Executing a product launch without the full support of sales (pre & post-launch) is akin to going to a gunfight with a switch-blade.

For me, revenue team enablement, not just sales enablement, is a crucial program that product marketing should own, or at the very least, provide guidance and input.

The cost of selling to a prospect is (typically five to ten times) more significant than the cost of selling to an existing customer.
