Stop Wasting Time and Money! Get Truly Qualified B2B Leads

Stop Wasting Time and Money! Get Truly Qualified B2B Leads
Do you sometimes feel like your lead generation efforts go around in circles? You stumble upon a warm lead (which gets you rather excited), then you allot considerable attention on that lead over other leads (which is not really a good idea), and after a definitive phone call or a face-to-face appointment you find out that the lead is not anywhere near your lead criteria, which brings you back to square one (you had it coming). Now obviously, that could’ve been avoided if you had a solid lead qualification process in your system. What you’re missing Without a clear path for warm leads to ultimately become qualified leads, you’re not only wasting valuable time and resources, but you’re also blowing a lot of opportunities by not paying attention to those leads which could have been more productive. What’s worse is that sometimes, leads end up prematurely disqualified just because the lead generation personnel failed to nurture a prospect. What you need to do

The Quintessential Guide to Building Trust for Better Business Effectiveness in Malaysia You can’t expect people to buy your product or service when they have second thoughts about engaging you the first time around. There are some companies that try to shorten the buying cycle with the expectation of getting as many closed sales as they want. But the truth is, even if you are able to generate high numbers of business leads within a single period, there is a small chance these leads will end up buying.

Take time to read some of them and you’ll be winning sales like you’re winning in Tetris. Know your people.

Not The AdWords That You Used To Know In the Smart Insights article, Google AdWords changes in 2013 – reviewing the opportunities and potential problems, Tara West outlines the changes with Google AdWords that you need to be aware of and how you can make the most of the opportunities that go with them. These changes are: Device Targeting and Bid AdjustmentsFlexible Bid StrategiesNew and Enhanced ad ExtensionsLow Search Demand keywords are not eligibleCompetitive dataAdWords Display Advertising changes Device Targeting and Bid Adjustments The most controversial change from Enhanced Campaigns has delivered is the shake up with device targeting. The AdWords interface has now changed so dramatically that you can no longer target tablets separately because Google believe they perform in the same way as desktop devices (in my experience they don’t, but who am I to argue with the big G). All devices are now targeted within one campaign, and bid adjustments are used to increase or decrease bids for mobiles. Flexible Bid Strategies

Four Things That Demotivate Your Inside Sales Team As mentioned in my previous post, the most important assets that you need in your inside sales campaign would be the people tasked to do it. I mean, it would not be possible to generate B2B leads if there is no one manning the front liners, getting in touch with business prospects and trying to set an appointment between them and you. It is very important to know what you can do to motivate your lead generation team. But also equally important to know would be the factors that can kill morale. Avoid these, at all cost, and you will save yourself from the headaches that can pop up down the road. Using salary as the main motivator – okay, people want to earn something in their work, that is fact. There are plenty of other things that you should avoid doing, but you can be assured that these four are the main culprits.

The Reasons for a Collapsing Content Strategy Whatever you are selling deserves proper recognition. Demand generation strategies specifically serve to make your products and services visible to people you want to have as customers. Thus, you rely on effective content marketing strategy. In B2B lead generation, companies can never do without proper planning and distribution of content. What businesses need to do is to: 1). 2). 3). Clearly, marketers in the B2B industry can hardly resolve that last one and submitting to the adage of “Everybody makes mistakes” only intensifies the problem of poor web traffic and its disastrous offshoots. To prevent your content marketing and lead generation from collapsing, it is important to NOT do any of these: Becoming business-centric Narcissism poses itself as a natural psychological phenomenon of modern culture as evidenced by the epidemic popularity of “selfies” and “groufies.” Make content more interactive and engaging than ever!

Why Is Telecommuting Bad For Lead Generation? Right at the heels of Yahoo CEO’s Marissa Mayer’s announcement that there will be no more telecommunicating for its employees, there have been howls of disapproval from many quarters. They say that telecommunicating is an important part of their operations, and it should not be taken lightly. For those in the lead generation business, working outside the office is key to increased productivity in B2B leads. Still, there are reasons why telecommunicating can be a bad idea. Among these are: Less opportunities to collaborate – believe it or not, it can be fairly impossible to get new ideas from your colleagues when you just talk through a computer screen. So, what do you think?
