Here are five problems that aligning Sales & Marketing can solve for you:

Solved✅: Pipeline metrics provide your sales team with insights into when and which prospects are engaging with your content offers, social media, and website the most, generating a list of warm leads for your sales team.
Problem❌: Your sales and marketing teams work towards different goals with mixed messaging providing a poor first impression of your brand.
Solved✅: Regular collaborations between sales and marketing provide an opportunity to keep track of shared goals, share successes and obstacles, and suggest improvements to workflows.
