The Marketing and Sales Alignment Playbook

September 30, 2022

Marketing and Sales Alignment
Alignment between marketing and sales is a top priority at most organizations. After all, the more marketing and sales teams are aligned, the better the results. When marketing and sales are in sync, teams see increased revenue, improved customer retention, increased renewals, and better win rates.

Despite the fact that teams want alignment, many struggle to achieve it. That’s, in part, because gaining alignment isn’t easy.

If your company is already performing well, it may be tempting to continue on upholding the status quo—making sales through reputation or referrals. If your company is underperforming, it may be overwhelming to address issues with alignment. In either case, getting aligned is essential.

Why Account Insights are the Missing Link in ABM Success

whitePaper | January 27, 2022

ABM focuses on targeting the right accounts at the right time and treating your prospect as a market of one. But an often-overlooked component within targeting campaigns is understanding the customer — generating insights into account activities are the missing link. The challenge lies in figuring out which points of information are most relevant to your prospect and crafting a plan to fully leverage them to drive engagement. Enterprise buyers are increasingly protective of their time, while a potential vendor that still expects the luxury of a lengthy introduction and a recounting of what challenges stand in the way of the organization’s progress is unlikely to move the relationship forward.
