WOW! We are only in August 2019, but this Sales Enablement blog already had more visitors in 2019 than in all of 2018 or in all of 2017!
Sales Enablement seems very hot as a search term. (Most of the traffic for this blog comes from organic Google search.)
LinkedIn users with Sales Enablement in their job title
I track the number of LinkedIn users with Sales Enablement in their current job title. 3-Nov-2019, LinkedIn had 10,268 users like that globally!
That is a new all time high. However, that number actually includes many employees of Sales Enablement SaaS software vendors. Nevertheless it tripled since August 2015 when I started tracking it.
This blog turned 10 years old in 2019. See the archive going back all the way to 2009.
I’m always looking for new ways to show the entire market size and the percentage breakdown of all the market players.
I see the market reaching $3Bn USD in annual revenue in 2020, but only if counting some of the revenue of the really large players in software that bought out smaller Sales Enablement players or those big players who offer free/freemium tools that could be used for Sales Enablement.
Very interesting to study are the vendors that are publicly listed such as Bigtincan Holdings Ltd (ASX: BTH). They have to publish their revenue numbers and organic versus inorganic (acquisition) growth.

I just added the following vendor, but probably only a small fraction of their revenue of $11M should be counted for the Sales Enablement SaaS market.
