But what is surprising—shocking, in fact—is how vital first- and third-party information is for creative and execution strategies today.

Implementing a sales enablement strategy is one of the most effective ways you can transform your sales and marketing teams.
Organizations that have undertaken a sales enablement initiative have seen a 350% increase in content usage, 275% boost in conversions, and 65% more revenue generated by new reps.
In this webinar, we’ll share the 3 biggest mistakes companies make when implementing a sales enablement strategy to ensure you don’t fall victim to these pitfalls.
You'll walk away with the framework for implementing a sales enablement strategy that will enable you to:
? Increase Sales Productivity
? Improve Sales and Marketing Alignment
? Increase Efficiency of Content Management
? Unlock Deep Content Insights and Analytics

Two of the biggest players in data driven decision making are website analytics platforms and customer relationship management systems. The former includes accumulating data on top of the funnel behavior such as site traffic origins, lead generation, content consumption tracking, device usage, and overall site behavior. While the latter has a focus more on bottom of the funnel activity such as lead nurturing, customer status, lifetime value, etc.

Hence, they miss numerous sales and marketing opportunities—online and off.
Whether your shop is real, virtual, or a combination of the two,
the more complete your customer vision, the greater the value
you can provide to them and the greater value they will deliver
to your bottom line.
