How to generate leads on your website

generate-leads

Let us consider a fancy situation, say, you have thousands of visitors on your company’s website. Yet, most of them would not contact you directly, even after spending time on the website. They might navigate your website, read content, watch videos, but won’t give out their contact details.

In this blog post, we will share how you can take your content (videos and articles) that exists on your website and use it to create credible leads for your sales team.

Identify your top content

Make a list of all your content on the website and identify the ones that would best capture your potential customer’s interest. For instance, you may find that you are getting higher conversion rates through videos, you can start creating landing page offers. These offers should not only create an interest in the mind of your reader, but also an urge to turn into a qualified lead.

Create a landing page with your content offer

After creating the desired landing page, start with writing a compelling headline and description of the content offer. You could also consider adding graphics and a customized form.

When selecting particular fields for the landing page form, remember the essence of your content. Videos can be great at the top of the sales funnel to induce your readers to become potential customers. However, by the time an individual is at the mid of the funnel, you need to obtain the minimal information required like name, company name, email address, region and phone number for your business development specialists to follow-up.

Create a thank you page

After you have created the landing page, consider building an acknowledgement page saying thank you. Once someone submits his/her form, he/she can view the thank you page for contacting your organization.

Create a call to action

The next step is to create a call-to-action on your website. This call-to-action will take  your visitors to the landing page, where they are to download the content offer. But, before creating the landing page, identify the pages on your website, where content offerings would be most appropriate for visitors. One of the most apt place would be your product pages.

Your calls to action must be clear, action-oriented and clearly defines your users ‘what to do’.

Come up with a workforce strategy

As your customers start pouring in, identify a workflow strategy that will work for you. You can use online tools to handle all landing page form submission leads by creating a simple three-step workflow. These tools, found in abundance online, allow you to create workflows that fit into your lead requirements, while managing each lead from initiation to the buying process.

Place the call-to-action on your website

Embed the CTA code on your website after you have successfully created one. It is important that the CTA lies on top of your site and stands out from the rest of the page.

There is no better entrepreneurial joy than  watching leads pouring in and your sales team closing them. But you need to identify what content is most effective in generating high quality leads for your sales team.
