What it means to Be a Salesforce Advocate

It has been my pleasure to be part of DES 2016 Madrid and part of Salesforce Essentials 2016 Madrid, and Barcelona — That was a fun part of May / June this year, and the best of it is not just being in front of an audience to talk about what you have achieved so far and how great the products you are reviewing are, but the best is the journey where you learn and achieve something to talk about.

Becoming and advocate is not an easy path, it is about mastering at a product, service, tool, knowledge area…, so people listen how they can ease their journey thanks to your expertise. But expertise does not come easy. Before and while achieved (or sort of), it is the time to learn, watch, listen and re-imagine what is possible. Yes, spend a huge amount of hours digging the Internet, being curious and thinking out of the box.

But what it really means for Salesforce to have advocates?

Well, Salesforce is self called the Customer Success Platform and for them there is nothing else better than a customer speaking on their behalf and how the did achieve success.

For Salesforce, their advocates are their best promotional assets.
