Nearly one in eight jobs in the U.S. are in sales, but it’s a tough field to succeed in.
While stats vary by company, some studies show that just 20% of a company’s sales force delivers 80% of the revenue.
A strong sales team will have smooth and effective hiring and onboarding processes, provide constant feedback, be collaborative, and form a foundation of trust.

How to Create a Great Sales Team Name
Should you choose to create your own sales team name, keep the following tips in mind as you brainstorm and select the best option:
- Get inspiration from jokes. Humor and puns will motivate your team by giving the group a fun and energized vibe. You can create a pun from a standard sales term or use sarcasm to reflect one of the more ridiculous elements of your work. Note that although it’s good to use humor, it’s best to keep your team name work-appropriate if you’re in a professional setting — avoid offensive or crude jokes.
- Think about what motivates your team. A motivational team name is an excellent option for a sales team. It can help your team members stay positive and engaged. Choose a single inspirational word or a short phrase that serves as your team’s motto. To find the option that’s genuinely motivational for everyone, ask your team members to submit their choices and put the final winner to a vote.
- Create a team name using words unrelated to sales. Think of ordinary words with more than one meaning that could also apply to sales. Any word or phrase that is meaningful to your team can be used to create your team name. Think out-of-the-box and get creative! A unique team name will set your sales team apart from all the others.
- Use alliteration. As you can see with many of the examples on our list above, an easy way to create a cool team name is to use alliteration. After coming up with some words that describe your team, like “strategy” or “charisma,” think of words you could pair with those that start with the same letter. Names like “Charisma Crew” and “Strategy Sultans” are short, catchy, and easy to remember — and depending on the words you choose, they can be very light-hearted and fun, too.
