Lead Management and Preparation for 2020

Tips for reviewing and managing leads in preparation for the new year

With the holidays upon us, your company’s year-end preparations are most likely well underway.  From tax preparations and accounting to team performance and department reviews, the end of the year provides us a chance to look at the successes (and failures) of previous years in order to make improvements in the year ahead.  Such opportunities don’t just apply to accounting and human resources; rather, your marketing and sales efforts should undergo the same review and preparations.

More specifically, your leads and customer relationship management tools can always benefit from tracking and tweaking as necessary, and since we are on the heels of 2020, there is no time like now to make sure your lead management is in order and ready for the new year.

Here are a few easy ways to better manage your sales leads and be properly positioned for new business:

  1. Measure Results – Which campaigns have been most effective in 2019? What content was most engaging and which outreach methods proved to be most successful?  In order to measure your success, you and your team must first decide what defines that success.  Ultimately, you will want to identify, monitor and make improvements based on the data you collect, and from there, you can determine the ROI of your campaigns and focus on those that lead to and increase sales.
  2. Manage Customer Relationships – To be effective in your sales efforts, your team must have the tools they need to track engagement and interaction with your current and future customers. Take time to review your Customer Relationship Management (CRM) tools, and make sure that all team members are properly trained and utilizing the system consistently and appropriately.  Your contact management system will only be as good as the data that is entered, so it is important that everyone is on the same page and understands their requirements and how to use it.  No matter the tool you choose, you will ultimately get the most out of it by integrating different channels such as your website, social and email marketing campaigns.
  3. Be Quick – As an HBW subscriber, you have access to new leads every week, and while a fresh batch of prospects is exactly what your sales team needs, they will only be of value if properly used. For this reason, it is important that you distribute new leads to your team expeditiously.  Furthermore, once contact is made with a prospect and they express interest, follow up should occur as soon as possible.  You will increase your closing rate if a prospect receives a response within 48 hours of making contact.  By responding quickly, you will be providing the service and response time that customers appreciate and expect.

By taking time now to improve your contact management systems and identify strengths and weaknesses in your sales and marketing efforts, you will be better positioned to convert prospects to customers and increase sales in the new year.

Tips for Happy Holiday Marketing

Black Friday has come and gone, and many of us are still in the midst of Cyber Monday sales that have now become “Cyber Week”, but believe it or not, the seasonal sales wave has just begun.  There are still a few weeks of gift-givers in search of the perfect present for their friends and family, making it the ideal time for you to spruce up your marketing efforts.

Here are a few easy tips that you can apply to your marketing strategy now to make the most of the holiday rush and get in front and center of your target audience:

Make it Easy – This time of year can be overwhelming for shoppers, and often it is challenging to work through the noise and figure out the perfect gift for everyone on their lists.  For this reason, make it easy for shoppers by offering several unique gift suggestions.  Consider aligning with a corporate partner to offer gift combinations, bundles or discounts.

Give Thanks Early – Don’t wait until the last weeks of December to send a holiday greeting to your customers.  Rather, send out holiday “thank you” emails and/or cards that show your gratitude for their business in the first weeks of December; this is also a good time to offer additional discounts, a gift guide and referral incentives.

Make the Most of Mobile – According to a recent article by Mashable, the future of shopping has gone mobile, and the proof is in this year’s “Black Friday” sales.  Based on a  holiday shopping report by Adobe, Black Friday 2019 saw a total of $7.4 billion in online sales, with $2.9 billion coming from consumers making purchases on their smartphones; this officially made “Black Friday” of 2019 the biggest U.S. mobile shopping day on record.  Due to the fact that smartphone purchases made up 39 percent of all e-commerce sales (a 21 percent increase over last year), it is crucial that you set your email marketing, website, landing pages and online stores (if applicable) to be optimized for mobile viewing.

Get Camera Ready – While you will most likely send holiday greeting cards in the mail or by email, don’t overlook the power of video for sending a holiday message to customers.  According to Wordstream, 64 percent of consumers make a purchase after watching branded social videos, and the power of video marketing continues to grow. In previous posts, we have explored video for the purpose of marketing your products and services (instructional, behind-the-scenes, portfolio and project highlights), and the holiday season is a great opportunity to use video for connecting to customers.  Videos may include a creative holiday greeting, personal holiday messages from employees, or a peek into your own holiday parties and/or seasonal preparations.  While you always want to maintain a professional appearance, a holiday video can also be a chance to show a lighter and more personal side to your business.

The holiday season gives all of us a chance to celebrate and focus on things for which we are grateful, and by extending your own company celebrations and appreciation to your customers, you can connect with them in a way that is special, sincere and memorable for them well into the new year.

3 Quick and Easy Marketing Tactics

Three easy marketing tactics that you can do right now to make a lasting impact on the growth of your business

 

In the service industry, word-of-mouth advertising is golden, but it will only get you so far when it comes to generating new business.  Most small business owners know that services simply don’t sell themselves, and it takes a consistent and strategic marketing effort to build and maintain momentum.

Truth be told, most contractors are not experts in designing and implementing impactful marketing plans, and often smaller businesses do not have the time or budget to hire a full-time marketing manager.  For this reason, it is important to have some quick and easy reminders and methods to add some instant strength to your marketing strategy.

Building upon our previous and most recent posts “3 in 3 – Three Marketing Tips in Three Minutes” and “3 More Marketing Tactics”, here is a list of three actions you can take to give a boost to your marketing efforts today:

1 – Make a Video – According to a recent report, roughly 86% of marketers are using video content to advertise, educate, and entertain, and one-third of online activity is spent watching video.  That adds up to a lot of space and time where your company can be front and center.  Not to mention adding video content to your emails can increase your click rate by 300%!  Consider featuring your latest build or a client testimonial to get your video engine going.  From there, the door is wide open… From tutorials and DIY to company and industry events, there are so many valuable activities to explore, cover and share.  Remember to keep the content professional, visually appealing, informative and under two minutes (preferably ~1 minute) to keep viewers engaged.

2- Share Content – While it is ideal to have everyone sharing your company’s content, it is equally important to share industry-relevant posts from other sources.  In addition to demonstrating that you remain current on topics that are buzzing in the industry, sharing content also indirectly engages the other source’s audience.  Be sure to tag the source, share their hashtags and provide positive feedback.  After all, social media is “social” by design, and by spreading the word on industry news by others, you can begin expanding your own network in the digital realm.

3 – Get Listed – If you have not already done so, your business should be listed with online directories.  Just think, mega directory Yelp has over 185 million reviews published, and your business can be just one of the many that has positive feedback on your services that will rank higher with search engines.  There are numerous location-specific and industry-specific business listing sites from which to choose, so it is important to list with the sources that are the best fit for your services.  You will also want to take into account that someone on your team will need to be responsible for tracking and responding to reviews (positive and negative) and performing profile updates as needed. To get started, some free business listing directories include Google (aka Google My Business), LinkedIn Business Directory, Apple Maps and Facebook.

While there is no one-size-fits-all solution for marketing success, your company can test and measure methods and tactics to find the ones that engage your target audience and gain the greatest response.  Before you know it, you will have your own list of top marketing tactics that are specific to your business and can be used in your campaigns and strategies moving forward.
