50 Must-Know Heavy Hitters: Winners of the Sales Hacker Top 50 Awards 2017!
In January, we announced a new initiative called The Sales Hacker Top 50 Awards.
The Sales Hacker Top 50 Awards are an effort to show some love to the actual reps and practitioners on the front lines. They don’t often get the widespread recognition they deserve, since most other online sales awards often become influencer popularity contests.
During the 6 weeks of open voting, over 5000 votes were placed. It was incredible to see the audience rally around their peers, and the first version of this initiative.

*Rules and Regulations
Each voter was allowed to vote once per category and must have used a valid business email address. Votes by Award Committee Members count as 5 votes. Votes by internal team members or external junior level employees count as 1 vote. Votes by external Director/VP/C level colleagues count as 3 points. Votes were then tallied up.
We then made sure that the top 10 would be compiled of the top 5 men and the top 5 women, not just the top total 10.
In the future, the nomination and voting process will be more intuitive. 2018 was our beta test and we think it worked well! We’re looking forward to building on this in the future.
