Getting visitors to your website isn’t difficult, getting them to inquire is another issue. Too many companies struggle with how to turn website traffic into inquiries and then leads. 3,000 visitors a month and three leads won’t get it, but few marketing managers know how to solve the problem. In this program, host Jim Obermayer interviews Janelle Johnson, Director of Demand Gen at ACT-On Software as she outlines how to turn visitors into leads.
