Nurturing leads is not new, but is has become an essential, not an optional opportunity, for every B2B company (and also considered purchase B2C products). It should be considered essential, because essentially salespeople aren’t following up leads any better than they did when lead nurturing first appeared in the 90’s. In the program this week, DemandGen founder and CEO David Lewis discussed why lead nurturing is no longer an option using four arguments than cannot be denied. The host is Jim Obermayer

About DemandGen International
Imagine if marketing mattered most at your organization. It can.
We provide you the people and processes to not only help you accelerate your marketing automation agenda, but to ensure marketing matters more within your organization.
Let’s face it, marketing has historically been viewed as much more of an art than a science. The fact is, even the best branding and promotional programs were often difficult to consistently link to the impact on the business. This lack of attribution to marketing made your budgets highly vulnerable and the entire demand generation process suspect. The good news is we’re in a new age. It’s an unprecedented era of cutting-edge marketing automation technology and analytics purpose-built to put marketing at the center of business growth.
There’s a beautiful spectrum of marketing cloud technology out there, from marketing automation systems, to integrated CRM platforms, to sophisticated predictive analytics solutions and thousands of other marketing technologies. It’s a spectrum that’s growing as deep as it is wide. So today’s real challenge is about applying these technologies to drive growth through integration, adoption, alignment, and execution. It’s about having an actionable vision with the right people, processes and experience to make it a reality. That’s the challenge that DemandGen answers every day for competitive companies around the globe. www.demandgen.com
