Salesforce is an incredibly powerful tool, and with great power comes a great learning curve. If you want to learn how to better leverage Salesforce, you’re in for some long nights of studying difficult technical documents, hours searching for relevant videos, and expensive classes that will take you away from your desk. We’re here to help, as are loads of other amazing bloggers and Salesforce community members, but we tend to skip the basics and get down to what excites us. If you need to learn as much as possible as fast as possible in a hands-on, structured way, you need to check out Trailhead.
You may have already heard of Trailhead, but let me know tell you what it is and just how cool it is.
