In his article, “Lead Generation: What Really Works?,” published in the Keller Center Research Report this month, Pullig reported that strength of market and lead conversion strategy have a complex nonlinear relationship.
Pullig’s study analyzed lead generation efforts as being either “seek” or “attract” strategies. A seek orientation employs tactics such as phone calls, networking and referrals. An attract, or marketing, strategy, employs tactics such as advertising, direct mail and then waiting for the phone to ring.
“We found that the best lead generation approach did depend significantly on the type of market the realtor was in, with a predominantly seek orientation being more productive in converting leads into appointments and transactions when the market conditions are not as favorable,” Pullig said of the study.
The research showed that a balance of 60% seek-oriented activities and 40% attract-oriented activities delivered the highest lead generation conversion rates in a tough market.
“When the market is tough you need to be more aggressive and creative with your lead generation activities. You should do some things that are non-traditional and not rely so much on advertising and direct mail. In a tough market, focus more on building networks, acquiring referrals, and other ways that you can generate leads by proactive means.”
The research also showed that in a stable market, a balance of 50% seek- and 50% attract-oriented activities created the highest lead conversion level, while in a healthy market 40% seek- and 60% attract-oriented activities were most productive.

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.
Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...
In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
