  • CTAs on HPCTAs on every pageLanding Pages for every campaign &amp; offer … if you are doing any Paid media, PPC, etc and you arent sending that traffic to a dedicated landing page, or a landing page with a custom URL – you are wasting your effort …

  • You know your audience … you’ve captured their attention and by converting with you once, they have given you an idea of what they want to know about.Tailor your communication with them … if they downloaded something on social media – follow up with more social media related assets … if it was SEO or lead gen, then you should be sending different copy, content and offers …

  • Both sides of the sales &amp; marketing relationship have a responsibility – and you can help your sales team be successfulBy defining clear criteria or lead goals in the form of an SLA – Service level agreement … we only turn over about ¼ of the leads we generate to our sales team on a monthly basis … and of those – they should still be prioritized … And then giving sales people tools, like lead scoring or grading, to help them work their leads most efficiently Have an SLA &amp; Give Sales Tools to Filter / Select5 Steps to Establishing A Sales and Marketing SLA  1.       Run a closed loop analysis on your historical inbound lead segments.  Calculate the profitability of each segment. 2.       Classify profitable lead segments as “workable leads”, which are ready for sales.  Filter out and/or nurture “non-workable leads”.  3.       Determine the number of “workable leads” per sales rep per month that marketing is accountable for.  This metric becomes your marketing SLA.4.       Define the number and frequency of attempts that sales will make against each “workable lead”.  This metric becomes your sales SLA.5.       Automate the daily monitoring of the process.  Key metrics to monitor are:a.       “Workable leads” produced per sales rep, month to dateb.      Attempts per “workable lead”c.       Connect rate per “workable lead”d.      Conversion rate to forecasted pipeline per “workable lead”Read more: http://blog.hubspot.com/blog/tabid/6307/bid/5885/Improving-Sales-and-Marketing-Alignment-The-Marketing-and-Sales-SLA.aspx#ixzz0u4gxzceT
  • Once it is clear that sales should engage … you should be helping them leverage all the tools you’ve been using throughtout the marketing lifecycle to develop a personal relationship-give them access to all the leads data – what pages they’ve viewed, forms downloaded and even which email campaigns they’ve been sent-employ social crm by providing social media profiles when available so they can quickly see what is on a prospects mind both personally and professionally for rapport building and to understand the dynamics of their business … Once sales has connected – they can continue using and sharing material with the prospect that maybe they have not seen before and leverage all the great inbound content you’ve created … This is another phenomenal way that blog posts and webinars live on and provide value further down the sales cycle.
  • Finally – to pull it all together – marketers should be measuring their results … learning from them and taking action to execute even smarter growth strategies in the future.Here’s where thinking like a scientist really comes in … http://www.flickr.com/photos/marsdd/2986989396/ - mars discovery districthttp://www.flickr.com/photos/michigancommunities/4728050732/ - mmlflickr
  • Measure everything … you are part scientist – part anthropologist to crunch the data … come up with hypotheses around why a certain outcome occurred and then test that hypothesis again until you find a winning formula … then do it again …
  • Needs more images … Do you have an image of where you are presenting next …Or tweets / emails of folks who follow you?
  • Measure by source … and measure by campaign … combining your most effective channels with your most effective tactics brings the most bang for buck and you should know what they are … Results Speak Louder than WordsMeasuring success with HubspotOrganic traffic growth visual (attached to email)Tracking our competitors in HubspotDiscovering keywords with Hubspot and targeting them in blogsThought Leadership status within a huge industryGot attention of SAP, a Fortune 500 giantInbound Marketing &gt; Twitter &gt; Lead &gt; $$$
  • It all comes back down to cost per lead … and finding the way to generate more, higher quality leads with less overall investment.
