On average every year billions of dollars are spent annually on content creation, and that is not an issue, the issue arises when it goes wasted with time; instead of reaching out to the salesforce. Sales reps could need content at any point of a deal lifecycle, to enhance their information copiously and efficiency substantially.

Content marketing plus sales equal to sales enablement optimization. Rather than creating invisible boundaries, sales enablement dissolves the distances and does nothing but aim your salesforce with the best of tools and techniques.

Content that is not limited to the docs, sheets, and PSDs of the marketers only, but is shared with the salesforce in a way it can be provided to the customer whenever needed is the type that bakes life into the entire sales funnel. This content should aid the salesforce in precisely determining the what, why and how of their company to the potential buyers.

Helps bring Transparency in Company

In a way, marketers need to know the conversion rates of MQL rather than just knowing the number of meetings set up a particular week, giving them a great sense of well-deserved sense of achievement.

Also, with the transparency sales rep can receive advice and recommendation from the rest of the team, giving them the clearest picture of the entire organization, helping them to close deals and generate new ones quickly.
