So, you’ve likely heard at some point the terms “demand generation” and “lead generation.” In fact, you’ve probably used them to describe some part of your marketing strategy – maybe even interchangeably. The question is: are you using them correctly, and what are their actual definitions?

It’s true – there is a difference between demand generation and lead generation, and both should be important parts of your marketing strategy. During Marketing Mojo’s first webinar of 2014, Demand Generation for Lead Generation Success, Janet Driscoll Miller will be discussing this very topic so you can be better educated about these two distinct terms and their respective tactics.
