Why Lead Generation Is The Most Important Part Of Your Marketing Strategy

lead generation

There are many facets to online marketing: banner ads, search engine optimization, social media marketing, email, and more. But without lead generation, your marketing will never be as effective as it could be. Lead generation fills your pipeline with qualified leads, giving you an interested group to utilize other marketing tactics on. It also provides a solid base to build lookalike models on: these leads have opted in because they are interested in what you have to offer, so it stands to reason that similar people would be interested, too.

The Pros and Cons of Lead Generation Landing Pages

For years, the gold standard of lead generation has been landing pages.

Enter opt-in advertising, an off-site method of generating leads without landing pages through trusted third-party sites. Still using landing pages for lead generation? You’re not alone. Read on for the pros and cons of dedicated lead generation landing pages, and see if opt-in advertising could be right for you.

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.
