Date of lead, Title, Name, Position, Company, Address, Phone numbers, E-mail, Web URL, Secretary Name. 4-2. Product Interest.

This information will later appear on a Promotion Effectiveness Report (part of you MIS) that will be used to assess the ROI of your promotional strategies to repeat winners and drop losers.
