How to Create Lead Conversions

Inbound marketing is a relatively new term in the marketing community and marketers are still fine-tuning their systems to fully use it to their advantage. The most essential element of the inbound marketing toolkit is the lead conversion process.

The conversion process is the bread and butter of any inbound marketing program. Without a seamless and fully-integrated conversion process you are basically wasting your time and money on efforts that will never convert into revenue. So it is essential that you take the time to convert those leads that you work so hard to bring to your landing pages. Once you get them to the web page that you want them on, this brings them to the conversion process so you can capture those lead conversions.

There are various methods you can utilize to bring your prospects to your desired landing pages prior to getting them to complete the conversion. You will want to subscribe to this blog as I will go in depth on each marketing channel in the weeks to come. For now, let’s make sure you understand how to complete the conversion process so you can capture those leads when they visit your landing page!

  1. Create an offer that is relevant to your contacts. Pay attention to where your contacts are in the funnel. Are they cold contacts? Then an eBook would be good to gain interest. Are they a current customer that you are trying to upsell? A relevant checklist would be good. Have they already showed interest in your product offerings? Offer them a demo or a coupon for enrollment!
  2. Host that offer on a thank you page and/or with a follow-up email. You must deliver the promised content once they submit their information to you. You can host your content on a thank you page or deliver it in a follow-up email. You could also deliver the content upon conversion by including a content link in the associated form in step 3.
  3. Create the landing page with an integrated form. There are many programs that you can create a landing page with, but the most important part is to integrate a form with the landing page that will capture those submissions! This submission form will direct the contact to the content whether it is hosted on a thank you page, delivered automatically through a content link, or delivered in an automated email.
  4. Then you will want to segment your acquired lead lists for email marketing purposes!

Now that you have completed and refined your conversion process you are ready to begin driving traffic to your website to generate those leads you worked so hard to convert.

    3 Reasons to begin promoting to a US Hispanic audience

    There are three main reasons why US businesses should begin considering the possibility of promoting themselves more towards a Hispanic audience. These three reasons are as follows:

    1. There are 46.3 million Hispanics living in the US today.
    2. 20.9 million of these US Hispanics are very active online users.
    3. Spanish language online keywords cost considerably less than their English language equivalents.

    The question therefore is not whether promoting towards a US Hispanic audience is worthwhile in general. The above three facts clearly give good reason for thinking about approaching a US Hispanic demographic as part of any PPC campaign that you are managing. The question is simply whether your particular business or the PPC client’s business for whom you work is a business that would appeal to a US Hispanic audience.

    The following is a quick tip list for testing out your PPC campaign and business on a US Hispanic audience before actually beginning to spend money on the venture. The tips are quick and easy to implement but they also provide a lot of key information that you can use to assess whether creating a PPC campaign designed to attract the Hispanic population in the US to your website, product or service is a good idea or not.

    Can I Market My Business Online Without a Website?

    The short answer to whether a business can be marketed online without having a website is “yes.” In fact, a website that is not being marketed properly will cause more problems and more disappointment than a business without a website in the first place.

    Too many small businesses register a domain name and then do nothing with their site. Even worse, however, those same businesses then also do nothing to promote their worthless website. Their marketing strategies are really poor and as a result little traffic is driven to the site, the business’ reputation and brand doesn’t grow and sales do not increase.

    What is essential in terms of running a business today is developing an active online reputation, managing your online presence and doing everything you can to both better your search listing position and increase your PPC conversions. All three things can be done without having a website. (more…)

    Why Are My Social Networking Efforts Not Working?

    It is now almost impossible to run a business without being connected in some way to social media networks. LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and the like are excellent and necessary forums for promoting your business, driving traffic to your website and creating a brand that your target audience will gradually become familiar with and learn to trust.

    Twitter is an excellent social network forum because the structure of the site means that people can only post very short pieces of information at a time which is an excellent way of tapping into the mindset of the average internet user. Twitter also has a very accessible API which means that there are a number of different features, programs and tools that have been created for Twitterers. Therefore the possibilities that exist for online networking through this site are infinite.

    However, tweeting a thought on Twitter, creating an account on LinkedIn or developing a Business Page on Facebook is one thing. Making them work for you is another thing entirely. There are huge volumes of social network accounts, pages and profiles floating around on the Internet that are almost if not completely useless to their creators. This is because, as well as uploading content onto these sites you must be aware of the kind of style necessary to generate a buzz. (more…)
