Want More Leads? Try Strengthening Your Magnet

April 11, 2017

Before we show you how to get more leads for your business, let’s take a moment to think about why people would want to give you their information.

Why You Need to Think About Your Offer

No matter what type of industry you’re in, your customers are searching for a solution to a problem they're facing. And if your business can offer them that first step to a solution, they’re more likely to purchase more from you or purchase a higher dollar offer.

Testing Different Lead Magnet Offers

During the customer journey, they go through several stages: Awareness, Evaluation, and Conversion.

Once your customer knows what their problem is (Awareness), they will be searching for ways to solve this problem (Evaluation).

During this Evaluation stage, your business has the perfect opportunity to build leads by offering something of value to these prospects.

These types of offers can differ based on what your business is but could include:

  • Case studies
  • White papers
  • Free guides
  • Free eBooks
  • Audios
  • Videos
  • Cheat sheets
  • Templates
  • Toolkits
  • And more…

These offers, if valuable enough to your prospects, will be great tools in capturing new leads – hence why they’re often referred to as a Lead Magnet.

Lead Magnets will be most effective if they are,

  • Relevant to your higher dollar core offer
  • Ultra-specific
  • Priceless
  • Easily "consumed"

For example, let’s look at Sales & Marketing Technologies latest lead magnet, 12 Ways to Get Your Business Growing Again.

And then use that offer to increase leads!
