The Sales & Marketing KPIs that Actually Matter
Entrepreneurs don’t usually open their own businesses just for the joy of optimizing their sales funnel. They have a great idea or specific skill set they want to take to market, and then they just have to cobble together some sort of sales and marketing strategy out of things the business gurus write on their blogs or in their advice books. In too many cases, this leads to businesses tracking metrics that don’t really move the needle.
Sales and marketing aren’t the most inspiring topics for many managed service providers (MSPs) who love the tech and not necessarily the business of tech. As Mosaic451 senior cyber analyst Michael Jenks puts it, “I stay out of the sales and marketing world because it’s soul-crushing.”
