Looking Back: Why I Wish I Had Hired an Inbound Marketing Agency

Posted by Shaye Smith

February 23, 2018

Prior to joining the team at LeadG2 and working on the agency side of things, I was on what you would call the ‘client’ side of the inbound marketing world. Let’s jump back a few years… I was the digital communications manager for my company and I, in concert with our website and ecommerce manager, were on the hunt for something… but we weren’t 100% sure what that was at the time. After doing our research, we came to the conclusion that inbound marketing was what we needed. But not just the inbound marketing strategy. We needed the technology and tools that a software platform could offer and enable us to do inbound marketing efficiently.

Two Dozen Tips for Building a World Class Content Marketing Program

Posted by Alan Vitberg

February 14, 2018

Is it Time to Update Your Content Marketing Game?

I’m starting to believe that content marketing as part of executing a growth strategy is reaching a point of saturation and diminishing returns.

Quantity over quality. Poor writing. Lack of strategic focus. Advertorial. One and done efforts with little to no promotion. Hiring cheap and getting cheap results.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

February 13, 2018

Email is still an efficient method of communicating with your prospects and customers. Its efficiency can be significantly enhanced, however, if it’s automated. Today’s marketing automation software allows you to eliminate time-consuming tasks of writing and sending emails. Not only will automating emails improve your team’s productivity, it will also eliminate the chance of sending poorly-written emails composed by individual team members.  Wouldn’t it be great to have the confidence that a prospect would never again receive an email message with spelling or grammatical errors or with messaging outside the corporate brand parameters?

Uh-Oh… We Ran Out of Blog Ideas! Until We Tapped Into Our Sales Team

Posted by Shannon Delmarle

January 9, 2018

  

Part of a content strategy any company should be doing is blogging. Blogging not only creates fresh content for search engines to crawl, but it also can help you and your employees position themselves as thought leaders. But since you need to publish new content several times throughout the month in order to stay relevant and increase subscribers, it can become really hard to come up with new topics or fresh insights to write about without sounding repetitive.    

This is when we turned to our sales team and simply asked, “What are the top five questions you get asked most during a proposal or sales call?” Surprisingly, this flushed out several topics for us to brainstorm around and create really awesome blog articles that were highly read and shared. By finding out the most common issues/pain points from some of our top prospects, we were able to assume that the probability of others out there having the same problems was very likely.
