"Traditional lead generation is on its way out the door," Rajeev Kapur, CEO of 1105 Media and a keynote speaker at SIIA's upcoming Business Information & Media Summit (BIMS), Nov. 14-16 in Fort Lauderdale, told me recently. "Over the next couple years it's going to be challenged. If you continue to do lead gen the same way over time, you'll fall behind. The folks providing the leads—i.e. 1105—need to do a better job of providing leads.
"Our customer base is starting to change. Our customers, the people receiving leads, they have a challenge with thinning staffs so they want us to do more. [That means] providing more value in the leads. In the next 2-3 years or not sooner the traditional lead gen model is probably gone and replaced with something entirely different. That's why when I came aboard and talked to customers, we started to look at new ways to evolve and today we're working on a new technology platform to roll out for customers."
