Hi Everyone, Carl Gould here your #70secondCEO, just over a minute of investment per day for a lifetime of results.
No. 2, Second Quadrant. Right here, INCOME. This is Sales and Marketing and all of your relationships- joint ventures, strategic alliances– these are the relationships that you bring into the business, the exposure you get for the business and at the end of the day, the leads that you generate for your business. Very, very important that you separate Sales and Marketing. They’re two different functions. They’re in the same quadrant but they’re two different functions. Once you set the goals for the business, you turn your lead generation team loose and tell them, “You are gonna go and generate these leads.” Don’t let them talk to the Sales team – How’s it going? How are you closing? We don’t need that conversation. Tell the Marketing team to go out, generate the leads. SALES is the tactical implementation of your marketing function. So Sales team, you take them and set them aside or whoever does your sales- your Affiliate Marketing, however you do it- and you say, “You’re gonna receive this many leads throughout the course of the year. We’ve got to close them. We’ve got to turn them into a sales, and close business, LOIs, contracts, whatever you call it, agreements.” But they are the tactical implementation of your marketing function and should be treated as such. Separate Sales, separate Marketing. They’re two different functions.
