The ecosystem of tools and services aimed at helping your Sales Development efforts continues to expand.
After releasing the Tenbound Market Map V2 a few months ago, we were inundated with inbound responses of new vendors asking to be identified on the map.
Several new developments have taken place since V2:
DiscoverOrg is eating the world. DiscoverOrg has identified a clear need in the marketplace. Data is the oxygen of Sales Development and programs live or die based on the quality of the data available. It’s table stakes. DiscoverOrg has figured how to supply clean data through their homegrown processes and to augment through the acquisitions of Datanyze, Zoominfo and Neverbounce. They also have the ability to execute and whip-smart marketing. We see this domination trend continuing with more acquisitions and increased investment in 2020 and beyond.
Over the summer, Tenbound Research Labs organized the different sectors specific to the Sales Development landscape into this map to make it a bit easier to get an overview.
When we released the map and announced it at The Sales Development Conference, over 50 companies involved in Sales Development reached out to get on the map.
It seems we have more support than we ever dreamed of to score that next appointment and build more pipeline.
And of course, leave a comment below with what we missed, misclassified, forgot, etc.
Tenbound Research Labs stands ready to begin work on Version 3.
Anyone managing a Sales Development program realizes pretty quickly how important alignment is to the success or failure of your plan.
After experiencing the relationship between Sales and Marketing on many levels, I believe it all boils down to one word: trust.
Trust is a big word and it’s been written about extensively.
In this context, I’m talking about the trust built between Sales and Marketing leadership, and its importance to a successful Sales Development program.
Trust answers the questions: Does Sales leadership believe Marketing has their best interests in mind? Do they trust the metrics they’re getting from Marketing? Does Marketing trust Sales is taking the leads they are creating and following up properly? Can key players talk openly about their concerns and are those concerns followed up on?
