Many companies view their web site as a necessary cost of doing business rather than an opportunity to attract a new audience and gain new customers. Here are tips to transform your site into an effective marketing tool.
Have you ever gone to a website, left without purchasing anything, only to be followed around by that company’s advertisements all around the web? These are retargeting ads, and even if you haven’t heard of them there’s a good chance that you’ve been targeted by them in the past. This channel is incredibly efficient for getting customers back to your site to make a purchase or a lead.
I could definitely recommend a few tools, but ultimately it depends on what you’re looking for, and what works for you might not work for another marketer. So, for a change, I thought I’d list the main tools I use as a digital marketer and community manager. Now, I’m not saying you should go and get all of these tools (although I’m sure you’ll be familiar with a lot of them already). However, I do hope this serves as a good steering, a guideline of what sort of tools to consider.
We frequently think “content, inbound, or bust.” The marketing community is polarized—on the one side of the spectrum are the pushy folks who are driving direct sales. On the other side? The content marketers who never, ever want to sell.

It helps you lock users that you want to keep following no matter what (such as ones who have recently mentioned you) and filter the people you are following to see which users are not following you, do not have pictures, have particular keywords in their bio / website / recent tweets, have not tweeted in 90 days, and so on. It is a great way to get your Twitter following back under control.

Lead nurturing is the process of sending steady, progressive communications to “nurture” your leads from new and curious, to ready to buy. Your strategy makes it smart; marketing automation makes it easy, consistent, and effective. Set your Act-On platform to deliver the right information to each prospect at the right stage of the funnel, and pass the lead to sales automatically when they signal they’re ready to buy. Act-On makes it easy to replicate your most successful programs in automated, tailored nurturing campaigns.
You can create a Google remarketing ad in MailChimp with just a few clicks, but it’s important to come up with a plan for your content and budget before you get started. Your copy should give shoppers a call to action, not merely a description of what you’re selling. The images you choose need to match your brand and fit the ad space, too. And you’ll need to set a budget that helps you maximize conversions. There’s a lot to consider, so we’ve rounded up a few of our users’ most successful retargeting ads to serve as inspiration.
