You might have great solutions and distinct advantages over your competitors, but if you can’t get out in front of them you can’t get the sales you need.

Today’s marketers and sellers need the right tools and processes in order to close deals faster. There’s an art to this digital craft and John Edwards has great tips and ideas for how you can “Accelerate Sales by Automating Your Marketing.” What are the latest trends and emerging technologies in the marketing and sales arena? What are the single most important things you should focus on to make your company findable? How can you get digital platforms to work together seamlessly? Learn the answers to these questions plus more during the upcoming episode of the “Asher Sales Sense” podcast on Asher Strategies Radio.
