6 Tips to Generate Leads Online…using a survey

Everybody knows that leveraging the internet is the most efficient way to do Marketing. And the most important thing of doing online marketing for a company is to generate more Leads.

Here are 6 tips of how to generate more leads online:

1. Questions. Define the criteria of being a lead for your company. Interest? Time frame? (Budget?). You need to build the online  question base on the result you want to get from your potential customer.

2. Build Online Survey. Since you have fully prepared the questions you want to ask. Put them together and build a survey with your company’s logo and masthead banner. And please DO include the lead related questions in your Survey.

3. Thank you page. You need to prepare a Thank you page, not only to thank the people who take the online survey but lead them to the link you want them to after they click the submit button.

4. Post your online survey. Post your survey to the place who people may highly interest. e.g. LinkedIn Group, Facebook, or even blast a batch of email to reach the potential customer. The more related people or people who have the same interest the more leads may be generated by this survey.

5. Offer. Not everyone has an interest in taking themselves out of their comfort zone, especially you ask detail questions in survey. If you still want to get response from them, GIVE THEM A REASON! Offer is always needed. from white paper download to gift with company’s logo depends the target audience.

6. Follow up. After your online survey campaign finished, please do review the responses and do the follow up action not only for positive lead response, but for all people who responded. You can call them to make a official thanks or confirm the contact information to deliver gift, some leads hiding in there, believe me.

How does social media help businesses who provide services and not products?

Social media marketing is the process of promoting your site or business through social media channels and it is a powerful strategy that will get you links, attention and massive amounts of traffic.

There is no other low-cost promotional method out there that will easily give you large numbers of visitors, some of whom may come back to your website again and again.

If you are selling products/services or just publishing content for ad revenue, social media marketing is a potent method that will make your site profitable over time.

Those who ignore the efficacy of social media usually fall into three categories; the ones who don’t know much or anything about social media, the ones who are interested but don’t know how to use it and those who don’t believe in the value that a social media strategy can bring to any site or business.

For those who don’t understand or see the value of social media websites, let’s take a look at the benefits of creating viral content and effectively promoting them through social media channels.

Developing link bits and successfully getting it popular on various social media websites like Digg and StumbleUpon will lead to multiple benefits for any website:

  • Primary and Secondary Traffic. Primary traffic is the large amount of visitors who come directly from social media websites. Secondary traffic is referral traffic from websites which link to and send you visitors, after they come across your content through the social sites.
  • High Quality Links. Becoming popular on social news websites like Digg or Reddit will get you a large number of links, some of which may be topically relevant, some not. A good story can realistically acquire a large number of high quality editorial links, most of which cannot be easily bought.

Now let’s translate this into tangible benefits for your website:

1. Links = Better Search Engine Rankings.

When a website receives a large number of natural, permanent links from trusted domains, it develops authority. Search engines trust it. If you optimize your link bait and website structure properly, you can easily start ranking for competitive keywords, which will in turn bring in search engine visitors.

Do this often enough and your search traffic will undoubtedly increase. In a sense, you are obtaining these quality links through borrowed trust. Many bloggers and webmaster still think that if an article is on the Digg or homepage, then it’s probably worth checking out and referencing through a citation link.

A new website may find it difficult to gain links from a critical mass that is not familiar with it but a trusted social news resource makes it easier for links to come in, because the community and buzz has somewhat ‘certified‘ the value of the site. Note that the actual strength of the article is still of utmost importance for all.

2. Primary + Secondary Traffic = Community/Supporters.

Some people claim that social news websites only send useless traffic, visitors that will often just view a specific webpage and click away. Yes, that’s usually the case. Sites like Digg are notorious for their poor bounce rates: many visitors drop in for the article and then leave after reading it. Stumble upon is much better in this aspect.

But don’t mistake this with a lack of interest. Your subscriber figures will often take big jump up and then stabilize after a few days. If your entire site is relevant to the general interests of the social media website, there will always be a handful of social users who will start to track your site in order to submit future content.

Detractors also ignore the power of ultra targeted secondary traffic. General sites or blogs in the same niche will link to a story that’s popular on social sites, because it adds value for their readers or users. This is done naturally on a daily basis for many.

While primary traffic usually comes in a larger volume, I would argue that secondary traffic is more valuable. Why? Because links from other websites bring visitors who are very likely to be interested in your content. These citation links demonstrate recognition of your site in the eyes of others. It builds your brand.

