Are you getting a handful of visitors to your site, but having a hard time converting those visitors into leads? Maybe it’s time to revisit the structure of your call-to-action (CTA) buttons.

Isn’t it crazy how the smallest things can have such large impact on your business? In this particular case those small things we’re going to discuss are your calls-to-action (CTAs) that you use in and around your site to generate leads online.
So you want to generate some leads on your website, do you? Well, do you have any forms for people to fill out so you can convert them from visitors into leads? Do you have any landing pages with content offers, downloadable guides, or even consultation requests?

Return on investment (ROI) is a very popular metric because of its versatility and simplicity. Obviously, a positive ROI means an individual or business invested their money wisely and saw a return greater than the original investment. Alternatively, a negative ROI signifies a lower return than the original investment. For certain investments (not necessarily monetary), ROI is very easy to measure; you can see it, feel it, hear it, smell it, or even taste it. But how do you measure ROI for complex business efforts such as email marketing? HubSpot’s marketing automation software makes it pretty easy.
Are you driving traffic to your website? My guess would be yes, but the real question is what are you doing with those visitors once they land on your homepage (or any page on your site for that matter)? Do you want them to arrive, poke around, soak up a few tidbits about your company, and call it a day? Or would you rather be generating quality leads or prospects from your website [which you probably spent a pretty penny on] that you're able to call up, send an email to, or nurture down the sales funnel to make that sale? Great! Then this article is for you.
Lead nurturing is not an end goal but rather an ongoing tactic that allows you to leverage content to more deeply connect with your target audience, and by doing so, to more efficiently convert leads into customers and brand advocates. Sounds pretty great, right? It also has the benefit of being true.
After embracing inbound marketing methodology within your organization, it is important to understand how to interact with your leads. Many companies are pouring resources into creating an abundance of marketing materials that will influence conversions and generate leads, all the while not knowing what to do with the leads they’ve generated. What does your company do to nurture leads? Maybe a monthly newsletter? Or maybe the leads are automatically pushed through to the sales team with the belief that they are ready to purchase your product/service? Whatever the case, I’m here to share that you could be doing it better.
