Demand Generation is not a function in and of itself. Demand Generation is a team sport.

It requires product marketing to support us with information and feedback from our customers. Combining that with how we can best support them from a solution standpoint. Brand and messaging. That team is very important in what we do. Aligning with the sales team and the BDR team is super important as well.

We need to help the inbound BDRs understand what they’re trying to do as they best serve our customers. We need to support with information and air coverage to our outbounds team and we always need to be aligned with sales. Every message that we deliver needs to touch marketing BDRs. With sales, we need to have perfect alignment throughout with what our messaging is with what we’re trying to deliver and support the audience with. We also need to understand this process all the way through to revenue.

So aligning with those teams becomes crucial in making sure that we don’t put all this emphasis and work in at the beginning from say the demand gen team and then we forget to connect with the BDRs and the sales team and we end up dropping off at some point. All of that work that we did does not get the
revenue because we didn’t have alignment with the BDRs and sales team so that they knew what to expect as we drove this audience through and converted
them into potential opportunities