Think of the social news site as a platform or a soapbox. As something that gives you a chance to be heard or read, even for a brief moment of a few hours.

The people who are drawn to your message will visit your site and recommend it to others…

3 Rules For Finishing The Master Cleanse

If you are not prepared for what you’ll experience when you
do the Master Cleanse there’s a good chance you’ll fail. Typically lasting just
10 days, it’s easy to see why people just “jump right in” to the
Master Cleanse thinking it will be easy. It’s not!

During your time on the Master Cleanse you are likely to
experience hunger, aches, and irritability. Most people give up because of
hunger. Putting solid food aside for a couple days and only drinking liquids is
harder then most people think. Even though the cravings for whole foods can be
difficult they do subside after a few days on the Master Cleanse.

So rule number 1 for finishing the Master Cleanse is getting
past the third day. Instead of focusing on completing the entire 10 days from
the onset of the cleanse just focus on getting past day 3. Breaking the Master
Cleanse down into smaller milestones will be a big help.

Rule number 2 for finishing the Master Cleanse is dealing
with aches and soreness. Headaches are one of the most common Master Cleanse
side effects, but some people also get body aches.

To reduce aches you should drink a lot of water. It’s also
good to relax and not push your self too hard when you do the Master Cleanse.
Exercising should be kept to light walking and stretching. Your body will be
going through a rigorous cleansing process during the Master Cleanse, and won’t
be able to adequately recover from intense exercise during this time.

Rule number 3 for finishing the Master Cleanse is overcoming
irritability. This affects the people around you more then it does yourself,
but it’s something you need to be aware of before starting the Master Cleanse.

It’s best to let the people around you know that you’re
going to be doing the Master Cleanse ahead of time so they can do their best to
accommodate you. Also try to plan your Master Cleanse when you’re not too busy.
Most of us can’t just take 10 days off to do the Master Cleanse, but you should
try to avoid doing it when you’re swamped at work, or have other stressful
events going on in your life.

There’s more to succeeding at the Master Cleanse then I can
cover in this small article.

If you are serious about trying the Master Cleanse
and want to be one of the people who do make it through the whole 10 days the
Master Cleanse Secrets book at is the
most complete guide available for helping you get through the Master

How to market yourself in a recession!

Today I will  talk about “How to market yourself as a writer in a recession!”

How do you get those clients to reach into their pockets and spend their money on your products or services?

The answer:

Well you must first start by revamping your whole marketing strategy.

How I here you ask?

Well start by looking at all your reports and business documents, who are you marketing to right now?  Who is your target audience?  Where is your demographics aimed at? These are a couple of things that we are going to concentrate on today.  I don’t want to overload you with information so we will just concentrate on these two things for now.

Revamping your marketing strategy can be a lucrative mode of money in the pocket.  If say, you use social media sites to get your name out there writing blogs for example then use it, but don’t abuse it.  If you want to write a blog to advertise your website then do it, it is great way of advertising and a lot of high profile clients read blogs.  They like to find good writers this way and they can see the writing style of that particular writer and judge accordingly.

I have gotten high profile clients from writing my blogs and its been very lucrative.

BUT don’t write for $5 per 500 words as it decreases your value as a writer and it won’t let the newbie writers get a luck in for the future.

I charge minimum $75 for a  500 word article no more no less and that is if I am feeling generous. If I want to make real money I charge no less than $150 per 500 words

I know this recession does not help, but you can’t degrade yourself by lowering your prices and writing for peanuts. The recession won’t last long (hopefully) and then what? Your clients  still want to pay you what you have been receiving, so then what do you do? It defeats the purpose of  charging anything at all, if you are going to write for $5 per the 500 words.

The other topic is about demographics: Where are you targeting your articles and sales writing? Are you putting your effort into using different social media sites, or having your own website and there is no excuses as there are a lot of free places where you can host a site until you start making some good money.

In Google search put in “Hosting websites for free” Or ” free website hosting” there are a lot of response that come up.  And get yourself  a website then advertise that website on blogs,   become a affiliate  marketer and promote other products online on your site. It well worth it. any getting back to demographics, make sure you are targeting the right area you want to write in.

Well that is it for today got to get back to my marketing and writing sales letters for my clients. See you tomorrow for another blog , which will be about “How to get the lucrative clients that you want”

Take care and best wishes,

Would also love to hear your comments…
