The information you gather from visitors is crucial for your sales team to do their job after the show. While most savvy business owners don’t question the importance of data collection, many fail to give this important element the attention and consideration that it requires to ensure it’s done properly.
Whilst using pen and paper notes to collect vital lead information is perfectly okay, there are always more hi-tech options available to you. When putting together your plan for gathering visitor data and information, consider streamlining your efforts and include:
- Tablets and iPads
- Touch Screens
- Smart Phone Apps

Whatever method of data collection you chose, follow up is crucial. In order to try maximise the benefits of your collected data, it’s crucial to follow up on every lead gathered.
