Reputable Certifications for Sales?

What's the take on earning various Sales certifications online? Do you find these impressive when looking at a LinkedIn profile/Resume?


Some examples include Aspireship's SaaS Sales Foundations, HubSpot's Inbound Certification, JB Sales' Filling the Funnel / Driving to Close, etc.

Iโ€™ve often wondered the same thing. ย Unfortunately, for sales in general there is not a formal body that is recognized for certification. ย There are certain industries that are regulated and have certification like insurance or financial services, but other than that it really doesnโ€™t exist.

If youโ€™re a solid rep who hits quota the certifications you mention might give you a leg up and who your ambition to learn more and better yourself when compared to your counterparts.

However, if youโ€™re not hitting and have a poor track record no amount of credentials are going to help you.

Iโ€™m certified with HubSpot, Drift, Salesforce, SalesLoft, Outreach, and DiscoverOrg/ZoomInfo. It doesnโ€™t really mean shit unless I go to another job. So, if you donโ€™t plan on leaving within cert expirations, it could be worthless. Iโ€™m certified due to the nature of my role.ย 

personally, if Iโ€™m hiring, Iโ€™d love to see that the person Iโ€™m interviewing supposedly knows their shit enough to be certified in it.ย
