Getting qualified leads from trade shows must be a mystery because so few people do it. It takes a behind the scenes expert to solve the problem and reveal the easiest ways to create what salespeople want most: qualified sales leads. During this program Victor Kippes, founder and CEO of Validar will share the secrets about qualifying sales leads which he has learned from thousands of trade shows. The host is Jim Obermayer.
Why It's Important
"A trade show is not about quantity of leads, it is about the quality. A quality sales lead is a qualified prospect that has the authority to make a decision and a time frame to pull the trigger."
