In order to have meaningful conversations with prospects, salespeople require the expertise of the training and marketing departments -- both of which must have aligned goals. However, in most organizations, training and marketing teams are siloed -- the former providing techniques and the latter focusing on messaging. This lack of collaboration leaves salespeople unequipped to close the volume and size of deals needed to drive company revenue. This webinar will help attendees:

  • Determine if their messages, tools and training are complementary or conflicting.
  • Learn how to align training and marketing teams to provide salespeople with the assets they need to close more, higher-value deals.
  • Prepare salespeople for the three critical conversations they need to have across every stage of the buying cycle.

"A recent Corporate Visions survey found that only half of respondents feel adequately prepared to create new sales opportunities with the content and training provided to them by their organizations, and aligning training and marketing teams is the most effective way to empower your sales force," said Riesterer. "Providing sales teams with the collaborative resources they need to create, confirm and capture value throughout the buying cycle will help them hold more meaningful conversations with prospects, and, ultimately, close more deals. And, that's exactly what this webinar aims to help marketers, trainers and salespeople achieve."
