Death Of A Salesman? Inbound & The Changing Focus Of The Sales Role In Marketing

Posted by Adam Hyland

Thu, Aug 3, 2017

Remember the days when salespeople went door to door or picked up the phone to make cold calls to try to win business? Those days are, for the most part, gone. Seismic shifts in consumer behaviour brought on by the omnipresence of the internet’s endless supply of information means people no longer want to be bothered by that interruptive approach from some guy (or gal) who has no idea who you are, what your interests are, or what you might want to buy.

Bad company culture leads to disaffected team members, fast turnover of staff, and a general lack of enthusiasm for the job at hand. That not only leads to a bad working environment, but ultimately to poor performance. If team members don’t feel they are part of something great, it will show in what they produce.

Posted by Ken Lanigan

Fri, Jul 21, 2017

I have always been a sales and marketing guy. In my inbound marketing agency, I go in and dazzle the client with the answers to their problems and get the deal signed.

Tips & Tools For An Effective Sales & Marketing Strategy

Posted by Ross Lauder

Mon, Jul 10, 2017

By now, you will hopefully have seen my previous blog discussing the chicken and egg scenario when it comes to sales and marketing.
