Do You Pay For A “Highly-Qualified” Lead?
A few months ago, I received an email asking for my point of view in a discussion about paying for highly-qualified leads.
Right now we are discussing the preliminary results of a group survey which shows that despite the fact over 55% of respondents said they get more than $10,000 in revenue from the average customer in a given year, only 8.8% of the survey participants felt that they would be willing to pay $500 for a super-duper qualified B2B lead.
A question then is prompted to me: "Why do you think so few companies are willing to pay $500 for a highly qualified lead? Have leads simply become passé? Do few companies even know what to do with good leads to begin with?"
Revisiting the Phrase “Click Here”
It's 2011.  There is a new day and age in technology, in how we do business, and in how we interact with others on a macro and micro scale.  Yet, here we are, recycling the same old marketing schemes over and over again. I'm referring to the phrase "Click Here."  I wrote a marketing article a couple of years ago emphasizing our need to back away from our usage of that 1999 phrase and be more proactive in our call-to-action messages and methods of cultivating customer relationships. Sadly, that proactive emphasis has gone to deaf ears, as I still continue to see such unattractive and non-engaging verbiage in many sites and many campaigns.
Should SMM be at the forefront of your marketing?

The continued rise of social mediums created more increased exposure for all brand sizes, small to large, to participate in an "equal" platform.  As more and more companies and brands get on the social media "craze," this playing field is a lot more than just your ordinary marketing avenue.  There are tremendous possibilities to gain by initiating in social media marketing (SMM).  While increased brand exposure and recognition is possibly the first and foremost for most businesses, there are other similar benefits that your company can experience that would help the growth and stability of your company.  These are in no particular order:

And the last shall go first
Being in marketing, I know specifically first-hand that when a company goes under, or when it is trying to cut costs, the marketing department is "usually" (and I say this loosely) the first of several departments to go first. I understand some of the reasons why, and I know that some of those reasons that I have gathered from my former employers and managers are that companies need to keep the workers that do between 65-80% of the work for said companies to stay afloat. That I definitely understand and do know that work has to be done to be able to generate as much positive ROI as possible. I also don't want to assume that ALL marketing employees will be let go during a company crisis. But let's take this reason to a whole new level, shall we?
