Automate Marketing to establish long-lasting customer relationships

In business sales, just a very small amount of leads straight away convert into a deal.

Companies need at least a few follow-ups to establish trust with a prospect to achieve a sale. For B2B sales, 80% of deals close between the 5th and 12th contact with the potential customer.

Now, there are two essential questions every business needs to think about:

1) How can make the first 12 follow-ups as effective and efficient as possible?

2) What do I do with leads that never convert or turned cold?

Manage Different Leads With ActiveCampaign Marketing Automation

The first group are warm leads that are most likely the ones that convert to sales.

The second group are those types of leads that might not have the need right now, but could still be interested in future. It can also include previous customers that could potentially turn into a client again in future. Or it's simply those leads that have never take any action, but they are still on your list.

This is where marketing automation kicks in. It's the process of building automated follow-up systems to increase your chances to squeeze more deals from your leads and to establish long-lasting customer relationships.
