How to find harmony in a house divided

June 15, 2015


Marketing and sales, together forever. It’s not the most traditional love story, but these two critical parts of your organization are most likely finding that their jobs are intersecting more than ever before - and that they’re having to learn how to find harmony in a house divided.

The top decision makers and influencers your teams are trying to reach are seeking relevant information and content, and they have a strong desire to become informed and educated on what you have to offer. Insightful content, strong personal connections and engagement will help you reach your tech customer in a more meaningful manner. And your marketing and sales teams are obviously critical to this process - but only if they can work together toward the common goal of nurturing the potential buyer along the purchase journey, ending in results (e.g. a sale!).

Grab the tissue box, because this love story is sure to tug on your cross-functional heartstrings.
