SAGE ShowLink

Improve Your Tradeshow Follow-Up

Nearly 80 percent of leads generated on the tradeshow floor go unfulfilled. By using SAGE ShowLink, the lead retrieval service designed specifically for the promotional products industry, you’ll improve the ease and accuracy of your follow-up processes, thus increasing your return on investment at events.

SAGE ShowLink is an app available for iOS and Android devices. Using either your device’s internal camera or an external scanner purchased from SAGE, ShowLink captures all of the information encoded in the badge barcodes. The custom software application gives you the ability to customize lead information by recording details about your conversation, such as what products the lead is interested in, when to follow up with them, and more. You can then transmit the information back to your office for immediate processing.

Best of all, SAGE ShowLink pays for itself after just one show in most cases!

“We absolutely love SAGE ShowLink and it’s very easy to use. We particularly like the customizable features so that with just one tap we could send our customers catalogs, a sample of a specific item, or add to our blast recipient list. It is also easy to edit or add notes. Final export of leads is great and easy to use. Plus, the information is clear. I also loved that I could look at my leads instantly – literally export the report every five minutes if I wanted to. This enabled us to process show samples from the actual show! The whole sales team at the show used it and learned the ins and outs quickly and easily.”

Dena Rothstein
Marketing Director

“We were beyond thrilled with ShowLink. We have been waiting for this technology and found ShowLink incredibly easy to set up prior to and use at tradeshows. Our staff back at the office received our leads and follow-up details in real time and were able to respond efficiently. It was easy to drop special notes in for those A+ leads to provide critical time-sensitive responses.”

“I want to thank you for a very functional, helpful and economical lead retrieval system for tradeshows. Our ability to capture data efficiently on the show floor, add meaningful notes, preload specific inquiries, and respond timely to customers and prospects is much improved. We are able to send out all catalog and sample requests within two days of major tradeshows such as The PPAI Expo. The ease with which we can generate lists and labels, research specific follow-up notes, and review overall inquiries allows us to manage our post-show efforts effectiviely and professionally.”
