Actionable Lead Generation Tactics For Management Software Vendors
The management software industry has become an overcrowded marketplace transforming it into a dog-eat-dog competition where everyone wants to have a bigger piece of the pie

Sales Perfection Is Impossible!
There are so many potential variables and unknowns in any complex B2B sales environment that the idea of running a completely perfect sales campaign feels like an impossible dream (or more accurately a hallucination)
"That's why rigid sales scripts, standard sales presentations and canned product demonstrations are largely ineffective in convincing the modern prospect to move forward with you - they expect more than that from you.

But it is entirely possible - and I would argue, very necessary - to focus on avoiding predictable and preventable errors when pursuing a sales opportunity.

Preventable errors fall into three major categories: errors of ignorance, errors of application and errors of competence..."

8 Of The Best Social Media Analytics Tools For 2020
Social media analytics is an essential component of a social marketing manager's work
"Of course, the instant gratification of likes and new followers after you post something is nice. But without seeing the big picture (which you can only see by diving into your social media analytics) you're left in the blind about the efficiency of your digital strategy. You can't be sure how successful your brand is on social media without analyzing your profiles' performance. Most social media platforms give you some kind of performance insights, some do it better (hey, Facebook!) and some worse (looking at you, Instagram). So what's the point of social media analytics tools? ..."

Skill Gaps?
Would you say skill gaps exist for key roles within your organization? If you said 'yes', you're not alone
"According to a LinkedIn survey of 2000 business leaders, 57% said that soft skill gaps existed, and felt the top four development areas were:

  • Leadership

Are You Going To The Penthouse Or The Basement?
Who you surround yourself with in life matters
"When is the last time you took inventory of who you spend the most time with each day? If you aren't surrounded by people who are winners, those who are smarter than you, it may be time to revisit your closest influencers.

I learned just how important it is to have successful people around you. These people are also known as your 'inner circle'..."

Do Men Mentor More Than Women Professionally? Weigh In
"How many of you have a mentor?" I asked. Three hands went up

As each participant listed the names of their mentors, I saw a trend and I'll be honest, I was a bit dismayed because I've seen it again and again out there in various industries. Participant responses:..."
