Chief Marketing Officer

Marketing-Powered Sales Performance

Enable Sales Channels to Win an Unfair Share™

As a chief marketing officer, you are pulled in two directions: The CEO expects you to identify and activate the most profitable routes-to-market, while the direct sales team and CSO rely on you to provide sales assets. In most B2B organizations, this means direct sales, yet you don’t have the power to get ahead of sales and lead revenue. Juxtapose those expectations with the reality that your return on marketing investment continues to crash, and you feel stuck on how to embrace your current situation and turn these realities into a competitive advantage.

Mereo’s solutions can help you find that competitive advantage by aligning your company’s compelling story precisely to your buyers’ needs. Our solutions equip your salespeople with differentiated messaging and captivating value, and enable the sales team with point-of-sale tools and techniques that can enable your company to win an unfair share™ of pursuits.

You may ask yourself, can marketing really generate demand or does it just capture demand through more effective methods? Does your sales team have the capabilities to employ value-based prospecting campaigns? What has kept you from successfully leveraging partner and client communities to source and accelerate more business? How can your team “revenue-enable” sales channels to engage in meaningful conversations with buyers across the buying cycle?
