What Can You Expect from Salesforce Plus?

You’ve heard of Disney+, Paramount+, and ESPN+, but here’s one more “plus” for the count: Salesforce+.

‍Salesforce Plus (or Salesforce+) is a streaming service Salesforce created, inspired by your favorite platforms. With the rise of streaming platforms worldwide, we saw it coming – especially now that it’s so convenient for anyone to watch their favorite content anytime, anywhere.

And while you may not find Disney movies in Salesforce+, you’ll find content that will help you become an industry expert, episode after episode. What will you be watching, exactly? Salesforce training videos? No. We have Trailhead Academy for that. Instead, you’ll watch massive productions like original Salesforce series and live events.

The best part is that you don’t necessarily need to be a Salesforce customer to watch Salesforce+. All you need is a Trailblazer account to enjoy free, unlimited, and open-to-everyone virtual learning.

In today’s article we’ll tell you all about the benefits of this innovative streaming platform, what to expect, as well as the ways it can take your business to new heights.

Let’s get started!

The Benefits of Salesforce Plus

If you’re an ambitious business owner, you probably know the feeling: you sit down for a relaxing movie session, but a thought is always on the back of your mind. “I should be doing something productive.”

What if we told you you could now do both at the same time? Salesforce Plus can transform the way you do business by allowing you to sit back and watch entertaining business content as you would any movie, documentary, or TV show.

You can filter your preferred content related to your role or industry, so your feed is bursting with only what’s relevant to you.

Did anyone say “live events”? Users absolutely love them, so Salesforce brought major conferences like TrailblazerDX, Connections, and, of course, Dreamforce, the world-famous annual event that brings the global Salesforce community together.

You can watch them live or catch them later – it’s your choice!

Just like Netflix and Prime Video have original series, Salesforce has its own production, too! You can watch original series inspired by real companies, their successes, failures, and insights. Series like How I Solved It!, Leading Through Change, Small Business Revolution, and many more.

For anyone looking to learn directly from seasoned Trailblazers, you can! Gain first-party insights on the background of Salesforce technology and discover how experts make the most of Salesforce to build successful companies.

With Salesforce+, you can stay on top of the latest in your industry without poring over tedious reports. The platform adds new videos every single week, just like Netflix constantly updates its vast content library. You’ll never run out of enriching content to watch!

Finally, the platform fosters collaboration and networking opportunities. You’ll likely watch like-minded professionals with whom you’ll want to connect – and maybe even collaborate. Besides getting access to a wealth of collective knowledge, you’ll get to know several names you can add to your professional network.

What to Expect

You can expect anything you’d expect from a popular streaming service: an extensive, customizable content library you can browse and watch as much as you like. (Minus the subscription fee because it’s free for everyone.)

Also, you can definitely expect a front-loaded “Featured Episodes” section to check out the most popular and promising content. Are you watching later? Add your favorite picks to your list to keep your go-to content one remote click away.

All of the content is categorized. So not only can you browse events and original series via the platform’s navigation, but you can also view different “collections” sorted by role and industry.

You should expect nothing less than content that’s hot off the press. A lot of the business books you read, regardless if it’s a revised and updated edition, don’t feature case studies from an ever-evolving digital world. But Salesforce Plus does!

In an interview with Salesforce Newsroom, Colin Fleming, Salesforce’s Senior Vice President of Global Brand Marketing, stated the following: “You’re going to see content in Salesforce+ that’s about the here and now, not how XYZ company did it in 1999, but how leaders have found new ways of success in this new, all-digital, work from anywhere world.”

From success stories to thought leadership articles, the platform offers a diverse range of resources to cater to different interests. Whether you’re looking to upskill, gain industry insights, or explore innovative strategies, Salesforce Plus has the content you’re looking for.

How to Get Started

By the way, you don’t need to be a Salesforce customer to start watching content for free. You only need a free TrailBlazer ID to unlock full access to all Salesforce+ shows and events.

This ID provides a single profile for all Salesforce services. It also helps you control your preferences and access various Salesforce sites easily.

To get yours, just go to Salesforce+ and click “Get Started” to sign up at no cost. You can use your Google, Apple, or LinkedIn accounts to speed things up. If you’re already a Salesforce user, you can log in to Salesforce Plus using your existing credentials.

Next, the platform will guide you through an initial (and speedy) setup process. And that’s it. You’re now free to explore the myriad features and content available on Salesforce Plus.

Can You Create Streaming Content on Salesforce Plus?

While Salesforce has its own dedicated and growing team of writers, producers, and editors, creating content as a user on Saleforce+ is a viable prospect.

“We’ll have a Trailblazer channel dedicated to co-creation with our Trailblazers, hearing their unique stories, getting hands-on with the technology. (…) There’s something for everyone and that’s part of our mission going forward,” said Fleming.

You can already call yourself a Trailblazer if you have a Salesforce Plus login. In this case, there might be future opportunities for you to share your stories inside the platform.

Tips for Maximizing Your Experience on Salesforce Plus

Again, to maximize your free access to a full library of videos, you should become a member by signing up with a Trailblazer ID – if you want to watch Salesforce events, specifically.

However, if you just want to watch the original series, you don’t need a Trailblazer account! Could this be the most easily accessible streaming platform in the world?

Now, for an even better experience, we recommend pre-registering for all events on Salesforce+ to get personalized journeys, reminders, and recommendations. For example, if you want to register for live and on-demand events like Dreamforce, this registration is vital to staying in the loop.

Finally, check Salesforce Newsroom for new content, events, and updates. If you pre-register for your desired events, you’ll get a notification anyway. But you can still keep up with SF news if you don’t want to miss a beat.

By staying updated, you can ensure that you don’t miss out on valuable resources and opportunities as they come along.

How Can Streaming Content Help Your Business Grow (Versus Consuming Your Content Any Other Way)?

In order to grow their business, marketers, founders, and leaders have to constantly update their knowledge. There’s no way around it. It’s a fast-moving business world, so every opportunity you have to upskill yourself or refresh your expertise counts – whether it’s for an hour or just a few minutes a day.

It’s like reading the Wall Street Journal: not only will you feel smarter, but you’ll have access to useful, timely information you can apply to your business right away. Note that this information won’t come from just any source but from the most notable thought leaders in your industry.

Of course, different people learn in different ways. Some read reports. Others read email roundups. Some, however, despite having a deep desire for learning, don’t have the time to catch up with their industry.

And then what happens? They’re restricted to a couple of daily bullet points and statistics when they could be fitting so much more content into their day – in so much less time and in a more engaging way!

So don’t let prevalent time constraints stop you from growing your business. Consume skill-building content by watching it in your spare time, then apply it in the following days, weeks, and months.

Salesforce+ Can Be Your Biggest Competitive Advantage, Starting Right Now

Netflix and chill? Make it “Salesforce+ and upskill!” It’s no surprise that Salesforce is proving to be a whole lot more than a CRM platform, offering a wealth of benefits, content, and resources. And by leveraging Salesforce Plus, you can keep up with industry experts and drive better results for your business.

It’s free. It’s unlimited. We would argue that this is the easiest way to grow your business. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned user (or not a Salesforce user at all), this platform offers a world of opportunities to learn, connect, and succeed. So get comfortable, grab your popcorn, and become the most well-informed person in the room. One episode at a time, in your own time.
