Definition - What does Lead Nurturing mean?
Lead nurturing is a marketing term for building relationships with potential clients even if they are not currently looking to buy a product or service. Lead nurturing is intended to raise a company’s profile in the potential client’s eyes, thus making it more likely that the client will go with the company’s product or service when it is time to buy. Lead nurturing is one part of the larger marketing process.
Techopedia explains Lead Nurturing
Lead nurturing starts once a company has a potential client’s contact information and can personalize communication with him or her. Lead nurturing may simply be an occasional email letting the client know about updates to a product or service, changes in price and so on. More complex lead nurturing campaigns involve educating the client in the advantages of a particular product or service and designing personalized pitches to encourage the client to buy sooner rather than later. Lead nurturing is a traditional marketing practice, but it has taken on new meaning now that companies can create communities around their products using social media.
