It's an age-old question that direct advertisers and others grapple with: "Is it better to buy a lead management solution or build one myself"? This question becomes more complex as you consider all your current and future channels—calls, web leads, clicks, emails, and more. It's easy to become lost in a sea of sales pitches and promises as you make your decision.
But you don't need to lose your way to find the right solution!

With this webinar, you'll have the opportunity to hear from experts who know both sides of the "buy or build" debate. Delve into how different businesses face this question and the benefits and challenges they weigh of building their own proprietary lead system. You'll also understand why others decide to shop the market for the right software solution—and get real-world examples across different verticals.

Hosting this panel is Nasser Aftab and Tiara Gazarian of Phonexa, a SaaS platform for managing leads, calls, clicks, and emails. Their featured guest is Brett Kaufman, COO of WorkBook6, a business development resource for direct response brands who often need help making the decision between “build or buy.” In his role, Brett takes on this topic every day while advising WorkBook6 partners in their brand strategy, giving him unique insight into this exact debate.

Get answers to the following questions:
  • What motivates a business to build their own lead system?
  • What are the pros and cons of taking a "build it" approach?
  • Why do others decide to utilize existing software solutions?
