Commentary: James W. Obermayer, CEO of the SLMA.
Marketers are builders of wealth, but when will they take the credit they deserve?
In this short and punchy seven minutes, Obermayer pontificates on why he believes that marketers should take their rightful place as a builder of wealth. Without marketers creating a preference, raw inquiries and qualified leads, most salespeople would be off their quota attainment by 30-50% and sales expenses would soar. Come listen as Obermayer gives credit where credit is due, to marketing, the builders of wealth.

Subject: How to Estimate the number of Inquiries to make Forecast
Nothing happens in an organization without a sales forecast and yet few marketers take the forecast and estimate the number of inquiries and sales leads (qualified inquiries) that will be needed to make quota. Obermayer will tackle the subject in 7 minutes and also show the answer on the SLMA blog following the broadcast.

Author of “Read this First the Executives Guide to Social Media.” Social media has enabled Ron to combine his passion for storytelling with 25 years of high-tech business experience to help companies tell their own stories, in their own voice, rather than relying on third parties to do so.
