Publisher needed help with new product launches.
Selling To: VPs and Directors of Marketing Mid Market
Challenge: A UK based publisher’s sales were flat with the core offering static or in decline, as target decision makers were being flooded with a wave of new products and solutions. The company’s Sales Team had slipped into complacency as the account managers were focused on servicing existing accounts and reselling the same products and services. Through attrition, the company’s existing team did not know how to generate new business (there was no entrepreneurial spirit). They knew is was time for a new product launch.
