We want the right traffic coming to our site, so that we can nurture them into clients. As an inbound marketing company, we can write about anything and will most likely get picked up for search. However, what’s the point of traffic, if it isn’t the right traffic? We don’t want someone who is searching for a divorce lawyer landing on our site. It’s like fishing, if you want to catch a certain fish, you have to use the right bait.

Now that you have attracted the right visitor to your site, it’s time to qualify that visitor into a lead.

The closing stage is where we transform those qualified leads into customers. How do we accomplish this? We keep track of customer interactions on your site.

We create workflows dependent upon those interactions, further nurturing leads into customers.

Getting Customers to Refer New Prospects


Since our ultimate goal is to build ongoing, mutually beneficial business relationships, the sale of a product or service is merely the first step of this process.
