A recent research paper from Outfunnel and Copper showed that B2B salespeople are more likely than B2B marketers to say their company's sales and marketing teams cooperate effectively. The survey included 151 B2B marketers and 151 B2B salespeople. Only 43% of marketers agreed that the sales and marketing teams cooperate effectively, compared to 58% of salespeople.
