It goes without saying that sales and marketing remains the most important function of any business for it is impossible to sustain and compete in the cut throat business world without adding up to top line. The money that comes in is used for expansions, research & development and to strengthen other business processes. Such a vital business function and yet many companies struggle to find alternate revenue streams or effective sales techniques and in the process end up either under or overspending their marketing budget.
