Twelve Days of Christmas to Make the Number

December 26, 2012 at 12:15 AM

Sales Benchmark Index would like to thank our clients.  You trusted our team to help you make the number in 2012.  Here is a look back at the past year through the lens of a Classic Christmas Carol.  Enjoy and feel free to submit your own suggestions.   

On the twelfth day of Christmas my Sales & Marketing Effectiveness firm sent to me:
Twelve board of directors drumming,
Eleven sales regions piping past quota,
Ten new major accounts a-leaping,
Nine regional sales VP’s dancing,
Eight lead nurture campaigns a-milking,
Seven buyer personas mapped a-swimming to the sale process,  
Six digit bonus a-laying,
Five golden content marketing campaigns generating leads,
Four qualified leads a day from calling lead generation reps,
Three sales operations hens orchestrating ideal size & structure,
Two months from turtle dove to ramped sales reps,
And a fantastic 2012 where I met my number
