BJTonline.com paged news

BJTonline.com is the online home to the slick print magazine, as such advertisers are provided for plenty of views as well by paging the news articles after every 300 words. For longer articles, this might mean 7-times more ad views than normal.

BPMinstitute.org White Papers login or visitor registration

BPMinstitute.org has been established in response to the demand for education and peer exchange on all aspects surrounding business process computing. As the website content provided is high-quality and at times sponsor-backed, there’s a strong need to prevent illegitimate access. To overcome this there’s membership access restrictions in place that’s also supplemented with the ability for website visitors to gain temporary access to a single white paper.

BPMinstitute.org White Papers lead generator

BPMinstitute.org has really pushed what can be done with tt_news in many avenues in regards to lead generation. Whenever downloadable content is available in a login restricted manner, downloading of the media file can trigger a lead notification event directly to the content sponsor. Additionally, the lead information can even be made available for sponsors to download themselves.

BPMinstitute.org Round Table event registration

These round tables website members and even visitors to register for the round table event.

Lastly, the system automatically handled registration thank you, reminders, access login and post show emails leaving BPMinstitute free to concentrate on content generation.
