To grow your business, you'll need a strong understanding of the customer life cycle and understand how to create and nurture leads into customers.

5 B2B Growth Marketing Hacks You Can Test Today
To determine the best growth hacks for your business, we first need to establish some baseline knowledge on the subject. What are growth hacks and growth marketing, and why do you need to understand the difference?
4. Customization and Personalization
How often have you received (or sent) an email that starts with a generic greeting, then proceeds to vaguely tell you why you are an excellent fit for the program and how to sign up?
No one reads those emails.
If you want to send emails that convert, you'll need to keep several things in mind:
Use your real name; use their real name
- People are more likely to trust an email from a natural person rather than a generic company sign-off.
- Using their name also increases feelings of trust. A lead is more likely to open an email that appears personalized rather than one that looks like a mass mailer.
Mention their business in emails and hit their pain points in the business
- Find out what they need in their business and hit those pain points in your message. An excellent way to do this is by reaching out to team members in the company, looking at their socials to see gaps that they may have in their thinking and business model, or simply looking through what they have available to the public and searching for things that you could help them elevate.
- Show your lead what you provide and how you can help resolve their issues in their business.
Use platforms such as LinkedIn to gather data about potential clients
- Utilize social platforms to research your prospective customers' companies. Use that information to create messages that cater to their needs and reach them personally.
An example of a brand that goes above and beyond when it comes to personalization is Trip Advisor.
Trip Advisor can track your online behavior to see what you have been searching for on their website, whether you have taken any trips through them, and whether there are deals on the locations you search for. This practice allows them to create personalized messages for upcoming trip deals and new sites you may love and show you reviews for those places.
You have so many tools at your reach to ensure that you stay in the old email habits of the past. Make it personal, hit their pain points and needs, and talk to them as if you were talking to a friend.
