While 55% of marketing and sales professionals indicated that their organization has a formal nurturing program in place, a little over half of those said that the leads being delivered to Sales still aren't well qualified.
Incline Village, NV (PRWEB) December 29, 2011
Each quarter, Corporate Visions, Inc., the leader in sales and marketing messaging, surveys marketing and sales professionals who work in complex, business-to-business selling environments. The findings highlight trends and challenges facing industry-leading companies across the globe that are working to achieve alignment between their marketing and sales efforts, and de-commoditize their solution in a market overwhelmed with similar, competitive offerings.
Key findings include:
- While 55% of marketing and sales professionals indicated that their organization has a formal nurturing program in place, a little over half of those said that the leads being delivered to Sales still aren't well qualified.
- Not surprisingly, emails and phone calls dominate nurturing programs, while media (videos, webinars) and direct mail are used less frequently.
- A slight majority of respondents felt that their company's nurturing content was compelling enough to accept a sales appointment.
