Show Managers love Bartizan's Tradeshow App, iLeads.

Posted by Joanna Stasuk on Dec 16, 2010 12:09:30 PM

iLeads makes lead follow up easy for exhibitors and this makes show management happy. A prioritized lead is a hot lead.  iLeads for Blackberry will launch second quarter 2011. Exhibitors can use their own devices or they can rent iPod touches or iPads from show management. Since the April 2010 launch, iLeads has won TSEA's Breakthrough Award and Tradeshow Executive's Innovation Award.

"We chose to use Bartizan’s lead retrieval app because it’s very easy to use, did not require bar-coding, there are no minimum on app purchases, no fees, did not require us to coordinate the rentals, and Bartizan’s great customer service!

Our goal was to give our exhibitors a lead retrieval system that was easy and affordable.

This was our first time using any lead retrieval system for our meeting and Bartizan allowed us to incorporate our current registrant database, without any special requirements. We simply sent them our registrant list and they took care of the rest! The only thing we had to do was pass out iPod touch rentals on-site and they provided a technical support number for any on-site issues.

We did not pay anything out of pocket. All we did was send them our registrant list and they took care of the promotions, uploads, and everything! Our exhibitors loved having the ability to use the system and gather member information without taking home a pile business cards to sort through."

Interesting New Research on Trade Show Lead Retrieval and Management - Debunks the 80% No Follow up Myth!

Posted by Joanna Stasuk on Sep 21, 2010 10:40:17 AM

EXHIBITOR magazine conducted its 2010 Sales Lead Survey and discovered some interesting trends. They found that despite the oft quoted industry myth that 80 percent of leads never receive post-show follow-up, four out of 10 respondents report that upwards of 80 percent of the leads they collect at trade shows and events do receive follow-up communication.

In terms of lead qualification, only 34 percent of respondents have a formal lead-scoring or lead-ranking process designed to prioritize follow-up or gauge the potential value of each lead (the majority of those scoring/ranking procedures were developed jointly by the sales and marketing departments). And those leads are typically qualified during formal or informal conversations between staffers and attendees (only 18 percent use surveys to qualify leads). But despite the importance placed on those staffer/attendee conversations, nearly 20 percent of survey respondents fail to train their booth staffers on lead-qualification tactics.

Today's lead retrieval systems make it easier to qualify leads. The iPhone's easy interface is a natural fit for lead retrieval - check out the world's first app for lead retrieval here.
