I’m excited to talk to my guest, Peter Mollins, CMO at KnowledgeTree. On this episode, Peter and I talk in depth about the alignment and communication between sales and marketing departments. And, how better collaboration at every stage in the sales funnel will lead to generating more revenue.

[09:30] There is a new generation of marketers that have the foresight to focus more on the bottom of the sales funnel.

[11:20] A Four Quadrant report identified that 20 stakeholders need to “nod their heads” on a standard B2B deal, rather than the more commonly held belief of 5.4 stakeholders. What’s Peter’s take on this?

[14:14] How does marketing and sales collaboration work in effectively aligned environments? What are some of the best practices Peter has seen?

[19:35] The only way sales will stop being skeptical about marketing content is by feeling they had an input into its creation.

[20:35] The move toward the science of marketing and how it buttresses the art of selling is increasingly affecting bottom of funnel opportunity identification, and prioritization.
