One of the most significant conflicts in most companies tends to take place between Marketing and Sales. Marketing departments more often than not have to comply with industry regulations, restrictions put in place by traffic or affiliate networks, budgetary constraints, and in many cases, geographical limitations.
In particular, in the financial services and insurance industries, any marketing message has to adhere to some stringent regulations. The use of imagery and language has to conform to the applicable rules. And that's not only internal regulations. Traffic networks will also restrict certain types of creatives and landing pages.
Sales, on the other hand, want a constant supply of interested, qualified leads. That might call for marketing campaigns that fall under any marketing department restrictions, meaning these particular campaigns can't be run.
Another cause of conflict can be down to the sources the marketing department is running campaigns on, Display Ads, PPC, Social Media, Push Notifications, Native Ads. The list goes on and on. Each one of these sources has a different tone. Leads coming in from social media, for example, will have an expectation of the way their client journey needs to go.
Any disconnect between your marketing and sales departments is where conflicts start, such as:
- Unqualified leads coming into your CRM
- Marketing isn't integrated directly with your CRM
- Clients not segmented properly
- Tracking not implemented correctly
If your marketing and sales departments don't work together, if your systems don't communicate, conflict arises. Sales will complain about low-quality leads, marketing will complain about low conversion rates and high churn.
