Well-run social media accounts can boost your lead generation. This is a premise our guest writer for today argues. And rightly so, Twitter positions well in Google, so prospects who google your brand stumble on your Twitter account too, as I’ve written before. Then, it’s powerful as a prospect warm-up method. But how to boost your lead generation organically?
It’s always a great pleasure for us to talk to our customers and hear how Woodpecker helps them solve their pain points and grow their businesses. This time I’ve talked to Dora Fredenburg from ProSales Connection, who is one of our loyal customers. She shared how they use Woodpecker to make their cold email outreach as easy as possible and generate more leads, both for them and their clients.
This blog post is for you, dear recruiters, hope that you will find it helpful in organizing and keeping track of your email outreach to individual job seekers and employers in need of a new hire.
When I look at our Google Analytics data at Woodpecker, I can see that the vast majority of our website visitors that become leads come from organic or paid search. And I believe that it’s similar in the case of your SaaS too. The internet users run a query in Google and your website comes up among other results. That’s why I believe your website can be one of the surest lead generation tools at your disposal. Let’s learn how to do it.
A lot has been said about the importance of face-to-face communication when trying to connect with business partners or potential customers. That’s why we attend various conferences, meet-ups, and networking events. It’s all in the name of forging strong relationships that will push our businesses forward. Networking works perfectly for that, I must admit.
Whereas a well-crafted subject is key for boosting our opening rates, the CTA (call to action) is the key to boosting the reply rates. That’s the sentence, or a question, the addressee reads at the end of our message. That’s the part that persuade them to undertake some action – send us a reply, click the provided link, sign up for a trial. If you want to know how to write effective CTAs, keep reading.
Lately, I’ve spent some time observing new trends in sales and marketing. I couldn’t help but be drawn to “conversational marketing”, a novel idea introduced by Drift, a platform that offers all-round solutions for staying in touch with customers and leads.
The term itself seemed really interesting to me. After all, cold emailing is a form of starting a conversation, so if something like “conversational marketing” gets blog coverage, it’s even better for cold emailing and similar technology that enables brands to stay in touch with their leads.
So I popped into a chat with Mark Kilens from Drift who’s worked extremely hard on Drift’s Conversational Framework. I also reached out to lead generation experts and asked them to say a few words about the rise of chatbots and conversational marketing.
Let’s see what they had to say about it.
At the end of last year, our outbound sales team hosted a webinar made for Quora users interested in lead generation. It was their first webinar, therefore, the outbound team wanted the audience to be relatively small. We thought you might be interested in watching the webinar and learning more about our approach to list building. So today, we’re publishing the webinar, and at the same time, officially launching Woodpecker YouTube channel.
