March 3-5 will see this year’s Ecobuild event take place at ExCeL London; and if last year is anything to go by, it’s going to be HUGE! The 2014 Ecobuild event had over 44,500 attendees, 787 exhibitors and 100+ conference and seminar sessions. Whichever way you look at it, this is a fantastic opportunity to generate leads and revenue for your business.
When it comes to outsourcing B2B marketing activities there are a myriad of different factors to take into account. Things like the size of your company, the product/service you offer, the complexity of your sales process – these are all things that will affect your decision when choosing a B2B marketing partner.

In management, if your plate isn’t full then it’s probably overflowing. There never seem to be enough hours in the day to achieve everything on your to-do list and every time there is an opportunity for a break, something inevitably pops up or a deadline moves.

As discussed previously in this blog, B2B lead generation activity requires huge amounts of research and planning, which is why we created the planning manual and accompanying spreadsheet. Only by reviewing past data from your marketing and sales activity can you begin to plan your future strategies.
The strongest foundation for any lead generation activity is the traditional marketing channels; email, direct mail, telemarketing, events, website, Pay-Per-Click and media advertising. But, in order to utilise them to their full potential, you need to work out what works best for your business and your prospects. What works for one organisation, may not work for another. So, there is always a need to individually review the results for each of the channels used in your past lead generation activity.
