In an earlier blog, we discussed how Marketing Qualified Meetings (MQMs) are the latest Marketing currency. They are a better metric that can help convert your interested prospects to opportunities. Just as one would argue that Inbound leads are the best type of leads you can generate, we can also say that Inbound meetings are the best type of meetings you can generate. Here’s why.
Exhibitors wish to schedule a lot of meetings with qualified external event (both in-person or virtual) attendees. However, expecting your prospects/customers to contact your sales team to book meetings might be too optimistic. Even event managers may not know which of the prospects and customers might be interested in meeting an expert or executive in your company at the event.
The Jifflenow Inbound Meeting Request capability makes it easy to run pre-event digital campaigns to promote inbound meeting requests from customers and prospects.
Attendee experience and engagement is one of the most crucial elements for companies present at virtual events and Inbound Meeting Request is a great way to enable customers and prospects to directly request meetings with experts and executives in the most seamless manner.
Empower Your Virtual Event Attendees to Request Meetings
Put the power to book meetings in the hands of your customers and prospects. The inbound meeting request form provides a flexible way to book meetings. The form provides an easy to capture meeting context, requested time slots, support for time zones, and video conferencing links to process the meeting request.
Embedded Inbound Meeting Request as an iFrame
Inbound Meeting Request can also be deployed as an iFrame (HTML form) embedded inside any web page or virtual event page. With this capability, requesters can submit the meeting request without leaving the online event, webinar, or browsing web pages. Marketing teams can embed individual Inbound Meeting Request for each engagement type within an event or program.
Top Use Cases for leveraging Inbound Meeting Requests :
Virtual Events: Option to provide URL links or embed the Inbound Meeting Request as an iFrame within the Virtual Event experience page. The meeting requests can be customized for different meeting types such as. ‘Ask for a Demo’, ‘Meet an Expert’ or ‘Sign up for a session’.
