The New Year is the perfect time to assess your business’ performance to date and to identify innovative ways to find and attract new clients. Below, we round up the best-in-class marketing tools that will help you identify and generate leads to take your business to the next level.
This tool is invaluable and can provide CRM, sales, and marketing support to help your business streamline its sales and lead processes and engage potential new clients. Blogging and content creation are two crucial ways in which businesses can find new customers. To be effective, content must be fresh, relevant, and high-quality; aim to post at least two new pieces of content a week to keep visitors coming back.
HubSpot can help with this: it features a range of tools to ensure your content is consistently high quality and has the best chance of ranking highly on search engine results pages; content is optimized as it’s created, and HubSpot facilitates the most effective use of SEO, too.
A writing tool is a perfect way to make sure that all content and copy you produce as part of your business processes -be that for marketing or recruiting – is polished and professional. The slickest looking website in the world, or the most informative newsletter of all time, can be undermined by the presence of typos or grammatical inaccuracies. For potential new clients, this content is likely to serve as an introduction to your business, and first impressions are vital.

The latter is a particularly powerful tool: use the position tracker to see how your business ranks in terms of keywords in comparison to rival sites and how your site ranks in relation to the top one hundred Google organic or paid results, too. This information is vital in allowing you to make changes that could see your site flying up to the top of the rankings list, meaning that it’ll be seen by an exponentially wider audience.
