How to get more inbound leads

Marketing is never an easy task; there is no one size fits all approach. A smart digital marketer creates a different approach for each and every client they have.

If you are the marketing department for your small business, you are in luck because you only have one client – You!

By having a brilliant inbound leads system you will create a funnel that you can fill with prospective clients. From here you take them on a journey towards doing business with your small business.

Step 1 – Define the lead

If you are a website designer – you want people who need websites

If you are a blogger – you want subscribers

If you sell products – you want people to buy your products

If you are a consultant – you want clients

If you are a YouTuber – you want more viewers

Step 2 – Strategies

First look at what you are currently doing and honestly see why it is or isn’t working. If it is working keep going and if it isn’t working then you need to change things immediately.

Newsletters – Done well your newsletter can and should generate business on a regular basis.

Newsletter Tips
