Sales Enablement Starts with Marketing: Listen While You Work - Robin Saitz

How Marketers Enable Salespeople to Have Valuable Conversations

Slma-recommended-187Robin Saitz convinces us from this live streaming interview on SLMARadio that sales enablement not only starts with marketing, but it is a measurable function that has a definable return on investment.   Yes she says, it is about controlling content that the prospect wants and helping salespeople with content delivery.   Host Jim Obermayer says he learned more from this interview about sales enablement than he thought possible. 
 
You think you train your sales reps and turn them loose, and six weeks later the sales manager gets around to traveling with them and their first responses are often, “Where is did you learn that?” Where did those qualifying questions come from?”  “Why did you talk so much?”  In this interview, Brainshark CMO Robin Saitz discusses what MARKETING can do to make sales conversations meaningful.
