B2B Email Marketing: 5 Top Tactics for Lead Generation

The use of an opt-in email form to gather leads is known as email lead generation. It all comes down to acquiring data on potential clients, such as their names and email address.

However, the lead capture form is not the end of an email lead creation plan. It also entails strategically cultivating leads so that they can become clients.

Organizations must have an email lead-generating strategist to expand their customer base and increase sales.

Your company may find it challenging to generate revenue and grow without a robust system for lead generation.

The ability to nurture your audience and take them to the ultimate conversion (from prospect to paying client) depends on having the correct strategy for attracting leads.

According to research, over 48% of marketers hail email marketing as the best method for creating internet leads.

A successful lead-generating plan will provide your company with other advantages, including increasing brand visibility, getting the right clients, and increasing revenue generation.

Below are some tools you could deploy to boost lead generation via email marketing.

1.    Webinar partnerships and collaborations

Generating leads through webinars doesn't necessarily require you to run your webinar.

You might participate in a webinar another company holds as a guest or co-host. The same holds for podcasting and publishing guest posts.

You may sometimes reach new audiences—thousands of new viewers and listeners—by adding value to webinars or branded podcasts.

Among those new audiences, there may be dozens of new potential clients.

Cross-collaboration is a crucial component of every media or event relationship.

Make sure you and your partner advertise the webinar, podcast, or article to your audiences on their most essential platforms as soon as it is out.

You can place your call to action there or do an email opt-in for your new audiences.

2.    Catchy subject lines

Thinking of original ways to pique interest or create a sense of urgency is crucial.

Depending on your line of work or industry, Emojis, bold type, italic font, and other design elements can all be used to bring readers' eyes to the subject line, which is the most crucial area of your email.

By raising open email rates and, eventually, customer conversion rates, this strategy can significantly impact the outcome of your email campaign.

But how do you ensure that the subject line is captivating enough to provoke a click-through by the prospect?

One sure way to do that is by having a catchy subject line.

For instance, if you created a news blog with a list of interested email subscribers, you should heavily emphasize recent news events within your niche to engage your readers.

However, if you want to stand out, you should leave the subscribers intrigued. An example of a captivating subject line that is newsworthy is ‘What made JP Morgan the worst investment of the century.’

3.    Lead scoring via automated email

Communicating effectively with the appropriate audience at the right moment is a crucial marketing component. You may accomplish that by using lead scoring to ensure you capture high-quality prospects.

Your leads can be sorted and prioritized with the aid of lead scoring. Lead scoring is ranking your prospects according to their perceived value to the organization.

It's a suitable method for getting quality prospects who are more likely to appreciate your communications.

In marketing, lead scoring may be achieved through email automation.

For instance, it is more probable that you will be able to convert a potential customer if you send them an email offering a discount on a product they have already seen on your website.

You can also capture high-quality prospects by displaying an exit-intent popup as the visitor leaves the product page if they aren't already subscribed to your list.

4.    Clear, concise emails

The layout of your emails is crucial for generating leads. Ensure that you prepare brief, to-the-point emails in advance.

Please note that the emails should be as clear and brief as possible. The message's essential point may be lost if there is too much text in the email.

The following are some excellent practices to adhere to when creating your emails:

First, ensure that you use simple, easy-to-read fonts. These will enable your prospect quickly skim through the message without missing its point.

Secondly, choose a visually appealing, clear-cut email template design. Sales development reps can help you with designing your email template.

Also, to make your email content easier to absorb for your audience, use well-spaced, succinct phrasing and highlight the most crucial information.

Your CTA (call-to-action) button needs to be strategically placed in the email to stick out. If the button is visible and easy to click, your readers will do so.

5.    Tie your email marketing to your social media.

Using social media to connect your followers with your website is fairly simple and easy.

Therefore, the first and simplest step would be setting up your business Facebook profile. Next to this critical step is to add a call-to-action, such as "Sign up" or "Subscribe."


Such measures make it easy for your business to onboard new prospects via social media.

Further to the above, being active in relevant social media sites such as LinkedIn and Facebook groups, responding to people's questions, and offering assistance is another excellent tactic with which you can enhance visibility.

When someone asks you a question about something, you know the answer to, offer to help by answering in three to four sentences.

You may elaborate on your suggestion by citing one of your blog posts that addresses a related subject.

Put your money on Instagram or any other social site if that is where your target demographic is most likely to be located.
