"Every element of marketing needs to be coordinated," states Wincko. "From the type of content you create and share, to determining where to best engage key decision makers and influencers across channels, to identifying ways to enhance sales and service effectiveness. The only way for marketers to create exceptional experiences for buyers – and to optimize the lead-to-revenue path – is to use a holistic, buyer-led customer lifecycle strategy based on data and analytics to optimize interactions."
