R.I.P. Marketing, Sales 2.0 Must Move Up the Funnel


Published on

Session Description
Under the Sales 2.0 paradigm, high-tech resources allow sales teams to target and engage with leads in a way that feels seamless and non-invasive. The model lends itself particularly well to the bottom of the sales funnel, where prospects are nearing purchase-readiness. To ensure that top-of-funnel leads are not ignored, sales and marketing departments must do more than align—they must fully integrate.

In this webinar, Ric Riddle will follow up his presentation at the 2013 Sales 2.0 Conference in Boston by examining why the dominance of the Sales 2.0 and inbound marketing models demands the full integration of the two departments. The funnel no longer belongs to sales alone—it has become a digital engagement process in which marketing acts as a sales proxy, conducting thousands of one-on-one virtual conversations with early stage buyers. Attend the webinar to learn how to implement this perspective at your organization.
