Smart Marketing Starts With a Sales Perspective

I’m not sure why sales and marketing have developed a relationship just as contentious as IU and Purdue. They’re equally important functions that serve the same organizations, and each offers expertise that could benefit the other.

Marketing is a Balancing Act

As a marketing and advertising agency, it makes sense that our primary contact at most clients is the individual who oversees marketing. But we usually find ourselves navigating around many masters. When a company draws upon outside accounting expertise, that firm normally works with the controller or the CFO. If legal help is what’s needed, the [...]
