Lead Generation


The single biggest issue for B2B marketers is effective demand generation. I wrote an eight-part series on building an effective lead generation program a while back. To help readers who missed the series, I pulled all the posts together in order.

In this series, you’ll read the following posts:

1: The Right Mindset: Conversations, not campaigns
2: Sales and Marketing – One Team
3: Develop and intensify your Ideal Customer Profile 
4: Clear and Universal Lead Definition
5: Treat your marketing database as a valued asset
6: A Multi-modal lead generation portfolio approach
7: Effective lead management
8: Lead nurturing for lead development

  1. Brian,

    This is an exceptional post. Thanks for sharing this one. I love your points about The Right Mindset: Conversations, not campaigns – Customer interaction will feel more like customer service than mass marketing. That’s really brilliant.
