The fact is that today’s buyer has changed.
So, you should change the way you sell.
And, it doesn’t happen overnight.
If you’re a small or medium sized business who is looking for answers, you may find the following case study interesting. This case study outlines how a small construction company “steadily” grew their business is less than two years. You will see how they received results like:
Increased Organic Traffic by 842% in 6 months
Generated a total of 397 qualified leads in 15 months
Added an additional $1,715,000 in revenue through 21 new projects in 15 months
Industry: Construction & Remodeling
Company Size: 10
Challenge: This construction company was struggling with getting qualified leads from their website. They had a website, but it was not generating any sales. In addition, the more traditional methods of advertising were not working as well as they had in the past.
Realization: The owner of the company realized that his customers were now online and he needed a reliable and measurable way to reach these leads. He had a website but it wasn’t really doing much to help generate business. He tried Pay Per Click – but still nothing.
Solution: The client decided to try Inbound Marketing; A new customer centered marketing technique that has been proven to be successful when implemented properly.
(Note: For those NEW to Inbound Marketing – we will provide some basics here)
With Inbound Marketing – the methodology behind it is crucial to understand. (Moving forward we will explore the methodology in this series of blogs).
Simply put – the Inbound concept is this:
Create Compelling Useful Content – Get Traffic – Convert Traffic to Prospects –
Analyze What’s Working – Repeat
After analyzing the client target market, doing SEO and Keyword Research – several Inbound Techniques were implemented – such as:
Offers were Created so that prospects could respond online
A blog was added – so that the website provided a “resource” for prospects looking for remodeling
Landing Pages Were created that were customized to align with the “keyword search” used by the prospect
Within the first 6 months the traffic to the website increased dramatically. Not only did traffic increase – but the website landing pages allowed this web traffic to “convert” into real leads by making the website “interactive”.
