Grow Your Marketing Database
Marketing databases decay rapidly because of how often people change jobs or titles, companies go out of business, or mergers occur. In fact, up to 25% of most B2B database contacts contain critical errors and 62% of organizations rely on marketing and prospect data that’s up to 40% inaccurate (source: Data Decay: Is Your Database Full of Rotten Apples?

As a B2B sales person, you know how difficult cold calling can be. Everyone calls you a telemarketer. They think you’re trying to trap them in a contract, right? Wrong! The truth is if you’re calling the right people with a message that’s relevant to them they’ll see value in what you offer and will even be glad that you called.
Salespeople are in a tough spot. They have to inform leads about their products and services, how they will benefit from them, and get them to sign the check. They only get a few minutes to hit each of these points. No matter what you’re selling, your sales pitch can make or break a deal. Here are a few tips to get the conversation started on the right foot:
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?
Great white sharks are probably the most recognizable underwater predators because they’ve honed their skills over thousands of years. They’ve spent that time growing and evolving to get better at targeting their food sources. We’re going to teach you how you can target prospects like a great white shark.
Companies need revenue to survive, which means that sales and marketing teams need to excel at targeting the right prospects to feed the bottom line with monetary “food”. Sales and marketing departments need to hone their skills and evolve their selling techniques to avoid sleeping with the fishes!
As a marketer, targeted landing pages with lead generation forms are your best friend. They let you capture information on people who are interested in your products and services – the people that are your most likely buyers.
So, how do you design a targeted landing page and a form that your prospects will fill out so you can move them further into your sales funnel?
