Here is a common scenario for a Sales or Marketing Manager. You receive an email announcing it is time to register to exhibit at an upcoming trade show. It’s a tradeshow you have participated in before. You immediately ask yourself: “Should we exhibit at this show again this year? Times are tight. Is this show worth the time and expense?”
Then you begin to think: “Well, did we get any good leads from the show last year? If we did, maybe we should go back. But did we? What happened to all those leads from last year’s show anyway? Did any of them turn into anything? What about the show leads from the year before that?”
Microsoft Dynamics CRM software can help you answer these questions.
Dynamics CRM Marketing Campaigns enables you to build a marketing campaign around a trade show or any other event designed to bring you leads.
