Linkedin is a great platform to prospect on and to generate leads to businesses. Linkedin may be a little over looked by some marketers, but it is actually aa very valuable platform to use when wanting to generate leads, and also free leads. I have written an earlier blog post involving Linkedin lead generation, but this blog post includes other tips then my previous blog post. The earlier blog post involved search engine optimization and how to set up a professional looking social profile.
What to search for
So how do you find good prospects on Linkedin? Well you can for instance search for names of mlm companies and other online businesses. Then you will find people that are working with those particular companies, or that have been working with them in the past. You should add new contacts daily , but do not add more contacts then 25 per day, especially not if you have a free Linkedin account. Linkedin may send you a warning or block you from adding more people if you are adding to many per day. You can also search for the names of mlm companies that no longer exist. Because people that have been working with for instance Vemma, may still be interested in making money online still.
When it is time for messaging prospects
Before you start to message anyone that you want to add as a contact, make sure to go through their profile,to see if you have common interests. Then you can mention that when you start your conversation with them. You should always do your messaging with your cellphone. Now why is that? Because people usually open audio messages in a higher degree then regular text messages. So focus on sending out voice messages.
When they don’t respond…
When you have sent out voice messages and you the follow day notice that they haven’t responded, then here is what you should do. Write them a message saying ”whats your thoughts on this?” Or ”do you agree?” This will awaken people curiosity and they may click and listen to your voice message.
Other ways of generating leads
You can also do article marketing on Linkedin to generate more leads. Make sure to add a lot of value in your articles and then share them on other social platforms such as Twitter. You can add a link embedded in your articles toa capture page so that you can buld your list. It is very important to actively build a list. You should also use the story feature and share content that you think is interesting to your contacts. Not every story needs to be about marketing , it can be about other things that is going on in society. Things that interest people. This strategy is a way of getting more eye balls on your profile and your content. I hope this will help you generating more free leads into your business.
Having a membership site or multiple membership sites, can really take your income and business to a whole new level. So what is a membership site? it is a site where you offer content or products and training, and people have to pay a fee to access that content of yours. You can have multiple of these membership sites within plenty of different niches if you want to. If you have a passion or certain interests, you can use those when starting to build your first member ship sites. However, you should have pretty much knowledge about the content and resources within that interest and passion of yours to make it work.
A different type of membership site
You can also use another type of model for your membership sites. That means that you will make your commissions and income later but first allow people free access to your content? What am I talking about? Well you could allow people free access to your site and content and this way build your list. And then you can promote a certain product or software or course or what ever to that list. Let us say that you are a writer and have published a new book, then you can use this strategy to promote that new book of yours. Just make sure that the content that people get access to for free is of great value and quality.
There is one model of a membership site that is called a hybrid. This means that you have different kind of content within maybe even within different niches on the same membership site.
If you have never created a membership site before this may seem a bit over whelming. But it does not have to be. There is a way where you now can start for free for 14 days and get help step by step to set everything up. You will get access to fast responding support as well all around the clock, 24/7. So yes creating a membership site can really impact your level of success and income. And it may seem a bit confusing and overwhelming if you are new to this. But again, there is help available.. Because you can even get help creating products for your site.So is starting a membership site something that you have thought about? Feel free to leave your comment to this blog post.
Social media platforms is a great place to connect with a lot of people on and these platforms are great when it comes to generate leads and sales as well. And using thses platforms with the strategies I will explain to you now, will not cost you anything because they are totally free ways of building your list and business.
Connecting with people
You should build your group of connections daily but never add more then 20 people per day. And also do not message them instantly when they have approved your friend request
Yes I know that other marketer instantly start to message people after they are connected with the new friend, but I would recommend that you avoid doing that. Give the mew connection time to check your profile out as well as your content so they can figure out who you are and what you so to say are about… About your profile, make sure that it is professional looking with a nice cover image showing what you are involved working with and what you have to offer. Also, enter a good description about your self on your profile and a link to a capture page. Then after you have waited a while to message your new contact / friend a while you can send them a welcome message but first make sure that you check out their profile to see if you have something in common. If you have, then make sure to mention that in your first conversation.
The follow up
There is a process to follow before you can present your offer to your prospects. First you must get to know them and build trust with them. Do not be in a hurry making the sale. that will just make people turn away from you. Learn more about them and yes focus more on them then the offer you have for them .
