Why Now is the Time to Reignite Your Lead Generation Efforts

There are few things as important to a business than lead generation. After all, making sure that there are always new customers in the pipeline is the only way to ensure that your business remains secure and positioned for growth.

Most businesses, however, go through periods when lead generation efforts lag behind. While there are many reasons this can happen, what is most important is that you recognize this problem and work toward reigniting your lead generation efforts. Not sure how to do that? Here are some tried and true ways to make sure your lead generation gets back on track:

  1. Conduct a website audit. Your website is one of your most important sales tools. Periodic audits allow you to improve on things that need improving. This includes identifying any potential problems that have come up like broken links, issues with content, speed and performance issues, and more.
  2. Perform keyword research. SEO is always evolving so it is critical that you keep up with the most current keywords. By doing so you will be sure that your website content is optimized for SEO.
  3. Keep an eye on your competitors. If you want to be an expert in your industry, you need to know how to differentiate your business from the competition. And if you don’t know what your competition is doing that isn’t possible. Track your competitor’s keywords, social media strategies and messaging to find out how you can position yourself ahead of them.
  4. Set goals. Lead generation and marketing goals should center around things like increasing revenue, boosting sales, moving into new territories and identifying new target audiences. Without clearly defined goals it becomes easy to flounder. Further, measurable goals allow you to better track your performance.
  5. Define your promotions strategy. When it comes to lead generation, putting all of your eggs in one basket is never a good idea. Instead, mix things up. Consider incorporating two or three marketing tactics together so they can build on each other. For example, an email marketing campaign that directs people to your website can be followed up with a phone call.

Lead generation is often put on the back burner, especially when business is good. However, unless you continue to work on securing new customers, you may find yourself scrambling when business slows.
