San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 06, 2012
Andrew Janis, Senior Marketing Consultant with Evantage Consulting, will present “B2B Lead Scoring” at the eMetrics Marketing Optimization Summit on March 7. The breakout session is part of the B2B Marketing Metrics track of the national conference, which targets companies that manage direct sales forces or distribution chains.
“B2B Lead Scoring” examines how Evantage Consulting helped its client create a product-launch website strategy to help identify potential customers. Three elements formed the core of this strategy: creating an engaging and intuitive user experience to drive site usage, integrating analytics from the beginning to capture leads and measure performance, and adherence with privacy laws.
“This combination resulted in a website that was converting nearly 40% of site visits to leads vs the one half of one per cent – prior to the strategy,” said Janis. Analytics tools allowed Evantage to give the client’s sales teams prospecting lists with potential customers’ company names and product interests while protecting privacy.
To deliver leads, Evantage kept the website simple. There were no long forms or requests for unnecessary information that could discourage potential customers from responding .
Janis will present the product launch microsite case study and will also cover the challenges companies may face when lead generation strategies use free tools. “When using marketing analytics tools, it’s important to have smart people on the implementation team who understand how to use the tools,” Janis explains. “We have to work within privacy laws and terms of service as we generate meaningful leads.”
