My question is what to do with our existing leads database when launching new campaigns. There is an internal debate on this with a differing opinion from various team members. For me, the purpose of creating the whitepaper is new lead generation so I would still send an email to existing leads (some are actually customers in our leads database...don't ask, the list is mess) but I want to send them a link to an un-gated version. I only want to gate it for new leads. It seems odd to me that we would force people to put in their information to access the whitepaper when we already have their info on file.
Any thoughts on this? Do you think that if we ask people we have on file to fill in their information again to see the paper that it may have value for us, like showing an increased interest so we could categorize them as having greater potential?
Thanks for your input!
