In the insightful article "From Handshakes to Algorithms: Navigating Post-Pandemic Lead Generation with AI" I explore the dramatic shift in lead generation tactics due to the pandemic, particularly in the tech sector. Having led marketing efforts at companies like SonicWall, Dell Software, and Kemp Technologies, I recount the transition from traditional in-person strategies to digital-first approaches, underlining the significant role AI has played in this evolution.
Pre-pandemic methods focused on content syndication, events, and telemarketing, emphasizing direct interactions. With Covid-19's disruption, we shifted to virtual events and social media engagement to maintain connections and lead flow. AI has revolutionized our processes, providing tools for predictive analysis, instant customer engagement via chatbots, and personalized content creation. The future points toward a hybrid model of virtual and physical lead generation strategies, with a strong emphasis on AI integration, content quality, ethical data use, and adaptability to continuous change.
