This is the 2nd lesson in a 55-lesson series of our Internet Marketing Mindset eCourse.
Is Your List Killing You?
Individuals don’t just like to hand out their email addresses online (and with good reason today!) But if you offer them something in return, such as an enlightening newsletter, a free eBook, a forum membership or free software, they’ll be much more likely to give you their email address when subscribing.
However, do you know why most internet marketers have a tendency to fail? It’s because they bank on their name list a bit much. If I were you, the 1st thing I would do is to get rid of that list of phone numbers you are currently holding on to.
Here’s why – your name list will sooner or later poop out.
The definition of insanity is – doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results (this phrase is ironically echoed again and again in internet marketing circles!)
There are a lot of ways to generate new targeted leads on the Net.
You don’t need to meet strangers in a party or collect call cards in supermarkets because it’s a very slow and time devouring way to seek targeted leads for your internet marketing business.
Studies show that the number one issue facing small business owners today is not having enough qualified prospects. Every small business owner would like to have more high-quality candidates, but most either don’t have the time, or just don’t have the expertise!
In any given industry, there are an infinite number of potential lead sources that can be used to supply your business with highly-qualified sales leads. A few are very simple and inexpensive to set-up, others are more intricate. Some will give you a trickle of leads, others will produce a flood.
Do you recognize why Google is making so much money? It’s because they deliver the most relevant results for the individuals punching in the keywords.
Individuals pay Google good money as they bring the most relevant, most targeted paying leads for their business needs.
It proves one thing – tapping into the power of Google is just one of the ways of constructing a good lead generation system, bringing in the best leads and prospects for your internet marketing business.
The day you stop acquiring new leads, your entire business will come to a grating halt – so by establishing a good lead generation system on autopilot, your business will grow by itself, long after you’ve stopped working on it directly!
