One sales call that I sat in on sounded as if it were being conducted in a completely different language. It seemed like every other word that came out of the prospect’s mouth was a three or four-letter acronym. For sales and marketing professionals in any industry, understanding the language of the buyer is critical to their success. In order to get myself up to speed fast, and to help the company at the same time, I put together this acronym guide.I was amazed at how many acronyms I was able to think of off the top of my head, after just having worked with the company for a few weeks.
