In this seminar you will learn the essentials of generating qualified leads and tracking them to closure. Sales people are more productive when they are standing in front of qualified prospects. So how do you provide them with the leads that will increase their productivity by 200%, 300% or more?
Using examples from such leading companies as IBM, Sprint and Dun & Bradstreet, this seminar reviews the process of lead generation campaign planning and execution, and then focuses in depth on how to qualify and nurture inquiries, and convert them to the kinds of leads that sales people will love. Finally, you will learn how to track the leads to closure and connect the revenue back to the specific marketing campaign, so you can deliver a demonstrable ROI, even in a multi-channel environment.
