Lead generation is the backbone of any successful marketing strategy. It’s essential. And B2B marketers know that inbound marketing builds businesses, and generates three times more leads per dollar spent than traditional methods (DemandMetric, 2019).
Yet, despite its obvious impact, 61% of marketers said generating traffic and leads is their top challenge. Plus, the current economic uncertainty may feel like a stumbling block, as fewer companies seem willing to seriously invest in marketing.
A 2020 marketing report by the Influencer Marketing Hub revealed that only 25% of companies in the United States will increase their spend for marketing endeavors in general. And a minority — just 41% — of the American businesses surveyed were willing to increase their ad spend.
Probably, your leads are more risk-averse than usual at present. But while many marketing budgets may face cuts, the digital landscape continues to grow.
