Lead nurturing is the process of developing relationships with buyers at every stage of the buyer’s journey. In practice, lead nurturing is a marketing effort focused on engaging with your leads and customers in a way that encourages them to progress toward a specific action.
Lead nurturing is the timely, efficient, and targeted approach to connecting with your contacts. And by taking this kind of approach, you can deliver helpful content with the right context.
Successful lead nurturing helps you focus on providing value to your leads by offering them the information they need at the right time. Each lead you have in your database should be nurtured according to their interests and lifecycle stages.
Pages they’ve visited and content they’ve consumed all indicate shifting interests. Good nurturing adapts the messaging to stay relevant and helps you win new customers, faster. Good nurturing helps you keep up the conversation with your contacts. And this helps you continue to connect after they become customers and could be looking for more information from you and your company.
You provide this value to your customers, and they give you value in return, helping you
grow your business. This is where you see success with lead nurturing. It’s the best of both worlds – growth for your leads and growth for you.
