In this article, 25 experts share their best business lead generation ideas with you.

For over a decade, B2B marketers have used gated content (anything behind a lead capture form that requires the user to trade information for access) to generate leads from their websites. Gated content such as ebooks, videos, webinars, etc. are common assets that can be used as a value-exchange to anonymous visitors on your site who have yet to hand over their contact details.
The platform allows you to create a profile with backlinks to your website or landing page, which makes answering questions a useful means for getting you direct exposure to leads who are asking about your solution. In addition to this, Quora's full-text search function gives you the power to search any term relevant to your business making tapping into the right conversations quick and easy.
Order Status Emails — For companies with e-commerce sites, this series of emails keeps customers informed about the status of their orders and typically includes order confirmation, shipment confirmation, shipment tracking, delivery confirmation, and receipts. Transactional emails such as these typically have average open rates that exceed 75%; however, few marketers use these opportunities to build customer relationships and grow revenue.
Your use of influencer marketing in your lead generation ideas doesn’t have to be passive. Reach out to influencers to obtain an exclusive interview. Create content around that interview. As you do more interviews, create a highlights piece of content. Repurpose interviews into video content, quizzes, visuals and other lead-generating content types.
Persuade them (lightly) on how you can help them. This should be a light touch, and often at the end of the incentive, on why and how you can help them, and why they should go with them. You could end the course with an open ended email, asking them how they liked it, or you can set up simple conditions to send the leads contact info to your own sales people if they reach the end of the incentive but still haven’t reached out to you.
Many email newsletter software vendors offer transactional email support, which gives companies the ability to include promotional messages within the body of transactional emails. There are also software vendors that offer specialized transactional email marketing services, which include providing targeted and personalized transactional email messages and running specific marketing campaigns (such as customer referral programs).[citation needed]

Email marketing is the act of sending a commercial message, typically to a group of people, using email. In its broadest sense, every email sent to a potential or current customer could be considered email marketing. It usually involves using email to send advertisements, request business, or solicit sales or donations, and is meant to build loyalty, trust, or brand awareness. Marketing emails can be sent to a purchased lead list or a current customer database. The term usually refers to sending email messages with the purpose of enhancing a merchant's relationship with current or previous customers, encouraging customer loyalty and repeat business, acquiring new customers or convincing current customers to purchase something immediately, and sharing third-party ads.

Gmail contact groups are great for sending a single email message to a specific set of people, but what if you want to give each email a personal touch, such as with a newsletter or promotional offer? Unlike Microsoft Office, Google’s productivity suite doesn’t have a native mail-merge feature you can leverage to do this. But don’t sweat it: With a little help from Google Sheets and a free downloadable script, you can personalize bulk email messages in Gmail in minutes.


Most email marketing providers include split testing or A/B testing in the platform so that you can test multiple elements including different subject lines, the inclusion of video content, different email formats, and many other aspects. Split testing is one of the best ways to optimize your email marketing and nearly half of marketers use it to test alternate subject lines. By taking advantage of the split testing capabilities of your ESP, you can increase your email open rates and engagement success.


Solo ad mailings and emails can be a very important and precious asset to you and your company. Or else they can fall dreary on their face depending on the target audience you are emailing or the subscribers who have listed to that seller or the online magazine. Therefore it is very important to look for Targeted solo ads. Continuing with the tips and tricks of using solo ads, you first need to comprehend fully the meaning and purpose of a solo ad. For example, if you are a new online entrepreneur who might be very skilled about their product or service that they are offering but are nil in the process of marketing and promoting. Then, you would know little about such antics.
Dedicated Resources: Sponsorship emails and management of the vendor relationship require a big marketing effort and tight control. “For this style of sponsorship to be successful there needs to be a dedicated team behind it that understands data, brand synergies, and the ability to unearth unseen co-branding opportunities,” writes Jackie Fast, Managing Director at Slingshot Sponsorship. If you have a small marketing team, it might be tough to take full advantage of sponsorship emails.
Newsletter emails inform customers of current promotions, sales, and the newest offering. Newsletter emails are more than merely sales tools, they also help develop a long-term impact on readers. Mark Brownlow, in EmailMarketingReports.com, says that a newsletter email "should provide the readers with value, which means more than just sales messages. It should contain information which informs, entertains or otherwise benefits the readers."

Email marketing messages can also help you increase traffic to your website. You can link to relevant website content within your email message or craft a compelling CTA that asks readers to head back to your website to take a specific action. If you really want to make your CTA stand out, you may want to use a colorful button, which makes it easy as possible for readers to take notice of your CTA and make their way back to your website.

Every e-commerce company is familiar with the dreaded abandoned cart. Consumers visit your site, put items in their shopping cart, and then leave without making a final purchase. Whether they get busy with something else or want to take time to think about their purchase, it is vital that you take the opportunity to reengage these customers. With email automation, you can send an automated email message to these consumers, encouraging them to come back to your site and finalize their purchase.

