What is B2B lead generation?

B2B lead generation is the lifeblood of the modern sales process. It can be defined as the initiation of consumer interest within a business to business environment.

Lead Generation campaigns require a company to understand the needs of its audience and craft messaging that engages prospects at every stage of the user journey. The marketing messages and sales pitch will vary for initiators, influencers and gatekeepers as companies endeavour to qualify a prospective customer into a lead.

There are many strategies and techniques to engage potential customers broadly categorised as either “Outbound” or “Inbound”, i.e prospects finding you (Inbound) or your sales team proactively ‘hunting’ for them (Outbound). Both approaches rely on similar guiding principles and ultimately have the same goal: to create revenue opportunities that convert into paying customers.

Why should you consider outsourcing your B2B lead generation?

Companies who want to increase the quality and quantity of leads while reducing the cost of acquisition may want to consider outsourcing their marketing to an external specialist.

Partnering with a high-performing digital marketing agency has many benefits. Choosing the right partner can eliminate the cost of hiring, training and managing an in-house team. There is also the added benefit of gaining access to a fully-integrated workforce who can fulfil the end-to-end lead generation process.

Companies that want to focus on their core business can reduce risk and shorten time-to-market at the same time as having access to premium marketing tools and a team of experienced professionals with a proven track record.
