You think one platform is enough to make you through? If so, you may have to reconsider your marketing strategy. Take for instance, you have gathered quite a number of leads on Twitter, but that is not to say that those number also applies to other social media channels like Facebook and YouTube. Each platform has a different set of leads and criteria. Hence, you must use several channels in order for your content to get across many people.

Among other hundreds, thousands or millions of competitors, your marketing funnel must evolve in such a way that it will stick out like a diamond among a sea of rocks. Your marketing funnel has to offer a great user experience and must be able to create real and significant trust with your customers. Introduce your audience with relevant content according to their level of awareness and engagement. That is one of the keys to building a long-lasting business relationship based on trust.

Brand awareness as the invisible ROI

Since sales and leads are no longer enough to keep you going, you now have to direct your focus on spending money on your advertising on brand awareness. Although that is not to say the collecting new leads are no longer necessary, it simply means that you need to put emphasis on nurturing your customers with not only selling in your mind.
