The “B-to-B Lead Generation Handbook” is the culmination of tens of thousands of hours of peer-driven research into the field. The step-by- step instructions take the reader through all of the elements that go into campaign strategy and implementation. It provides real-life examples to demonstrate how the variety of tactics can work effectively. The research data in the handbook lets B-to-B marketers find out what’s working and what’s not in the marketplace. The over 300 Case Studies, creative samples, and examples are from high tech, professional services, manufacturing, and other industries. They demonstrate how these companies used traditional media, trade shows, white papers, the Internet, and Web 2.0, and how well these tactics worked for them.
