How podcasting can work wonders for your firm

Posted by Melinda Webster on Tue, Nov 17, 2015

Podcasting is a great way to shake up your content marketing and position your firm as a thought leader in your industry. Clients, current and prospective, won’t always have time to read your blog posts, but an audio option intensifies your reach by offering another media platform. Listeners can even absorb your podcasts on their commute to work. Strategy-wise, you should aim to create a strong podcast series that addresses relevant topics and provides valuable insights, to form part of a content marketing program that creates trust and generates excitement for your brand. It’s also an opportunity to showcase the people and ‘heart’ behind your firm.

What you need to know about nurturing leads

Posted by Melinda Webster on Sat, Nov 07, 2015

If nurturing leads is not at the top of your list, it’s time to make it a priority. Many firms invest a lot of time and money to generate leads, but it’s equally important to nurture that interest until prospective clients are ready to employ your services. We generate leads with the aim of obtaining information to ultimately increase business and client base, so once you have that information, it’s vital to use it wisely. Lead nurturing focuses on maintaining a relationship with a prospective client and nurturing them along their buyer’s journey, until they are ready to buy. To maintain a successful relationship and keep your lead interested, providing valuable, relevant information at the right time is key. Ultimately, you are aiming to create a strong brand persona to indicate that your firm is the best choice. When your lead is eventually ready to seek the services you offer, you have already put in the groundwork and guided them towards your firm.

Your lead nurturing program should be considered and tailored to your prospective clients’ needs. Take these five simple steps to get started:

Learn to map a prospect's journey

Posted by Melinda Webster on Thu, Jul 23, 2015

The majority of clients will attempt to connect with your professional services firm online during their search for information. Having the ability to map this journey and understand the natural progression of your client or prospect’s search is the key to converting them to a lead. The better understanding you have of your prospect’s needs, the more efficiently you can deliver the information they’re after, and at the right time. This in turn, will ensure their online experience in relation to your firm is a positive one – a vital component in terms of conversion.

There are a number of marketing automation tools to help you retrieve the data that will tell you what you need to know. It’s then up to you to analyse this data and optimise your content to suit your prospects’ needs.

You may be wondering, what is the prospect’s journey? The prospect in this case, is a prospective client. Their ‘journey’ is the research process they undergo before eventually making contact and potentially employing your services. Marketers often refer to this in the following three stages:
