Prospecting is another technique that often provides the link between inbound marketing and sales activities. When leads have been nurtured through to the bottom of the funnel, your sales reps can follow up on them with prospecting activities. Prospecting generally involves targeted communications to individuals — like emails, LinkedIn messages, and phone calls or voicemails — as opposed to content meant to draw an audience. Another way to think about it is that prospecting is a one-to-one conversation, while marketing is one-to-many.
1. Call them back as quickly as possible. If you get their voicemail, leave a voicemail saying, “Hey, this is ____, you visited my website at ____ and I am just calling you to let you know there is a real person behind the website. If I can help you in any way, call me back at ______.” If you want to be more vague, and raise curiosity and probably the amount of calls you get back, you can leave this one, “Hey, this is ______, I was referred to you, you can reach me at _______”.
Your website is where the magic happens. This is the place where your audience needs to convert. Whether it is encouraging prospective buyers to sign up for your newsletter or fill out a form for a demo, the key is to optimize your website for converting browsers into actual leads. Pay attention to forms, Calls-to-Action (CTA), layout, design, and content.
Thanks for providing me with a VERY solid list of leads each month. I just received my third list and have already booked 3 listings, over $2,000,000 in business. I also have another commitment for $900,000k waiting to get signed and a list of roughly 20 potential sellers in my pipeline that I am communicating with. Bottom line is that the leads are good and the system works. This list is gold for a quality real estate professional who knows how to close listings and service clients.Seth
As we said at the start of this article, today’s customer is incredibly educated about what they’re buying. They take control of the buying process way before you enter the picture, leveraging all of that online information we talked about earlier. Still, if you’ve identified them as a lead, that means they are at least someone interested in what you’re selling. Your job, then, is to help them learn more — about your product or service, about industry trends, and about successful customers they can relate to and be inspired by.

Gone are the days that a marketer only relied on outbound techniques like trade shows, cold calling, and advertisements to get leads. Today’s buyer is in control. According to Forrester, buyers seek out three pieces of content about a vendor for every one piece sent by a marketer, and for every one piece sent by sales. Because of buyer self-education, your job as a marketer is to be heard through the noise and come up with new ways for leads to find you. To be a marketer in today’s world, you need a solid grasp of inbound in order to truly amplify your lead generation impact.
Visitor Tracking: Hotjar has a heatmap tool — a virtual tool which creates a color-coded representation of how a user navigates your site — that helps you understand what users want, care about, and do on your site. It records visitors and tells you where they spend the most time on your site. You can use it to gather information on your lead generation forms, feedback forms and surveys, and more.
Many marketing agencies offer lead generation services for business that don't wish to develop their own systems. These agencies will often have a network of companies and websites that it uses to promote its client businesses. When a visitor expresses interest in one of the agency's clients, the agency passes that lead back to the client. Often agencies will promote their clients through a directory or list of providers, and when a visitor requests a quote for a specific service, the agency alerts the appropriate client. Most agencies will allow clients to specify the type of leads they would like to receive. For example, a company might choose to limit leads to a certain geographic region.
Nurturing is so aptly named because it’s all about giving your new relationship what it needs to prosper.

Developing an effective lead nurturing strategy pays off: Companies that excel at lead nurturing generate 50% more sales-ready leads at 33% lower cost and boast 9% more sales reps making quota than companies that struggle with nurturing.

Zillow might say that their leads are exclusive, but there is no way to guarantee this; as several agents appear on each listing not claimed by ZPA agents, a lead might contact more than one agent. Additionally, it’s impossible to tell where a lead came from—a Google search or directly through the Zillow website. For those who want one-sale leads or exclusive ZIP codes, Market Leader and BoldLeads are probably better choices.

Remember when we talked about lead scoring? Well, it isn’t exactly doable without your sales team’s input. How will you know what qualifies a lead for sales without knowing if your defined SQLs are successfully sold? Your marketing and sales teams need to be aligned on the definitions and the process of moving a lead from MQL to SQL to opportunity before you even begin to capture leads.
