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

Posted by Adam Hyland

03 August

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.

Posted by Ross Lauder

10 July

By now, you will hopefully have seen my previous blog discussing the chicken and egg scenario when it comes to sales and marketing. If you haven’t, you can see it here, but to summarise: the conundrum is that sales need marketing to generate the leads they can turn into customers, but marketing can only come about when there are enough sales to invest in marketing resources.
