Do changes in B2B marketing and the buying cycle mean the end of the sales team?

Posted by Kenneth Connolly on 30-Oct-2013 11:39:00

The role of the B2B salesperson has dramatically changed. Since the beginning of time, outbound and push selling meant the salesperson was the automatic go-to source for information.
