Marketing and sales drives company performance. To develop opportunities needed to succeed, marketing must address many challenges, including:
- prospect awareness and preference
- lost sales' productivity due to poor quality leads
- poor visibility into the prospect’s buying cycle
- lack of campaign performance metrics
- poor campaign and marketing ROI
- shrinking budgets; the need to do more with less
Improve marketing performance with lead nurturing
Lead nurturing is the process of using prospect preferences, behavior and profiling to deliver highly relevant, timely information that keeps them engaged. GrowthPoint‘s lead nurturing programs use advanced database segmentation, prospect scoring, personalized content and marketing automation to help companies:
- foster awareness and preference for products and services, building a solid foundation for future sales success
- improve the ability to measure campaign performance, helping companies drive a greater return on their marketing investments
- understand the prospect's buying cycle and deepen the relationship with potential buyers
- strengthen competitiveness and position sales to win the opportunity
- respond to changing market conditions and the need to do more with less
The prospect buying cycle
Nurturing builds relationships with prospects in the critical early stages of the buying cycle. This leaves sales free to focus on closing opportunities.
Build awareness and improve competitiveness
Before sales can be made, marketers need to build awareness for a company’s products and services. This is more than just staying in front of customers with a constant stream of messages, hoping that something will stick. GrowthPoint lead nurturing helps marketers stay in front of prospects with relevant, timely information that helps them articulate their challenges so they can build the business case for a solution.
By ensuring only sales-ready opportunities reach the sales team, lead nurturing helps sales people be more productive. GrowthPoint customers leveraging lead nurturing consistently find sales people spending 50-80% less time qualifying leads, leaving them more time in front of prospects who are ready to buy. And sales teams face less competition as lead nurturing helps prevent competitors from getting a foothold in a long sales cycle.
