This hour of the Sales Lead Management Association’s Radio program is devoted to the question, “Is this the best you can do? What’s expected from a marketing manager today?
SLMA radio host Jim Obermayer asks, Eric Lundbohm, “Are marketing managers responsible for lead generation? Must they match sales quotas with sufficient sales inquiries? Are marketing managers in charge of generating only qualified leads? Is lead management the responsibility of the marketing manager? What happens if lead follow-up is poor on the part of salespeople, is marketing management culpable for this also? Whose responsibility is it to generate wealth in the company, marketing management or sales management? Maybe both together?
It will be an interesting hour. Both Obermayer and Lundbohm are outspoken, opinionated and have strongly held, sometimes opposing views.
