If you're generating lots of hits, traffic, clicks and visits, but none of them convert to actual qualified leads, what good are you doing?
With all the things you can do, and all the money you spend to promote your business, it's pointless if you can’t engage with a decision maker who has a need for your product or service, and who wants to talk to you about how you can help.
Put another way, if Marketing says it's doing its job, and Sales says "the leads are no good," you have a conversion problem.
To be clear, everyone's situation is different. So if you want to fix your conversion rate, we're going to have to dig into the problem and figure out exactly what's wrong in order to fix it. But there are a couple of consistent themes.
First, you need to make sure that the people you're reaching are decision makers, or at least decision influencers. Otherwise, you're wasting your marketing dollars.
Second, providing information, if there's no intent or ability to buy, is another a waste of time and money. So don't do it. You don't get paid to educate non-buyers.
Third, improving metrics that don't connect directly to sales is delusional. Marketing must be accountable for the conversion rate. Otherwise you're just shouting into an empty room.
And putting the burden on your salespeople to convert "junk" leads into opportunities doesn't solve the problem either. It merely shifts the cost to them - sometimes perniciously so.
In short, if your Marketing department designed a program that doesn't generate qualified sales leads, they're failing.

Whether it's due to the pandemic, the economy, or advances in technology, channels, media, buyers, markets and entire sectors have totally changed in the last few months.
And so more and more Marketing and Sales Executives ask us, "How can I accomplish my goals? Because what worked yesterday just doesn't work anymore."
Or we hear "We just need more leads", yet companies get hundreds of leads - and none convert, or ever close. What's going on??
When we dig into the problem, what we find is that many companies don't just need more or better leads. What they need is a new strategy - new positioning, better targeting, and different tactics. Anything else is just a band-aid.
As the One-Stop Shop for All Your Sales and Marketing Needs, LeadGen.com does more than generate leads. We also help our clients develop the right strategy - one that enables them to stay in business, to survive, and to prosper.
Do you find yourself wondering why a strategy that used to work no longer works? Or why your close rate has fallen through the floor?
We can help.
