Help Sales Understand Marketing

In the recently (December 2012) Aberdeeen Report "Sales Performance Management 2012" , author Peter Ostrow has two recommendations to improve your sales performance.

Why bother?

Improved Sales Performance leads to more of your reps making quota, shorter sales cycles and bigger average deals. Sounds good to me.

Ostrow's first recommendation is to base sales compensation on team activities , the second is to

"Cross train sellers into other customer facing roles such as Marketing"

So what are your plans to help sales better understand Marketing?

My suggestion would be continue your work on jointly agreements on Culture, Language and People.

How about running more joint meetings, now if you need an external speaker why not ask....

Well, I'd think it makes perfect sense to cross train your salespeople. Sales and marketing go pretty much hand in hand!

From corporate parties, dinner to family gathering, catering can always add to the vibrant atmosphere of many special events, no matter how many visitors. Some Catering Jakarta specialize in some types of events, while others provide full services to create special parties or events. Corporate catering, wedding catering, and birthday catering are just some of the types of services available from Catering Jakarta.
Professional Catering Jakarta for parties is an excellent approach to considering food preparation pressure for some guests. Not just a comfortable caterer, but you might be able to plan a good menu on a budget that's a bit more expensive than cooking yourself. Plus, if you involve Catering Jakarta, do not bother to shop, cook, prepare, and serve and otherwise you can direct your attention to enjoy your party.
If you want affordable Catering Jakarta, Do not hesitate to contact Dpawon Catering!
