  • 5. Misalignment between sales and marketing is an age old problem… And solving the problem has never been more important!
  • 7. The sales experience begins with the very first interaction with a buyer and continues throughout the decision-making process and beyond.

  • 10. Alignment drives revenue and performance. Aligning sales and marketing also leads to 38% higher sales win rates (source: MarketingProfs). Sales and marketing alignment can help your company become 67% better at closing deals (source: Marketo). Companies with “dynamic, adaptable sales and marketing processes” report an average of 10% more sales people on-quota compared to other companies (source: CSO Insights).
  • 11. The bad news? There is still a disconnect. Companies with poor sales and marketing alignment have a 4% revenue decline (source: Aberdeen Research Group) Only 8% of companies have strong alignment between their sales and marketing departments (source: Forrester Research). B2B companies’ inability to align sales and marketing teams around the right processes and technologies costs 10% or more of revenue per year (source: IDC).
  • 12. Account based strategies are popular but cannot work without interdepartmental alignment.
  • 13. Account-based selling is a multi-channel sales strategy which targets high value companies based on an ideal customer profile. An Account- based model predicts the organizations who have the highest propensity to buy. A successful strategy requires that sales, marketing and customer success align to allocate resources to highly targeted accounts. Account-based marketing (ABM), also known as key account marketing, is a strategic approach to business marketing based on account awareness in which an organization considers and communicates with individual prospect or customer accounts as markets of one.
