So, join me on this journey to learn Salesforce administration.
Many Years ago, Organizations used to save their customer information on paper or an excel sheet. Making sense of this information collected became cumbersome. Technology companies found a solution to this by creating a software solely for managing customers called Customer Relationship Management (CRM).
This application has helped so many organizations globally save all their customer information, purchase history, contact information, improve and automate processes and also make sound decisions.
The customer journey is a broad one. It starts from making enquiries about a product or service, purchasing a product after so much back and forth with the customer agent, making a complaint to the company after the purchase of the product, the company offering exchange or discount and so many activities right.
Now, a lot of software organizations do not have an application that can give a 360 degree view of the customer footprint. What some organizations do is to buy different smaller applications that can fix this problem and in turn integrate them into each other which can take weeks or months.
Salesforce as a Software and a service company has all this features on one platform and an organization can see all the information needed at a glance, make informed decisions and grow their business.
This has differentiated it from all other competitors in the game.
Salesforce helps you see your customer information at a glance and it can also be used across industries such as Sales, Logistics26, Manufacturing e.t.c.
Salesforce is not just an app, it is an entire platform and has built an awesome community over the years.
Salesforce encourages developers to build their own individual application, This now runs into thousands and has helped meet the needs of companies using Salesforce in different industries all over the world. These developers have created cutting edge applications that have made the Salesforce platform innovative.
These third–party developers are constantly creating cutting–edge technologies to meet the needs of a company, and this makes the Salesforce platform infinitely innovative.
Salesforce administrators are currently the most sought-after CRM professionals in the market, and they will continue to be in demand well into decades to come. Once an innovative company begins to use Salesforce to its fullest potential, it increases the automation processes of the company. Salesforce administrators are then employed to use the Salesforce platform to run the company’s automated business processes. This means that Salesforce professionals will continue to be the most sought-after CRM resource well into the future because more and more companies will continue to automate their business processes now and in years to come.
In the tech world today having Salesforce expertise together with how you can use your skills and knowledge to increase business revenue are interestingly more important to a company. That being said, to become a Salesforce professional your Salesforce certifications as well as any previous Salesforce work experience i.e. Volunteering with a nonprofit are what make recruiters drawn to you.
A junior person within the ranks of a Salesforce professional is usually someone who has less than 3 years of experience. From year 3 and on, a Salesforce professional becomes an intermediate or even expert–level resource, and once they get past year 5, it’s as good as getting tenure. A new person can expect around $55,000 – $70,000 a year, even without technical expertise or a college degree. Then, in the second year, that amount goes up to between $80,000 to $90,000, and in the third year, it will likely be at least $100,000 a year. Around year 5, you’ll probably tap out at about $130,000 to $150,000 as a full-time individual. However, if this person leaves the company and joins a Salesforce consulting firm, the income can be pushed up the $150,000 to $180,000 range. If perhaps they go into business for themselves and do freelance Salesforce consulting, that amount can go up to $200,000 to $300,000.
Does the idea of thinking about the way a business is efficiently managed or how one works appeal to you? How the buyer’s journey of acquiring new leads, building a relationship when a form is filled, a call is made or an email is sent? Does this intrigue you? Are you glad to understand how a product or service is sold and how follow up and support are provided afterwards?
If you think getting a better understanding or getting involved in these processes could be even slightly interesting, then you are great fit for a Salesforce career.

Most organizations sell products or services but they need to retain the customers they have acquired over time. A Customer Success Manager manages the customers an organization has acquired. For instance a software company like Loom is a video software you can use to record videos on your laptop and send to anybody on your team, utilizing the business version of Loom you are able to record a 40 minutes video, but the free version has a record timeline of 10 minutes but for Loom to retain revenue they need to encourage their subscribers to keep up with payments.
