Inbound Marketing: A Smart Lead-Generation Idea
The foundation for great inbound marketing is an optimized digital presence. TSL knows that online marketing requires an array of skills, from technical to creative. Our creative team works to help you develop your plan, our designers build out the vision, and then our web developers make that vision a digital reality.
Your website is the digital billboard that tells the world who you are. It is the hub for your digital content. We develop mobile-friendly, easy-to-navigate websites for channel partners.
From start to finish, TSL handles the planning, design, development, and optimization of your website. We even offer hosting and yearly maintenance services. Unlike many web development firms, we also provide copywriting services so that your site content is targeted, relevant, and well-written.

Search Engine Optimization
If a great website is never found in search, is it really that great? For many channel partners, SEO is a confusing game where the rules are constantly changing. That is why we have a team of experts that is devoted to the topic. Your website should be more than an online business card. It should be built in a way that attracts new visitors from search engines.
TSL's SEO experts work with clients to analyze, build, and optimize digital content so that it can be found in search.

Many of the B2B channel partners we work with lack original branded content. While they have access to thousands of pages of partner collateral, they lack compelling content that tells the story of what makes their brand unique.
TSL works with channel partners to build digital content that is persona-targeted, compelling, and visually appealing. We handle all aspects, from concept and design to copy and distribution, of:
- B2B Case Studies
- White Papers
- Sell Sheets
Landing Page Development and Optimization
Having landing pages that house your content and assist in conversions is critical for a successful inbound marketing strategy. Many channel partners settle for a contact us/form page as the only conversion opportunity on their website.
TSL goes beyond the form to create landing pages that are purpose-built for achieving your desired results. If you're looking for more form conversions and content downloads, well-designed landing pages are a requirement in today's digital marketing world.
Social Media Management
For many channel partners, social media is an afterthought. It can no longer be this way. A social media presence is a must-have. Having a social media strategy that integrates with your business plans should be included in any modern marketing budget.
Our team helps channel partners develop a social media presence and manage their social channels. We know that social media is one of the best ways to promote digital content and engage with customers and prospects. Our team of B2B social media marketing experts understands the mechanics of today's top social media sites. They share that know-how with our clients so that companies can make the most of their social media presence.
B2B Digital Advertising
The paid amplification of B2B marketing content and offers helps get an organization's content out to a wider audience. TSL's status as a Certified Google Partner means your channel organization can trust us to build and manage AdWords, Google Display, and remarketing campaigns that meet your company's goals.
TSL's social media advertising specialists help you to promote your content and offers on social media channels such as LinkedIn. Using B2B targeting options, we can help you get your content in front of extremely narrow sets and subsets of your ideal customer.
Marketing Support Services
Our deep experience in the B2B channel gives us a unique perspective on the industry. Our team sits at the intersection of inbound and outbound marketing. We maintain a team of solution area experts that can support a wide range of channel sales and marketing needs.
B2B Channel Strategy
We work to help create and refine channel marketing strategies. Co-marketing deployment is our specialty. We help organizations develop an optimal partner profile and then play a role in the staging, launch, and execution of the channel plan. From partner recruitment and training to enablement and execution, we cover the channel from end-to-end.
The development of thousands of leads requires proper lead tracking. TSL can provide lead entry and tracking so that both channel organizations and partners can keep tabs on their pipeline. If you're looking for help maintaining your current CRM or if you need to build a new pipeline management process, we can help.
B2B List Procurement and Development
Many organizations lack focused outbound marketing activities because they don't have targeted lists to use for their efforts. We help advise channel organizations on their list needs based on their target demographics and business goals.
We also help to procure, develop, and maintain B2B prospect lists. By working with a trusted network of list brokers, we help channel partners market more effectively.
Channel partners, especially in the technology space, need more than just traditional B2B targeting parameters such as company size and contact title. Our partnerships with some of the top technology list brokers give us access to technology install data that is vital to many channel partners.
Our team of B2B sales and marketing professionals can offer consultation and training on a wide range of topics. We pride ourselves on being industry experts who sit at the intersection of inbound and outbound marketing.

B2B Channel Lead Management
Successful pipeline management and optimization is the result of using data in a timely and effective manner. Our management systems track and report at the campaign level. We’ve established processes that enable real-time campaign optimization.
Leave No Lead Behind
With our “leave no lead behind” lead-progression methodology, you’ll have the visibility that you need from your partner marketing activities.
From the moment a lead is uncovered, our team documents the business intelligence gathered on the call. We create a detailed record of the lead and build out a lead report. Leads can be reviewed on an individual level or at the campaign level.
Once a lead is generated, TSL's dedicated leads desk enters leads into your CRM and lead-tracking systems. This gives you more insight into the lead-generation activities.
TSL's team can provide reporting and tracking of generated leads. This allows leads to be updated as any status changes come through.
Our systems allow us to retain the leads based on your business needs. TSL's Lead-Progression team takes ownership of the lead throughout the sales cycle.
Complete pipeline visibility gives us the ability to report back channel partner wins to show marketing ROI. We also help partners report previously unreported wins from outside of our systems.
