Most CRM firms are frustrated by their sales results: win rates are low, too much is spent on proposals, sales staff (i.e. project managers) are frustrated, the cost of client acquisition is too high, and firm are working for the wrong types of clients. It doesn’t have to be this way! This webinar covers sales and marketing from a business perspective, characterizing and challenging the inefficient opportunistic marketing that is common in the CRM sector. Opportunistic sales and marketing is contrasted with a strategic approach that is more efficient and yields better results. You will learn marketing’s fundamental premise and how to implement this within your company’s sales and marketing systems. By moving from opportunistic to strategic marketing, you will be able to increase your firm’s win rate while simultaneously lowering your cost of winning work.
