Launch of Sales Community envisioned to provide much-needed resource for tech sales professionals

Crises, such as the current pandemic, are difficult times, but they can also be catalysts for innovative new ideas.

It was during the COVID-19 disruption that Randy Seidl (pictured), an experienced tech sales professional, conceived a plan to create a community of like-minded thought leaders who could help his profession. That insight led to the launch of Sales Community LLC in September.

“If you think of any other industry — restaurant, hotel, lawyers, landscape — they have user groups,” said Seidl, founder of Sales Community. “Even technology companies have user groups. But within the larger field of technology sales enterprise, there’s really nothing like this that exists. It’s crazy.”

Seidl spoke with Dave Vellante, host of SiliconANGLE Media’s livestreaming video studio theCUBE. They discussed Seidl’s research in determining whether his new organization would have value and the various resources that Sales Community will provide.
