What's The Difference Between Sales & Marketing
July 27, 2018
The combination of sales and marketing is vital for business growth – so what’s the difference?
Sales develops relationships with customers and/or channel distribution partners. Selling or making sales consists of personal interaction – one on
one meetings, telephone calls or networking. Sales is about overcoming objections, negotiating prices and terms to secure the bookings. Without
Sales, marketing efforts fall short.
Marketing is understanding your customers. Who they are, where they come from and how they book. Marketing helps you set your product, your pricing,
your communication, your distribution channels and secure your customers.
Marketing needs to convert your customer knowledge into tools and tactics to attract your market, build (often digital) relationships, and develop
leads. Not even the best sales efforts can close the deal if your marketing focus is incorrect. Marketing must be reviewed and updated constantly
to ensure your sales are effective.
