It’s hard to image Star Wars to be a family film in the strictest sense. It is however a film that greatly involves a family. (And if the upcoming Episode VII is any indication, it looks like they’ll be extended family involved.)
Knowing that, it kind of makes you wonder: How many family businesses have the same quirks? The same history? The same drama? It just goes to show that sales leads that have this particular business trait aren’t always of the same stripe as the Cleavers.
It sounds poetic. When you have a new, innovative (if not revolutionary) piece of technology, you’d want something new to market it. For example, the latest marketing stunt for an Audi hybrid has billboards made entirely of water vapor.
However, do similar tactics automatically translate into more B2B leads for your company? That might depend entirely how your new product actually jives with your new marketing concept.
Much like people, brands are sometimes praised for being all hip and new or discarded for being obsolete and outdated.
However, how much of it has really anything to do with the actual age of your business? Your B2B lead generation strategy could actually discover the real deciding factor of how ‘old’ your brand looks.
It’s normal for you to make sure that there are no nasty surprises waiting for your sales reps whenever they decide to pursue some of your B2B leads. But on the other hand, there will always be a cap to how much you can assure them.
It’s like when you give somebody a superhuman mutagen saying there’s only 5% chance of something going completely wrong. Putting that 95% instead might sound impressive but the truth there’s really no absolute guarantee that it won’t create the next supervillain.
You might not know this but there’s an increasingly large number of wandering workers in the world today. No, these aren’t the lazy hobos asking for a quick buck just from washing a window. These are fully-fledged professionals who simply lack full-fledged loyalty to a single employee.
And during times when traditional corporations are crumbling hierarchies, it won’t be long until you find yourself looking for sales leads from these wanderers.
