Who Owns the Pipeline. The Creators or the Closers

00:0000:00

Listen  on iTunes while yuo dire to Disneyland

20180419-tweet-joyce-benedetti.jpg

The pipeline or sales funnel is evolving as marketing becomes more aggressive and sophisticated in the creation of not only sales leads, but qualified leads.  It only takes a view of sales funnel models to see that marketing has evolved from top of the funnel suppliers to active participants in many stages of the customer journey.  The question is, who owns the pipeline?   The creators or the closers?  Sometimes marketing is assuming both duties.  In B2C marketing is called upon to do both, in B2B not so much. 

In this interview The Pedowitz Group’s VP of Sales Scott Benedetti and its CMO and VP of Strategy agree and disagree and then agree again on who owns the pipeline from their unique perspectives.  The host is Jim Obermayer.

They discuss:

  • Interesting banter between a VP of Sales and a CMO and VP of company strategy
  • Who owns the pipeline is the wrong question!
  • Why executive level sponsorship is needed
  • Why everybody in the company owns the pipeline
  • In the reality it is the customer who owns the pipeline

Scott Benedetti

Scott Benedetti serves as Vice President of Sales at The Pedowitz Group where he is accountable for helping TPG and its client organizations achieve measurable revenue results. He is obsessed with helping customers along their Revenue Marketing™ journey to transform their operations from a cost center to a revenue center.

Flushed with Data and Metrics: Why is it Still Hard to Prove Marketing ROI?

The data is there, or at least available; that excuse for proving the ROI of marketing is dead and isn’t valid.  If the Chief Financial Officer for a company is asked to show the ROI for the company, it would be impossible for him or her to simply say, “AH, we can’t do that.”  So, what is it that is makes beggars out of CEO’s that want to know the ROI for marketing? Why isn’t marketing ROI a written part of every CMO’s job description? Author Laura Patterson of VisionEdge Marketing has opinions about why this is still an evasive goal for most corporations.
