On the twelfth day of Christmas my Sales & Marketing Effectiveness firm sent to me:

 

Twelve board of directors drumming,

 

Eleven sales regions piping past quota,

 

Ten new major accounts a-leaping,

 

Nine regional sales VP’s dancing,

 

Eight lead nurture campaigns a-milking,

 

Seven buyer personas mapped a-swimming to the sale process,
Six digit bonus a-laying,

 

Five golden content marketing campaigns generating leads,

 

Four qualified leads a day from calling lead generation reps,

 

Three sales operations hens orchestrating ideal size & structure,

 

Two months from turtle dove to ramped sales reps,

 

And a fantastic 2012 where I met my number

 

twelve days of lead gen christmas
