A number of organization still do confuse Sales and Marketing as same function. Assign the responsibility of marketing to their Sales guys. I have done the same myself.
So here are two cents of what I have observed.
Marketing is like spreading net for geese. And Sales is shooting the trapped geese.
……..Dont remember who said it J
Now Marketing is all about reaching your target audience. Being present at the time and place when they are looking for service providers like you..Being searched by right people.
Sales is then the process of understanding and meeting the requirements. Be able to get that final sign off ..whoops it takes a while and effort.
I watched a movie very recently “Kung Fu Panda”. Pretty neat, I enjoyed every moment.
It’s a movie about “Belief in yourself”. It’s an animation movie – where a Tortoise is the Head of Kung Fu clan. At the time Panda – Hero of the movie was down and upset about not being able to perform, Tortoise came and told him – Enjoy today. Today is a gift and that’s why its called “Present”. So true.
As the lead of Search Value family, one of the roles is to keep all family members happy and enjoy Present.
This is really a very helpful service offered by Google AdWords which saves the time & efforts made in constantly monitoring and adjusting the CPC bids. Here, we just have to set the max CPA, and Conversion Optimizer monitors and adjusts the CPC bids based on the CPA goal. And the most interesting aspect of this is that it is totally FREE!
Search is synonymous to Marketing. Any organisation would like to be searched by its relevant Target audience.
So our journey starts from Search and ends with Value Creation.
Hyphen ‘-‘ is symbolic of the journey that our client travel along with us to reach the Value. Hyphen also marks the capability of team. Though a name SearchValue would have been more enviable but if one is choosing to name URLs it is always advisable that one picks up hyphen ‘-‘ over underscore ‘_’.
