Follow the Path to Alignment
Although everyone knows and wants Sales and Marketing to be tightly aligned, the fact of the matter is that good intentions do not lead to smooth workflows. Sales and Marketing must agree to what Marketing will provide, how Sales will act, and where everyone will help to validate and improve the process and results going forward.
The OppSource Sales and Marketing Alignment Workshop is designed to help your teams:
Agree on terminology and definitions (What is a lead? What criteria must it meet in order to be worked by Sales?)
Create two-way Service Level Agreements (How will we work together? What are the processes for hand-off/recycling/nurturing?) Conduct follow-up review meetings often to re-evaluate and update the agreement based on results.
Define a closed-loop feedback process (Why was lead X sent back to Marketing? Why was lead Y a great fit?)