Find out if they are struggling with something, it could be lack of money or something else. This are their so called pain. Somewhere down the line after you have discovered their pain, you can offer a solution to that pain. That solution is something you will make money from if they take action on your offer. it can be a good idea to offer a free give away before you present your paid offer. It can be a free download and it can be a paid offer on the page where they access your free download. If you offer a free training of some kind then you can share additional training that they need to paya sum of money from on that same landing page. This so that you can increase your chances of getting a sign up to your business of course.
The power of stories
Make sure to take advantage of the story features on both Linkedin and Facebook to get your message out. The stories will generate more views and eyeballs on your content and profile and can lead to you generate more leads and sign ups into your business.
Social media is a gold mine when it comes to free strategies of generate leads through prospecting. This is most beneficial especially if you have a limited budget. Even if you do not have a limited budget you should use these free strategies a part from your paid ads to make additional income.
If you are ot sure what I mean that I am talking the reach you get on Facebook through organic traffic. So what is organic traffic? It is free traffic that you generate though for instance search engine optimization, and when people find your content after you ranked it well in the search results, well this is organic traffic. This is a free traffic strategy that can generate recurring leads for you.. But there are other ways to generate this organic traffic as well.
Optimizing your Facebook profile
You need to make sure that your Profile looks really professional otherwise people will not see you as an serious entrepreneur. Make sure to have a nice looking banner that shows what you have to offer , what you are working with/ on. It can also be a good thing to add your photo into that cover/ banner image.In the description of you cover you can offer a free give away through a link to a capture page, this so that you can build your list. Because you need to build your buyers list. That capture page link to your give away should be inserted at your profile description as well to optimize your list building. In your profile description ass a to the point description what you can do for people, what you have to offer to them.
Adding friends and the Facebook ALGORITHM
You are allowed to have 500 contacts on Facebook, and the more friends go have the more people you will reach with your posts. You should add up to 25 people each day, but it should be people that you believe have an interest in your type of content You can find those people in groups that has to do with your niche, where people wants to learn more about certain things in your niche for instance. Add members from these groups but do not add everyone from that group.
And do not spam them, build up a relationship with them and get to know them.But remember, only 10% of all your contacts will see your posts. So then you have to really make sure that they actually do see your posts. Therefor,before you post anything every day you need to comment on some of your friends post and alo you need to like those posts. This will make it so that you will receive more likes and comments on your own posts. You will also get more so called eye balls on your posts this way.
The different posts
The different posts you should create every day are;positive motivating post. life style posts and post where you teach people something. You can also every once in a while post proof of your results. Do not post results post too often but post the other types of post daily, because you need to be consistent with your posting.
This organic traffic strategy as lonmg as you are being consistent with it and putting in the work every day.
I am going to bring up both free blogs and paid options when it comes to starting a blog to be able to make money from it. The free blogs out there I would say is for you if you have a limited budget or just want to blog about your hobby or something like that. You can for instance then use Bloggers free blog owned by Google which you can get started with , the only thing you need then to sign up is a free Gmail account. Wix is a another alternative when it comes to free blogs.
But what is the best blog if you have a a goal to make money from your blogging.
My answer to that question is a WordPress blog. I will explain now why I am saying this…
One major benefit with a WordPress blog is that is highly customizable. But when it comes to getting that optimal ability to your blog then you need to go for a paid blog. You need to invest in a domain name with your own hosting so that you have the best options when it comes to customizing your blog anyway you want to. There are also other benefits with investing in a domain name, it is great for branding. you can have your own name in your domain name , or the niche you are blogging about.
When you have a to the point (quite short. it is good if its not more them 9 letters long) domain name it will also be easy for people to remember. It will also look better with a bought domain name then a long basic not very good looking domain name.You can start a free blog at WordPress.com but then you will not be able to add banners to promote different affiliate products for instance. You will not be able to set your design of your blog after your wishes. But when you get your domain name and hosting you will get that ability to have your blog look pretty much as how you want it to look.
What also is great with having a WordPress blog is that you will have access to a ton of plugins but free and also some plug ins that you need to pay a small fee to be able to use. these plug ins can help you to for instance improve your level of leads and commissions made though your blogging. No other blogging platform has as many plug ins as at WordPress. There are members at WordPress that actually creates plug ins themselves that you also can use.
About 30 % of all websites/blogs online is based on WordPress, so you can see now how popular WordPress really is? So yes, getting a WordPress blog with your domain name and hosting should be your first step if you want to make money blogging. Thankl you for reading this blog post. Have a great day.
