The Importance of Lead Nurturing [& How it Can Help Your Business Grow]
We know what you’re thinking - you’ve heard of a lead before, but you don’t really know all too much about what nurturing a lead means. Let’s roll up our sleeves and start digging deep into what it’s all about. First, did you know that lead nurturing is an important part of making more sales, and, in turn, generating more revenue? If not, it's okay. That is exactly why we wrote this article.
What is Lead Nurturing?
According to our friends at HubSpot, lead nurturing is the process of building relationships with your prospects with the goal of earning their business when they’re ready. Sounds simple enough. In short, it’s all about meeting prospects with the right information at the right time. In order to have the right information, you must anticipate the needs of your potential buyer. When doing so, take into account their characteristics, such as job title, industry, role, and experience level.
For example, let's say you have a free offer on your website that visitors can download in exchange for their email address. That email address provides no value unless you actually take the time to reach out to them and learn more about them. However, chances are this visitor may not be quite ready to buy just yet. In fact, they’re most likely still in the awareness or consideration stage of the buyer’s journey and are researching other available options.
But alas - don’t fret; all is not lost! This is where lead nurturing comes into play. Now that you have their email address, you can enroll them into an automated email sequence, featuring high-quality, relevant information and content that assists in solving their problems.
The main idea here is that you continue to deliver quality resources and value to nurture your visitors toward a sale. And that, my friends, is why it’s called “lead nurturing.” Savvy?
The point is this: nurturing your leads through email sequence campaigns is a major part of an effective inbound marketing strategy.
