Sales leads are the lifeblood of any business – after all it’s tough to sell your product or service without having people to sell it to. So it’s important that businesses are working as effectively as possible to leverage their sales leads. But are they?
That’s the question we set out to answer in our 2016 Sales Effectiveness Report on Lead Follow-up.

And yet… how much of that spend is actually guided by best practices? Perhaps more to the point, do most organizations even know what those best practices are? Does yours? Now’s your chance to find out.Read more
Independence Day is right around the corner, so now is a good time to remember and be thankful for things from which we’re independent:
– The British (that’s a 1776 historical reference folks, not a 2016 political one)
