Digital presence serves as a prime factor in brand building and SEO helps in increasing your website’s rankings and visibility to get onto the top of Google search results. Optimize your website or blog with high-value keywords, quality content and implement effective factors like backlinks, external or internal links, rich user experience to improve your SEO rankings. This serves in bringing more visitors that means more qualified leads and conversion rate.

#2. Remarketing with social ads

In digital marketing, remarketing campaigns are an essential strategy for converting visitors on your website to customers. It is following people around the web by serving ads to the visitors on your website or blogs on the platforms they use most, like Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, etc. Set up tagging on the audience across your site and start accumulating cookies – this will help you to show ads to those visitors.

#3. Attract customers with free trials

Everyone wants something free and SaaS companies are in a perfect position to offer free trials to customers, which can lead to an increase in new customers and recurring revenue. It also provides an opportunity to show off your customer service and support to targeted customers. Thus helping in getting more conversions with no additional effort. The end of the free trial period also offers you valuable feedback for your product.

#4. Advertising with PPC campaigns

PPC, also known as Pay-per-click or paid search, is an effective digital marketing tactic in terms of ROI (Return on investment). It is a paid form of digital advertising where you run advertisements and pay a fee for every user who clicks on your advertisement. The most common PPC platforms are Google Ads, Bing Ads, and Facebook Ads. The key to success with PPC is to know the search intent of your target buyers and drive enough clicks through to your website, landing page, or messenger box to turn users into customers.

#5. Referral marketing with rewards

Referral marketing is one of the effective SaaS marketing strategies for lead generation. When you tell customers how great your product is, they may not believe it, but when a friend or colleague speaks up about how great your product is, they trust what they hear. Making your happy customers recommend your product is all you need to do in referral marketing. To make referral programs come into action, you need to offer attractive rewards to customer referrals.
