CRM ACCELERATION 2012
Does the Marketing Manager Need to Carry a Sales Quota?
Customer Service is the new revenue model, and Marketing can accelerate revenue growth.
If you're a sales or marketing leader then you must see this keynote presentation!
Products, services and solutions are becoming commoditized and margins are under pressure like never before. Sales people complain about a lack of quality leads and marketing complain about the sales department's inability to deliver enough new customers.
But professional selling is changing and today's buyers are empowered by information as never before. It is therefore imperative to differentiate through smarter business models and the unique creation of genuine customer value.
Tony Hughes will discuss current trends and what to do about these challenges through sales and marketing convergence, the intelligent use of technology and a unique approach to creating value in complex environments.
Here's a sample of Tony delivering a previous keynote presentation in late 2011 for The Centre of sales Excellence annual sales leadership conference:
