Resuscitation Marketing 101
Melbourne-based entrepreneur, author, and award-winning marketing expert Pete Williams has developed what he calls “resuscitation marketing,” a systematic process of re-engaging lost leads and turning them back into active prospects. Using marketing automation software and email marketing platforms, the idea is to segment lost leads into specific categories based on their “causes of death” and craft a unique messaging campaign that will revive their interest in your products and help you close a sale.

Here is a six-step process to systematically and automatically resuscitate dead leads back to life and increase your conversions without new leads.
Step 1: Map out your sales funnel.
Step 2: Identify the death traps / where your prospects are falling out of the sales funnel.
Step 3: Categorise and group together the causes of death.
Step 4: Create marketing automation sequences to re-engage prospect.
Step 5: Use automation to move “lost” leads into new re-engagement funnels.
Step 6: Review, adjust and tweak based on results.
Making the system work for itself
Automating your re-engagement process for lost leads increases your chances of unlocking new sales that you would have otherwise forgotten about. With the right tools (refer to Step 4 above), your resuscitation marketing campaign could pretty much run on its own – meaning less manual work for your sales team and more time for them to focus on congruent new lead generation efforts.
