Lead generation is defined as ”uncovering a potential opportunity/person who has an interest in purchasing your products or services. “ There are many ways to do this, including inbound/content marketing or outbound marketing via phone or text.
Here at Acadia, we embrace both of these methods, and we call it the OMNIBOUND™ approach.
Whatever your flavor is – you must be prepared before you begin, and be ready to manage and analyze your results. Be sure to focus on both the MATERIAL as well as the PROCESS. Yes, the PROCESS of lead generation.Read More
This time last year, I was staring at a spreadsheet. Fun, right?
The spreadsheet contained leads we’d just acquired from the 2013 AMTS (Advanced Manufacturing Technology Show) in Dayton, Ohio. Acadia DOES lead generation and lead nurturing (among other things), so we know just how valuable every lead can be. Last year, I blogged on the importance of following up with all of your tradeshow leads. It can be time-consuming and frustrating!
Speaking of which, I now find myself staring at yet another spreadsheet. This one holds our 2014 AMTS leads. This one got me thinking. We DID generate revenue from last year’s AMTS leads, and will initiate similar follow-up this year (again, see my blog). This is a good thing! But what about the leads from last year that haven’t converted yet? That were interested, curious or just not ready to move forward with our products and services? They’re still valuable!
