Generating Leads with Social Media

Bringing in potential new customers. Before you launch your social media assault, this is a crucial preparation stage. To begin, make sure your profile is set up properly so that you can find organic leads. This is the first thing you should do before organizing any kind of social media strategy. You need to make sure that your profile has all the information people need to shop, subscribe to your newsletter, and so on.

There should be a way for customers to get in touch with you if they have any questions or concerns. Phone numbers, email addresses, and text message replies are all examples. If there are other options, include those as well.

You should also think about including custom Call-to-Action buttons that distinguish your profile from the rest. As an example, a “Sign Up” button on your Facebook profile is essential if you want to increase newsletter subscribers. Instagram and Facebook both include buttons labeled “Reserve” and “Get Ticket” that can be used to enhance consultation and ticket sales. 

Add links to your bio, just like other Instagram businesses do. Remember to add a note in each post letting people know to check out the bio for the link. Similar use of Call-to-Action buttons to direct users to relevant content is possible on social media platforms like LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Twitter.

Put out some quality lead magnets.

Customers can be persuaded to give up their data for free if you provide them the right incentive. Which begs the question: what is the best incentive? To effectively attract your ideal customers, you must provide them with a compelling offer (a “lead magnet”). Discover out what it is by observing their actions, whether it’s a discount on goods or services or even something for free. Webinars, white papers, and price reductions are occasionally included in these promotions. It is totally dependent on what it is that you are providing.

Examples of Lead Magnets for Local Businesses

  • If you’re a local law firm, you can provide a demand letter template or an ebook about the personal injury lawsuit process.
  • Restaurants can offer discounts or a recipe of a signature dish.
  • Hotels can give away curated itineraries or a local business guide.
  • Interior designers can create quizzes or checklists about home renovations.

Special Discounts Should Not Be Dismissed.

Find out what kinds of freebies will get people talking about your brand on social media.

Such promotions are common on social media and often include an entry form. To receive their free gift, they just need to fill out a short form. This provides both you and them with free knowledge and a bonus. Everyone benefits from this situation.

However, don’t forget to include a Share option on the submission form so that customers can easily post about the contest on their own social media pages. That way, you can spread the news without irritating people with constant pop-ups. On top of that, you get to potential buyers who are similar to your current clientele.

When you start giving out exclusive content, the form needs to be set up in a way that makes sense. Identify the items you intend to give. You can predict the type of audience you’ll get based on whether your  giveaway is educational or meant to entertain. You can then determine what kind of information gathering from them is appropriate.

Never underestimate the power of well-crafted clickbait.

Then there’s clickbait, the internet’s most dreaded monster. The internet is a place where everyone has a limited attention span, so you need captivating material. So, even if your material is top-notch, it may be challenging to attract the audience it merits. The post must include attractive photos and sharp writing. If you want to make useful links, your creative team better be on fire.

The value of the content you provide is also important. First things first: make the button noticeable. Every single one of your posts must have an obvious call to action that they can easily find and click on.

Share Customer Testimonials.

As a general rule, people put their faith in those they know personally or can relate to. Providing this evidence in testimonial form is an excellent strategy for winning over skeptical customers. It’s a terrific source of leads, and it converts well. Companies often achieve this by touting their satisfied customers who have bought their products or services. Unless your company is Apple, which is also its own brand ambassador, this will boost your company’s credibility.

Two-thirds of consumers are influenced to make a purchase after viewing video testimonials showing the positive effects a product or service had on a previous customer. Don’t waste such a simple opportunity.

Converting positive comments from customers into testimonials is one approach. Has anyone ever made an internet purchase without first seeing customer feedback?

Understand the benefits of Sequential Retargeting Ads.

Comedian Seth Meyers famously recalled that his father taught him not to tell a joke twice if it didn’t get a laugh the first time. It’s because listening to a bad joke twice is the worst possible punishment. That approach is also quite relevant in the realm of advertising.

Customers that visit your website and leave will be subjected to a series of advertising, a form of marketing known as “sequential retargeting.” This way, people won’t be subjected to the same advertisement over and over again. Instead, they are shown a set of ads that play in order.

This tactic boosts your ability to market on social media, allowing you to reach and re-engage users you may have missed the first time around. Or maybe they’re the ones who missed out on you.

This opens up a wide variety of opportunities for prospecting.

Let’s put it like this. There’s room for a quick entry form at the start of their browsing session. However, it’s likely that at first people will ignore it and move on to the rest of your site. If they are on the verge of leaving the website without completing the sign-up process for your newsletter, purchasing a service, or requesting a quote, you can remind them to do so. They may feel more comfortable sharing their data with you after reading your resources. This is an example of “retargeting,” in which the same group of people is given further attention.

This can be accomplished through blog articles and referral sites. Do not assume that everyone is already subscribed to your newsletter. If someone interacts with you in one form, that doesn’t mean they’ll do so in every possible medium. When compared to the click-through rate from display advertising, retargeting can enhance your lead generation opportunities by a multiplier of 10.
