“The traditional way of motivating sales reps through compensation alone is no longer the most effective method,” said Austin Rolling, CEO and co-founder of Outfield. “We believe a community that allows you to compete with others in a mild way is the motivation people need to help push them forward, and Closer’s Coffee is the perfect environment for that competition.”
The content on Closer’s Coffee includes written and video content and features the site’s signature show “Closer’s Coffee”. Written content is provided by a pool of contributing authors comprised of more than 30 industry professionals. Content categories include:
