“We were thrilled to have Ben participate in the conference,” says David Erlandson, Caslon GM and organizer of the AppForum. “Our attendance was up 20% this year, in no small part due to our great speaker lineup. His experience in direct response, conversion marketing, and willingness to share it with our audience of digital print leaders, helped make the conference a huge success.” “PODi’s AppForum is the one event people who are winning with digital print don’t want to miss,” says Ben Allen. “That’s why being part of it is such a great experience.”
Ben Allen’s presentation focused on using relevant, integrated nurture marketing solutions to create high-growth opportunities for digital print.
“Companies of all sizes and industries spend millions of dollars generating qualified leads for their sales teams. However, all too often, there’s no strategic, well executed nurture strategy in-place to further nurture and cultivate leads as they evaluate the product. Using digital print technology along with a mix of interactive marketing channels allows marketers to produce relevant and more timely prospect communications – ultimately leading to increased sales and higher ROI.”
