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.

An Effective Lead Nurturing Guide to Boost Conversions

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.

Opt-In Advertising,

Single vs. Double Opt-In Advertising: What’s The Difference?

opt-in advertising

Opt-in advertising allows users to quickly join your email list, or “opt-in” to email marketing from you. It’s a great way to build a lead funnel. And the best part is you can gather leads without landing pages using either single or double opt-in advertising. Ad units display on the websites your potential customers are already browsing and allow them to submit their email address, phone number or other contact information right within the ad. They don’t have to navigate away from the site they wanted to view, so you’re not paying for costly web traffic or landing page development.

opt-in advertising

You specify the form fields available to the user to provide contact information, choosing what’s most important for your lead generation campaign. You can also choose single opt-in, where their email is subscribed immediately, or double opt-in, where an initial confirmation email ensures they meant to sign up and safeguards the quality of your list. So which is right for you? Read on to find out!

New Lead Sources Worth Exploring

When you think about lead generation, the first thing that comes to mind is probably a campaign-specific landing page. For years this was the standard: marketers used lead generation ads to drive paid traffic to a custom landing page on their site, where they could introduce the business, explain the offer and gather customer information. And it worked—for awhile. But a rapidly growing internet meant more websites competing for traffic. Keywords gre more competitive and increasingly expensive. The need for generating leads without landing pages is obvious, but how do you go about it? Here are a few ways to generate leads without landing pages.
