10 Future-Forward B2B Lead Generation Tactics

10 Future-Forward B2B Lead Generation Tactics

Below, we will dive into each of these in more detail, plus provide some additional strategies to help your business generate more leads in the coming year. 

1. Website Optimization and SEO

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) has been and continues to be one of the best lead generation channels for B2B businesses. Due to its ability to attract an organic, ready-to-buy audience. Hard to find a better quality lead than one that’s actively searching for brands, products, and services like yours.

In 2022, expect to invest more in your website optimization to increase your business’s rankings in search engines (namely, Google and Bing). Rise above your online competitors, drive organic traffic, and boost conversions on your website. This will involve identifying the best target keywords for your site, optimizing your website content, generating high-authority backlinks, and optimizing your business’s online listings.

2. Chatbots and AI

Forbes predicts that “brands that master two-way conversational marketing and commerce will also deploy chatbots and AI” in 2022. AI (artificial intelligence) is a powerful tool when it comes to facilitating realistic conversations with prospects, broadening your marketing reach, and generating new leads.

AI empowers marketers to create a customer experience that is “predictive, optimized, and personalized”. This means a more custom-tailored experience for customers and a streamlined lead generation process for your brand. The question is: Are you effectively harnessing the power of AI for your business? 

3. Content Marketing

You might have heard the phrase “Content is king” and this continues to be true year after year. Customers rely on brands to provide interesting, engaging information in the form of content. This makes content marketing one of the most effective tools for lead generation.

Content marketing encompasses everything from blog article creation to ebooks to videos. In any case, your job as a marketer is to create content that’s of interest to your audience, market this content across platforms, and include compelling calls-to-action to encourage fans to convert into paying customers/clients.

4. Paid Advertising

Pay-per-click (PPC) advertising platforms like Facebook Ads, Google Ads, Bing Ads, and Instagram Ads work to help B2B companies reach a highly targeted audience with click-worthy campaigns. While you have to pay to play, you often get better, faster results compared to organic methods. In fact, 50% of people arriving at a business’s website from a paid ad are more likely to buy than those who came from an organic link.

If you are relying on organic marketing tactics like SEO and social media but are struggling to see the results that you want, it may be time to invest in PPC. You will be able to set your targeting parameters, write compelling ad copy, direct users to a set landing page, and generate more leads for your business. 

5. Omnichannel Marketing

As the name implies, omnichannel marketing involves marketing your business across a variety of platforms so you’re able to engage users at multiple touchpoints. Rather than focusing your energy on a primary channel, this strategy involves drumming up exposure for your brand and staying top-of-mind with your audience.

For example, an omnichannel strategy might involve publishing an engaging blog article, sharing that article on social media, distributing that article to your email list, running a paid ad campaign to said article, and directing visitors to your article via a YouTube video. With this strategy, you can reach more users and keep your brand hyper-visible online.

6. Lead Generation Software

There is a mass market of lead generation tools out there, and more B2B companies are turning to these tools to streamline their lead generation efforts. Lead generation software can save your marketing team time, keep your marketing efforts organized, track progress, and much more.

Tools like Visitor Queue provide you with hands-off lead generation capabilities by capturing website visitors’ information, compiling this information into a centralized database, and automating lead follow-up. This means you can generate dozens or even hundreds of leads, passively, with little effort. 

7. Email List Generation

The manual methods for growing your email list take time. Hours that your team is better off dedicating to closing deals and providing service to existing customers. B2B email list providers can do the heavy lifting of email list growth for you by finding users who fit your target audience.

Not all email list providers are created equal, so we recommend checking out our linked guide above for a list of reputable providers. Then, you can simply subscribe to the service you want. Then generate a list of targeted email addresses, and follow up with users to generate more leads for your business.

8. Mobile Optimization

Starting in 2019, Google announced the use of mobile-first indexing to provide better search results to users. While many businesses were slow to adopt these changes, businesses in 2022 should expect to make mobile optimization a priority.

Why is mobile optimization important? More users than ever are accessing the internet from their mobile devices. This means that your branded apps and website should be mobile-friendly to provide the best experience for users. Make sure you have adopted a mobile-optimized web design. By use of optimized images, include mobile-friendly content, and make the mobile experience as fast and frictionless as possible. 

9. Guest Blog Posting

Posting articles on your website’s blog is a good way to generate organic traffic and leads. But how proactive are you about submitting guest posts on third-party sites? Doing so can make a huge difference when it comes to your website’s SEO (in terms of link building) and traffic (more exposure).

Finding guest posting opportunities is relatively easy. Simply reach out to websites in your industry and ask if they accept guest articles. You should reach out to sites that are already generating a lot of traffic or at least have a large social media following. That way, your guest articles can reach an even wider audience and drive more traffic (and leads) to your site. If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, take a look at this guide to help you get started,

10. Lead Generation Pages and Funnels

Sales funnel builders like ClickFunnels and the like often get a bad name (for their cult-like culture and spammy sales tactics). But the concept of lead generation pages is a powerful one. Essentially, these are pages dedicated to driving your lead generation efforts and converting new visitors into high-quality prospects.

First, you need to decide what traffic channels (paid, organic, direct, etc.) you are going to use to drive users to your site. Then, you can use lead page builders to create a high-converting landing page. You might also hire an expert copywriter to hone your message and lift conversions even more.

Many B2B businesses have dedicated landing pages for each type of service they offer. With these, they can create highly targeted campaigns. To each page, organize their leads, and direct their sales agents to follow up with the best offer. Plus, if your sales agents are equipped to handle the most common sales objections, you’re likely to see your sales skyrocket.
