(Hi! You’ve reached a topic specifically for folks participating in the Program Manager Launch Certification. If you’re a Gong Program Manager and would like to learn more about getting certified, please click here!) Hello Program Managers – welcome to the Gong Community! As we talked about back in the Academy, being Gong certified means that you’ll visit the Community regularly to connect with other Gong users, help answer questions about Gong, learn from each other, and share your own ideas and best practices. Another awesome aspect about the Community is that it connects you and other Gong customers directly with Gongsters (i.e., the folks who work at Gong). We pop in all the time to share news, answer questions, provide tips and tricks, and participate in the conversations our customers are having. To that end, your first assignment for your Launch Certification is to answer at least one of the following questions: What is at least one thing you want to learn during the Program

If you’re a Gong Program Manager and would like to learn more about getting certified, please click here!) Congratulations, Program Managers — you’re nearly complete with your Launch Certification! Between what you’ve learned in the Gong Academy as part of your certification and the practical knowledge you’ve picked up while onboarding and implementing Gong at your organization, we know your brains must be bursting with invaluable Gong knowledge. So, this brings us to your second (and final) Community assignment for your Launch Certification. Please share your answer to one (or both of) the following questions: What is the most important thing you learned during this Launch Certification? What is your #1 piece of advice for a new Program Manager who is implementing Gong? Thanks for taking the time to not only share with us here at Gong what you found valuable during your c

Providing a product is not enough. You need to enable your customers to master it.Google’s Adwords certification was a game-changer for advertising careers. Why? Because it enabled users to wield Adwords with mastery—not just proficiency. There’s a world of difference between proficiency and mastery. Adwords created masters, leveled up careers, and let employers see the certification as evidence of superior talent. Creating a new category takes lots of market education. And elevating your stakeholders’ careers is a great way to get them excited about investing in their own education.That’s why we launched Gong Academy: our comprehensive set of courses that allows customers to realize the full potential of the Gong platform. We also recently added the Gong Certification Program, which allows users to uplevel their skills and gain a competitive professional edge. Within days of launching, we saw over 450 people enroll in the certification program. Providing product education and certific

A lot of times, I need to listen to my reps’ gong calls in the evening after I put the little one to bed. I like to leave lots of comments in the calls for coaching purposes. However, this means I have reps getting emails about my critiques late in the evening which I worry can stress them out. I really don’t want them to see the comments until working hours start again.
Hey y’all - come join me and @Elin Hammenfors as we continue our series of the EMEA Gong meetup.Whether you're a Raving Fan or prospect, you're invited to joinus, and the wider Gong EMEA community as we discuss all things connected to Revenue Intelligence, including:Making the most of Gong in your revenue org (and ensuring your stack is giving you great ROI) Convincing senior leadership & getting executive buy-in (for Gong or any other tech) Encouraging and fostering a coaching-led culture (using Gong or in any other form)But in reality NOTHING is off-topic. It's a 45-min call, with usually 6-12 participants, meeting up virtually to chat & provider a peer-to-peer support group.The format will vary slightly with each call but we welcome & encourage active participation and paying it forward.
Gong’s Raving Fans have always been central to our success as a business. That’s why we’re investing in spaces where Raving Fans like you can connect, learn, and share best practices with each other. It’s a way to improve your use of Gong and boost your career. I’m proud to share that our Raving Fans have now launched three meetup programs:Women in Revenue: Co-led by Katrine Reddin, Head of Sales at Commsor, and Ashley Coghill, AE at Seismic, who met in the Gong Community. Gong in EMEA: Co-led by Vinit Patel, CCO and Co-Founder of Filtered, and Elin Hammenfors, Global Sales Enablement Manager at Quinyx, who met at the first EMEA meetup. (Seeing a trend? Meetups are beneficial!) Data in Gong (for Program Managers - request to join): Led by #Gongfamous Community member (and leaderboard leader!) Andrew O’Driscoll, Founder of Growment.What are Gong Community meetups? They’re virtual and in-person monthly gatherings led by Gong Community members who want to learn from each other, share t
Forecasting isn’t just about calling a number — It’s about getting accurate data and creating an action plan.The problem is - most leaders can’t see deal hurdles until it’s too late (...and the deal may already be lost)!That’s why my favorite thing to do every morning is to look at my Deal Board – the RED FLAG deal warnings allows me to see potential risks identified directly by prospects across my entire team’s pipeline, so I can instantly see where we need to focus in order to win. This also shows: -which deals are stalled (and why)-who to needs to get involved -which deals are beginning to ghost us I spend about 30 minutes every day on my MEDDPICC Deal Board (...which automatically inspects our pipeline) to move deals forward and forecast based on data I trust. A little bit of truth serum (eg. VISIBILITY) can turn your deal (or entire quarter) around! Happy selling! #UnlockReality
A few weeks ago, @Ken Edwards shared an exclusive look into how he uses Gong at Uberflip to boost forecast accuracy and Deal management with the Gong Community. Now, his story is being featured on Gong’s LinkedIn! 👏👏👏 Let’s show Ken some Gong Community love by liking his story on LinkedIn. Go Ken! 🥳
If you’ve attended a Gong Community Women in Revenue meetup, then you know this half of our fearless meetup-leader duo. 🦸🏼♀️@Katrine Reddin is the Head of Sales at Commsor and your go-to gal for all things community, women in tech, and women in sales. Fun fact about Katrine: She loves designing (and eating) charcuterie boards! A few highlights from our interview: Katrine met her Women in Revenue meetup co-leader, @Ashley Coghill, right here in the Gong Community! She believes in the power of a purpose when it comes to Community. “People will work hard for money, harder for other people, and hardest of all for a shared cause.” If Katrine wasn’t the Head of Sales at Commsor, she’d be a Veterinarian! Watch our full interview above and connect with Katrine on LinkedIn.
Hello Ladies! @Katrine Reddin and I are excited to host the next Women in Revenue Meetup on 6/24 - hope to see you all there! In the meantime we have a little giveaway for you 🙌 At the last meetup, we very briefly talked about a quote from “Machiavelli for Women” - and we want to give you a chance to get a free copy of the book on us! *We hope to discuss the book a bit on the next meetup: for a bit of a teaser, here’s an excerpt: “Power is an interesting concept. Although it is the main focus of Machiavelli's book, he never explicitly defines it. So what is it? What is this thing Machiavelli is obsessing over? Power doesn't exactly have the best reputation. Say the word and it conjures up images of men in expensive suits behind giant desks, screwing over investors; General Patton barking at a bunch of faceless troops that America will not tolerate a loss; the Eye of Sauron crushing little Frodo. Power has become, I think, synonymous with the ability to force people to do things. If s
