The jury's back - 68% of B2B marketers agree that live events generate the most leads. (MarketingCharts) At Socio, we believe monetizing lead retrieval should be as easy as deploying it. After purchasing event licenses for a flat fee, organizers can earn additional revenue when redistributing those licenses to sponsors and exhibitors.

Exhibitor benefits

Check out the 5 main benefits to highlight when promoting Lead Retrieval to exhibitors. There's even more collateral at the bottom to assist you in promoting Lead Retrieval to Exhibitors! 👇

1. No hardware

Use a phone or tablet to quickly scan leads, without any extra hardware to rent. The powerful Lead Retrieval by Socio app is iOS and Android compatible and capable of scanning the QR code on an attendee’s printed or digital badge. If attendees don’t have a badge, use the app to snap a picture of their business card!  

2. Collaborative

After each interaction, leave notes on the attendee’s lead profile for other team members to see and add to. Instead of having disjointed conversations, staff can pick up where their teammates left off and nurture leads right away.

3. User-friendly 

Badge scanned, lead captured - it's that simple. Once a badge is scanned, the Lead Retrieval App flows right into quality scoring, making it incredibly easy to rate and write notes. 

Bonus! Booth admins can also add as many people to their team as they want - no extra licenses required.

4. Data-enriched

All information in the attendee's app profile is instantly available in their lead profile, including title and company, profile summary, social media handles, and more. You can also easily add or edit more info that you receive from talking to the lead.

5. Reporting

As you're scanning, the data dashboard shows exactly how you and your team are performing in real time, and you can share your metrics in real time too! Key metrics such as total scans and average lead quality are summarized for fast decision-making. Plus, you can instantly export leads to a CRM-friendly spreadsheet and show ROI.

Pro tip! 😎 

  • This article is full of great ways to promote lead retrieval to new exhibitors, but don't forget the value of metrics to get exhibitors to sign up year after year! A quick email with, "I see you got 200 4-star leads last year - be sure to sign up ASAP", or "I know that you are competing with company X, they were able to collect 450 leads with an average of 3.5 stars at our event last year", goes a long way!
