About the Book
The New Rules of Lead Generation Marketing
Lead-generation marketing is the backbone of your company’s marketing efforts, the unseen force enabling you to bring in prospective customers and convert them into actual sales. Yet lead-generation is one of the least understood forms of marketing, with most marketing managers and executives forced to learn it on the job as they go.
Is your company only using one lead-generation tactic at a time? Is your current program sufficiently adapting to keep up with the latest methods? Are you still using the same techniques that served your organization well in the past…but may not be the most effective actions for your present needs?
Lead generation marketing is constantly changing…and many of the old rules just don’t apply anymore. Taking an in-depth, strategic look at the seven most-successful lead-generation approaches that companies are using today — including e-mail, direct mail, and search engine marketing; banner and social media advertising; cold calling; and trade shows — The New Rules of Lead Generation reveals how to synchronize the different lead generation methods into a cohesive program designed to efficiently, cost-effectively maximize results for your organization.
