Four Reasons Sales Needs to be Onboard with Your Inbound Marketing Strategy

Posted by Dean Moothart

July 3, 2018

The most common mistake marketers make when designing and executing an inbound marketing strategy is attempting to do it all by themselves. Doing anything solo usually adds additional risk. Team efforts almost always prevail over one-man shows – just ask Lebron. Batman had Robin. Ben had Jerry. Lewis had Clark. And Lennon had McCartney. Heck, even when I was 12 years old, I was told to never go swimming in the lake without a “buddy.” So marketing needs to team up with sales to mitigate risk and increase the likelihood of success.

7 Questions to Ask a Prospective Marketing Partner that Specializes in a Specific Niche

Posted by Dean Moothart

April 6, 2018

Market specialization is becoming a more prevalent business strategy for marketing agencies. With this strategy, the marketing agency makes a conscious decision to only support the unique marketing requirements of a particular industry or niche. From the client's perspective, they hope they can leverage the experience and key learnings of other similar companies. They feel like they won’t have to be a guinea pig or recreate the wheel. From the agency perspective, it is typically a marketing and branding play. It allows them to fine-tune their positioning as a subject matter expert and thought leader.

Rome Wasn’t Built in a Day

March 27, 2018

Neither was your marriage, your home, or your business. Something of any value takes time, and in most cases, time to succeed. When a business owner opens a business, they developed a plan for success, right? (They should.) They created forecasts of revenue, a timetable to profitability, and tactics to make it happen. After two weeks, two months, or even two years, they didn't panic and pull the plug, did they? Probably not. In fact, if it didn't start off like they planned, they probably went back to their plan and readjusted some numbers and came up with some new ideas to get it back on track.

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 LeadG2

February 14, 2018

Is it Time to Update Your Content Marketing Game?

We are 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.

Can You Answer These 9 Questions About Your B2B Prospects?

Posted by Dani Buckley

February 6, 2018

When it comes to developing a strategic marketing plan or sales process, one of the first things we recommend any company to do is to get a clear and accurate understanding of their customers and prospects. What’s key here is that this profile (commonly called a Target or Buyer Persona) is based on research, not assumptions. Which means you’ll need to conduct some actual research (or hire a company like LeadG2 to do it for you). The most effective way of doing this is with a mix of online surveys and live interviews. The surveys allow for a large sampling size, while the interviews allow for a deeper dive and further understanding. You can dive a little deeper into what that target persona survey process might look like here, but for the sake of this article we’ll be focusing on what it is exactly that your Target Persona should tell you about your B2B prospects so that you can have better and smarter marketing, content, and sales conversations.

"Who are you?

Who, who, who, who?

Who are you?
