Last week, we hosted a webinar with Brian Carroll, Executive Director of Revenue Optimization at MECLABS. Brian stopped by to dig deep into the concept of lead nurturing, "a relevant, consistent conversation with viable potential customers, regardless of their timing to buy." The webinar includes a case study and quickly jumps into the four key steps to effective lead engagement:
1. Develop a foundational database
2. Desgin a content library
3. Measure and tweak
4. Cycle back to improve your database
which Brian ellaborates on how to accomplish efficiently.
*Our featured speaker, Brian Carroll, Executive Director, Revenue Optimization at MECLABS, wrote two blogs to answer lead generation and nurturing questions that we were unable to address during the webinar. To view the Q&A, go to B2B blog and Marketing Sherpa Blog.
We received many questions that we were not able to address during the webinar. Several of these dealt with creating new content and repurposing existing content. The rule of thumb is to create one piece of content and repurpose it into at least 4 pieces of content. Stay tuned next week for an in-depth post on how to do this!
