Top SalesAI Prompts for Sales Leaders and Sellers

Our Chief Revenue Officer, Laura Palmer, often talks about having different “knobs” to turn to grow revenue, make her teams more effective, and ensure we are providing real value to our customers. But how does she even know what the knobs are? Enter SalesAI. Laura can simply go to SalesAI (embedded inside her CRM), open the assistant, and get answers to her pressing questions about accounts, opportunities, and contacts.

At first glance, this sounds amazing. But we often see leaders and AEs get stuck once they have an empty search bar in front of them. Analysis paralysis. Too many options. So we’ve created this handy prompt guide for sales leaders and sellers to prompt better and understand the full spectrum of insights they can access across their business with generative AI for Sales, specifically, SalesAI.
