What is online lead generation?

A lead is a prospect who has engaged with your business and shown they’re interested in your offerings. In the online world, you generate leads by convincing prospects to visit your landing page and provide some information. 

A landing page is an independent page on your website with a call to action (CTA) that encourages the reader to request further information on a product or service. Lead-generating landing pages may ask the reader to subscribe to an email list or newsletter.

After building a landing page, it’s time to direct your prospects to it. You can use organic and paid digital marketing strategies to garner landing page traffic. 

Organic lead generation strategies

Organic traffic describes clicks you receive from prospects who found your site through their own browsing. These strategies will make your digital content more visible to prospects as they search for home security systems. 


Search engine optimization (SEO) helps search engine users find your website by improving its results page ranking. You can optimize your site for search engines like Google through its content and design elements. 

Build your pages to convince the search engine that your page has the information users want to find and presents it effectively. 

Some common SEO strategies include:

Content marketing

With content marketing, you’ll create web content that answers questions from prospects at any buying stage. This strategy — which doubles conversion rates —  drives traffic, builds awareness, and establishes credibility. You can target prospects in different segments through:

  • Videos
  • Blogs
  • Infographics
  • Images

Write an article about the best ways to prevent home theft so early prospects begin to consider home security systems as an option. Create an engaging infographic that displays your security system’s unique advantages so those closer to purchasing know that yours is their best option.

In any case, include a CTA that links to your landing page so that you can convert your readers into leads. 

Paid lead generation tactics

Another way to put your landing pages in front of more prospects is to pay for ad placements. There are two primary forms of paid advertising on the internet — pay-per-click (PPC) advertising and social media advertising. 


PPC advertising is the fast track to the top of a search engine results page (SERP). PPC ads look just like any other Google listing. Each PPC ad features a title, URL, and meta description. The main optical difference is that a PPC listing will have an “Ad” disclaimer to the left of the URL. 

So, what differentiates PPC ads from organic listings? A PPC ad is at the top of the page because you’ve paid for it to be there. 

When you build a PPC campaign, you’ll bid a certain amount of money that you’re willing to pay for every click the ad receives. Google will rank your ad against other companies targeting the same keywords according to the page’s quality score and the amount you bid.

You’ll see the best results by using a PPC ad generator tool or choosing a PPC package with a digital marketing agency like WebFX.  

Social media ads

Social media sites are fertile grounds for effective ad campaigns. Just like PPC ads replicate Google searches, a social media advertisement replicates the platform’s regular posts. 

You can advertise on any social media site, including major players like Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok. You can pay to promote any text-based post, image, or video.  

Social media pages make it easy to target prospects you know are likely to consider home security solutions. Do your consumer research and then develop social media ads that include useful information and a link to your relevant landing page. 

Lead nurturing tactics

The strategies we discussed above will pull leads to your site. Next, you’ll need to usher prospects closer to a purchase or loop buyers back around to lead status. Email marketing is one of the best ways to use the information you’ve gathered from a lead to create a conversion or repeat purchase. 

Email marketing

If someone joins your email list, you know they’re more interested in your home security solutions than the average prospect. Email marketing is an excellent way to build leads for particular home security offerings and nurture the leads you already have. 

Email marketing can tailor your strategy to every prospect or segment. The prospect has already told you some information about themself, and you know where they fall in the customer journey. 

Target your prospects with newsletters, product announcements, discount offers, sales, and other campaigns according to their current standing. Also, personalize your emails by addressing the recipient by name whenever possible. You’ll build trust as you generate and nurture leads.
