High-Profit Prospecting: Simplifying the Process Between Marketing and Sales
We can have all the leads we want, but if we don’t turn them into customers, then we’ve wasted our time and valuable resources. The challenge is that what Marketing deems important isn’t always what Sales feels is important. The blame game between Sales and Marketing is one we can’t afford to continue. It’s time to bring the two together and be focused on a common goal.
In this presentation, you’ll learn what leading global companies are doing to simplify the sales and marketing process. In turn, you'll learn how to bring far more value to customers and, best of all, be able to charge more money. You’ll leave with specific steps you can put into practice immediately to help you drive results you’ll see as soon as this quarter.
