Editor's Notes

  1. What’s the split between sales & marketing here? Who’s Sales? Who’s Marketing?
  2. Do you know what I mea nby friction? People want a light touch experience, no barriers, smooth.
  3. How do you see the digital shift strategically? What action are you taking? What is preventing you move faster? Budgets, Time, Culture, Expertise, Fear?
  4. What do I mea nby NET NEW? When I say Transformational, I mean this will effect the balance between sales and marketing. Marketing need to take responsibility for the top of the funnel, sales for closing and converting. Marketing will share the responsibility of sales targets
  5. Give me some examples of content
  6. Talk to us about carrying out a 50 point website audit
  7. Talk to us about carrying out a 50 point website audit
  8. For more information, we have a buyer profile guide on our website with free templates
  9. As you can see, we’re operating in an omni channel approach
  10. Is branded search traffic really organic? Or is it a really 2nd hand direct traffic?
  11. How wide is your social media audience at work? Talk about the competition which drove the overall audience by well over 10,000 people in a fortnight.
