Probably 9 out of 10 high-ACV companies are sales-driven, where marketing plays just a supportive role. Is that a problem?
No, it’s an opportunity for you if you’re able to think about growth holistically and integrate marketing, sales and customer success. So that everyone is rowing in the same direction.

– launching joint campaigns and programs
– sharing data and qualitative experience regularly
