Traditional Marketing Spend (media buy, direct mail, e- mail, teleprospecting, events) Traditional Sales Spend (field sales, inside sales, resellers, agents, retail, e-commerce) The middle of the funnel is the most common breakdown when connecting the sales and marketing funnel. Marketing is great at getting leads in at the top of the funnel and sales is great at closing deals at the bottom, but these teams are often working different opportunities. As leads fall out of the middle of the funnel, your business loses a deal…and the competition gains one.
