B2B Website Checklist: 6 Steps to Generate Leads

By Lee Chapman | VP Account Services

Your website serves many roles in your organization, from your company storefront, to a customer support resource, to a recruiting center, to name a few. From a marketing standpoint, it is the hub of all your activities and the main vehicle for generating leads and creating your online branding experience. It has the unique ability to serve as both an outbound and inbound marketing tool; as a way to communicate your brand image to your audiences; and as a response mechanism for prospects that are interested in learning more about your company, products and services. You can think of your website as a valuable, 24-hour-a-day employee in your marketing organization. As such, it’s always on, always ready to communicate your brand value, and always focused on generating leads.  

In order to fully maximize the investment in your website, there are 6 steps you should take to ensure it's set up to generate the leads you need to hit your targets and deliver ROI to your business:
