Being a marketer myself it becomes difficult sometimes to use the same Linkedin channel for prospecting. So I wanted to understand what everyone is leveraging for prospecting and lead generation? Would love to know if there is a way for me to leverage any other social media channel for B2B leads.

@nik_hazell Firstly I am trying to determine my user, from what spheres they are, for instance, from the banking field. After I am trying to find groups with bankers and people who are connected with finance, message to the admin of this group and ask him the permission to make a post in his group with useful info/product for his audience. I am not sure that this is the best way, nevertheless, it will give you more PR. Good luck!

@julia_demyanchuk Ok great, that makes sense. I'll reach out to the admins - I think that's probably the most obvious step I'm missing! Thanks, will give it a shot!

I personally prefer customized cold emails for lead generation, if the prospect is important and does not reply on emails. I would talk to their customer support team and ask them to connect me. Works like a charm :)

@merakith Wow! that's a unique way to reach them. Does it get awkward?

@ronak_kadhi it depends on what you are offering. I would use this approach when I have something great to offer them.

It all depends on the target audience - before generating leads, I always think about where the people/companies I'm trying to reach are. For example, let's assume my target audience is e-commerce. I know that e-commerce sites are often based on technologies like Magento. So I use a tool like SimilarTech, where I filter companies based on Magento. Then I choose those that look interesting to me and start looking for information on who the company's decision-maker is. I look for such information on Google, the given website, or the already mentioned LinkedIn Sales Navigator. The next step is to get the emails and social profiles of these people to contact them. When it comes to the contact itself, we have our tool for this (Woodpecker.co), so I prepare a personalized campaign to encourage people to talk to me.

@kapatalas It seems like the "Where" is much harder than the "How" - and maybe even more important. Once you know you're looking in the right place, there's an element of "hustling harder" that can make up for an inefficient approach. But, until you find the right place, there's no point!
Share
@kapatalas Thats a great insight, will definitely focus more on "Where"

We are a B2B play. The best is the combination of Crunch-base and something like Rocketreach or Lusha !! You can get leads based on filters and then get email Ids using one of the tools mentioned !!

BTW would you be interested to get a daily list of companies that're hiring? You can filter by keywords and locations. I'm working on a recruiting startup https://tarta.ai Tarta.ai and have access to this kind of data.

Twitter turns out to be a great way to generate leads. We found that it takes time to boost the lead generation process through a social media platform. But if you take time and follow the right measures, in the long run you can capture more leads for your business successfully.

Personally, I’ve been using a mix and match of different tools and strategies for lead generation, and I’ve got to say, it’s more effective than just sticking to one. For starters, I’ve been writing some gated content like blogs, guides, and reports to publish on my Facebook page, which attracts more visitors for leads and brings them to my website eventually. As far as the website is concerned, I also optimize my landing pages from time to time in order to ensure maximum lead generation. It’s one of the things that you should definitely do for noticeable results. Quizzes are also one of the most effective ways that I have been using to generate more leads. I use an online quiz maker tool called ProProfs Quiz Maker (https://www.proprofs.com/quiz-sc...) that allows me to create engaging “personality” and “scored” quizzes to embed on my Facebook page and generate more engagement. You can easily attach a lead form at the end of every quiz using this tool, and your quiz takers will generally be more intrigued in leaving their contact information. Finally, I’d like to add that if LinkedIn isn’t generating good results, then you should definitely exploit the capabilities of Facebook and your website. Also, make sure you get an online quiz maker tool like the one ProProfs has to offer, as it will automate your entire lead generation process and generate substantial leads in no time.
