How to make Twitter sell

Remarkably savvy social sellers like Avaya are converting individual tweets into $250,000 in sales. The company realises that the answer to selling with Twitter is rooted in discovering conversations that are worth having.

Is online lead generation right for your brand?

An increasing number of brands are starting to take Online Lead Generation (OLG) seriously and making it a central part of their online customer acquisition strategy and it’s not hard to see why.

For many brands it is pretty simple but before you decide to allocate thousands of pounds to a lead gen campaign it pays to take a step back and ask yourself a few questions to work out whether OLG is right for your brand.
