News Facts:

Laurie Beasley_Laurie Beasley, President of Beasley Direct Marketing, Inc. will be a featured speaker along with co-presenter Tom Judge, VP of Strategy, Direct Marketing Partners, at the Direct Marketing Association’s annual conference, DMA 13, in Chicago.  Ms. Beasley will be teaching a B2B marketing mini workshop on October 16, from 9:00 – 10:45 am. The workshop title is “Why It Takes 7-13+ Big Touches to Generate a Qualified B2B Sales Lead Today: Parts 1 and 2”. The workshop will address the need for sales teams to receive higher quality “sales-ready’ leads to hit their numbers, and how the marketing department is required to provide them.  But there’s a catch.  It often takes 7 to 13+ touch points to develop a suspect into a sales-ready lead. This is often 2 or 3 times the number of touches the marketing department ever makes.  Marketers must adapt to the “new normal” of planning to execute growing numbers of multi-channel, integrated marketing touches to achieve company sales goals.

The workshop will discuss:

  • What’s happening from the buyer’s perspective
  • Latest metrics around various contact strategies
  • Tips on adjusting plans in this new environment
  • Case studies from manufacturing to high tech, with real numbers and frank discussion

This session will give B2B marketers a complete playbook for adapting their plans to deliver truly qualified sales leads.
