Sales is an ever-changing, ever-growing industry.

We’ve discovered that what worked yesterday, might not work today. What was relevant yesterday, might not be relevant tomorrow.

In years past, marketing was focused on creating content that supported sales efforts. But now, with inbound marketing and platforms like Hubspot, marketing is creating smart content that is generating tons of quality leads for sales departments.

There is a shift occurring in the industry, and it’s happening right before our eyes.
