General Questions

What is SellingBrew?

SellingBrew is a little like an industry association, a little like a trade publication, and a little like a research firm.

As former practitioners ourselves, we know just how difficult it can be to find timely, relevant, and actionable information about what strategies and tactics really work in B2B sales environments. That’s why we created The SellingBrew Playbook. Our team curates proven practices and lessons learned from practitioners and industry experts all over the globe and publishes the insights we glean in an ever-expanding library of tutorials, guides, case studies, interviews, research reports, tools and diagnostics available here at SellingBrew.com.

What's The SellingBrew Playbook?

As an interactive portal, the Playbook delivers more than a traditional, printed publication ever could, with educational content in text, audio, and video formats. Playbook subscribers enjoy having an arsenal of best-practices and timely research at their fingertips—on-demand, 24×7, and accessible from any computer or mobile device via the Internet.

Based on the needs and requests of our subscribers, the Playbook’s ever-expanding library of tutorials, guides, case studies, interviews, research reports, tools and diagnostics covers a range of relevant sales operations topics–from pipeline analysis, close-rate optimization, and customer lifetime value modeling, to sales performance measurement.

Do you offer consulting services or on-site training?

We don’t sell sales consulting. Our business is focused on providing the information and insights that can help our subscribers overcome challenges and become more successful.

While we don’t offer consulting, we’ve worked with many reputable consulting and technology firms and can make recommendations based on your industry and needs. SellingBrew subscribers can contact us at support@sellingbrew.com for recommendations.

Can I signup for your free weekly update newsletter?

If you’re not already receiving our weekly update newsletter, we encourage you to sign up–it’s free.

But our weekly update won’t give you access to everything. The SellingBrew Playbook is a must-have resource for anyone looking to build and develop a more effective B2B sales operation. You’ll get real-world case studies, step-by-step tutorials, diagnostics, expert interviews, and how-to guides delivered in text, video, and audio formats so you can learn in the style that’s best for you. Learn more and subscribe.

Do you have sponsorships or advertising opportunities?

We do. SellingBrew is a unique community focused exclusively on driving B2B sales effectiveness. Reaching thousands of sales operations decision-makers and practitioners every month, SellingBrew is an ideal marketing channel for sales technology and services providers. And beyond the opportunity to advertise, we also have options that allow you to become part of the conversation.

Questions Before Subscribing

How do I become a subscriber?

It’s simple. Signing up just takes a few minutes–you pay with a credit card and get immediate access. Just head to our subscribe page to see your options and get started.

Do you offer group or team rates?

We do. You can purchase annual multi-user subscriptions to The SellingBrew Playbook for up to 15 users through our website at significant savings compared to our individual annual subscription. See the prices and subscribe.

An enterprise subscription is an excellent deal if you have a large team or would like to provide access to the SellingBrew Playbook to many people within your company. For $4999/year, you get an unlimited number of users within your company as long as they’re within the same email domain. Every user gets full access to the Playbook and all of the content. Click here to sign up for an enterprise subscription.

Can I purchase a subscription for someone else on my team?

You sure can. If you’ll be accessing the subscription as well, purchasing a multi-user subscription will give you immediate access. You’ll also get a special link to pass along to the other users so they can setup their accounts and get access.

If you’re just handling the purchase but won’t be accessing the subscription itself, just complete the subscription order and send us an email at support@marketingopsjournal.com to let us know. We’ll setup your account to only manage billing and send you a link so that the other user (or users) can create their login for access.

Can I share my log in and account with others?

Nope. Each account provides an individual license and our system actively monitors accounts to detect and alert us to shared use. If you’re interested in sharing content with friends or colleagues, it’s easy and cost-effective to add additional users so they have their own account and license.

I currently get the newsletter, but is the content in The Playbook different?

The weekly SellingBrew newsletter is full of helpful insights and tips on B2B sales operations—but content in The Playbook goes into much more depth. The Playbook provides long-form articles, case studies, tutorials, diagnostics, interviews, training courses, webinars, how-to guides as well as videos, and companion worksheets. Bottom line, what you see in the newsletter is just the tip of the iceberg of resources that are available to subscribers.

