Blogs for Lead Generation?

Discussion in 'General Marketing' started by jrbiz, May 3, 2016.

    Hi,
    SEMrush
    Has anyone had any recent experience with buying "placements" with blogs for lead gen purposes? This is not about SEO, but rather paying bloggers of relevant blogs to mention my company or product in the hopes that it drives prospects to the business. I am wondering if it is a worthwhile marketing channel these days.

    Along these lines, are you aware of any marketing networks that have blog placements as an option?

    JR

    If you want the best results, then you
    should find the most suitable places.

    The marketing networks are too
    crude instruments for this purpose.

    So, you are suggesting that I have my marketing team find relevant blogs and approach them individually?

    Also, any thoughts as to whether this is an effective vehicle for lead generation?

    It's still an effective way in my opinion.

    Can I ask what your niche is?

    I am involved with several B2B companies. One niche is in the market research industry; another is in the mobile battery industry (for fleets); another is the IT networking industry.
