It’s been an interesting year! When we launched the Sales 2.0 Network back in March, the issues we covered were focused on growing revenue, and maximizing pipeline velocity. As the year progressed, focus switched for many of our readers to surviving the incredible turbulence we witnessed in the second half of the year. In the last month however, we’ve seen significant improvement as companies realize that business goes on, and in the end, the old adage of “Nothing happens until someone sells something” is more true than ever.
Here at The TAS Group, we been really busy as the year closes out, and I have not had much opportunity to post to the network. But I wanted to take this opportunity to wish you Happy Holidays and thank you for your readership, comments and contributions during the year. As you plan for 2009, I think you can be assured that challenges will persist, and effective selling is more important than ever. With that in mind, I thought it might be useful to gather together the posts and topics that you said delivered most value during the year, and they are listed below.
Also, at the end of this post, in perhaps a fitting alternative viewpoint on 2008, I include here for you, a video that was compiled on December 10 (Human Rights Day, and the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights) by Witness, a charity that you might recall we support. The human rights issues Witness champions always brings valuable perspective.
