Inbound Marketing Needs Inbound Sales To Work
Now that you’re getting leads from inbound marketing it might be time to upgrade your old-school sales process to match your new-school marketing. Better yet, if you’re in the middle of moving to inbound, do your company a big favor and work on inbound sales now instead of waiting to realize you’re not great at closing inbound leads.
Your prospects don’t know the difference between sales and marketing. All they know is that they’re in the middle of an experience with your company. If that experience suddenly feels different to them, they’re going to go underground, they’re going to stop replying and they’re going to slow down the entire sales process. If this sounds familiar, you might have an issue.
No worries. Inbound sales is designed to continue the inbound marketing experience for people who have found their way down into the very bottom of the funnel and asked to speak with your salespeople.
