Social Media and The Evolution Towards Simply Marketing | Part 2

This comment has just been received and deserves its own post

All great ideas (see Grey Review item below) however I would moreover include a further item to it: think about doing a virtual event. By applying Virtual events to marketing challenges, you can get the word out to prospective customers, produce new leads and help out close business by now in the pipeline. There are small-budget ways to hold virtual events and there are more robust, feature rich and scalable solutions (like InXpo, ON24 or Stream57) that are great for putting on events that include virtual exhibits, informative conference sessions, product demos as well as networking with attendees. Although people are hesitant to travel, they are very prone to be present at an event that they can attend from their desk. Even if you are just doing a manufactured goods demo or better yet, offering several educational information in say a webinar or webcast, a virtual event will get you additional coverage and more leads very cost effectively. Visit http://www.virtualedge.org to discover further about how to do this and locate virtual event providers.

  1. All great ideas but I would also add another item to it: consider doing a virtual event/meeting. Virtual events and meetings are a great way to stay in front of customers, generate new leads and help close business already in the pipeline. These solutions are being deployed so rapidly by companies that the market is projected to exceed $18 billion by 2015.
