What are these benefits? And how do you set it up?

The salesman needs the marketing team and the marketing team alike. No one can go without the other with smarketing. Salespeople who are in constant contact with customers collect crucial information or data that will be used for the marketing team and also note this interesting information in a tool called RCMP (customer relationship management) that will facilitate the salesperson’s work. Salespeople are committed to taking charge of qualified leads that have been passed down by marketers.

Collect or collect as much data as possible from both sides and finally gather it together so that in the end it brings a satisfactory result. These are purely smarketing benefits given the engagement of hearings, the assumption of leads and the improvement of sales techniques and processes.

To set up a smarketing, you have to take into account these few lines below:

Set SMART Goals (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Temporary)

The sales team and marketing team must share common goals in order to obtain clear, accurate and achievable data. A whole bunch of questions are asked in order to find a quantitative solution but especially with quality.
