Corporate Marketing Services vs. Strategic Sales
Are Sales and Marketing like the Offense and Defense for the Patriots? Players with two different sets of skills supporting each other with a common goal.
Or, are they like Liz Taylor and Richard Burton... On again - Off again.... From newlyweds to jilted lovers and back again.
Responses to a recent LinkedIn survey overwhelmingly agreed that most organizations have some degree of friction between Sales and Marketing - and all agreed that bridging that gap is critical for success.
What they didn't agree on is who is owns:
- Lead Generation Methods
- Marketplace Research and Data Appending
- How we improve Customer Service
- Do we need Direct Mail Marketing
- Do we need Promotional Products
- How do we maximize our CRM
This blog will try to bring together these diverse opinions and find some common ground from which we can all benefit.
