Rethinking Prospecting: Freeing Up the Sales Force for Selling

Yori Nelken, CEO, Leadspace
Most sales reps spend less than half of their time actually selling (McKinsey , 2011).

In our connected world customers are leaving digital fingerprints in LinkedIn, Facebook and other social networks. They tweet, blog and share content. Even those who are not active online are being mentioned by friends and colleagues.

However, many sales and marketing organizations still rely on traditional, aging tools to find their customers.

New technologies enable you to hone in on high-quality prospects based on what they do, the products they use, their skills and more. This translates into a flow of new leads delivered directly into your CRM when you need them. It also means improved sales efficiency and better closing ratios.

Yori Nelken, CEO at Leadspace, presents the new world of sales and marketing, and demonstrates the innovative intelligence tools that take sales prospecting to a whole new level.

  • Partners are incredibly valuable when it comes to B2B marketing; they can unlock your marketing potential by accessing a wide customer base. But there are also some challenges: keeping control of content and channels while maximising the impact of your initiatives.

    In this webinar we will show you how Microsoft used their partners to amplify their content through social media.
  • As technology investments are increasingly important to marketers, the marketing operations function is developing rapidly within organizations. A relatively new role in the marketing world, this function is becoming essential as marketing teams adopt and integrate more tools and technologies.

    For those modern B2B marketing teams who are using webinars as a demand generation tactic, it is critical from a process and efficiency standpoint that the right webinar program metrics are being tracked across those investments: webinar platform, marketing automation and CRM. Join this session to learn how best in class marketers are successfully structuring, reporting on and measuring their webinar programs.

    This session will highlight best practices to achieve webinar program success, including:

    - Reporting on webinar program performance and ROI
    - Scoring webinar data in your marketing automation system
    - Routing webinar leads and engagement information to sales
    - Establishing a set of webinar program KPIs
  • Join to learn how to:

    1. develop a messaging strategy based on "mobile moments"
    2. intelligently message your guests "in the moment" based off where they are in their shopper journey
    2. leverage a users context: where they are, where they’ve been, what they like and how they want to receive messages
    3. use targeting to boost mobile message response rates four to seven times greater than non-targeted messages
  • Event sponsorship can be the biggest purchase a marketer will make. If done well, events provide a unique platform for face-to-face interaction with prospects, which is unrivalled through other marketing programmes.

    However, with a growing focus on ROI, they can also be a costly mistake if not executed correctly.

    In this webinar, Phil Cooper from Closer Still Media will use his experience of organizing one of the largest cloud computing tradeshows in the world, to share success stories and practical tips that will leave you stand full to bursting.
