Now that we’ve covered the basics, let’s dive into some specific techniques you can use to grow your business.
One of the most popular and effective growth marketing techniques is content marketing. Content marketing involves creating valuable content that attracts and engages your target audience. This could be anything from blog posts, videos, infographics, eBooks, etc. The key is to produce high-quality content that people will actually want to read or watch. Once you have a solid content strategy in place, you’ll want to make sure you’re promoting it. This could be through social media channels like Facebook and Twitter or search engine optimization (SEO) techniques such as optimizing your blog titles for keywords that are related to your business.
Another popular strategy is inbound marketing which involves attracting customers by offering them helpful resources – whether this is a free eBook or an informative webinar. In order for inbound marketing to work well, though, the content has to provide value so users will view it favorably when they share it with their networks on platforms like LinkedIn and Facebook. Here’s how HubSpot explains what makes great inbound marketing: “The best forms of content offer relevant information about solving customer problems while demonstrating your brand’s personality and expertise in the process. Also, these forms of content can be created at a much lower cost than traditional types – for example, webinars don’t require huge budgets or teams to produce.”
Once you’ve gotten some quality traffic coming to your website from various sources (SEO, social media), it’s important that they convert into leads/sales if possible. Conversion optimization is all about increasing conversions on any particular page by testing out different variables such as headlines, imagery, bullet points, etc. If you’re looking for a place to get started with conversion optimization check out this article. Another great resource is Unbounce, which has tons of resources related specifically to optimizing landing pages for conversions.
Once you’ve generated a lead, it’s important to continue nurturing that relationship over time until they’re ready to buy. This is where lead nurturing comes in – it’s the process of providing relevant and helpful content to leads in order for them to move further down the sales funnel. HubSpot has a great guide on how to create a lead nurturing campaign. Some things you’ll want to consider include: what type of content (blog posts, eBooks, videos), frequency of contact, and the length of the sales cycle.
