5 Lead Gen Techniques & how to REALLY Use Them.

5 lead gen techniques

In today's competitive digital landscape, lead generation remains a fundamental discussion in the advertising and funnel-building industry.

Effectively acquiring new leads can boost your marketing efforts and increase your revenue.

Doing so without breaking the bank, while still maintaining quality, seems impossible.

It doesn’t have to be.

Here are 5 techniques you should be using in your lead gen spread:

1. Content Marketing

Content marketing involves creating and sharing valuable, relevant content to attract and engage your target audience.

This technique includes blog posts, eBooks, blog articles, and videos, which we know help build brand authority and trust.

Where content marketing shines is in adding this technique to other techniques. After all, “regular” content marketing doesn’t cut it anymore.
For example, video sales letters on your landing page or free eBooks in your LinkedIn articles may turn more heads.

2. Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

SEO enhances your website's visibility on search engines by optimizing your content and technical aspects.

High-ranking search results increase your chances of capturing leads. Effective SEO strategies involve keyword research, on-page optimization, technical SEO, and backlink building.

What could make your SEO strategy stand out is the incorporation of technical SEO optimizations.

This includes small changes to your site’s backend to nudge yourself into ranking potential.
Pro Tip: Meta descriptions, alt texts & header tags go a long way in both the short and long term.

3. Email Marketing

Email marketing is a powerful tool for lead generation especially when nurturing and remarketing.

Segmenting your email list allows you to send personalized, targeted messages that resonate with specific groups within your audience.

Offering exclusive content, discounts, or events can entice new leads to subscribe.

To stay above the rest of the email teams out there, make sure to practice email hygiene!
Focus on adding the right tags, segment audiences, and allocate campaigns accordingly.

4. Social Media Ads

Social media platforms like Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram provide excellent opportunities for lead generation.

Paid ads allow you to target specific demographics, while organic content helps build brand loyalty and engagement.

To get your paid campaigns running smoothly, be sure to define your goals before starting.
If you’re looking for clicks, optimize your CPC. If you’re looking for reach, make sure you’re paying the lowest possible CPM with the utmost reach.

5. Search Ads (PPC)

PPC advertising, such as Google Ads or Bing Ads (still alive and kicking), drives traffic to your site by displaying ads based on user searches or browsing behavior.

These ads appear prominently on search engine results pages, making them highly visible to potential leads.

Optimize your ad copy and landing pages to ensure they resonate with your target audience, and adjust your bids to maximize your return on investment (ROI).
Want to gain the upper hand? Remarketing campaigns are an excellent way to get back the potentially “lost” leads that just slipped through the cracks.

To Sum it All Up

Mastering online lead generation is about understanding your audience and choosing the right combination of techniques.

Each of these methods offers unique benefits, so integrating them into a cohesive strategy is crucial for maximizing your lead generation efforts.
One thing to note is that these techniques are only as useful as your funnel. With Coreg as your go-to tool, your effort spent generating leads will definitely reflect in your ROI.
