Follow Up with Me…PLEASE: Don't Waste Trade Show Leads!

Picture this: you’ve just returned from a trade show (as I just did). You spend three to five days at the show, total, between setup and booth duty, and you invest valuable time harvesting leads and opportunities. Your company has made a significant investment just having a presence at the show. Acquiring a trade show lead is not an inexpensive proposition!
