Media and information businesses are increasingly focused on generating predictable sales flows from scalable sales operations. Best practice from SaaS and other sectors can be applied to improve quality of earnings. However, the key challenge is creating the structures, processes and talent pool to enable this transformation.
This webinar is intended to help CEOs of independent information and media businesses to structure and develop high performance, scalable sales teams.
Here’s what we learned:
- Get your teams to collaborate: connecting sales, marketing, product and client success is a value multiplier
- Your sales leaders need to be the change in order to lead the change
- Don’t be afraid to implement a data-led approach – and the CEO and leadership team need to be visibly behind it
The webinar is now available on-demand.
