PointClear Seminar to Help Bay Area Companies Improve Lead Generation Strategies

San Jose-Based CenterBeam Will Reveal How PointClear Programs Are Delivering on Average 50 Percent of New Business Per Quarter

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - October 9, 2007) - Sales and marketing strategies firm, PointClear, LLC, will deliver a Bay Area seminar designed to help B2B companies improve their lead generation and business development practices, resulting in greater sales. The free wine and cheese event will be held October 18 from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the San Jose offices of PointClear client CenterBeam, a leading provider of outsourced IT services.

Titled, "Leads, Appointments and Granfalloons," the seminar will be presented by PointClear President Dan McDade and will reveal how B2B organizations can increase lead quality from direct marketing campaigns. Attendees will also learn how to avoid many of the pitfalls that lead to less-than-expected sales revenues.

"In most companies today, there is a gap between sales and marketing that must be realigned in order to grow revenue effectively," said McDade. "Seminar attendees will discover how to close this gap and get their sales and marketing departments working together to identify and cultivate the top prospects."

The seminar will showcase PointClear's lead qualification and opportunity management programs conducted for CenterBeam. The programs are producing on average 50 percent of CenterBeam's new business per quarter.

"PointClear has played a key role in accelerating our business growth," confirmed Karen Hayward, executive vice president and chief marketing officer for CenterBeam.
