+20% More Won Deals With Training & Coaching for the Account Executive Team

Updated: Jun 12, 2023


Increase in Overall Revenue with Sales Training


“We hired Kickscale to train and coach our Sales Account Executive Team with state of the art sales tactics. As our team was new to many sales topics, we wanted to enable them. We did that via Kickscale’s online training modules and group coaching & workshop sessions.


The team learns all necessary skills (e.g. sales qualification, objection handling, demo meetings, effective conversations, closing) to constantly improve in sales. Since we started to work together with Kickscale our deal closing rate improved by 20%.”

Sebastian Schwelle | CEO & Co-Founder ShopStory



Overview - Initial Situation and Challenges

  • Revenue potential of the sales team was only used up to 80% with missing sales training, coaching and enablement

  • Limited training help from experts to improve team which resulted in a lack of sales experience

  • Shopstory thought about hiring a coach, but they are typically too expensive


Before implementing Kickscale, Shopstory's sales team operated without any formal sales training or coaching. The team members had to rely on their own experiences and self-taught tactics to navigate the sales process. The lack of years of experience in sales led to slower growth and slowed down the development process of the sales team.


At this stage, it is challenging to maintain a high level of motivation and to realize their full potential. Structured trainings and mentorship through Kickscale was therefore very welcome.


While Shopstory considered hiring a coach, the cost and inability to cover all the necessary topics made it an impractical solution.


Situation Now with Kickscale

  • The Kickscale sales playbooks and training modules for various topics increased closing rates by 20% in average across the whole team due to better qualification, objection handling and the famous closing question.

  • The sales performance increased after using Kickscale only 2 months because the team spends time to get better and the team sees an investment in them

  • All training modules are highly relevant to B2B SaaS companies like Shopstory

  • Online learning and additional coaching and workshops make the perfect offering to constantly improve

  • Kickscale brings in different coaches for different topics to have always the best expert in

  • Training content is very valuable and you feel the experience of all coaches within the Kickscale solution

Kickscale went beyond just providing training materials. They organized remote and on-site group workshops, creating an interactive learning environment for the Shopstory team. These workshops incorporated role-plays and practical exercises to reinforce the concepts covered in the playbooks.


By simulating real-world sales scenarios, the team gained confidence and improved their skills under the guidance of Kickscale's experienced coaches.

Kickscale's unique approach of bringing in different coaches for various topics ensured that Shopstory received the best expertise available.
