FROM OUR BLOG:
It is time to take the gloves off and focus on the national tragedy that has plagued B2B sales for 50 years. The tragedy and failure lies squarely at the doorstep of sales managers that are given inquiries and leads and do not make it a policy that their sales people follow them up.
It is a tragedy for the sales manager that is too stubborn or unwitting to know when he or she has been given a gift for making quota; tragedy for the salespeople who are not led and taught and convinced that their future lies in the leads given to them by marketing; tragedy for the stock holders that suffer as 2-20% of every revenue dollar is spent on marketing and 90% of that is wasted.

Internet radio is great, because while others think eyeballs are good, we think ears are better. Ears on internet radio listen for 20-30 minutes at a time. These aren't clicks, these are people who want to listen to interviews, experts, commentators, tips and tricks, humor and stories; this is live (and yes replayed) internet radio programming. And you, your company, your products and your story can be on internet radio for pennies per listener hour.
Internet radio is increasingly a popular source for information. And now, after more than three years, and 175 programs and interviews (with 275 C-level executives) which brought 40,000 hours of programming to listeners, the Sales Lead Management Association is expanding from its own radio show and launching its internet radio channel, SLMALive.
The SLMALive Channel will initially have eight, 30-minute program slots every Thursday. Eventually, we will expand into a second and third day of programming. The thought behind the channel is to deliver continuous hours of programming for listeners, though their computers, tablets, and even smartphones, while they work or on the go, or from their iTunes subscription. I am listening to an episode right now as I write this (The Eight Pillars of Demand Generation for Revenue Acceleration).
SLMALive programs will focus on marketing and sales solutions for B2B and B2C C-level listeners, as well as others employed in marketing and sales roles.
- Is easier to produce than a webinar and hugely less expensive.
