Listen to the Podcast Below



  • Sales and marketing need to become better aligned.  Sales people should think like a marketer but sell like a sales person.
    • “The modern buyer requires a modern seller.”  Marketers can teach sales people what the thought process and breakdown of a modern buyer is. 
  • Marketing can help sales people engage with buyers and clients the way that they want to be engaged with.


  • Marketers should figure out how to be held accountable for producing leads that can be quantified. Speak the language of the sales team by saying “here is our quota.”
  • The term ‘Social Selling’ will be dead in 2 years. It will just be selling.  Really it is better described as digital selling.  Utilizing platforms that people want to engage with and focusing on engaging the way you buyer wants.  Omni-platform technique.
  • This can only be done if you track HOW your buyer is engaging with you and what platform they are using.
No matter who you are the number one thing that you need to do in digital marketing is leverage video.
