On episode #132 of the Rethink Marketing Podcast, Eric and Colin discuss a topic that used to be paramount to a successful career in sales: creating a sense of obligation. With a rise in the acceptance of socialist and Marxist thought, is there still a place for marketers and sales leaders to instill a sense of obligation with prospects? Is it antiquated to think that customers will want to reciprocate value?
