Lead Generation Friday Forum


  • Lead Gen That Works

    Brendan finally figured out why B2B was boring: checkbox marketing.

    Daily emails. Weekly blogs. Bi-weekly podcasts. Monthly webinars. Annual events.

    But it doesn't work. We've reached the apex of timing + channel marketing strategy. Time to try something that does.

    In this session, Brendan Hufford unveils four ad-free lead gen strategies that you can implement TODAY:

    • Community-led marketing, the moat that keeps competition away
    • Demand-focused content, the secret weapon that builds massive brand awareness, attributable customer generation, and a talent pipeline
    • Revenue-focused content, targeting your in-market audience using a new "3S" strategy that directly impacts revenue pipeline
    • Authority-building, to become the journalistic center of your industry, with influencers and amplifiers knocking down your door—plus, industry insights not found anywhere else
