This Week: Free Webinar, New (and Smart!) Tools

This June 8 and 9, we're assembling the best minds in the industry in Boston to share the strategies and tactics that are working now to improve lead generation and conversion at our B2B Forum.


In a special online presentation this Thursday, get a sneak peek of some of the great sessions we'll have at the conference and get valuable insights on marketing strategy – for free! Our own Roy Young talks with key presenters to get a realistic view on the issues, and what it will take to solve today's biggest B2B marketing dilemmas.

COOL BONUS: At the end of the live broadcast, we're going to randomly choose someone from the audience to receive one free registration to the conference. (You must be present at the end of the seminar to win.)

Any MarketingProfs member can attend this presentation. Register here.

And one more thing… have you checked out our smart and shiny new fleet of SmartTools yet? We have three of them in the "Members Only" section of our site now. Someone on Twitter compared the latest SmartTool product, SmartTools: Email Campaign Planner, to "advanced email marketing in a box." Check out the video that explains them. Or browse the FAQ.

Thanks for stopping by! As always, drop me a line with feedback, questions, or just to say hi.
