Marketing's Role in the End-to-End Revenue Cycle

Who is responsible when revenue stalls and marketing efforts don't drive new and repeat sales? Are the leads just bad? Is the sales process broken? Did customer support drop the ball on contract renewals or implementation? Before the finger-pointing begins, consider that all three departments are integral to your company's revenue cycle.

Enter "Revenue Operations" or "RevOps," the fastest growing job in the U.S. right now according to a jobs analysis by LinkedIn and featured in a March, 2023 article by Forbes Magazine. In simple terms, RevOps is a practice that aligns an organization's operational functions with the sales, marketing, and customer service teams.
