The question I’m going to answer today is simple, How do I become a Salesforce Consultant?

To become a Salesforce consultant you need to combine theory with practice. Putting acquired theoretical knowledge into practice allows to solidify these expertises.

For the theoretical part, the best way is to become a certified Salesforce administrator. Indeed, the Salesforce Administrator certification is a prerequisite for many consultant-type certifications, such as Sales Cloud Consultant, Service Cloud Consultant, Non Profit Cloud Consultant or Education Cloud Consultant.

To pass the certification, you can use Focus On Force (a paying site but reasonable in terms of price), but also the official content via Trailhead or Apsynergy Learning, specifically for French-speaking consultants.

Salesforce also maintains the official study curriculum for the certification: the “Exam Guide” whose links are provided in the description. You have one Exam Guide per certification. These guides are the basis of the topics you will need to master for each certification.

For the practical part, you can quickly do some volunteer work for associations that use Salesforce. Salesforce is used by associations to :
manage fundraising (donations/donors)
manage association projects
manage services to beneficiaries.

This is how I started my career as a Salesforce consultant.

Other possibilities to start on the practical side and if it applies to you: apprenticeship, internships or directly a job as a freelancer, in permanent employment and/or remotely.

Practice is a must. Example: Nothing is better than importing, updating or exporting data via this tool to learn how to use dataloader.

Specialization
Once you’ve gained some experience, you’ll need to find your own niche to become a go-to Salesforce expert applied to a given domain.

This won’t stop you from doing more general Salesforce assignments, but when a specific need materializes, your profile will more easily catch the eye of Salesforce customers and partners.

That’s it! I hope to have answered your questions, ask them in the comments and we will answer them. Thanks and see you soon!

First element of answer: the demand is strong and constantly increasing.

The demand exceeds the supply, it’s simple I am contacted several times a week for 10 years for positions in the Salesforce universe. The demand is high, salaries are competitive and employers are flexible: many opportunities in Remote, Freelance or Permanent. So it’s easy to choose the right work style and get a competitive salary in your job pool.
Competitive remuneration and evolving salaries are the consequence of this high demand.
Over 10 years ago, these reasons led me to Salesforce. Ten years later, demand continues to grow and Salesforce is now deployed on every continent and in every language.

Second element of the answer: the cost and accessibility of training

Innovation at Salesforce doesn’t stop with their technology and the invention of the Software as a Service business model. The Salesforce community is very active, and you’ll find many caring people in the ecosystem. These strong values are reflected in the training tools that are available for free.

The third element of the answer is that the Salesforce model is sustainable. It’s an established technology that continues to expand.

Since its inception, Salesforce has generated virtually unparalleled growth. In 2021, Salesforce will again generate astronomical growth for a company of its size: 24% to reach a record revenue of over $20 billion. 90% of the 500 largest companies (the “Fortune 500”) say they will use Salesforce in 2022, it was 83% in 2017!
I invite you to type in google “salesforce economic performance” to see for yourself. The consequence of this exceptional performance is to have visibility on the years to come and to be able to say with confidence that Salesforce technologies will continue to be strongly used in the years to come and therefore that the demand for qualified resources will continue to be fueled by the many existing customers and the new customers to come.

The last element of the answer I want to address is the sustainability of a Salesforce career, how it will evolve over the long term.

By 2020, Salesforce had already made 62 acquisitions for a total of $49 billion. Each acquisition is reflected in a new integration, a new cloud, new features: Marketing cloud, Salesforce….

Each acquisition represents new opportunities for certification and specialization for a Salesforce professional, who can then evolve his or her career path and specialize in topics that affect them.
