The Definitive Guide to Lead Nurturing
Lead nurturing is becoming increasingly important as consumers’ relationship with marketing changes. Buyers tend to take time to make a purchase, and that process includes self-education and building trust with the company they plan to buy from. Additionally, they engage with brands from multiple channels, including social media, web, email, and more usually before marketing efforts reach them directly. To maintain a relationship with these leads, you must develop consistent, targeted, and timely communication with buyers at their own pace throughout the sales cycle.
By implementing a marketing automation platform, you can develop flexible, adaptive communications at scale by developing a lead nurturing strategy and program.
