Why Don’t My Leads Convert?

Best Practices to Improve Marketing/Sales Alignment

There are many reasons why organizations should improve their sales and marketing alignment. Cross-functional alignment can account for up to one third of a company’s growth, according to research firm SiriusDecisions. The most successful organizations engage key business stakeholders to cooperatively define sales and marketing processes, and align resources and campaign strategies. These types of well-aligned companies are 15% more profitable, SiriusDecisions found.

This whitepaper explores the challenges posed to organizations when sales and marketing departments are misaligned. It also provides several best practices initiatives to solve these challenges through a case study of video email company BombBomb.
