Qualified lead generation, which is the holy grail of B2B marketing, is being reinvented by online tools. Traditional outbound marketing relied upon scatter-shot techniques like advertising, direct mail, and events to attract prospects. Today, search engines and social networks have evolved this process into a much more targeted and conversation-focused approach.
Today's new breed of effective lead generation combines keyword optimization and link-building strategies (inbound marketing) with strategic participation in social networks (outbound marketing). Result: social media and search engines can deliver qualified leads at a dramatically lower cost than traditional means.
These new approaches to lead generation require more active participation by marketing organizations than in the past, but the payoff is in higher quality leads, faster closing times, and less waste.
This presentation covers:
*The power of long tail search optimization
*How to identify prospects who are seeking your products and services through public social networks
*How analytics and social CRM can dramatically improve lead quality
*How to target messages to reach prospects at the optimal point in the sales cycle
