Jerry Shereshewsky is a Senior Marketing Executive at Yahoo! Mr. Shereshewsky will share his insight on how the value of engagement is a necessary precondition for the sales process. In order to achieve maximum value from online marketing it is critical to understand whatÂs different about it and why. Too many marketers see the internet simply as Âyet anotherÂ media option. Traditional marketers think about the prospect in terms of immediate conquest -- getting to Yes! as quickly and cheaply as possible. Mr. Shereshewsky will point out how they can be more successful when approaching ÂonlineÂ marketing.
