Marketing and sales used to be portrayed in stark contrast. Nowadays, there’s an ongoing trend to go for “sales and marketing alignment” — that is, making the two teams work together. There’s little information on how to do it exactly. Many focus on improving the flow of information between the two departments. Is that all that can be done?
Today, I’ll show you a couple of ways the Woodpecker marketing and sales teams cooperate to create a streamlined lead generation process.
