Small businesses struggle to build visibility online due to tight budgets and limited work force.
These five marketing platforms offer small businesses affordable lead generation and sales tools to provide them with some competitive advantage.
Small businesses need lots of support these days. With huge budgets being shifted online by large corporations, competing for the web presence has been harder and harder.
Luckily there are tools that offer great solutions for small businesses making their lives much easier and allowing them to be seen online.
One of the most pleasant discovering of this year, Leadfeeder has been my recommended tool in a couple of articles already. It is really simple to use, takes seconds to set up and works like a charm. I love the efficiency and simplicity of the tool.
Leadfeeder connects to yourGoogle Analytics and identifies companies behind your site visits. It saves all the data and scores each identified company visit based on how much they have interacted with your site (e.g. repeat visits, how many pages they have viewed before leaving etc.)
See which companies visited your site, which page they landed on, where they came from and how long they stayed
See the company contact info and employees (as well as how you are connected to them on LinkedIn)
Create filters to see company visits based on the source (for example, see company visits which were referred to your site from Twitter) to better customize your pitch
Receive regular email alerts with the most recent company visits prompting your immediate action (the sooner you pitch, the better chances are they will remember who you are).
Basically, Leadfeeder turns your site visitors into well qualified prospects opening lots of follow-up opportunities for you.
Hatchbuck is a solid CRM and marketing automation system for small businesses that makes it easy to nurture prospects and drive more sales. Some of the more useful features include:
