How to Nurture Leads from Twitter - ClickZ | #TheMarketingAutomationAlert

How to Nurture Leads from Twitter - ClickZ | #TheMarketingAutomationAlert | Social Media Trends |

Intermediate/ Condensed...


A few weeks ago, we tackled acquisition by looking at how a new product called Twitter Lead Gen Cards was able to drive spectacular lead generation results, including:

• 996 percent increase in leads acquired
• 500 percent decrease in cost-per-lead
• 300 percent decrease in cost-per-engagement


Three must-dos in order to turn Twitter Lead Gen Card acquisition into scalable, successful nurture:


1. Research Ruthlessly.

Don't even think about nurture until you've identified why you were able to acquire the lead in the first place. In other words, what prompted the user to give you that first click? In addition, remember what fundamentally makes Lead Gen Cards work in the first place: a dramatically simplified user experience. Rather than having to find a tweet, click on a link, go to a landing page and fill out a form, users are now able to get what they want with a single click, without ever leaving the tweet itself. That's a level of speed, convenience and clarity users aren't able to find anywhere else in social, and it's a huge factor in driving increased conversions.


2. Optimize the User Experience, Not the Content.

As a marketer, you capture three pieces of data whenever someone clicks on a Lead Gen Card: the user's handle, their name and the email associated with their Twitter account. The limitation here is that this email is often a personal or junk address; it's not enough to qualify a lead in a B2B lead scoring system. Yet smart nurture campaigns can help you quickly complete the missing pieces of your user's persona. The key here is to avoid compromising that positive user experience. Granted, you'll need to test and research multiple follow-up offers to identify the optimal mix of timing, assets and tone, but resist the urge to deviate from the foundation established by that first click. Be relevant and deliver value with each touch, and the results will follow.


3. Map Out the Customer Journey in Advance.

The biggest nurture mistake social marketers make is passively waiting for an acquired lead to mature into a sales opportunity. Social leads, however, are not the same as leads from other channels. They take longer to develop.  Clearly articulate the user journey you want a social lead to take. Define a user's ideal ending point (where you eventually want them to end up) and create a path from the first click, filled with relevant follow-up offers, opportunities to capture additional information and positive touch points.

Successful Facebook Marketing

Successful Facebook Marketing | Social Media Trends |

The first thing you need to understand before you think of marketing on Facebook is the unique opportunities it offers and the basic difference between this and other media. Like you would never use a radio commercial for a TV ad, you cannot market on Facebook, the way you use other media for advertising.


Facebook is not a platform for ‘hard sell’People perceive Facebook as a platform when they share their stories, jokes, videos and generally relax. Therefore to appeal to this group you too have to join in their conversations rather than act like an outsider who has come to sell something aggressively...
