Industrial Lead Generation for Accelerating Pipelines
and Growing Sales
For manufacturers, distributors and engineering companies the primary goal of industrial marketing is customer acquisition and/or lead generation. This has not changed over the years that we’ve worked with our industrial clients.
Do you sell to engineers and buyers of industrial products and services? Do you sell through a network of distributors, manufacturer’s reps and other channel partners? If you answered yes and need to generate more high-quality sales leads, we can help.
The key to success is not quantity, but the quality of leads generated by industrial marketing; ones that have a better than average chance of turning into sales opportunities for you.
Evolution of industrial lead generation
The old ways of industrial lead generation have changed. Engineers and technical buyers do most of their research, evaluation and finally selecting a vendor very differently today than in the past. Complicating the process is the fact that the buyers do not usually go on a linear buying journey. There are many stakeholders involved in the buying decision, some of whom may never visit your website and/or meet your sales people. Your industrial lead generation needs to evolve to meet their needs. Otherwise you are going to struggle generating qualified leads that turn into sales opportunities. That is a virtual certainty.
