It’s simple really…
Whether you run a global business or you are a marketing strategist, for any business that’s focusing on content marketing and lead generation, it’s important to focus on the quality of your leads over the quantity.
In outlining marketing objectives, the top 5 areas include:
Improving lead nurturing and questions:
This can be achieved through outlining the objectives and questions ahead of time to ensure appropriate strategies are in place.
Also use lead questions that can help to give your sales team the follow-up information they need.
Improving lead quality through scoring:
Using a point system can help to prioritize data from form questions and thereby give your sales team a better approach to streamline the leads that should be followed up on first.
As you use this funnel approach, you can separate leads into targeted leads.
This can easily be executed through an automated email triggered with your form.
When you are putting together keep in mind that the person receiving this email has already showed some interest.
Keep the content engaging but forward and remove all fluff and filler from the automated email and focus your content on creating a personal emotion and creating action to score the truth in their interest.
Improving marketing efforts:
Ways that this can be achieved include through lead generation from landing pages. By streamlining the best website and email formats to use, this can help with effective marketing strategies.
As content marketing and email marketing are very effective tools to use, they can also help to streamline how leads are reached as long as marketers are able to optimize their demand generation.
Increasing sales revenue:
By focusing on the cost for each lead, as well as the overall return on investment (ROI), this can help a company to target their marketing efforts in a cost efficient manner.
While some may think having a few quality leads is not enough when you can have large quantities, keep in mind, paying for leads can affect your budget, it costs more in marketing, and it may waste time.
Improving prospects from leads and nurturing them:
Another great way to ensure time is used more effectively is to get your quality leads through generating better prospects and nurturing them. This can be done through automation to cut task time as sales teams should have their focus on closing deals.
Nurturing can come through the funnel approach where leads that don’t meet specific criteria are still looked at as potential sales. With the right education, they may one day lead to future sales.
By focusing on lead generation and looking for ways to separate leads that are sales ready based on form questions, this can help sales teams to better focus on them. It will also help to sort out sales that are ready now, versus those that need nurturing.
To get the best return on investment, pursue quality leads and treat them all as potential sales.
