Generating leads isn’t always the easiest thing to do, but what you may not realize is that the internet is your best friend.
The internet affords us opportunities that we didn’t have before it arrived.
We survived, but it certainly made marketing easier, didn’t it? There are now more options than ever, using this super information highway.
How can you harness it without feeling overwhelmed?
Today, I am going to share with you how you can leverage the most commonly used tool known to man, the computer.
You’ll also discover why this works best, and how you can make it work to your advantage while building a business part-time on the side.
Generating Leads with a Laptop Computer
Regardless of what type of computer you have you can generate leads.
The entire process of getting leads starts from the moment you build a marketing campaign to stimulate your audience.
If you can capture their attention you’re off to a great start.
Owning a computer makes it all possible. I am so convinced of this, I would go so far as to say that you could rent one if you had to before buying to get started.
Generating leads all starts with an attractive offer. A KILLER OFFER. How does this offer look?
- It must attract your ideal customer. Once you know who your ideal customer is, you’ll know what offer you should craft for them. Developing a sales pipeline is all dependent on your audience and the offer you craft for them. Will it excite them? Will it cause them to run to your website and click? What about purchase? This is how powerful you need to make your office in order to have the greatest amount of success.
- Direct engagement is best. Did you know that engaging with your audience directly is best? Most folks miss this. The idea that you can market online does make it easier for you to engage with your audience. However, this means you MUST talk to them. Video and engaging conversation online in social media platforms is a good way to do this. Directly engage your audience and you’ll have no regrets about how it all ends up.
- Deploy your outbound and inbound marketing techniques. Did you know that deploying your outbound marketing is the only way to let people know you exist? Your inbound? Well, let’s just say it’s married to the first marketing method. Once you deploy your outbound marketing method, whatever it is that you chose, you can expect to get folks that email, message and call you. This is ideal because you want them to. You want them to ask you more about who you are and what you are doing. So, how do you handle your inbound marketing? You need to have your funnel started. This means that you need to have a way to respond to those who are asking you about what you’re doing. If you haven’t started this already, make sure that you set up your email marketing campaign. Use a tool like Mail Chimp, or something similar to help you get started. Once you craft some email autoresponders you can have a system set up with a response for so many days out and so on. You’ll have a system for marketing to those who have purchased from you and those who have not. You’ll be set on autopilot!
- Invest in various forms of technology. Did you know that technology isn’t just about your computer? While this will be the place you do most of your work, keep in mind that a good smartphone goes a long way. You can make your calls, read your emails, and you can track your results in your marketing tools. At the very least, make sure you can access your information. Once you deploy your marketing methods, you’ll want to make sure you have a way to access it all so you can track it. Deploy, track, and repeat. It all counts!
- Content creation, curation, and marketing. So, content marketing is where it’s at, but you gotta have the content first. Creating compelling content is the key to launching an amazing business. Content creation, curation, and marketing all go together. It’s the quintessential core to building your online business. It all revolves around content. Create the content, whether written or video, and then market it. If you are struggling to come up with compelling content look to those who are experts and draw from content they have already created. Market video creatively through social media, your website, your blog, and through email marketing. All channels are essential for marketing efforts.
Generating leads will become easier over time when you use these channels to build your business.
It takes time to learn how to implement these tools and how to best use them to your advantage.
