Buyers won’t come to the phone
Traditional lead generation strategies like telemarketing can be expensive over time. Telemarketing leads can make great customers, but the sales funnel is significantly longer than leads gained through lead nurturing. Wouldn’t you rather send a periodic e-Newsletter to the folks who asked to be on your mailing list? It’s a click of a button to reach a large number of people you’re giving them information that is useful, something they asked for.
The definition of nurture is to “to promote and sustain the growth and development of”… something, in this case your potential customers. By providing potential customers with timely, useful information that can help in the growth and development of their business, you are nurturing. Over time, this useful information you provide establishes you as the professional. These potential clients have built trust in you and the services you provide, even if they may not be buying what your selling at the time. Peppering the leads you generate with timely, helpful information in a steady stream, but not burying them with too much information, narrows the sales funnel to the point that when the time comes to buy the products your selling, they will likely come to you to make their purchase.
