1. Special events and promotion:
Events are a very powerful way of boosting your lead generation efforts and offering prospects a chance to be educated about the benefits and results of your products. Make doing business with you a memorable experience for the people. The more enjoyable, fascinating, informative and knowledgeable you can make the experience, the more business you will do. Also, the stronger and more meaningful the bond you will form with your customers.
2. Leverage your competitors’ resources:
Making use of the relationships that your competitors do not properly or fully develop or appreciate, is quite a clever thing to do! You can simply make arrangements to obtain details from them of all their unconverted leads, unsold prospects and unconverted enquiries are like them handing you the keys to their own customer list.
It is an arrangement for the lead generation where the franchiser (one firm) allows the franchisee ( another firm) to use its business model along with its trademark. This helps produce and market a good or service according to certain specifications. The franchisee has to pay one-time franchise fee plus a percentage of its sales revenue and gains in return:
i) immediate name recognition
ii) detailed and guaranteed techniques of running a fully fledged business.
iii) training of employees
iv) ongoing help in promoting and upgrading of products that are tied and tested.
4. Telemarketing and direct mailing:
Telemarketing is a method of direct marketing in which a salesperson solicits prospective customers to buy products or services, either over the phone or through a subsequent face to face or web conference appointment. It can also include recorded sales pitches programmed to be played over the phone through automatic dialing. Telemarketing is flexible in scope, message, and the things it can achieve.
It works especially well in collaboration with direct mail because it allows you to identify prospects and reach them directly through two media.
Blogs are yet another effective means for lead generation. Blog posts that educate your customers on your products or services help your customers in a much better manner.
As a matter of fact, the more exciting and fascinating pages you publish, the more favorably search engines like Google look at your website. As a result, you’ll attract more visitors via search which in turn leads to increased sales.
