How would you like to see a plethora of buyers lurking around each opportunity in your sales pipeline? I mean all the buyers, including those that don’t directly engage, but show some level of interest. The ones that don’t expose themselves. Buyers who are included in email threads and meetings, but haven’t been added to the CRM by sales reps. Or what about buyers that are exploring your website and looking at your solution, but aren’t included in sales’ emails or meetings?
