Some key takeaways:

Last year, almost half of the people surveyed (47.9%) said they didn’t have a sales enablement team in place, and said they weren’t planning to introduce one within their company in the future.
When we asked the same question this year, the figure had decreased to 33.3%. While there’s still room for improvement, it’s a step in the right direction.
PMMs are stepping up to the plate
64.6% of product marketers surveyed said they own sales enablement at their company, a considerable increase from 2020 (23.4%).
Sales representatives require more motivation
When we asked how engaged sales representatives are on a scale of 1-10, the average response rate was 6.1, a decrease of 1.9 from 2020, when on average, respondents answered 8.
Key stakeholders aren’t loosening the purse strings
Almost half of the product marketers surveyed (46.4%) don’t have a dedicated budget for sales enablement at their company, with 54.8% saying they don’t think enough money is being invested to support the process.
