WILMINGTON, Mass. - interlinkONE, Inc. is excited to announce that marketing industry veterans John Foley Jr. and Karen DeWolfe will be leading a highly-interactive session at the MarketingProfs’ B2B Marketing Forum in Boston on Thursday, Oct. 20, 2016, from 2-3 p.m.
Foley and DeWolfe will present Using Social Media to Generate Actual Sales, Not Just High-Fives. In their session, the pair will discuss how to target, identify and engage prospective customers across various social media platforms, the importance having a strategic plan, and why using the right social media software is key to finding success in social media generated sales. To provide attendees with a true understanding of why social media marketing and prospecting is valuable, Foley and DeWolfe will use real-world cases that prove significant return on investment is attainable.
Using Social Media to Generate Actual Sales, Not Just High-Fives is a “teach me how session” which makes this presentation unique. Instead of leading an hour-long speaking presentation, attendees will have the opportunity to exercise methods that Foley and DeWolfe discuss in real-time—participants are encouraged to bring a mobile device. Complementing the hands-on aspect of the session, attendees will also receive a thought-provoking workbook to help them reflect on their current social strategy or lack thereof and how to get started with or enhance social selling techniques.
Commenting on the session, DeWolfe said, “It’s an honor for us to present at B2B Marketing Forum. John and I enjoy leading really engaging presentations so we’re excited to participate in a ‘teach me how session’ because participants will actually get to practice what we’re discussing in real-time. Presenting in this format will help attendees better understand the value of social media generated sales, and role as a sales tool.”
In addition to their presentation, Foley and DeWolfe will be available at the B2B Office Hours, where attendees will have the opportunity to chat with the pair and ask questions to get their expert insight. The two will be participating in office hours on Thursday, Oct. 20 at 3:15 p.m. and Friday, Oct. 21 at 10:15 a.m. at the Birch Bar in the Westin Lobby.