Is everything included, or do we have to buy certain things separately?

Everything is included with your subscription—the training webinars, the expert interviews, the tutorials, guides, and tools, as well as our unique Sales Ops Help Desk feature. And, of course, you’ll get access to all of the new resources that are being added on a regular basis.

What will happen after I order? How will I get access to The Playbook?

During the ordering process, you’ll be asked to create a SellingBrew account. After you place your order, you’ll immediately have access to The Playbook through the secure subscriber area. And you can use your username and password to access The SellingBrew Playbook from any computer or mobile device.

My team would like to see how it all works---do you give demos?

We’re happy to set up a demo so you and your team can get a better understanding of all that The SellingBrew Playbook has to offer. To schedule a demo, just send an email to demos@sellingbrew.com and our support team will work with you to find a day and time that works best.

I just want to try it out---do you offer a free trial?

Sorry–we don’t provide a free trial. But we’re happy to set up a live demo so you can see everything you’d get access to as a subscriber. Just send an email to demos@sellingbrew.com and our support team will work with you to set one up.

Can we pay for our multi-user subscription via purchase order or company check?

Credit card payment is preferred as it provides you immediate access to your subscription. But we understand that some companies need to pay with a bank transfer or check. For an additional 10% charge, our team is happy to accommodate this payment option for any multi-user or enterprise subscription. Just send us an email at support@sellingbrew.com to let us know how many users your subscription will be for and we’ll send along the details.

How are subscribers notified of the new resources and content as they're available?

The weekly SellingBrew email newsletter will alert you to the latest resources and content as they’re added. You’ll also receive special email alerts about upcoming online trainings.

If we'd like to see more information on specific topics, do you take requests?

We love to hear from our subscribers. In fact, many of the resources available in The SellingBrew Playbook are from requests that our research and editorial team receives. As a subscriber, you’ll not only be able to submit topic requests, but you can use our Ask the Network feature to pose questions to our network of experts.

Are the online training sessions recorded and accessible to subscribers later?

If you can’t attend a live training session, it’s not a problem. All of them are recorded and made available a few days after the live event.

Can I pose specific sales operation questions to your research team?

Yes you can. This is one of the great benefits of being a SellingBrew Playbook subscriber. Our in-house researchers and analysts wade neck-deep in the topic of Sales Ops as a matter of course, regularly gathering and curating best practices. You can tap into them and get their insight and advice on your specific questions and challenges. In a few business days, you receive a response back.

Do you offer the SellingBrew Playbook in a printed format as well as digital?

The SellingBrew Playbook is only available in our digital, web-based format. With new content added each week, a printed format just can’t keep up. And by being digital, we’re able to offer subscribers much more than a printed publication is able to—including videos, audio interviews as well as companion worksheets and presentations.

Subscriber Support

With a multi-user subscription, how do we sign-up other members of our team?

Once you’ve completed your multi-user subscription order, you’ll shortly receive a unique link that you can pass along to the other intended users. It’s a simple registration form that you can fill out yourself or send to your colleagues. You’ll also easily be able to monitor sign-ups and access within your account.

How do I register for the online trainings that are included in the subscription?

Your SellingBrew Playbook subscription gives you full access to our dashboard, from which you can access the various resources and features. From there, you can see details on the upcoming training session with instructions on how to register.

Do you offer professional certification or continuing education credits?

At SellingBrew, our mission is to provide up-to-date research and insights on driving a more effective sales operation. We don’t offer professional certification or continuing education credits, but we can recommend 3rd-parties that offer those services.

I've forgotten my username or password. Can you help?

Sure.  Just click here and enter your username or your email address and we’ll email you a link to create a new password.

I need to cancel my subscription. What do I need to do?

If you need to cancel your account, please do so at least one business day prior to your monthly or annual renewal date. We cannot prorate or refund our service if you do not cancel your subscription before your renewal.

You can easily cancel your subscription by sending us an email to support@sellingbrew.com.  We’ll just need your account username, email address and order number.

Can I see who else is a subscriber?

Sorry. To protect our users’ privacy, we don’t expose subscription information to others without their express permission.
