  • Telling Stories
    “Your goal should not (must not) be to create a story that is quick, involves no risks and is without controversy. Boredom will not help you grow. You must go to the edges.”

  • Sales and Marketing Don’t Get Along
    Difficulties, Problems, Challenges, Missed Chances
    Leads
    Leads are criticized as worthless by sales
    Not enough leads generated to satisfy sales
    Sales don’t track Marketing Leads to measure effectiveness
    Sales uses ineffective techniques to turn leads into prospects
    Sales won’t give up success stories
    Sales won’t tell us what the customer wants

  • Ideal State
    Marketing and Sales work together to produce meaningful stories for both to use
    Marketing in lead generation
    Sales in prospecting
    Marketing and Sales have a common framework for creating stories that address worldview issues of their prospects
    A common framework allows both Marketing and Sales to measure results/effectiveness of lead generation activities
