Sales and marketing teams play similar roles in a company. However, many business owners fail to understand the relationship between sales and marketing, costing them resources and the opportunity to efficiently scale their businesses. When it is understood, cultivated, and optimized, a balance of sales and marketing can create happy, long-term customers while boosting a company’s growth.


In this episode, I discuss the relationship between sales and marketing. I define what sales and marketing teams are and describe their tasks and responsibilities within a company. I explain how the collaboration between sales and marketing teams increases efficiency and creates long-term, happy clients. I also highlight why margin matters more than volume and underscore why business owners need to include sales and marketing together in their strategic plans.


“Sales and marketing are like a hand and a glove, like pepperoni and pizza, and like peanut butter and jelly.” - Justin Goodbread
