6 Marketing Tips that Can Make Lead Generation Easy
1. Make your company or organisation visible with online networking
Today’s world is totally and digitally networked. Considering how much money goes into online marketing, it’s no surprise that the popularity of some companies has exploded. If you want your business to explode in a similar way, you need to make it visible on the radar. Invest in online networking. It’s a silly idea not to invest. Make a move forward. Choose the networks where you see your competitors and more importantly your target audience.
Attracting leads begins with first solving the discovery puzzle for your brand.
2. Make landing pages clear and easy to take action on
Landing pages are pages that the website visitor literally lands on, or in simple words the targeted webpage they see first after directed from a campaign. These exist solely for making the visitor to go through all the information you provide and perform an action. There’s a call-to-action (CTA) button that may offers things like buying a product, or downloading a report etc.
If you’ve been on the internet for a long time, you know just how bad and repulsive a website can be if it isn’t designed properly. A website that isn’t clear enough will not get many clicks and visits. The exact rule can be applied to landing pages as well. Make them clean, professional and easy to take action on for all device preferences, including mobiles. Use a big CTA button at the bottom and make all the necessary information clearly visible.
Leads will flow in, just make it easy for them to connect with you with your CTAs!
3. Increase the number of opt-in offers on your site
The more opt-in offers your website has, the more freedom the user has. Make sure you have multiple opt-in offers because the visitor or customer will most likely choose one of these offers. Don’t force the visitor to look at something or buy something, simply give them the freedom to do what they want. No one likes not being able to have a choice or having to fend for information for too long. Make it easy and accessible to allow user actions.
Opt-ins are not about a marketing overdose but choices. They give your leads a path to connect with you, like through your email list!
4. Create hassle-free sign-up forms
If you’ve ever gone through the process of signing up on a website (and you most likely have), you know that some websites have sign-up forms that are a nightmare to complete. These types of forms can make a user simply leave without visiting the website ever again. If you don’t want this to happen to you and your business, be sure to create forms that have simple and easy steps. Don’t make the audiences put in too much effort or information that they get bored with. In most cases, this guarantees that visitors will register if they are interested in your services.
Lead generation can be cut into half or lesser with poorly designed sign up forms. Stay smart and A/B test performances to arrive at the best solution for your customers.
5. Write better ads and better offers
Don’t make generic ads and offers because customers won’t appreciate that. Can you imagine how many products don’t get sold just because of silly marketing that doesn’t stand well with customers? When people see a bad ad, they react negatively. Take some time to prepare great ads and offers because, in the long run, it will be worth it!
Leads get attracted to you with the quality of your copies and stories. Even if it’s an advert, 90% customers want them to read like stories. What are you waiting for?
6. Answer questions on Quora
Staying connected with your customers is recommended by almost everyone, both customers and other business owners. You can get insight into what the customer wants through Quora and other social media. The customers will also feel much better if they know that they can talk to their preferred business and express their ideas and thoughts. This will allow you to stay connected.
Only people interested in your business or industry make an effort to ask key questions on such platforms. You will be surprised how the quality of your leads improves with platforms that attract a niche. Don’t let go of simple and effective opportunities.
It might seem like there’s a lot of work to do, but I assure you that it’s not as scary as you may think. The trick is to get started NOW. Leads need nurturing, care and your effort. As a business why would you want to stay behind?
