I have no idea where you are with your business, but I’m sure you’ve already heard about a million times you have to collect leads if you really want to make it happen…
…or I should probably say – you’ve heard money’s in the list, it doesn’t really matter, whichever of these you’ve heard, it’s true.
You have to collect leads, lots of leads to make lots of money. Enough with the obvious and let me tell you how to double your leads by NOT getting more traffic.
It’s not as easy as it was a few years ago to get people’s emails, but it’s like that with everything ever since everybody with a computer started trying to build a business online.
To become popular you have to either have a killer blog, or killer social media profiles.
Ever since Facebook came along, most people have been choosing social media instead of blogs… because Facebook is where everybody is at, plus it’s kinda easier and less work to market via FB and Twitter.
Me, I like building assets, which is why I have this awesome blog.
It took me about two years to make it what it is though. If you go this way, you have to be patient and prepare yourself for a lot of work. Once you build a profitable blog, stick a fork in you, you are done LOL…
…you’ll make all kinds of cash, if you are not into blogging, use the form to your right and I’ll send you badass info how to make money without a blog like this:
If you choose social media, you don’t really need this article, you need to head to the social media marketing section and see how it’s done.
If you want to double your leads using the power of your blog, here’s EXACTLY what you should do.
1 Buy OptinMonster
This is the ultimate lead generation tool! It’s a bit more expensive, yet I’ve tested a looooot of stuff and this app is superior to everything on the market.
It’s just PERFECT!
Those guys that made it (I think one of them owns wpbeginner.com) know marketing… and I really mean it. Ever since I installed it on this blog, I’ve gotten like twice as many leads…
…I’m not kidding at all, to tell you the truth I was amazed such little things like that colorful line on top of my popup can make such a huge difference. I guess marketing is something you learn your whole life. 🙂
And to squeeze it in here, whoever says popups don’t work (cause I’ve seen a lot of people say it), or they alienate people, is a horrible marketer and you should never listen to them… not if you want to collect leads and make money.
Popups are AWESOME and will make you tons of cash.
It’s not just the popup though, the app has the whole package: sidebar widgets, footer forms, after post forms, you name it. The code is perfectly written and it will take you like 5 minutes to fire it up double your leads.
If you don’t have that much money to buy the versions with all the features, at least get the basic version and install the lightbox, or go read this.
After you install it you will be amazed how vital marketing optimization is.
2 Optimize your blog for speed
Speed is even more important (or maybe as important) than your design. People usually wait about 2 seconds for a page to load… after that they either go to a different page, or get less interested in whatever is on the opened page.
If you want to double your leads, you have to make your pages load as fast as possible… and that doesn’t necessarily mean you need a private server, that means you need to adjust your .htaccess file, optimize your CSS, HTML, enable compression, leverage browser cashing etc. etc.
If you are not a tech savvy, you can go with WPengine, they do all that shit for you.
3 Marketing copy
You should really write your form (lighbox, sidebar etc.) copy to get as many emails as possible.
Read this article to learn how:
Don’t just be like:
“get free updates”
“join 100 00 more subscribers”
cause that’s boring and really makes people do nothing… lead with benefits, tell people why they should get on your list, let them know you are their guy (take a look at my forms and you will see what I mean).
Most people in our industry are so scared not to look like the next sales person, they put up the ugliest most boring optin forms on their sites and wonder why they get almost nothing out of them. Your forms should look awesome and you need to have several of them on your site unless you wanna run it for fun.
Remember that people love to buy, they just don’t like to be sold, think about that for a sec and you will understand how to write awesome marketing copy that will always get emails.
4 If you already have enough traffic, then sit back, relax and watch the leads come in.
If you need more traffic, go read the article I wrote the other day: 6 Ways To Get Traffic In Unlimited Quantities and you will see how to get all the traffic you want.
That’s it, that’s how easy it is to double you leads, all it takes is a few tweaks in your marketing design and site speed. If you want to go even further and start getting hundreds of leads per day, fill out the form below this article and I’ll send you info that will make you a marketing monster in no time.
