Toronto, ON (PRWEB) October 01, 2013
Professional Services Marketing has traditionally been more focused around Branding and image and less so around direct marketing methods. With a heavy reliance on word of mouth referrals, and old methods of marketing like trade shows, conferences, and print advertising, service marketing roi has been slow to take off in the digital world. Product based industries have rapidly leveraged search, ppc and social as they lend themselves more easily to direct lead generation and more immediate sales.
Service firms have not seen as fast an increase in search volume for their targeted services, and due to the intangible nature of their services, even searches that are conducted, do not lead to rapid sales. The sales cycle of services is much longer and more complex. It requires a combination of relationship building, education and problem identification (since most firms are selling solutions to client issues through their service offerings).
With recent advances in technology, this is starting to change the game completely. Service firms can now illustrate conceptual ideas through high quality infographics. They can demonstrate their expertise through high definition client testimonial videos and case studies. They can show their authority and credibility by publishing content and placing it in front of their target audience where they interact on Facebook, LinkedIn and industry specific sites. All this combined with powerful marketing automation, which eliminates the need for large sales teams, enables service firms to drive high quality leads into their businesses for massive ROI.
“This entire combination of activities requires a solid knowledge of marketing software, online social interaction platforms, and conversion metrics," indicates a director at Jumpfactor. "While it may be daunting for service firms to handle this in house, expert service marketing agencies can package this group of activities into a powerful inbound marketing campaign to generate high quality leads for the business at incredible ROI. Our clients are already seeing tremendous increases in ROI, 50-70% lower lead costs, and incredible targeting opportunities.”
Hiring sales consultants and marketing resources can add up in cost easily. A starting budget of $8,000 to $25,000 per month is not uncommon for this type of setup which would involve new personnel and systems. Complete inbound marketing for Professional Services firms is being implemented by Jumpfactor for as little as $2800-$5000/ month and clients are seeing rapid results.
