It’s marketing’s job to set the sales team up for success. To do this, the marketing and sales strategies must be aligned. We recently spoke with Clint Poole, the Vice President of Marketing at Lionbridge about this issue. You can listen to the episode here. Clint is responsible for driving demand for the company’s new solution offerings via a multi-channel demand generation program. This has given him great insight into how to align marketing and sales in order to hit the revenue goal.
During this interview, Clint will tackle topics such as:
- How to ensure your brand promise is communicated correctly by the sales team.
- How to create both demand generation and sales enablement content.
- How to nurture leads until they are sales ready.
- How sales can play a role in helping marketing campaigns be successful.
