I need coffee.

Ready-to-drink (RTD) tea and coffee market

The global RTD tea and coffee market is expanding and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.2% between 2022-2030 from an estimated $98.04 billion in 2021. Reasons for sudden growth include a health-conscious shift from sodas to natural tea or coffee drink alternatives, branding efforts, clear marketing strategies, and rising demand for tea and coffee-based energy drinks.

  • Learn more about the market and how a tea retailer used Salesforce to scale.
  • Use this angle: Focus on how Salesforce is a fully integrated tool that can help unify company processes by creating enhanced visibility, implementing scalable and robust marketing functionality, and maintaining a customer-first approach through supportive engagement.

E-commerce businesses

E-commerce was on a steady trajectory of growth prior to the COVID-19 outbreak, but the pandemic propelled the industry into overdrive and it hasn’t slowed since. E-commerce is expected to hit $5.5 trillion globally by the end of 2022, and it’s estimated that more than 263 million consumers in the U.S. shop online.

  • Learn more about e-commerce trends in 2022 and the future of commerce.
  • Use this angle: Focus on how Salesforce can help streamline the purchasing process, personalize the buying experience, and create a mobile-friendly shopping experience through Commerce Cloud.


Superfoods are nutrient-dense foods that offer a wide range of health benefits. The global superfood market is expected to reach $228.04 billion by 2026 with a CAGR of 6.77%. The rapid industry acceleration is due to a consumer shift towards a preference for healthy food consumption, increasing healthcare expenditure, and the rising geriatric population.

  • Learn more about the global superfoods market and how organic superfoods are still booming.
  • Use this angle: Focus on how Salesforce is a well-rounded solution capable of managing the sales process with ease, creating visibility into client data, implementing enhanced marketing solutions, and offering superior client experiences.


A bargain at any price

When it comes to a vendor asking a consulting partner for discounts for their mutual clients, the discount usually isn’t beneficial for any of the parties involved. Check out the video above for more on why focusing on value is a better strategy for everybody.
