Brainshark recently sponsored a webinar featuring original research by two thought leaders in the area of marketing and sales alignment. Jerry Rackley, Chief Analyst of Demand Metric and Tim Riesterer, Chief Strategist & CMO of Corporate Visions shared data and insights (and some surprising disconnects) from recent research on the current state of sales and marketing alignment.
For those alignment naysayers, this stat might make you sit up and take notice.
A recent study by Demand Metric reveals that 66% of companies reporting complete alignment made their revenue goals, compared to just 41% who reported no alignment.
If companies want to drive more profitable growth at lower costs, marketing and sales alignment clearly matters.
