Episode 13: CMO? You're Fired with Nick Eades

Dom is joined by co-host Shane Redding, owner of B2B Digital Marketing Consultancy Think Direct, to interview Nick Eades about how the role of Chief Revenue Officer (CRO) is beginning to challenge the work & value of the Chief Marketing Officer (CMO).

In their chat, Nick tracks how the CRO has invaded the CMO’s space. The team discuss why companies need to refocus on existing customers, the three V’s of a sales pipeline (volume, velocity and value) and why you shouldn’t be afraid of raising price.

Later on in the show, you also hear Shane and Nick explain why marketing needs to make friends with sales and why companies in growth mode die of indigestion; not starvation.
