4 Proven Ways to Accelerate Sales with Lead Generation in 2024

Conducting sales outreach calls has its time and place …

But when it comes to selling smarter in 2024, it’s pivotal to embrace AI technology, strategic lead magnets, and SEO to accelerate sales

Not only can these strategies help you attract aligned prospects, but they can also help you raise your website’s domain authority score.

That means higher rankings and more opportunities to flood your site with high-quality leads.

In this article, we’re covering four simple yet powerful lead generation strategies you can use in 2024 — along with brand examples — to inspire you. 

Let’s take a look.


1. Double down on SEO content to attract aligned leads to your website

There’s never been a more important time to create high-impact content on your website. 

In other words, it’s time to increase the amount of valuable blog posts, guides, and gated assets you publish to step up your search engine optimization game. 

Focus on writing content that solves your core audience’s pain points and is packed with value. Optimize for relevant keywords that have low competition and high search volume to boost your chances of ranking high.

Create a style guide and include E-E-A-T principles to guide your content team’s approach. 

If you’re unfamiliar with E-E-A-T, it’s an acronym Google created that stands for Experience, Expertise, Authoritativeness, and Trustworthiness. The more your content follows these principles, the better chance you have of positioning your brand as an industry expert.

It’s a simple generation tactic to boost conversion rates. 

Here are two real brand examples to inspire you:

2. Hook leads with interactive content

Audiences don’t just expect personalized experiences — they demand them. 

And what better way to give them what they want than by using interactive content, otherwise known as dynamic?

Interactive content uses artificial intelligence technology to guide visitors to specific solutions.

In other words…

You’ll never give a user a dull, everyday online experience.   

By offering visitors interactive content, you’ll tailor their experiences during every step of the sales process.

Get inspired by the following brands:

Strategy Summary

Tailor Brands uses an AI logo maker to captivate its audience with a dynamic content experience. This inspires users to finalize their branding products or (at least) sign up for Tailor Brand’s email list. 

Follow this generation method if you want to hook leads with epic experiences and generate relevant opt-ins. They’ll love the experience so much they’re bound to share it across social media platforms.

3. Add a discount pop-up on your website to quickly grab opt-ins and start sending them lead-nurturing emails

With high bounce rates remaining a consistent concern for website owners, brands need easy ways to grab online leads as quickly as possible. 

This is where a trusty digital marketing classic like a discount popup never fails.

If you’re looking to grab qualified leads, a discount pop-up can help you collect prospects who have a sincere interest in your brand. 

You can then leverage email marketing and lead nurturing campaigns to nudge them to conversion — and customer loyalty campaigns to build ongoing relationships with them after they convert.

*Pro-Tip: When a lead opts in, immediately send them a welcome email with the discount you promised. Giving them the option to quickly apply the discount is essential if they’re ready to buy. Otherwise, they may head to Amazon or another brand to buy what they need.

  • Special deals and holiday offers 

Strategy Summary

This helps the brand only target leads with a real shopping interest. This strategy helps HOJ generate most of its sales and increase its email deliverability rate.

4. Use automated guided selling strategies on your website to present tailored offers and encourage sales

Another way to create personalized shopping experiences and encourage users to stay on-page longer is with automated guided selling strategies. 

These include options such as: 

  • Interactive quizzes
  • Polls and feedback forms 
  • AI-guided chatbots  

With guided selling strategies, your website helps visitors find the exact solutions to their core problems. 

This can help you encourage them to go straight to check out — or, at the very least — provide contact information so you can follow up with them later.

And medication experience:

This helps the brand follow up with the user with their exact treatment options and continue building a relationship with them.

If the lead doesn’t convert, the brand adds them to a lead nurturing sequence unless they opt-out. 

Strategy Summary

Its guided selling quiz walks visitors through questions to understand the best treatment options for their wellness concerns.
