Streamline lead generation efforts by re-thinking your strategy
With increasingly more marketing automation available, there are still some basic methods that will improve the lead generation process for B2B marketers, according to a recent study.
The notion of getting more value or qualified leads for less, whether it be in print advertising, email lists or pay-per-click (PPC) ads is a goal that can be achieved by creating a buyer persona. When marketers focus on a smaller group of potential customers through targeted personas, it saves cost. Being mindful of whom that buyer persona is remains key.
Secondly, consider the costs of your lead generation campaign. There is no doubt that materially, social media and email marketing are less expensive than traditional marketing and increasingly have a high return on investment. In a recent study by Voltier Digital, 41 per cent of B2B companies have acquired a new customer through Facebook, while 57 per cent have acquired a new client through the company blog. And, 47 per cent have acquired a new client through Twitter.
A third suggestion is to optimize the company’s website images. The correlation between a faster load time and increased conversion is clear. Time is of the essence and the correct sizing and faster loading means that your image sizes won’t be too big for your landing pages.
