The internet is filled with knowledge, and YouTube in particular has evolved into a library of information. Top professionals in every field are constantly providing valuable insight, free of charge.
It is important to continually learn in sales, and a lot of learning can come from others in the field. When it comes to sales professionals to follow on YouTube, there are hundreds if not thousands providing quality information. Here are five in particular that everyone should consider checking out and following.
Brian Tracy is the man behind, you guessed it, Brian Tracy International. Sales training is just one of their specialties covered in the last 30 years by Tracy and his team.
It is hard to argue with his results and history in the field. He has consulted for over a thousand companies. He might be getting up there in age (72), but he has always been eager to learn new tactics and adapt on the fly.
Productivity is always a big thing for Tracy, and in his old age, it is more important than ever. His most useful video is probably “Tips to Structure Your Day” to maximize one.

Lacking the right type of motivation when it comes to sales? Grant Cardone is the perfect YouTube channel to check out. He is one of the top overall sales professionals online today.
His most well known video is “Stop Selling, Start Closing” and he has been able to have a ton of success with it. With the full version having close to 1.5 million views, the 53 minute video provides a ton of tips in a short amount of time.
Sales professionals videos on YouTube are mostly dominated by men, but there is a lot of valuable information out there coming from women as well. An award-winning author when not in front of a camera, Jill Konrath is one of the best keynote speakers in her area of expertise. Her specialty is focusing on practical and modern strategies to generate and close leads.
Her most informative video on her channel is “Stunningly Unused Sales Technique” because that type of information isn’t really out there elsewhere. She is a big proponent of always learning new things, but really, plenty of people can learn a thing or two from her.
Online, Gary Vaynerchuk shortens his name to GaryVee. He is a master motivator for sales professionals who need that extra push to attack each and every day.
His specialization is in marketing, as he has extensive history in that himself. The highlight of his channel? It has to be “6 Minutes for the Next 60 Years of Your Life.” He labels it as a rant, but in the video, he provides a ton of information. His personal channel has a total of 1.77 million subscribers.
He might not be the most well-known sales professional on YouTube, but think of Gitomer as an up-and-comer. He understands that sometimes on YouTube, a lot of people can drag points out and even use clickbait. He takes a no-nonsense approach to not only his videos, but sales in general.
Gitomer self-identifies as a realist. With the right attitude, anything can be achieved. While a realist, he is quick to point out that a positive attitude can go a long way to personal and sales success. Don’t have the right attitude?
