  • Marketing departments are now having to do more than just throw leads over the fence. With ROI being added to their requirements, you cant afford to hand sales a phone book and hope they close deals.
  • Part of engagement should be monitoring for sales triggers
  • You have to enable your sales team and help them become an extension of your marketing messaging. This is the only way to be successful.
  • The first online profile you should focus on is LinkedIn. Stop thinking of it as a profile only updated when you are looking for a job. Your LI profile is being looked at by 60% or more of the people you come in contact with. Make sure your profile is updated, professional and an excellent example of YOU. I could talk for an hour on ways to enhance your LinkedIn profile but the most important points you should focus on are headline – Photo - websites - work history and summary.
