BMA - Blending Traditional and New Media to Drive Leads and Close Deals

Companies big and small are spending a lot of time and resources implementing social media strategies. B2B social media is the new black. The thing is, too often companies are following the fad but forgetting to incorporate their tried-and-true methodologies to go along with it. Without a well thought-out lead generation process to support and complement your social media campaigns, they will never reach their true potential—or ROI.

The presenters are well versed in B2B lead generation campaigns and demand management for leading technology brands. They will explore the ways well-known B2B brands are missing big opportunities to drive new business opportunities through their online and social media campaigns. You will walk away with three new ideas that you can start leveraging immediately to improve your B2B social media efforts and drive new, qualified sales that you may be missing today.

• Any B2B marketers who are chartered with developing and/or implementing social media strategies and campaigns for their organizations
• Any B2B marketers who are looking for new ideas on how to drive lead generation outcomes from social media investments
What You’ll Take Away:
• New ideas for making social media actually work in tandem with B2B lead generation
• Examples of how leading B2B brands are making the most of their social media efforts to drive pipeline
