Organizations need to rethink their systems and processes and focus on using the signals they're capturing from customer interactions. By better understanding the customer's existing knowledge and future needs, they can adjust their campaigns accordingly. Adopting a connected sales and marketing approach allows for more continuity between—and fluidity across—the marketing and sales functions. Companies attain a deeper understanding of each customer, enabling them to act as knowledgeable, trusted advisors from the first connection point.
