Lead nurturing keeps the door open to being able to effectively close deals. While getting high-quality leads is important for any sales organization, it’s just the first step in winning new and repeat business.
The following is an overview of some of the most helpful tips to improve your lead nurturing process:
1. Acquire the Right Leads
The only way to successfully nurture a lead is to acquire the right one in the beginning. The same principle applies to personal relationships; it is much easier to build close relationships with someone whose values, interests, and personality align with your own. To acquire the right leads, build precise buyer personas for your solutions with thorough profile descriptions. Then, develop an ideal strategy for approaching them. The Data Axle Genie solution is aimed to help you source quality leads and seamlessly communicate.
2. Develop Professional and Organized Email Campaigns
Once you’ve identified your best leads, develop email campaigns to present compelling messages in the right sequence. Data Axle Genie offers professional campaign design and hundreds of email templates. Emails are an effective and affordable way to nurture leads through the consideration stage of their journey as they move toward a decision.
3. Build a Thorough Content Strategy
Go beyond emails and include traditional and digital media, along with print mailers in your content strategy. Online content—such as blogs, website landing pages, and social media—are crucial to a thorough strategy.
As with emails, organize your content to correspond with your buyer’s journey stage as they move from awareness to consideration to decision.
4. Use Multiple Channels
As noted, it is beneficial to incorporate multiple communication channels into your nurturing strategy. A well-rounded, multi-channel marketing strategy creates synergy. Strong messages work together to help guide a decision-maker through the process. Communication across channels helps reinforce the content and information received previously by your prospects.
5. Use Innovative Tools to Communicate Efficiently
Look for innovative tools that help you communicate more efficiently. The Data Axle Genie Lead Manager™, for instance, allows you to provide each of your team members with innovative lead management tools. They get access to all of the rich profiles for your contacts. You can also share notes and information across the team. Informed reps make more productive calls to prospects and better understand the circumstances and motives driving leads to act.