Get them to buy a second time! This seems obvious, but it has serious implications for your email marketing strategy. Due to high customer acquisition costs, most retailers break-even on the first purchase, the F1, and it’s only on repeat purchases that they generate profits. And yet if you were to look at all your customers today, you’d probably have 80%–90% F1s. Put another way, 80%–90% single-purchase, marginally profitable customers.
Next to guest blogging yourself on different sites, try inviting one of your audience influencers to write a guest blog on your site. Just like you guest blogging on another site, you can give them a backlink and a platform to increase their audience. If you really want a famous person on your site, you might even consider paying her or him for writing a guest post. The goal is that you get a quality article and most likely the influencer will share it with their audience.

Email marketing is, quite simply, using the tools of email to deliver advertising messages. The vast majority of Internet users have email accounts which allow them to receive an almost unlimited number of messages instantly. According to a survey conducted by Pew Internet, 82% of U.S. adults use the Internet, and email is one of the fastest, cheapest and easiest ways for marketers to connect with customers.

Newsletters are great not only for marketing to prospects, but also for nurturing your existing customers with company news and events, product announcements and feedback requests. Such ongoing communication will help you retain happy customers and collect valuable insights about them. What are the tidbits of information they click on the most? Can you upsell to them at all? Don’t forget that your existing customer base can also spread the word about your company and share resources that you publish with their network.
Your leads and customers are more likely to read and take action on your marketing emails because many of them are looking forward to receiving this type of communication from you. In fact, according to Marketing Sherpa, 72% of U.S. adults prefer to receive email communications from companies. This is compared to only 17% of U.S. adults who prefer communication through social media channels.
The pervasive nature of email is clear. 91% of Americans use email every day, so there is a 91% chance that your email will be seen in some form. Social media marketing does not provide that rate of exposure to a target market. Email conversion rates are three times higher than social media according to McKinsey & Company. Since the end goal is to convert into sales, this number is meaningful.
The diverse array of companies involved in email marketing ensures that no one party can make changes that would have a widespread effect, and unlike Facebook or Twitter, if you invest the time and money into building and cultivating a great email list, your subscriber list will be an asset you own. Thus you’ll be able to leverage your list without the threat of someone limiting its effectiveness.
To generate brand loyalty and develop a brand persona, companies can write newsletters to connect with their audience. Newsletters should be reflective of brand language and tone while reaching out to subscribers on a personal level. Companies often discuss business enhancements, highlight employee additions or successes, link to new website content, share pictures of office outings, and even ask trivia questions – anything to engage with their audience outside of a sales-driven strategy. It is best to plan these campaigns on a monthly or quarterly basis for consistency to remind subscribers of the human quality of the business. Build trust through interesting communication that is not directly intended to drive specific sales.
The low cost and relative ease of carrying out an email marketing campaign means that it is a tool that is accessible to almost any business. A small mechanic's shop can put together an email list and then send out coupons for oil changes or brake jobs. The scope and sophistication of these campaigns may not be as great as larger businesses, but that doesn't mean they won't be effective.

Not everyone your business has ever interacted with can be counted as a true lead. Maybe you’ve connected on social media but don’t have other contact details; maybe they’re in your address book but you have no idea whether they’re really interested in your services. The following strategies are designed to pull more of the people in your business’s orbit into your list of leads.

Next, we’ll comb through our catalog of blog posts that are on this broader topic—say something like how to nail your follow up strategy—and we’ll start organizing these posts into a single Google Doc along this cohesive theme. We’ll take inventory of any major gaps that might’ve been overlooked and begin backfilling where necessary, while at the same time removing redundant content that’s been covered already in the book.
Email marketing is an important marketing tool for any small business. Let’s get that on the table up front. Although it may not be as glamorous as social media marketing platforms like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or Instagram, it has proven to be more effective for delivering conversions and higher ROI. When small businesses are looking for a cost effective, shareable, measurable form of marketing, the benefits of email marketing place it right at the top of the list.
After re-launching our website, we saw bounce rate decrease and conversions increase; but we continued to iterate through homepage variations, optimizing calls to action and messaging even further to narrow to our target customer. Now, the website is the top generator of leads for our sales team, and has drastically reduced our marketing costs to acquire a customer.

By tightening up the Club’s brand guidelines, we installed a level of consistency and quality across all platforms, playing paramount importance by providing a fresher and more modern look, whilst not interfering with the crest and colour palette that the supporters of this family club will forever love.
Pro Tip: Don’t just consider personal goals that you want to achieve as a company. Think about what your target audience would be interested in following. If you’re a marketing company, then maybe that is your journey to attracting X visitors. But, if you’re a fitness company, you could do a company-wide contest for employees to lose weight and have them write blog posts documenting their journey to a slimmer waist.
Brand awareness is one of the most important benefits of email marketing. Email marketing helps you increase your brand awareness by getting your email messages into the inboxes of potential new customers. The more consistent your communication is with your email subscribers, the more likely they will be to think of your business when they are looking for your products or services.
Your customers have signed up for your marketing newsletters because they want to hear from you. They like the content you send and keeping them engaged is one of the biggest wins for any email marketer. Your content is one of your most valuable marketing tools and you can use it to build other areas of your marketing strategy. If people love what you do, then they will sign up to see more great content.
