So what is the best and fastest way to build a list and get leads? In this blog post, I am going outline for you the tools you need and the best places to get traffic to those pages.
Before you can get leads, you must have a place to capture leads. You need a capture page and you also need an autoresponder.
These are needed if you want to build a list which I highly recommend. The easiest way to get these and set them up fast is to use a system that is already built for you with ready made capture pages.
I mean don’t get me wrong, you can set up your own websites if you want, but when you add up the cost of hosting, website design, testing and tweaking for the best conversions, it in your best interest to go with a system that is already set up and works for you.
If you don’t have capture pages set up currently, this is what I use and recommend. It’s fast and ready to go and the community is rock solid.
Ok, so on to traffic….
Once you have your capture page and autoresponder (and this is what I use) in place, you can use the following strategies to drive traffic to your capture pages.
One of the best ways to get leads is to find out where people hang out online and find the best way to provide value to them.
The following are 2 of my favorite places to drive traffic to my capture pages in order to build my list.
#1 Way To Get Leads Online – Social Media
Without question, I believe one of the best ways to get leads is using social media sites like Facebook, to not only build your list, but build relationships in the process.
There are several ways you can begin to build your list in this way. First and foremost, understand that spam will never work.
Just posting your links all over the place is a joke and does not work. Nobody responds to this type of marketing.
Whats even worse is this type of marketing can ruin your reputation and will get you banned from these social media sites.
The best way to use common sense is to understand the spirit of social media.
Learning some simple strategies for placing ads and generating leads on Facebook is key to make social media work for you.
I like to use a combination of value based posts as well as videos to help people to get to know me, and my content and then I give the opportunity to opt in at the end of the video.
