The majority of businesses will at some point have a rivalry between their sales and marketing functions. And sometimes this battle of pointing fingers will seem to never end! One important reason to bridge this gap is to identify and close more – and better – qualified leads.
Here are some interesting quotes that reflect this gap and raise the discussion of lead nurturing:
“Only about 25% of the leads that marketing hands over to sales qualify as immediate sales opportunities. The remaining 75% of leads are time wasters in the eyes of sales. But a large chunk of them will eventually convert if you keep in touch”
“Lead nurturing is most effective when it combines technology with the human element”
The challenge is to establish a clear method of delivering highly qualified leads for sales and enable marketing to maximize the value to the business.
