Content Marketing is now required to provide ground cover for your sales team. Decision makers are requiring it and will feel that sales people without are just “winging it.” Content creation doesn’t need to be complicated to meet the needs of your sales team.

Inactive – You have a contact but for some reason so far they’ve not responded to your marketing. Aware – Prospects have seen your enewsletters, eblasts, website, blog posts, social media activity, or something else in a consistent fashion. It usually takes 7-10 marketing touches to get someone’s attention.
