TOP REVIEWS FROM ACCOUNT MANAGEMENT & SALES FORCE DESIGN
The course is brilliant and highly informative, the assignments interesting and you have to concentrate BUT the peer grading system is poor with long delays to get peer reviews done
Good insights for beginners. Nonetheless, I'm waiting for other people to provide their work in order I can review them since 4 days. It's a lot of useless daily actualization.
The voice of the host of the course is a bit monotonous but the content is good so it kept my attention focus throughout the whole course. Recommended course
This course basically helps me to understand sales, marketing concepts and improve analytical skills in sales field and how to work as salesperson.
