Inbound Marketing Data:  An Often-Overlooked Intellectual Asset of a Business

Posted by Dean Moothart

October 30, 2018

You can’t think of your marketing database as just a list of names and contact information. It’s so much more than that. This data represents what’s possible for your business. It’s your future customers and referral sources. It’s next month’s closed deals and next year’s revenue. A company’s marketing database can be the lifeblood of its revenue growth strategy. Consequently, it should be regarded as a key intellectual asset of the business. As with any corporate asset, there should be a plan to protect it, enhance, grow it and leverage it.

Four Times an Inbound Lead Should Always Be Passed to Sales

Posted by Dean Moothart

January 18, 2018

The objective of every inbound marketing program is to generate leads and build a consistent sales pipeline. It would be ideal if every lead that was generated was highly qualified and highly motivated. That’s what the sales team is craving, right? If that was the case, then it would make sense that every lead should be handed off to the sales team right away. Unfortunately, the real world is not that straightforward.

While inbound marketing will generate qualified/motivated leads, it will also produce “not-ready-to-buy-yet” leads (Not Ready) and “not-sure-if-this-is-an-opportunity-or-not” leads (Not Sure).  So how should these leads be handled?  Should they be passed to sales too?

Breathe Life into Old, Dead Leads

Posted by Dean Moothart

July 19, 2017

Most marketing organizations have put their marketing plan in place for the year. It has received a blessing from the executive team, and has been funded by the CFO. Plans are now being executed, and soon they’ll be a flurry of activity—tradeshows, webinars, direct mail, telemarketing, email blasts, print ads, banner ads, etc. And if all goes well, that flurry of activity will lead to an avalanche of leads. But what happened to last year’s avalanche of leads? Maybe the flurry of leads never came last year. Or maybe your sales team closed them all. More likely though, is that the avalanche did come, and those leads are still sitting in your CRM. Your sales team probably called them once or twice. Maybe they even had an appointment with a few of them. But now they are stalled. Or dead. And just sitting in your CRM.

4 Lead Nurturing Email Workflows You Can Use at Each Stage of the Buyer’s Journey

Posted by Laura MacPherson

June 23, 2017

First, what’s a “workflow”? It’s used by HubSpot and others to describe a series of automated emails that are sent to contacts for lead nurturing. 

You probably already have workflows set up around your premium content campaigns, sending follow-up emails with content related to what a prospect downloaded or signed up to receive. (If not, get on that! It’s a great place to start with lead nurturing.)

But workflows can be especially effective when they’re tied to a prospect’s stage in the buyer’s journey. Prospects who’ve done considerable research and are already familiar with what you offer need something different than those who have just started looking at different options to solve their issue. Here are four workflows you can use at each stage of the buyer’s journey.

How Many Times Should I Follow Up With an Inbound Lead?

Posted by Dani Buckley

March 3, 2017

As with most marketing and sales questions, there is a short and long answer to this question. The short answer is: as many times as it takes. The longer answer isn’t quite so black and white.

Let’s start with exploring why someone would ask this question in the first place. What I’ve found in my many years, working with companies of all shapes and sizes, is that there is a natural inclination to treat inbound (or website or marketing) leads very differently than prospects identified and cultivated by individual salespeople. This is especially true for those industries that still rely heavily on cold calling.
