Sales enablement is where sales and marketing overlap. It can mean different things for different companies, but it often involves content including whitepapers, pitch decks, case studies and emails (aka anything that helps the sales team educate and nurture prospective clients).

According to Highspot’s “State of Sales Enablement 2021” research report, sales enablement is becoming increasingly important and recognized in sales and marketing teams. The proportion of teams with a dedicated role in enabling sales jumped from 59 percent in 2019 to 74 percent in 2021.
