"Where's the most recent brochure?"
Sound familiar? You create tons of content, but for some reason, your sales team can never find it, much less use it.
They instead resort to using the same old stuff and pay little mind to what you're producing, why you're doing it, and who you are catering it to. This is a sales and marketing disconnect, and recent surveys have shown that companies with strong sales and marketing alignment achieve higher revenue growth than those with disconnects.
The great news is that content can be a uniting force that aligns marketing and sales. This benefits marketing in that their content is used more often and in more personalized ways, and it benefits sales in that they become a trusted educational resource for buyers.
In this session you will learn tactics that will help you better align with sales and get them to use your content by:
-Building your content development and organizational plan
-Developing buyer personas
-Keeping sales up to date on available content
-Using content in different mediums
-Setting up a feedback loop
