This step is often overlooked, as it can be very hard to approach your sales process from an outside perspective. Long-term nurture is another important facet of any sales and marketing strategy. People usually equate this with email newsletters and other consistent communication. Email systems that allow you to monitor link clicks, opens, and other indicators of engagement can be a powerful tool at your disposal. Take the time to truly study the behaviors of your customers and prospects.

Identify gaps in their education and nurture. Solve for problems that manifest themselves. When your long-term nurture becomes as educational for you as it does for your list, then true magic can happen.
