How to Create an Effective B2B Lead Magnet

B2B lead magnet

Everybody (and everybody’s mama) has a lead magnet these days. Once upon a time, coming across a lead magnet was similar to spotting a unicorn in the wild: Rare, magical, and definitely unexpected. But not anymore. Even if you haven’t created your own lead magnet yet, you can be sure that your competitor has.

This begs the question: If the marketplace is already saturated with lead magnets, what’s the point of creating your own?

Lead magnets are still the number one way to generate business. That’s because no marketing strategy immediately delivers value to your prospective customers quite like a lead magnet can. Not only do they attract new leads, but lead magnets also enable you to build your email list so that you can continue to nurture relationships with your prospective customers. No doubt about it, the lead magnet is an essential marketing tool for B2B businesses.

And even if your competitor has a lead magnet, they may not have an effective lead magnet. Not all lead magnets are created equal, and that’s especially true for wooing a B2B customer. Your lead magnet needs to answer the concerns of a B2B prospect which differ from B2C needs. Because B2B sales cycles are longer and more complex, the lead magnet that you create must focus on building relationships (instead of pushing products).

In this post, let’s discuss how to create a B2B lead generating incentive from scratch.

Creating Content for Each Milestone in Your Customer’s Journey

Content for Your Customer’s Journey

Have you heard of the term customer journey?

Also known as a sales funnel, the customer journey is a marketing term for describing the interactions that your customers experience with your brand. Customers never arrive ready to buy. Even if their journey with a brand is short, there’s still a journey. Ideally, you want their journey to be delightful, engaging, predictable, successful, and repeatable.

Mapping out your customer’s journey from awareness to decision (and beyond) is one of the most effective ways to ensure conversion. To map out that journey, you’ll need to identify key milestones that your customers should meet along the way. This is where content comes in.

Like a milestone, content serves as an information marker. Content provides essential information to your prospective customers and then directs them to the next logical step.

If you don’t plan the details of the journey and direct your prospective customers from one milestone to the next, you leave a lot to chance. Unfortunately, that means that some prospective customers will get lost along the way and not make it to the destination (i.e. purchasing your product).

In this post, we’ll help you plan out content for each milestone in your customer’s journey. Let’s get started.
