Sales Enablement
Achieve Sales Growth through Collaborative Sales and Marketing

Bring Marketing to Sales Enablement

Marketing focuses on the top of the purchase funnel, while sales aims at the bottom of the funnel. 

Marketing is all about creative, messaging, and campaigns (brand awareness), while sales is about opportunities and closing deals (meeting quotas). The engagement between sales and marketing encompasses the following areas:

  • Drivies demand generation
  • Fulfills sales’ collateral needs
  • Aidis sales training and onboarding

With digital, the lines between sales and marketing have become blurry. At certain points, we step on each other’s toes. 

Marketing managers use email campaigns to nurture prospects. 

Guess what? Sales are doing their own mini-campaigns to reach out to their own prospects. New technologies may make us productive separately, but it didn’t bring us together, since the tools sales and marketing use are not fully integrated. Sales and marketing need to re-evaluate how they should work together moving forward. 

As sales and marketing boundaries evolve and blur, marketing’s role will need to be expand to:                                   

  • Identify marketing elements that are part of the sales discussion      
  • Educate sales in key marketing programs
  • Help sales teams understand technology’s impact on marketing and sales
  • Brainstorm marketing programs which aid sales negotiations

Integrate sales and marketing tools, and the customer lifespan

Here is How to Establish a Relationship Between Sales and Marketing

  • Understand your current processes and challenges
  • Lead a collaboration day with key players
  • Identify main initiatives and key results for the teams to implement
  • Source salestech and MarTech tools for communication and collaboration 
  • Lead the implementation processes

 Collaboration requires people, data, process, technology, and tools. At the same time, it also requires marketing to be nimble and spontaneous. You’ll need to adjust sales and marketing priorities and budget allocation in order to effectively plan and collaborate.
