Marketing automation is useless. A bold statement for one of the most talked about topics within the marketing world, I am sure you will agree, but it is true; marketing automation is useless unless you have a host of leads already.

So how do you convert leads into paying customers?
Step 1 is to set up lead nurturing programmes. Visitors initially convert to leads on your website by providing their details by filling out a form to receive content they perceive as valuable. For example, a white paper, access to video content, or to register for a webinar.
When the form is submitted your sales team will be able to see exactly what kind of information they are interested in. Providing additional information to these leads within a week of their initial conversion increases final sales conversion rates.
You can then send them specific information that you know they are interested in via automated emails using Hubspot’s lead generation software tools. This will move your suspect further down the sales funnel, and keeps your business at the forefront of their mind, while providing additional valuable data for your sales team.
