Powerful offers that drive your audience to take action can be used in your business to do a myriad of things. They're great for moving old or overstocked product, overcoming buyer objections, eliminating purchase risk, or even just building your customer database.
Well-crafted offers are also fantastic lead generators - which is what we're going to focus on in this E-Class. In this case, the offer is designed to get potential customers to identify themselves, not to close sales. Once those potential customers have identified themselves - they've taken action to redeem the offer - they enter the formal sales process and you can convert them into a loyal customer.
Offers designed to be lead generators drive more qualified prospects to your business. They weed out the buyers who would take advantage of your offer, but who are not otherwise a part of your target market.
I'm going to show you how to speak to your target market's "hot buttons" and emotional motivators, instead of simply crafting an offer based on financial savings or bonuses. Let's get started!
Some of the people who will call you or visit your business will never buy from you no matter how good your sales scripts are or how much time you spend overcoming their objectives. There are a variety of reasons for this - and you'll never eliminate all of these people - but you will need to focus on bringing in more of the people who are ready to buy.
The good news is you have spent so much time and energy cultivating a comprehensive knowledge of your target market, that you're in a great position to increase the number of qualified leads you bring into your business.
How do You Get Qualified Leads?
Today I’d like to teach you about the three most important start up marketing tools you need to get and keep new customers.
If time were money, how would you manage yours?
Time is far more precious than money. There are a finite number of days that you will spend on this earth, while money is something you can usually get more of.
If you are 35 years old with a life expectancy of 75... you have already spent 12,775 days on Earth and have 480 months left to fulfill your life destiny. If you plan to retire at the age of 50 you have 180 months to make enough money to retire (a million dollars doesn't put a dent in retirement nowadays...) and in those months 1,440 days are weekends... so you have 3600 workdays to make it all happen. What are you waiting for... time to stop confusing being busy with being successful!
The fact is that many business owners - like yourself - actually manage their money as though it is more precious than their time. They started the business to choose their own hours, spend more time with their family, and be their own boss. But, somewhere along the way the only goals that mattered became the financial ones. Or, the only item worth measuring and managing was money.
Your time will never be managed for you - you have to make a decision to choose to spend your time wisely. To take ownership of your own schedule, and use the power you have to change what isn't working. I'll show you a bunch of tools to get you started, but first let's take a look at what your time is worth first, to attach time to money.
