Boston—Companies that align sales and marketing functions generated 47% of the sales forecast pipeline from “marketing sourced leads,” according to a report by Harte-Hanks' Aberdeen Group.

The survey, “Sales and Marketing Aligment: Collaboration+Cooperation=Peak Peformance,” also indicates that companies that align sales and marketing produce an average increase of 20% in top line revenue.
