We hear it all the time: “Why should I invest into the sales process?” While we could go on all day about the benefits of using lead generation to increase sales, today we’re going to focus one of the most important benefits of lead generation – building brand awareness. Why focus on brand awareness? While it doesn’t involve immediately making a sale, it is a step towards building a loyal relationship with consumers – something that is just as important making an actual sale.
Why place such a high importance on building this relationship? Let me give you an example. Through your lead generation efforts, you make contact with a consumer that has never heard of you before. By explaining the benefits of the product, you get to learn about the consumer’s needs. If they need your product or service at the moment, that’s awesome – you just made a sale! What if they don’t? You’re still in luck –even though they didn’t buy now, they know your brand and all the good reasons to choose you over the competition when the timing is right. Whether it is two days or two years after your initial contact, consumers are now aware of your brand and all it has to offer.
Just like you can’t get to know your crush without speaking to them first, consumers may not know you exist without you reaching out to them to establish a connection. This is why lead generation is important – it is the first step in the relationship building process. If they like you enough, they may figuratively “put a ring on it” and become committed to your company.
