Marketers and sales people have depended on business cards for too long! You collect piles of contacts from trade shows, conferences, and other business events, which you have to manually input into a CRM. You keep the cards in heaping piles in case you need to refer back to them, but would you even be able to find the one you’re looking for?

Simple Steps to Empower Your Sales Team

The Usual Method

Sales force compensation is the largest marketing investment for most B2B companies. In fact, U.S. companies spend over $800 billion on it each year. Traditionally, sales teams have been incentivized a bit differently than the rest of employees. They are on the front lines talking to customers, battling to bring in revenue for your company. Their efforts have been quantified based on the revenue they bring in. We often think of sales people as a different breed of employees: competitive, driven, and motivated by money. Continue reading

alignment

Sales and marketing are inherently connected. The sales team relies on content and lead generation from marketing and the marketing team needs sales people to carry out marketing strategies. They both share the same overall goal: to increase revenue for the company. The challenge is to align the sales and marketing departments so that they can efficiently work towards that goal.

The Importance of B2B Lead Nurturing

Email this to someoneShare on Google+Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on RedditShare on TumblrDigg thisPin on Pinterest
 

What is Lead Nurturing?

Most leads aren’t sales-ready when you first contact them. Lead nurturing is a process through which you can maintain a relationship with those leads, track them, and develop them into sales-ready leads rather than letting them go cold.

Why Nurture Leads?

73 % of sales leads are not sales-ready when they enter the top of the funnel but 65% of B2B marketers have not established lead nurturing campaigns. This leaves a lot of room for those leads to go cold over time. These leads aren’t ready to purchase just yet. But don’t forget that there’s a huge opportunity to create a relationship with potential future customers. Remember, they became a lead for a reason and saw inherent value in something you offered. Creating and nurturing long lasting relationships with these leads can help establish trust and loyalty for your organization. Additionally, you can ensure that these contacts are clean and up-to-date by engaging with them as part of a B2B nurture campaign.
