According to most Chief Marketing Officers content is the future of marketing. Not only is it cheaper than traditional marketing but it also generates a higher amount of leads.
Sharing relevant social posts, videos, infographics and blog posts will build trust with your potential customers. Social Media content has the capability to start the conversation between a business and it’s customers.
Content from your sales and marketing campaigns draws customers in. Even if you don’t have an in house marketing team it can be favourable to get some assistance from Digital Marketing Professionals.
With a call-to-action within your content you will gain your potential customer’s details, which you will be able to utilise for your marketing campaigns.
4. Rejuvenate Customer Data
Spend time cleaning up and segmenting your email marketing list before you execute any new campaigns. This will remove any inactive email addresses as well as those who haven’t opened your emails.
It is important to segment your list by categories such as interests, purchase history and frequency of purchases. This makes tailoring campaigns a more seamless process. Segmented lists receive a higher open rate and will result in more customers visiting your website.
Retaining clear and concise customer data will allow your business to provide quality follow ups to your customers.
5. Valuable Follow Ups
Make sure you have a plan in place that details how your business follows up on leads. From a quote request to thanking a prospect for making a purchase.
Following up with your customers in an important part of building relationships. It is imperative to follow up whilst your business is still fresh in your customers minds.
Timing is a key factor when it comes to follow ups. For example if a customer has only just made a purchase they probably won’t be ready to make another purchase straight away. Therefore the next email they receive should be a nurturing one.
These strategies will take time to refine but once you have them running smoothly they generate plenty of leads for your business.
