A Guide to Business Sales Leads

Forward thinking companies have gone over the bickering between “sales” and “marketing.” This idea where “marketing” asserts that “sales”is not following up the leads that they are bringing in and is therefore wasting their efforts, while “sales” who tries to follow the strategy that has been put up by “marketing” will claim that “marketing” is providing too many leads that just do not hold a real buyer, since “marketing” is placing a very wide area of coverage. The progress of the company is hampered as a result of this. And worse, the effect that it brings in, is an unresolved situation where real leads will many times fall into the crack.

Bridging this breach between “sale’s leads” and “marketing leads”- recognized as the most important contribution that will mitigated this departure is one thing. Bridging this gap can be difficult for the old platform where the company is supreme because of the scarcity of products and services available to consumers but with today’s paradigm shift, the customer is already the master, because of the numerous choices available to him to answer his particular needs. And so, the marketing personnel is constantly seeking new sources of leads, and crafting messages to strike on peoples interest in the company’s particular products or services from as many quarters as possible, while sales on the other hand, who has been trained to advertise infinite features that the company’s product brings, relentlessly manufactures ways to enforce what the marketing department has initiated. This is tantamount to bearing different strategies- marketing is more of an “experimental” frame of mind, while sales is constantly hunting for more features to close the sales. There is no coordination between these two functions.

Marketing is different today, and they use a platform that appeals to a potential customer by creating an indirect benefit in order to draw only those who are interested to purchase the particular company product or service, and so they acquire leads that come from different sources or activities. And this is often paired with lead management, who now takes it into their hands to characterize each potential customer and then use these inputs by subjecting them to a multiple sales stages in order to arrive to a final juncture where sales is finally transacted. And it is in this kind of context that you will find the cooperation of the sales and marketing teams working together as one. For sales and marketing to work in total accord, a leading-edge customer relation management solution is required.
