How To Lower Your CPL With A Win Back Campaign

resubscribe win back campaign

The old adage “it costs less to keep a customer than convert a new one” is still true today. But what about a former customer who has unsubscribed from your list? You might think it would take more time and money to resubscribe and resell to them than to an unknown user. After all, they actively opted out of your list at some point! Perhaps they have a reason to dislike you or no longer need your product? On the other hand, an unknown user has no history with you, and no pre-conceived ideas to block their path to purchase. It sounds reasonable, but we’ve actually seen that previously unsubscribed users are easier to resubscribe and often more likely to convert than a new lead. They’re easier to target, too. You just need a strategic win back campaign.

Why You Need to Consider Your Lead Nurturing CPL

lead nurturing CPL

Ask any marketer running a lead generation campaign and they will probably agree that lowering Cost Per Lead, or CPL, is always on their mind. For some it’s the ultimate goal, while others may consider it secondary to quality leads and recognize that some leads simply cost more. Still, no one wants to pay more when they can get the same leads for less. How low your CPL can be is based on a variety of factors, including industry, size of desired audience, and targeting methodology. But many look at CPL as strictly a measurement of the cost to acquire leads, and nothing else. This can provide an incomplete picture of your lead generation efforts and prevent you from fully optimizing your campaign. To truly measure actual cost per lead, you need to develop a lead nurturing CPL that measures past acquisition and tracks performance.

Email is one of the most powerful tools at a marketer’s disposal. It’s a highly personal way of reaching people at home, and often quite literally in the palm of their hand. Depending on how robust your database is, you’ll also be able to include personal details, such as their name, location, last purchase, and other preferences. A lead nurturing email campaign can be especially powerful. A series of lead nurturing emails will pull leads through the funnel, using contextual clues, demographic data and retargeting to trigger emails based around intent and action. When executed correctly, a well-timed lead nurturing email can decrease the time to purchase and convert leads into customers.

Why Data Privacy Matters To Win Back Unsubscribers

win back unsubscribers

It’s a given to most businesses that they need to protect the data of their customers. But what about potential leads and unsubscribed users? You might not think of this data as “yours” to protect yet, but perhaps you should. Because you could be inadvertently making a very big privacy mistake if not. By applying the same data privacy policy to any data you interact with, you’ll ensure a compliant, clean database of leads and customers, as well as unsubscribed users. And that sets you up for a better, more cost-effective method of building your email list as you work to win back unsubscribers.

An Effective Lead Nurturing Guide to Boost Conversions

lead nurturing

Lead generation is an incredibly important part of any marketing strategy. Finding and converting new customers is the key to growing your business, no matter the industry. Yes, it typically costs less to keep and upsell existing customers, but there are only so many ways to create repeat purchases, particularly in longer lead time verticals. That’s why it’s so important to keep your pipeline full of new leads.lead nurturing

But a lead is only that: a lead. They have shown to be interested in what you have to offer, but until they make a purchase they are costing you money, not making it. That’s where lead nurturing comes in. Lead nurturing is the process of moving these leads through the funnel, converting them into customers through a systematic marketing program that quickly weeds out any unqualified leads and focuses on getting qualified leads to purchase your product or service.

What You Need To Know To Safeguard Lead Generation Data

lead generation data

Data privacy and use is a major concern for both companies and consumers these days. How lead generation data is collected, stored and used is especially important to advertisers who are paying or have paid for targeting that includes both first and third-party data. Data privacy regulations are taking effect across the globe, and tighter restrictions are becoming the norm. Overall, this is a good thing for everyone, but it takes some adjustments as we settle into the “new normal.”

The General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, has had a major impact on North American companies, despite being a European Union policy. But California has just passed similar legislation, and more states may follow soon. Marc Benioff has called for a national data privacy law, much like the EU has with GDPR, and we may not be far off. Taking extra steps to ensure you follow proper data privacy policies now will pay off in the long term.
