A commentary today on the back of the Sports Pull-out Section by David Walsh of the Sunday Times is interesting; not just that it was in the Sports Section about the departure of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from Arsenal to Liverpool, but also that it has a strong message for us marketers:
He read a piece on the US-based Ribbonfarm website, a space that offers unusual philosophical takes on familiar and new subjects. It read like it was 3,000 words too long, Venkat Rao explaining how a new phrase had crept unbidden into his head during an evening out with his wife at Veggie Grill, a "fast-casual" restaurant that offers the ease and convenience of fast food but with a more inviting sit-down atmosphere.
The Verizon Networkfleet event program was focused on high volume lead acquisition through participation in B2B tradeshows, partnership with Verizon Wireless events and association memberships. With this high volume the team was strained to reliably capture the data from lead forms that had been used at all events up until I joined the team and identified this as an operations issue. Working on processing lead forms was distracting from the teams’ capacity to plan other shows and had to be addressed to prevent leads from going cold waiting to be captured into our CRM system.
The trade show industry is constantly evolving to the to meet the demands of the attendees and exhibitors. Peter Gillett has been at the forefront of those changes over the last 20 years and teams up with Sales Lead Management Radio to discuss.
Since the dawn of marketing, tradeshow and other in-person events have been the largest items in the B2B marketing budget, often exceeding more than 50 percent of the total budget. And yet, have you ever seen an ROI report on tradeshow activity proving this huge investment is paying off? If they exist they are as rare as Beluga caviar.
Sadly, most event managers focus on creating great looking booths and coming home with a load of leads at the end of the show. There’s no regard for quality. It’s all about volume because unfortunately, quantity (vs quality) is how their organization measures their success. Those tasked with this job, have no interest or time for lead follow-up or ROI; they've already moved on to producing the next show.
