- If you need increased visibility to reach more customers and clients, start with your headlines. But, where are you going to go to find those prospects? Social media can be an effective and economical way to find new prospects. Creating videos for YouTube is another way. Blogging, podcasting, and SEO are other ways.
- Holding their interest. This has to do with everyone’s favorite radio station – WII-FM. That stand for “what’s in it for me? Answer that question and you’re on your way to creating the interest that will get your prospects to consume your marketing.
- Use email to build relationships with your prospects and stronger relationships with your customers.
- Stand out from the crowd. What’s different about you and your products and services than what your competitor’s offer?
- Getting people to act. People respond to solutions for their problems – what results do you deliver? Begin with a lead magnet that demonstrates what you have to offer. The bottom line is that if you want to grab more leads and sales, you’ve got to have great content WITH great calls to action.