Or more to the point; how to get more agency clients by using certain free methods, that is what I am going to share in todays blog post. Does it sound difficult and expensive to start a agency and getting clients? Well it does not have to be… There are free ways of generating paying clients, yes no out of pocket expense for you.
How to start
Maybe you are wondering what services you should provide in your agency business and if you have enough knowledge to start a agency? I am sure you have an interest that you have pretty much knowledge about that you can use to start up your own digital agency. Try also to think outside the box… Maybe you are good at blogging or website design or doing voice overs. There are so many things you can offer as a paid service. So think about what you are good at and do not think less of yourself when it comes to this. Believe in yourself and your ability.
Social sites such as Facebook is very powerful and useful when it comes to connecting with people to get paying agency clients. Here follows some steps you can follow regarding this… if you do not have a Facebook account then create one because it is free to do so. Connect with and add at least 20 new contacts every day. Make sure not to move to fast with presenting your offer. You should have been chatting with your prospects at least for one week before sharing any information about the services you have to offer. Create a relationship with people that you connect with and get to know them a bit. Focus more on their situation and story then your own. Do not focus so much on making the sales, focus on how you can help them. Yes I know we are here to make money, but do not just focus on the money. Over time you may realize what their so called pain is, and then you can present your services to them as a sort of solution for them to get out of that pain. To lose that pain.
Another way to connect with more people and to get more paying clients is to join Facebook groups. Join groups that has to do with the services you offer. It can be groups where people want to learn proper marketing, but this is only a example… Then add members of the groups, but do not add all of them. Also, do not spam them or start to pitch them. Instead use the tactic that I just describe to you about creating relationships with them. This strategy can of course be used on other social platforms as well, such as Linkedin for instance.

Why is that something you should care about? Well if you are a online marketer and/ or business owner then online presence management is something very important to have. Because if you do not have a website and/or a blog then you will lose out on a lot of costumers and business leads. And if people can not find you online, then you don’t exist.
Search engine optimization
When you want to be found online when people are doing a search on Google or other search engines involving certain keywords, then you want your website to be found high in the search results of course. So search engine optimization is a very important piece of the puzzle when you want more results and success for your business.
If you do not have the knowledge about applying search engine optimization to your website and blog, then you simply must have someone do that for you. You have to pay someone to to this for you. Because you can’t leave out Search engine optimization when successfully running a business online. Because then you will be doing all your hard work for your business for nothing really. Because you need to make so that people can easily find you and your business. And your websites, blog and other content will not get found without proper search engine optimization. At least not by the amount of people that you would like to.
The following steps
Once you have set up your new website and see some results coming in you might want to set up another website maybe within a different niche then your first website that you got set up. For a beginner this can feel a bit overwhelming because of the fact that you need to create a responsive website where peopole can buy your products, and then you have to buy hosting and domain names and maybe hire support staff for your website and much more. But there is a solution for all this so that you can have access to everything under one roof…

You can generate leads and sales for your business for free with the help of social media. So in todays blog post I will sharing my best social selling tips with you.
One thing that you must do to be able to get new paying clients as well as generating leads is to set up a profesional looking social profile. No matter if it is on Facebook or any other social site that you are doing your business on. Invest 5 dollars and buy a cover image on Fiverr for instance. You can have a good loking cover image/ banner created through Fiverr actually. Or if you have a limited budget you can create a pretty good looking cover inage at canva.com. You can create a free account there.
Make sure to add a good description on your profile about what you are working with and what you have to offer to poople. what you can help them with. Put a link toa landing page/ capture page in the description as well. because we need to builfd out list at all times.
Go through your featured images
If you are doing your business and marketing on Facebook. ,ake sure to have the right kind of images showing among your featured images. Only have pictures involving positive quotes/mindset pictures of yourself in which you are showing your lifestyle in. You may also want to include images of the services and products you offer among those images. Because again, you want your social profiles to look professional.
Do not be in a hurry.
Do not be in a hurry making that sale. First you need to connect with them and create a relationship with them by getting to know them better. You should have been chatting at least for one week with them before sharing any of your businesses and offers. Ask them about what they love doing and how they are doing and so on. If they should share about what they are struggling with then show that you can relate to their so called pain. If they say that they are struggling to make money then show that you can understand where they are coming from. Because you probably have struggled personally yourself at one point in your career. So that is a real true fact that you will have in common. Speaking of that having things in common; do not regard every prospect as a good potential business partner. Because if you do not have anything at all in common and do not share the same kind of views on mindset and so on, then that is not someone that you want to be partnering with in business. especially not if you notice that they have a really negative mindset.
