Creating and sharing Premium Content has become the de-facto way to attract new business customers and pique their interest in your company's services and products.

To build an effective new customer pipeline we followed a step by step process. (See our blog post on lead generation for details on the steps).
Our first step was to work with the experts at Terri Lynn Fundraising to discover the perfect topic that would attract new customers to their core services and product offerings. As you may know, Terri Lynn makes high-quality, delicious chocolates, nuts, and natural snacks.

This campaign automation included a landing page, a confirmation email, and a thank you follow-up for downloading the eBook. Respondents can also opt in to receiving Terri Lynn’s future blog-posts which expand on the fundraising tips established in the eBook.

Collaborating with the marketing team at Terri Lynn, we created social posts on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to promote the eBook offer.
We also used a combination of distribution tactics to bring the offer in front of more prospects, including:
The combined result grabs a lot of attention!
...and finally, everyone's favorite part of the process—watching the email list grow and hearing the phone ring with new inbound prospects.
