B2B organisations have long based their marketing strategies around campaigns that cast the net far and wide in an effort to appeal to as many companies as possible in the target market.

However, it seems that even with the best will in the world, there are many organisations that continue to struggle with turning the theory into a working, profitable practice.Marketing, Sales, Sales and Marketing : One Team
