Highest recorded response rate
Highest recorded ROI from a Contact Marketing campaign
New baseline for response
Contact Marketing is remarkable for many reasons. Even though per-contact costs can be the highest of any form of marketing, the fact that it is concentrated on a handful of contacts who can change the scale of your career or business also makes it one of the most affordable forms of marketing. With response rates climbing as high as 100% and ROI in the tens, even hundreds of thousands of percent, it’s easy to see why Contact Marketing can easily produce increased market share, greater profitability, and explosive growth. And with the new model introduced in Get the Meeting!, Contact Marketers can set a new baseline for response – at 100%.

The following two days are devoted to auditing your current contact process, then creating several test campaigns you and your team will be able to create and run in-house. Sessions are private or semi-private groups.
