Launch has been recognized as one of the “40+ Sales Experts You Should Follow On Twitter” by “The Sales Operations Blog”
According to the blog’s author, “There are a good number of Sales Experts worth following on Twitter. They produce interesting, relevant, sales related Tweet content on a regular basis which I frequently RT. And their content is not self- serving. They may have occasional links to their own blogs or webinars, but they are not blatantly selling their products or services. Instead they are helping to serve the sales community as a whole.”
