How to optimize your mobile lead generation
Learn best practices for mobile user experience and start nurturing prospects no matter where they go by optimizing your mobile lead generation
How will this Quick Win help me and my business?
We all like to be nurtured, don’t we? Beginning with the loving embrace of our mothers, we seek that feeling of being fully supported and guided along an uncertain path. Today, as we carry powerful smartphones in our hands, we seek a similar kind of empathetic connection with the brands we shop and buy from. We want to feel understood and authentically connect with the companies that offer the products and services we seek. We want this to happen when and where we want.
Making this connection takes more ‘touches’ (company-customer interactions) than you might realize. According to recent research, it takes an average of six to eight touches to qualify a lead during the lead nurturing process. The number of touches varies by industry (more are required for B2B sales cycles and for higher-priced B2C products), but lead nurturing involves serving up careful crafted messaging and interactions over time; it’s not a ‘one-shot’ deal.
What will I learn and how is this Quick Win structured?
Here’s an overview of what we cover in this Quick Win:
- Why lead generation is perfectly suited to mobile
- Understanding consumer behaviour on mobile
- Mobile lead generation prerequisites
- Top-of-funnel lead generation tactics
- Landing page lead generation tactics
- Mobile lead generation user experience (UX) best practices
- Examples of who does mobile lead generation well
The examples will focus on business-to-business (B2B), but many of the approaches are relevant to lead generation for high-value B2C services and products.
