Zero-In On Better Prospects with Incentives

As a tool to encourage leads, incentives like white papers and infographics serve both companies and prospects well. If a person is willing to volunteer their contact information — sometimes including e-mail address and telephone number — it signals they value the gated content being offered and trust the company with their information.

“If you’re not currently using whitepapers to get the word out about your products or services, you’re missing out on these opportunities.” —Inc. Magazine

Likewise, if a business can package the right kind of information in a white paper, it tends to help qualify professionals as more valuable prospects for further communication. So, incentives that feature unique content can really help you zero-in on people who are more likely to buy from you.

“White papers are excellent lead-generation tools. There are many types of white papers, such as technical and government white papers.However, the white paper designed to generate a lead is unique.” —Pragmatic Marketing

Incentives like exclusive infographics or white papers can help dramatically boost landing page conversions.
