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. 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.

The Chicken & Egg Scenario In The Sales & Marketing Mix

Posted by Ross Lauder

30 June

So, what the hell are we talking about when we talk about the chicken and egg scenario? Well, let’s assume that the egg is marketing and the chicken is sales. Which comes first? Just as the chicken had to come from an egg, so sales will only come about by way of successful marketing. But that egg had to come from a chicken, just as marketing resources are only possible if your business has made the sales necessary to invest in them.

Ninjas carry out irregular warfare tactics and historically were pretty much looked down on by the samurai, while wizards perform sorcery, and neither of these traits are evident in the modern marketing mix. Another thing they are definitely not are ‘gurus’.

As you know, (and if you don’t, you should) social selling is not as simple as some would have you believe. It is not a quick fix, so get that out of your head NOW. It’s important that you start at the start and learn as you go. I always believe that you should learn on the job so I decided to give my thoughts on how I use LinkedIn, as that's what I know.
