Are you heading to Dreamforce?
It is one of NewVoiceMedia's biggest annual events. In fact, we always seem to grow our Dreamforce presence year over year – bigger parties, bigger sponsorship and bigger customer showcases. And this year promises to be our biggest Dreamforce yet.
We’ve kicked off our Dreamforce 2016 prep with a Gold Sponsorship, and we've officially launched our microsite, which details our party, booth information and meeting details. Check it out for information on the latest and greatest Dreamforce updates. Also, follow-us on Twitter, join our conversations with #GetCloser and keep an eye out for our continuing blogs series.
This year we’re highlighting the “Better Way to Get Close to Your Customers.”
It’s an issue that impacts both sales and service professionals; how do you create stronger relationships with customers without appearing invasive, desperate, or just plain creepy.
Throughout our campaign, we satirically depict the sometimes awkward, sometimes inappropriate way sales and service professionals historically contact customers – at the wrong time, in the wrong place, and within the wrong context. At Dreamforce, NVM will reveal how a strong communications platform can provide a better way for you to get close to your customers.
