Networking and lead gen at events can be a real headache for sales and marketing teams. Traditional business cards have been the norm forever, but gathering and organizing contact info often turns into a messy, time-consuming task. Manually entering contacts into CRM systems is slow and error-prone, which means important data can get lost or mixed up. 

This delay in data entry leads to missed follow-up opportunities and weakens your lead nurturing efforts.

To stay ahead, you need a solution that captures leads quickly and accurately while seamlessly integrating with your CRM (like HubSpot of course!).

Use Digital Business Cards + HubSpot as Part of Your Bigger Event Strategy

If you’re just getting started with digital business cards, we’d recommend hiring an expert to help not only setup the platform but also integrate properly with the right pre and post communication to make the most of these new connections.  

After all, the biggest 2 threats for most events is not that they don’t get leads, its this:

  1. They don’t follow up quickly
  2. They don’t get information relevant to them that’s specific to the event or interaction

As you can tell, that’s more of a strategic challenge, but one that can be paired with the right lead gen capture strategy at the event, plus the digital business cards + HubSpot nurturing process.

Whether you want a hand maximizing this Popl-HubSpot integration for your next event, conference, or trade show, or you just need a little extra help optimizing HubSpot for your organization, we’re here to make sure you get the most out of the platform.
