In today's economy, even small mistakes affect your company's bottom line and impede your selling success.

In today's fast-paced B2B economy, efficiency and intentionality are two things that never go out of style – especially for companies that sell to tugboats and towing businesses.
CRM (Customer Relationship Management) technology is standard fare for most B2B enterprises.
When used properly, CRM can enhance your company's interactions with customers and prospects. If you don't currently use CRM, there's no better time than the present to get started. Companies that already use a CRM solution need to analyze their processes to make sure it is being used to its full potential.
In the B2B tugboats and towing business industry, the inefficient use of CRM can put your business at a competitive disadvantage.
Since it's impossible to separate sales and marketing, your company's marketing mix plays a central role in bottom line sales revenue. The industry's leading sellers employ multichannel marketing strategies and prioritize channels that target decision makers.
Although there are no one-size-fits-all marketing strategies for tugboats and towing businesses, B2B sellers can realize a competitive advantage from outsourcing lead generation to a third-party provider. Experian and other vendors maintain accurate and up-to-date lists of tugboats and towing businesses. For many businesses, these lists set the stage for the rest of the sales cycle.
It's also important to regularly assess your personnel and overall selling strategy. Internal review processes should leverage metrics and sales benchmarks as well as direct input from tugboats and towing businesses themselves.
If necessary, take action to reshuffle your strategy and team in order to accommodate changes in the marketplace.
