Turning Blog posts into Lead Gen Sites: B2B Blog Marketing

B2B case study - lead generation through lead magnets on blogs

I know what frustrations you are having.

You are probably an ambitious marketer, trying to push hard to get your campaign results to the next level.

You are running Facebook ads, Google ads or simply having a website presence with a blog. Sounds about right?

One of our customers had the exact same frustration.

They are B2B research company, quite active in digital marketing. A strong blog with unique content, but a weak  blog lead generation.

A website that gets more than 4000 visitors per month, original content from highly skilled researchers that has shown good engagement.

Where's the problem?

Guess what...

They forgot one crucial thing:

They didn't commit to master the lead generation game. It was simply never the aim to capture leads from blog marketing before.

It was a research-base for customers and prospects to find out about the company and their work.

However, building a website and writing great content ultimately won't be enough to help you grow.

You need an intention and goals how you define lead generation success and then execute.

And that's exactly what happened.

Long Story Short:

The business started using LeadGen forms on their top 10 performing blog posts.

The LeadGen forms link users to the next step of free offers, like research papers for email opt-in.

 

The Blog Lead Generation stats speak for themselves:

 

Results after the first 6 month

Now, these were the first 6 months (December 2019).

The recent 6 months look even better.

With the help of LeadGen form A/B testing and by implementing more forms into the blog, both conversion rate and leads increased even further.

The graphic below shows the development of the lead generation process and conversion rate at the point of campaign start, after 6 month (December 2019) and for the recent 6 months (April 2020).

Having a 9,8% conversion rate from a purely organic blog presence that is promoted by ZERO ad spend is extremely lucrative:
Almost 2000 leads captured just from forms embedded in their blog.
