Video Biz Tip – Lead Generation Tips for Small Businesses

lead generation

Today I want to talk to you about a topic that’s very important to your business – Lead Generation! Lead generation includes online and offline lead generation. Do you think about the number of leads you need every month? That a big mistake I see others making – they just aren’t connecting with enough new prospects, new leads every month. They are relying on their current list of people to take action and buy from. Many business owners are not effective in their lead generation, follow-up and sales. And, they are not making enough money. So you have to start thinking about lead generation and learn to be persistent with your efforts.

Embrace Networking to Grow Your Business Now

networking

Networking is probably the single most critical thing that I’ve ever learned to do well that has impacted my business the most with more clients, more opportunities, more exposure and more fun. The more people you know, the more referrals and repeat business you will get. The number of people you have in your database is the number of people you have access to market to on a regular basis so your #1 goal in your business should be to build your database and set up a consistent, frequent system for marketing and following up with them. If this isn't your #1 goal, you're missing out on a ton of sales. If you're not networking (online and in person in some way), you're missing out on a ton … [Read more...]
