Social media can be an excellent channel for engaging with potential customers. Used intentionally, it can also facilitate lead generation.

1. A Robust Content Strategy

Companies can get 4.5 times more leads by publishing 16 posts per month instead of 4, and 47% of B2B buyers pay close notice to content and will read at least 3-5 pieces before they make a decision to buy (or not), a HubSpot study has found.
