How Do You Fish Leads for Your Business?

Follow these straightforward tips.

No ads spent. But everlasting leads guaranteed.

Are you a business owner, freelancer or service provider who wants to get leads on a daily basis or at least on autopilot?

Don’t worry, I got you covered because I’m going to help you save your marketing budget for a whole year plan.

Sounds exciting?

Paid ads are great and it is guaranteed to help you drive leads. Leads, not sales. There’s a huge difference. Leads from paid traffic will take time but leads from organic traffic, surely won’t.

Why? Because they already know what you do, what the results you get and only a matter of time because you can make a sale. “make a sale

But first, I assume this.

I’m pretty sure you already know who your target audience is. That means, you know what they need, what to give them and how to talk to them.

So let’s go dive in.

1. Make an Online Portfolio

Do you have a history of your work? Make it available for your target customers or clients so they can get ideas of what you can do for them. You can put them on your website, your social media channels and you can also have it printed if you have a budget.

2. Ask Your Clients for Referrals

Referrals are great. You can always get referrals from every client you service as long as you request them to do so. They probably won’t do it actively but hey, wait until their networks or connection see your work. You’ll be the first one in mind they’d think about.

It’s about trust being built overtime through your remarkable work.

3. Use an Email List

This never gets old and is always true. If you have an email list, you can always send them a picture or result of your work. You don’t need to sell them the same thing but write a story out of it so you won’t make it sound like you’re selling.

But you are selling, they just don’t know it yet.

For instance, you are a freelance writer, share your statistics and how you did it. They probably won’t buy from you yet but it’s a stage 1 barrier you’re breaking through between you and your client.

4. Go Viral without Ads Spent

There’s a way for that but keep it a secret.

Going viral on social media is good for business. So always do the following whenever you post on your social media channels:

  • Use attractive marketing headlines
  • Don’t make your post boring
  • Use imagery or videos
  • Always use text but keep it short

5. Use Search Engines

Search engines are a great source of traffic and leads. It’s just paid ads because they never heard of you before and yet they click on your website and view your work.

The only problem is you need to be on top before you get the traffic you need. To do this, you need to target what keywords are your dream customers likely to use like “how to get organic leads” “how to generate leads”, “small business ideas for women” sort of thing like that.
