Internet Marketing Habits – 9 Top Lead Generation Tips
If you are new to Internet marketing, get ready for a wild ride. Once starting out and having one product ready to sell, hopefully you have put up some sort of squeeze page so subscribers can opt-in to obtain your free or paid product.
In the beginning, you will spend at least 50 percent of your time each day on lead generation. This is the most important phase of your business when starting out as it is what will later drive your sales up.
Once you are in the more profitable stages, you will be able to scale your efforts down a bit to 15% – 20% depending on how responsive your list is. However, you should always be on the prowl for new and better sources of leads.
This is not an area of your business that can be neglected. Here are a few of the better methods to gain traffic and hopefully converting it to leads:
- Free product, report or audio giveaway
- Forum posting with your site URL
- Blog commenting
- Twitter campaigns
- Facebook campaigns
- Article directories
- Blog posting
- JV giveaways
Again, lead generation is not something that can be taken lightly or ignored no matter what the stage of business you are in. In the long run, you will find this is a sure way to business disaster. Make time during every day to locate new of leads. Once the money comes rolling in, many of these steps can be outsourced so you can spend your valuable time on more productive activities.
