Using Content Marketing to Drive Lead Generation

Do you remember generating lists of prospects and phone numbers and sitting down to dial for dollars? That was probably some of the least productive efforts I ever took part in. Do you remember 100 calls will yield 20 contacts which will yield 5 presentations which will yield 1 sale? Lead generation has come a long way.

What better way to prospect than to let folks know what your specialties are and to share your knowledge with them. When it comes to win/win this one checks all the boxes.

In reality, today’s leads are much more layered, having grown up alongside more sophisticated marketing segmentation. Leads don’t have to be people screaming their intent to purchase; they can be newsletter subscribers, logged-in users, or converted customers waiting to be re-engaged.
