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.

The world's highest gain high power laser amplifier - by many orders of magnitude - has been developed in research led at the University of Strathclyde.
The researchers demonstrated the feasibility of using plasma to amplify short laser pulses of picojoule-level energy up to 100 millijoules, which is a 'gain'...
Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.
Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....
Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.
We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...
Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.
Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
