Load the Pipeline Marketing
Did you know that Microsoft Dynamics CRM is not just for managing your customers and sales efforts?  Microsoft Dynamics CRM offers marketing management and automation so you can market more effectively, improve productivity, and gain actionable insight into your marketing campaigns.
When sales numbers are below targets, the sales team is pointing fingers at marketing because they aren't bringing in enough leads and marketing is saying it is the sales department fault because they don't know how to follow-up on a lead. Does this sound familiar?
Ultimately both sales and marketing need to have access to a unified set of business data and then use that "single version of truth" as the basis for both business planning and subsequent sales and marketing activities.  Click here to see a demo of how you can manage a marketing campaign using Microsoft Dynamics CRM.  Want to learn more?

Doug Tatum's - No Man's Land
No Man's LandWhat to Do When Your Company Is TOO BIG to Be Small but TOO SMALL to Be Big
Many small businesses experience an awkward stage of corporate growth.  A transitional time, when the company is too big to be small and too small to be big.  Every company enters this territory but not every company comes out of it. 
This book describes the 4 M's of Growth:
1.   Understand your Model
2.   Realign with your Market
3.   Hire your Senior Management
4.   Raise your Money
This is a great book for entrepreneurs who are in that transition period.  They need to step away from the day-to-day operations and honestly evaluate yourself and your company in light of the "4 M's".  This could help transition your company through No Man's Land.
