The journey: from lead management to ROI


Published on

Nowadays, digital marketing is developing itself on a day to day basis with better, more intuitive ways to understand and engage with the customer. New techniques, apps and approaches support the creation of rich customer profiles and clear insights into what a (potential) customer wants. As interesting as this is for the modern digital marketer, if sales does not use this information, or has a different view of what the customer wants or needs, many marketing efforts might be useless as they remain unactioned by sales. Marketing and Sales need to be on the journey together to define what the right behavior and interest is, for sales to pick up the lead and close the deal.

Now it the right moment to create this mutual view on customer behavior, marketing leads turned into sales leads, shared goals and shared gains: ROI from our investments!The Journey
