fun and lucrative career. But is it a good fit for me?

The first thing to consider is whether this is even something you want to be doing, something that you would even mildly enjoy.

Does the idea of thinking about the way a business works appeal to you?

How a business targets new leads, and how it nurtures that relationship whenever a form is filled, a call is made, an email is sent? How a business figures out if the lead is a good fit for its product or service? How that product or service is sold, and how support is provided after the sale?

If you think getting a better understanding or getting involved in that process could be even slightly fun or interesting, then you are great fit for a Salesforce career.

The other thing is, you need to make sure you understand the career path, and that you want to be involved in the tech space in general.

Then, join the free 5-Day Salesforce Challenge, where you’re going to get walked through exactly how to get set up on the free Trailhead training site by Salesforce, and how to dip your toes in and figure out your first steps.

And by the time you get to Day 5 of the Challenge, you will have a really good idea if you have a future in Salesforce.
