Capture the Leads In Your Arena

Q: What is a lead?
A: Someone who has given you their email so you can continue the conversation toward a sale or other conversion.

Q: Why would someone give me his or her email specifically?
A: A person in your commercial or interest arena would give you his or her email to receive:
1) information
2) services and products
3) deals and offers

Q: Can I get leads by myself?
A: Yes, you can, specifically when you (or staff):
1) ask shoppers for email addresses at your business locations or events
2) create lead attractions on your internet platforms such as web and social pages
3) create leads in your email sendouts and email campaigns
4) create leads in your social platform advertising campaigns. (In these pages I concentrate on the different platforms owned by Google and Facebook, but there are other options as well.)
5) put your email on your business cards and all other media you put out

Q: Are there commercial tools to help me get leads?
A: Yes. check the Tools and Resources page after you've read through these pages.

Q: Can you help me get leads?
Y: Yes, beyond this page, with or without the tools that can be integrated into your web page or sales funnel, we implement scalable lead attraction programs to get you started and continue as your lead population grows and grows.

Like seeds, you plant your leads in your arena so you can grow them toward becoming a regular customer. Then you restart a fresh lead programs for both prospects and customers. The overused term rinse and repeat applies.

Simple Funnel Diagram

Take Your Leads Through Your (Lead) Funnel

A simple illustrated funnel. Funnels are shown to be very effective because they can take the visitor through the steps a sales person would present to either engage and/or buy. Most of the time the conclusion of the process is providing an email in exchange for free information or the purchase of a product or service.
This page overlaps the email page to a large degree. As we've discussed, the best way to get leads is to get emails. The best way to get emails is through a landing, web or even funnel page, funnel that gives away something.

A funnel is like building a web page--because it is a web page. It is built to "funnel" the reader to an end result, such as purchasing a product or giving an email for information.

So, first question, when should you use a web page and when a funnel? A web page is your standard communication tool. Aside from email, it is your most malleable and consistent communications and promotion tool.

A funnel is special--or its for items you want to present as special.

Getting leads is about two separate things: 1) getting the emails or the Leads and 2) then taking the lead through the sales funnel.
We discussed #1 in the email page. Now, let's talk about how you turn your leads into sales.

In my 20 years of marketing on the internet, the best, quickest way to get leads is to offer a PDF to your best people in exchange for their email. The PDF has to be of informational value your people would want to have.

This is a pause for everybody. How do I just pull "something of value" out of the air and offer it to the people who are my best markets? That "something" is free information about something in your arena. You can pay us, someone else or write it yourself.

The funnel path is as much a tactic as anything else. A funnel, actually a long page web site, can be as complex as a single web page or be a frequent retouch with automatic send-outs for weeks.

Your two options regarding writing: do it yourself to start OR get a professional writer/communicator to "ghost post" on your accounts.

On do it yourself writing: Like photos, this can be very persuasive and break down resistance--if your copy is good. If not, you can make yourself look bad and drive away conversions.

On hiring post writers: The more your writer works with you, the better he or she becomes. If the writer does good posts say, twice a week, your momentum will pick up speed and you will collect emails and engagement as never before. See our writing costs at right.

Remember, you can hire writers for anything: such as your lead magnets, web page, sales funnel, email campaigns as well as blog posts.
