How to Be a
Marketing Hero to
Sales
Presented by
Though Marketing and Sales are actually working toward the
same objective — sustainable profitability, the two haven't
always exhibited the greatest teamwork.
Through communication and greater collaboration, bank
marketers can play a starring role in salespeople achieving their
top goals.
Communication
✤ One issue has been a lack of transparency; the two groups
don't always know what the other is doing, or understand the
impact of those efforts.
✤ The more the two departments disengage from each other,
the less likely they are to achieve that goal.
Greater Collaboration
✤ A new report on sales enablement asserts that companies
that have a unified sales and marketing structure annually
generate 20% more revenue than those who don't.
✤ When Sales and Marketing work together, firms also enjoy
major improvements in key performance metrics (KPMs),
such as shorter sales cycles, lower market-entry costs and
lower cost per sale.
Aberdeen Group
It starts With a Conversation
In a study involving 261 B2B companies, with 42% of those
surveyed representing Sales and 35% Marketing:
Organizations whose Sales and Marketing teams met
more than five times a year consistently outperformed
those who didn't in achieving those KPMs.
Aberdeen Group
Who Begins the Conversation?
✤ The onus is not necessarily on Marketing to initiate these
conversations, but it's probably a smart move.
✤ These discussions can lead to Sales having a greater
understanding of the role Marketing might be playing in
helping to reach sales goals.
Ironing out the Differences
Come to agreement on what constitutes a quality lead and
close gaps between expectation and reality.
Tackle tough problems and fuel innovative solutions.
How is this Best Done?
✤ The Harvard Business Review says face-to-face meetings
and brainstorming sessions are very effective at establishing
the common ground needed to begin this collaboration.
✤ The anecdotal information that Sales hears in the field can
inspire topics that Marketing can address in newsletters and
other client communications.
Recognizing the Impact on Sales
Salespeople may be unaware of the important role
Marketing plays in providing business opportunity.
✤ Your bank's prospects are soaking up content about the
business solutions they're interested in, well before Sales
gets in the door.
✤ SiriusDecisions estimates that the buyer's journey is 70%
complete by the time that sales conversation happens.

Grand Guide to Sales Enablement
With so much information available to buyers, through so many
online channels, Sales may have a hard time connecting lead
nurturing content to a closed sale.
Content Marketing: Smoke and Mirrors?
To a profession that lives and dies by numbers, Sales may be
both pleased and surprised by the statistics.
Finding That Connection
Follow us through a HubSpot checklist of statistics from some
of the world's leading marketing experts…
The Impact of Lead Nurturing is
Apparent.
Companies that excel at lead nurturing generate 50%
more sales-ready leads at 33% lower cost.
(Source: Forrester Research)
Nurtured leads make purchases that are 47% larger than
non-nurtured leads.
(Source: The Annuitas Group)
46% of marketers with mature lead management processes
have Sales teams that follow up on more than 75% of
Marketing-generated leads.
(Source: Forrester Research)
25% of marketers who adopt mature lead management
processes report that Sales teams contact prospects within
one day. Only 10% of marketers report the same follow-up
time without mature lead management processes.
(Source: Forrester Research)
Companies with mature lead generation and management
practices have a 9.3% higher sales quota achievement rate.
Companies that excel at lead nurturing have 9% more Sales
reps making quota.
(Source: CSO Insights)
Nurtured leads produce, on average, a 20% increase in
sales opportunities versus non-nurtured leads.
(Source: Demand Gen Report)
All the Marketing Statistics You'll Need
To Reach These Impressive Numbers,
Sales and Marketing Must Combine Their
Efforts.
✤ The Harvard Business Review suggests that a unified
database will enable both Sales and Marketing to identify all
information a prospect views prior to a sales close.
✤ To create such a database, Sales and Marketing need to
agree on what data they want to collect and why.
✤ A common dashboard for Sales and Marketing will allow both
departments to quickly view needed metrics.
The Bottom Line
By collaborating to achieve mutual goals, the lines blur
between departments, and Marketing is no longer seen as
a cost center but rather as a viable member of the revenue
team.
