How Sales People Can Generate Leads Using A LinkedIn Group

By Darren Pierce on May 14, 2015 6:00:00 AM

"LinkedIn Groups can be lead generating machines, but most B2B sales people aren’t leveraging it to its full potential. Here is a proven step-by-step guide on how you can generate more leads by participating in these groups.1) Target An AudienceStart by identifying the type of people you want as leads. Use your data and analytics and your past experience to hone in on an audience of people that are most likely to engage with you. For this to be effective, you really have to nail down your target customer.2) Find The Most Active GroupLarge groups that are inactive, or small groups that are really active, might not churn out the best results. Ideally, you’ll want to find the largest, most active group out there. Keep an eye out for groups with more robots than humans and avoid them.3) Write Super Engaging ContentThis step is critical. You need to either revamp an old piece of content or write a completely new piece of content that you know will engage your target group. This has to be your absolute best. The title has to grab them and not let go until they read more. Take your content a step further and make it into a PDF white paper.4) Create An Opt-In Landing PageOnce you contribute to the group’s conversation and post about your super engaging content, you should take them to a squeeze page. Show the very beginning of the article on this page to hook them in, and then require users to trade their email address to view the full-length article.There you go—a new lead.Wash, rinse and repeat for best results (i.e., don’t be afraid to reach out to multiple LinkedIn groups or with different content to the same group).Do you work with ecommerce companies?
