Why is Salesforce so important to know? How do I get into Salesforce? How much
money can I make with Salesforce? So if you’re out there and really want to know
what Salesforce is about, how to get into this career, and how to really learn
Salesforce, check out this ebook that MinuteAdmin put together for people
just like you. Let’s get started by going over what we’ll talk about in this e-book.
The first thing we’ll talk about is what Salesforce is. This will answer the
question that everyone has when they first hear about Salesforce. The second
thing we’ll talk about in this ebook are salesforce projections.Which explains
where Salesforce is headed in the near future. The third thing we’ll talk about

jobs. The fourth thing we’ll talk about are Salesforce salaries. Your earning
potential with Salesforce. The fifth thing we’ll talk about is how to learn
salesforce for free! The sixth thing we’ll talk about is the first Salesforce
certification you will need to get. The seventh thing we’ll talk about is the team here
at MinuteAdmin. And last but not least we’ll talk about learning Salesforce
with MinuteAdmin. We’ll talk about the training courses that we offer so you
can excel in the Salesforce world. So what is Salesforce? Salesforce is a CRM
platform in the cloud. The cloud means all your information can be accessed
anywhere in the world as long as you have a username and a password. CRM
stands for customer relationship management. Think of a CRM as a big
warehouse for your data to live inside of. “Why are CRM’s so popular you ask?” Well
every company needs a place to store information about their customers. It
would be kind of crazy to have a ton of customers but not have any information
about them. A CRM keeps track of all their information. Let’s look at an
example of a company that would need to use a CRM. A modeling agency works with
different brands and models. The modeling agency needs to keep track of which
brands they’re partnered with. They also need to keep track of all the models in
that agency, so they buy Salesforce and use it to keep track of all their brand
partnerships. They also use it to keep track of all the models they have in the
agency. So now that we know what Salesforce is, let’s talk about a
Salesforce projection that will get you excited.
There’s expected to be 3.3 million new Salesforce jobs by the Year 2022. Meaning
people with Salesforce skills are going to be in high demand for a very long
time. This is why we’re giving you this ebook. You could be the next person with
Salesforce skills to get a high paying Salesforce job. Speaking of jobs, there
are three Salesforce job roles that stand out above the rest as the most
popular jobs in the Salesforce world. The first job role and the most popular one
is a Salesforce administrator. There’s no coding required as a Salesforce
administrator, and the average salary is $95,000 per year. The second job role and
the next most popular job in Salesforce is a Salesforce developer. You’ll be
coding a lot as a developer. The average salary for a developer is $125,000 per year. And the third Salesforce job role is a
marketer. If you’re someone that loves marketing and you have a knack for
technology, there are tons of job opportunities out there waiting just for
you. The average salary for marketers with Salesforce skills is just over $85,000 per year.Those are just a few job roles and salaries in the Salesforce
world you can get over 20 Salesforce certifications. So depending on the
amount of experience you have and the number of certifications you have, you
can potentially make way more than the average salaries we just saw. There’s
also another factor that plays into how much you end up making in the Salesforce
world. The TYPE of certification you get… You’ll likely make more as a certified
Salesforce technical architect than you will as a Salesforce administrator.
