Watch sales people react to any marketing presentation, and the disconnect between the teams is palpable. When the reps’ most mundane smartphone updates are more compelling than the marketer’s plans to facilitate their success, it’s clear that marketing and sales are operating from different playbooks.
In this presentation, Adele Revella presents a plan to build a marketing team that provides key insights into the one topic that dominates the agenda of every successful sales person: how and why buyers choose among their options and what you can do to influence that decision.
Based on more than 25 years in the trenches as a B2B sales and marketing executive, trainer, and author, Adele reveals the steps that are enabling marketers to conduct buyer interviews and probe for facts about what really motivates their decisions – new insights that the buyer hasn’t yet shared with anyone. You’ll see how to build this new competency as the foundation of credibility and trust with all the marketer’s key audiences, including the sales people and the buyers themselves.
