6sense CMO Releases Second Edition
Today, Latané Conant, Chief Market Officer at 6sense, announced the second edition of her book, “No Forms. No Spam. No Cold Calls.,” a modern, must-have manual for sales and marketing leadership seeking to hone their craft and forgo the status quo by truly embracing their customers’ needs and habits. After the initial release of the book in 2020, Wiley, global leader in publishing, education and research, picked it up to distribute internationally. Over 15,000 first edition sales indicates the book’s intrinsic value and demonstrates the need to continue to help more teams with this expanded second edition.

“No Forms. No Spam. No Cold Calls.” shines light into an opaque business environment where an estimated $2 trillion in waste prevents companies from achieving predictable revenue growth. It is a step-by-step guide that will transform how professionals think about marketing and selling in the modern age, equipping them with the strategies and tools they need to eliminate guesswork and other outdated practices.

“This book was born to meet the needs of a new generation of sales and marketing leaders who are ready to ditch the traditional strategies, tactics, and technologies that are no longer working,” said Conant. “The nature of our work at 6sense and the scope of cross-industry customers we serve gives us a profound view of the need for a how-to guide to revolutionize sales and marketing efforts and enable all businesses to proceed with confidence. We put these strategies to work at 6sense, enabling us to achieve 1,136% three-year revenue growth and rank #550 on the 2022 Inc. 5000.”

In the two years since the book’s initial release, Conant has compiled more critical information to better equip sales and marketing leaders with the latest strategies and tactics to succeed in 2023 and beyond. As a result, in this version, readers can expect:
  • Conant’s and 6sense’s collective knowledge and industry expertise on modern marketing strategy and the tactics to make them happen.
  • An all-new chapter, “The Modern Sales Organization,” authored by Mark Ebert, 6sense’s Senior Vice President of Global Sales, dives deep into the latest and most effective selling principles from the Chief Revenue Officer perspective that put sales teams in a position to win.
  • Foreword by Jason Zintak, CEO of 6sense – someone who started and grew his own career as a business development representative (BDR), outlines the credibility and timeliness of the book, provides solid rationale for change and calls to action to create better B2B buyer and go-to-market experiences.
  • An FAQ chapter answers questions about how to put these modern sales and marketing approaches into practice — including a step-by-step guide to implementing an authentic, spam-free nurture program.
  • Key sales and marketing topics spanning data, AI, technology stacks, customer experience, B2B buyer behavior, prospecting, personalization, pipelines, the role of BDRs, lighting up the Dark Funnel™, all things account-based marketing, and more.
  • The mindset shift required to be a market expert, how it benefits your entire organization, and what you’ll need to leave behind to drive change.

“This book challenges sales and marketing leaders to engage customers the right way, in the right place, at the right time to achieve predictable revenue growth. It lays out exactly how to enable sales and marketing teams to take pride in the customer experience and put prospects at the center of everything,” said Ebert. “It’s a prescriptive roadmap to uncover customer demand, prioritizing which accounts to work, engaging the entire customer buying team, and measuring real success and revenue growth.”
