Although the ultimate goal of a webinar may be to get leads for your business, you shouldn’t make it all about you. These events should revolve around imparting your knowledge as an industry leader on your attendees. If you do a great job presenting, these attendees may see you as an expert who can be consulted for your services, or as a source for a problem-solving product.
The content marketing technique, though well known, is not used by many companies because it is not as easy as it seems. Creating content that solves the problems of potential customers, is targeted for a specific audience and is interesting and visually appealing is difficult and outsourcing the content or creating an automated system doesn’t seem to do the job. This can also be very time-consuming. There is no quick guide to achieve success in this but a series of trials and errors can help you do the required analysis and do the task of content marketing adequately.
As a business owner, imagine that I’m just doing a research, I don’t know exact dates of my holiday (it mostly depends on your availability) and I’m not sure how long I want to stay. I need to find out the options, consider them and talk with my partner. If we would talk on the phone, you would give me dates but what’s next? I would hang up anyway to think about these dates. And that’s not closing a deal. That’s inconvenience for me, because I need to write them down anyway.
In marketing, lead generation is the initiation of consumer interest or enquiry into products or services of a business. Leads can be created for purposes such as list building, e-newsletter list acquisition or for sales leads. The methods for generating leads typically fall under the umbrella of advertising, but may also include non-paid sources such as organic search engine results or referrals from existing customers.
