My weekly interaction with marketing...


I swear to god every MQL i've had this week has more chance of buying a ticket on Daddy Bezos' Space Flight than it does buying a data license.


To those of you who say I shouldn't expect anything from marketing... It is their dang job but I also gave up hope a long time ago. Be a salesperson, be jaded.


P.S Squid game is a banger though ain't it?

I consider Marketing leads to be mere contacts unless they specify them to be MQLs in a meeting.

Yep, same here. Joy is that that 'great' ones they're passing over are their mql'sย

Marketing loves to bring a bunch of low budget, international garbage our way. Always ends up being more trouble than itโ€™s worth ๐Ÿ˜ตโ€๐Ÿ’ซ

The other day marketing bought a bunch of โ€œhot leadsโ€ from some random vendor - all generic contacts with HQ numbers and no trigger eventsโ€ฆ..yay gotta love them peepsโ€ฆ. and are now claiming that we canโ€™t do our job and convert themโ€ฆ. meanwhile they take 18 months to make a vertical specific whitepaper and blast it outโ€ฆ.

I feel ya - every morning marketing celebrates how they have brought in X amount of MQLsโ€ฆwhich none are actually relevantโ€ฆthe next day moreโ€ฆor which are ones where is sales lot have worked on and they just opened an email marketing sent. Out of all the shit we give marketing, if all else fails I may just start working in marketing as it seems rather easy
