IndustryNewsletters (IN), a division of HomeActions LLC, has announced a strategic partnership with Sales Generation Services (SGS), a lead-generation firm that works specifically with professional services firms. SGS will work with IndustryNewsletters and its clients to supercharge IN’s already powerful lead-generation capabilities. IN provides its clients with sophisticated and customizable e-newsletters designed to reach out to both prospective and current clients. A key feature of the newsletters is a series of “trigger” articles, which alert the user when a prospect or client has shown interest in a particular service a firm provides. Next-Level Lead Generation SGS will take it to the next level by following up on these trigger article leads on behalf of the firms. Saving these firms from the bother of following up on these hot leads, the experienced staff at SGS becomes part of a firm’s team and will contact these leads themselves, working to turn interested prospects into long-term firm clients. SGS has also become an IN client and will be using IN newsletters to reach its own accounting firm clients and prospects. “It’s a perfect match,” said Barry Friedman, CPA, founder and CEO of IndustryNewsletters. “The trigger articles in IndustryNewsletters are designed to capture the key leads for our accounting, payroll and legal firm clients, and SGS has the skills and training to help these firms not only connect with these prospects but to set qualified meetings.” About Sales Generation Services Sales Generation Services (SGS) is a lead-generation firm that works specifically with professional services firms.
