Sales, Marketing & Automation: How-to Bring it All Together

Digital availability of customer information and advances in marketing automation technology when applied correctly can dramatically improve your marketing and sales process, lead generation and customer acquisition. The trouble is though, most businesses never get the results they want from this data and technology and frequently find themselves out of sync with today’s buyers. Why? Modern buyers increasingly prefer to research products and services using a variety of information sources including mining business networks, surfing the web, watching videos, downloading case studies, attending webinars and all before speaking with a sales professional.

Technology alone does NOT replace the need for a sound marketing and sales strategy. And regardless of how advanced technology gets, we must always remember that to succeed, we still have to convince real human beings to buy our products or services.

Whether you are a large manufacturer or a small service provider, this full-day workshop will provide a roadmap to begin aligning your Sales, Marketing and Technology to generate more leads and sales for your business.

Our experts will take you on the journey from identifying and finding your prospects to building and effective sales funnel and clearly communicating with your prospects and customers. We will show you how to automate the process and integrate your marketing methods such as trade shows, direct mail, online ads, email, and other techniques to maximize your results. 

Let’s bring it all together, together!
