53% of B2B buyers said they would prefer to gather information online and not have to talk to sales (Forrester Research, Inc). The unpleasant truth is, most people don't want to talk to you.

Gaetano DiNardi's session at the Inbound 2018 conference teaches important lessons in leveraging technology to build a modern sales process to maximise results.

Here's what you can apply from Gaetano's lead generation tips and tricks.

Adapting To How Buyers Want to Be Sold To

The top B2B lead generation channels are, in order:

  • Email
  • Live events
  • SEO
  • Content marketing

These are the areas where you want to focus your lead growth. Different types of content align to different stages of the buyer's journey, so think carefully about your choice of campaign material.


Tapping Into Webinars and Podcasts

Gaetano recommends the following tools for podcasting:

  • Libsyn - digital distribution
  • WordPress - content management
  • Microphone - blue yeti pro
  • Skype/Zencastr - recording
  • Canva/Upwork - design

...and the following tools for webinars:

  • Crowdcast/Zoom/GoToWebinar - digital distribution
  • WordPress - content management
  • Instapage/Leadpages
  • Canva/Upwork - design


Creating Content To Remain Top Of Mind With Prospects

Tip #1: Due to the RankBrain Google algorithm, optimum SEO is tailored for shorter Q&A style content. This is because Google now ranks content based on searcher intent, and answering questions can help you to secure featured snippets. Ensure that your content answers questions that are being asked in your niche.

Tip #2: Gaetano recommends linking a table of contents to every lengthy piece of content that you produce. This helps Google to crawl your information and decipher what kinds of questions your content answers.

Tip #3: Re-purpose your content to create articles, blog posts, images, eBooks, presentations, social media posts and email teasers. Don't waste your resources. This will save you time and money.


Social Media Practices For Finding and Engaging With Leads

Sometimes, social media status updates are underrated. Many think that writing articles is more important. But status updates are conversational and easy to digest. They spark engagement and debate. Likes and comments create velocity that fuel the fire of conversation.

Here's how you can spark conversations:

  • Take content that you find online and summarise key points in social media posts.
  • Answer questions on Quora and then summarise your answers in social media posts.
  • Summarise your own blog content in social media posts.


Simple Techniques For Advancing Sales Conversations

Consider the following questions to ensure that your content meets your prospects' needs:

  • What problems are happening to your industry that you can shed light on?
  • What skills are crucial to succeed in your industry?
  • What does the future of your industry look like?
  • What advice would you give your 21-year-old self?
  • What cutting edge tools can you provide insight on?


To Include

To create compelling content that generates leads, fill your content with the following

  • Storytelling with an emotional hook
  • Unique research
  • Data-driven research
  • Question based content
  • Thought-provoking content
  • Downloadable content
