11 Motivational Videos To Inspire and Spark Your Sales Team

Many companies are looking to hire experienced and self-sufficient salespeople who won’t be too much of a hassle. Others seek to employ young specialists, teach them everything and grow them for their business.

In both cases, sales managers are provided with appropriate working conditions, trained as necessary, and specific results are expected. But most executives and account managers neglect motivating their team to achieve more.

Why is it so important?

Every company wants to grow and increase its revenue, but it can’t be possible without growing of every employee. And self-development is always about making additional efforts, which not everyone is ready for.

So, it would be best if you did something to motivate your sales team, such as showing the most motivational videos and discussing them in team meetings.

Why are sales motivational videos so effective?

Not everyone in a managerial position knows how to give a motivational speech. And it is OK; they can use ready-made recordings of the speeches of famous and successful people who can motivate and inspire others.

Why are videos better than articles? According to Hubspot, “90% of information transmitted to the brain is visual, and visuals are processed 60,000X faster in the brain than text.”

Plus, the text cannot convey emotions, intonation, facial expressions, and other non-verbal signals, which also significantly impact us. Therefore, it is the video that will make the most significant impression and will be able to cause an appropriate emotional reaction.

Another advantage of motivational videos is the time you need to watch them. Such videos last up to 10 minutes on average and contain the most concentrated and valuable information.

Let’s take a look at 11 powerful motivational videos that you can show to your sales reps.

Steve Jobs: Love what you do

Steve Jobs can be considered one of the most motivated and goal-oriented entrepreneurs of all time. Most people believe that his constant need for perfection drove him to work hard on projects, but his greatest motivation was his desire to leave something behind that would change the world.

He also sincerely loved what he was doing, so he was convinced that all truly successful people also loved their work.
