Wow! 70 Proven Ways to Generate More Leads
There are many, many ways to get leads to build your network. The good news is, that’s OK. You don’t have to use all 70 ideas. Another good thing is that whatever method or strategy you decide on isn’t written in stone. You can change it any time you want.
If you try one method and it doesn’t work for you, try another. As you become more confident in growing your network, you can begin to learn some of those things that are totally new to you. Usually a simple Google search will give you an abundant source of information on how to use that process effectively.
Give them a try. Sure, you probably won’t get it exactly right the first time, but don’t just give up. Keep at it. Doing things like starting a blog or joining a forum, however, are extremely inexpensive or even “free!” The problem with standard advertising to grow your network is that it is just kind of thrown out there to the general public.
When you’re able to cater your content to a specific group of people, like those who want information your industry, you get a better quality lead. In the old battle of “quantity VS quality,” it is better to have 10 solid leads that can be converted into buying customers than it is to have 100 who could care less about what you have to offer. Only in a fairy tale or fable can someone throw a handful of beans out the window and grow something that will give them wealth. You can’t just toss your ads in the air and expect them to grow your network. In real life, if you want those beans to grow, you don’t toss them. You plant them in a place where the soil is good and they can get plenty of sunshine. You nurture them by fertilizing them and watering them. Then, you benefit from them.
If you were asked what a social network was, you’d immediately think of Facebook or Twitter. You’d know that a social network was a way of
reaching out to friends. You build your list of friends over time. Networking works the same for businesses. Over time, you develop new contacts and customers. As the list grows, so does your business.
Building a list of people you could never convert into customers wouldn’t do you a bit of good. You probably know what a target market is, and you know who your target market is. You’ve studied them, and you know what they’re looking for. You know the type of people you could convert to customers if they had the chance to get to know what your business is all about and see what you have to offer them. That’s the type of people you’re looking for. That’s the kind of network you need to build to be sure your business is successful.
When you’re trying to grow your network, you do the same thing. You place your content in the right area where it can get the right traffic. You actively nurture it by working your site and making sure you develop quality content. Your network will grow just like that beanstalk, but unfortunately, it won’t be overnight.
It takes time to develop the kind of quality leads and contacts you want. It also takes effort on your part. Remember, experimentation is the best way to determine which methods work for you. If you don’t experiment with many different methods, you might be missing out on a gold mine opportunity.
Ultimately, you decide which paths to follow, which methods to use, and which steps you take to grow your network. You will be the one getting all the kudos when success comes your way, but you’ll also be the one getting the blame when the strategies don’t work. Be prepared for some of them to fail. Always be thinking of new ways, so when one you try doesn’t work, you’ll have something new waiting to take its place.
