Which function would be the winner? Who’d take the crown as the business owners’ can’t-live-without tool? And perhaps more interestingly, could one exist without the other?

When entrepreneurs are looking to increase their bottom line, or attract more of the best customers and clients, then they often look for outside solutions. They look towards social media platforms, or advanced sales tactics, or an external provider to solve their problems and create processes that bring in leads on autopilot. Of course, bringing in a regular stream of new business is absolutely essential, and it’s never going to be too far from your mind if you’re looking to step up to the next level.