Type of content
The types of post and content you should create is within 3 category’s Lifestyle post, motivational post, result posts and post where you share value and teach people something.. About result posts, do not post those too often but it is okay to post them every now and then. This to make people more interested in your business and offers. Make at least one post a day , try to make it two post a day. This to get more so called ” eye balls” on your profile and content. A thing to have in mind is never to post anything about politics and religion, that can be sensitive subjects. So avoid those two subjects.
Like and comment
To get more exposure to your own content and profile, make sure to like and comment on other peoples posts on Facebook before posting your own new content. This can radically increase your number of likes and comments and as a results more people can see that content of yours.. That has to do with the Facebook algorythm. So apply what I have been sharing here in my social selling tips, to get more leads and also sales intpo your business. Thank you for reading.
Using Facebook live is a powerful way to let people get to know you better and also to help you generate leads to your business. And it can also of course that you will make more sales.
So now let us get into my Facebook tips for beginners.
Now I want to give you some advice if you are new to marketing or doing Facebook lives. It can be quite common that people are a bit nervous when first starting out making videos or Facebook lives. people may be afraid of being rejected or being made fun of. But you need to see pass that and work on your mindset and see things in another perspective. When it comes down to it you must try to ignore any possible silly remarks, because those negative people do not pay your bills, and you are here to make a living as a marketer. Not all people out there are negative and bad, there are a lot of great people that are willing to listen and learn. Willing to listen to you… And never let any negative people stop you from reaching your goals and what you want to achieve.
The first thing I want to tell you about doing Facebook live is that you need to have your cellphone vertical and make sure you holding your phone in the right position before starting your live stream. Do your best to be steady on your hand and it is even better if you invest in a phone holder so that you do not have to hold it in your hand, then you can talk freely having it stand for instant on a table. These holders are pretty inexpensive.
The subject line
Never do a Facebook live without a head line. Because when people see your live they will not hear you until they activate the sound for your live, so therefor they do not know what you are talking about if you do not have a subject line. Write your subject line in a way that will awaken peoples curiousity. It can involve solving a so called pain they have. Such as lack of money or if they want to be able to have more freedom in their lives.
What’s in the background?
Make sure that there are not some clothes lying around in your background or that it in some other ways looks untidy and so on. Because you need to have a professional appearance in your Facebook lives. And do not sit in a sofa recording your live especially if its a bit bad lighting or such. It does not look professional to be recording form a sofa. Sit at a table or in front of your computer.
Give it time
Do not get discouraged if you do not get that many views on your lives. Nobody gets that many views when first starting off. But do not give up, be peristent and over time you will see an increase ion views to your Facebook lives. You could build upa big following this way, which mean more money in the bank for you.
We all need leads , we all need a consistent stream of new leads to build our list. And now I am going to give some tips about how to generate leads for free online. So about free leads, isn’t it so that free ways of generating leads takes a whole lot of effort and plenty of time before you can see results? Not always…I have blogged about organic traffic before and that is what I recommend if you want to tap into free ways of generating leads for your business. Not all organic traffic takes time before you see any major results through your efforts.
Your social profile can be a gold mine
One way to generate that organic traffic that not everyone maybe are using, is optimizing your profiles on different social sites. Let us talk about Facebook for instance; if you brand yourself the right way and connect with people and create a good relkationship with them,then you can have a lot of leads coming into your funnel actually. Do you need to det ip a Facebook cover and at that cover you should write something about what you have to offer, but also in a way that awakens peoples curiosity. A extra benefit is if you include your photo on that cover as well. You should add more people daily, people that are into marketing and or making money online. Or it can be people that are new to online marketing but have said that they are interested in getting started with it and want guidance.
The next step
When you have generated some sales through your organiuc free traffic, then invest that moneyinto paid traffic,so that you can build your list and income faster. You may want to continue using organic traffic even when you have a steady flow of ales coming in, because organic traffic if it is done in the right way, can be really powerful. Now if you are interested to get in on a free training regarding all this with organic traffic with no strings attached, then go here… This free training is only available for a short time. So if you are interested make sure to grab your free access now.
If you have a limited budget then organic traffic is the second bbest after paid traffic. But when you buy traffic through a solo ad vendor for instance, make sure to research the vendor first to make sure you get quality traffic.
