Learn The 3 Steps to Email Marketing

Learn The 3 Steps to Email Marketing

I recently did a webcast entitled “5 Marketing Tactics to Grow Your Business”.

I went over 5 different marketing tactics that you can use to grow your business and increase your sales.

 

In this segment, I talked about 3 Steps to Email Marketing.

Key Points on 3 Steps to Email Marketing:

  1. Learn the 3 steps to email marketing
  2. Several different services you can use

3 Steps to Email Marketing transcript:

How do you do this (Email Marketing)? I call it the 3 S’s.

  • You sign up for a service.
  • You set it up.
  • You create content and start sending it out.

The key to doing this well is being consistent. When I say sign up for a service, I’m talking about using a legitimate email marketing service. I use MailChimp and I also use a service called AWeber. I like both of them. They’re very similar, but each one has certain advantages. I use one or the other depending on my needs — and the people I’m marketing to.

Go look around. Go to Google and type “email marketing.” There’s IContact. There’s VerticalResponse. There’s Constant Contact. I’ve used a couple of those, as well. My favorite is actually MailChimp. I think it’s one of the best ones out there.

Why Cold Calling Sucks

Cold Calling Sucks

Is there truly anything more aggravating in sales the cold calling?

The one thing that I despise the most in sales is cold calling.  Picking up the phone, dialling for dollar, interrupting someones day only to get them pissed off at me and hang up the phone.

So why doesn’t cold calling work?

According to a Baylor University study on cold calling for realtors, a person doing cold calling is successful 0.3% of the time on average.

This means that for someone to get 1 meeting they would have to make 333 calls.  On average in an eight hour day, this would mean that a person has to dial one person every 1 minute 41 seconds.

Now the other thing you have to take into account is the fact that you actually have to do face to face sales calls during the day so let’s say your sales calls are going to take an hour to an hour and a half each day (remember you had to dial 333 people to get that one meeting) you now have 6 1/2 to 7 hours in which you have to cold call.

If you use 6 1/2 hours that means you have to make a call everyone 1 minute and 17 seconds with no breaks or no pauses just to get 1 appointment with a prospect.

There’s another problem you’re not going to be calling the same 333 people every day.  Let’s say you call these people once a month, you now have to come up with a list of 6660 potential prospects that you can cycle through on a monthly basis.  The 6660 figure comes from 333 calls per day times 20 workdays in the month.  You are going to have to build this list and maintain it to, so who knows how long that will take each day.

So lets add this up:

  • You have to make 333 calls to book 1 appointment
  • You have to make a one call approximately every 1 minute and 30 seconds
  • You have to have a prospect list or 6660 people or companies that you are continually updating

If you have a close rate of 20% then you need to call 1665 people just to make a sale.

That’s why cold calling sucks.

There is an easier way to find clients rather than cold calling.

Key Points on A Great Way To Use Twitter For Marketing:

  1. How using live chat can help you quit cold calling and generate more sales leads
  2. Why cold calling doesn’t work

How To Quit Cold Calling and Start Getting Qualified Sales Leads With Proactive Live Chat transcript:

If you cold call 100 businesses today, you’ll be lucky to see 1-3% of the people actually pick up the phone. That’s just pick up the phone. I’m not even talking about booking a meeting. It is so tough to get ahold of people. Cold calling is truly dead.

When people come to your site, they already have a need. They’re looking and they’re exploring. If you have LiveChat, you can get in front of them, engage with them, and turn them into a sales lead. What we see is about a 25% uptake when you start to engage with these people.

I know where I would want to focus my effort. I would want to focus it on people that actually have a need and are actively looking for a product right now.

When John Leishman and I started going down the path of looking at different brands of live chat software, we found that none of them met our needs. Why? Because you have to be proactive. Proactive means you have to pop up and ask the visitor on your site, “Do you need help? Are you looking for something?”

Within about 10 to 15 seconds after someone hits your website, we poke up a live chat. It’s automated. Then anywhere from 30 seconds to a minute later, we’ll poke it up again. Usually a minute and a half to three minutes after that, we’ll put LiveChat up a third and final time. We don’t bring it up again.

When someone’s on your site for two to three minutes and you have that third proactive live chat come up, typically you’ll turn about 80-95% of those people into qualified sales leads.

It’s simply tremendous and it works. John Leishman uses it on his website, Geeks On the Way. Go to geeksontheway.com. You can engage with his staff there and just see how it works. He’s generating some serious return on his investment from that.

Learn A Great Way To Use Twitter For Marketing transcript:

Now I’m going to cover Tactic No. 3, which is Twitter.

My impression of Twitter is I don’t think a lot of people use it correctly and for the right purpose. Here’s why I say this.

Quite honestly, I’m not interested in reading someone’s tweet that they’re in a coffee shop and enjoying their coffee. What do I want to read? I want to read content that’s valuable to me. I create content that I believe is of value to people and that pushes them through to my website.

Think about it this way. I’ve got something that says, “Learn 10 Ways to Do This.” I push people through to the website and then they can see what I have to offer. Or I can capture a name. Or I can retarget them by putting a Google Remarketing ad on a website they visit. To me, that’s the way you use Twitter for generating sales leads.

In addition, if you are sending messages out about your product or service, you should be sending two to five additional pieces of content from other people. You want to tweet relevant information that shows it’s not all about you.

In this segment, I talked about How To Get Email Newsletter Subscribers.

Key Points you should think about for email marketing:

  1. You should try to get anyone you can on an email marketing list
  2. Send emails on a consistent basis
  3. Experiment with what works for your readers

How To Get Email Newsletter Subscribers:

If you’re a small business owner, you should ask anyone you come in contact with if you can put them on an email list so you can market to them on a regular basis. I do that all the time, and very rarely does anyone ever say no.

Of course, I also tell them that if they don’t like what I send them, there is an Unsubscribe option at the bottom of my emails. They can get off the list anytime they want.

How To Generate Sales Leads By Multiplying Your Marketing Efforts

 How To Generate Sales Leads By Multiplying Your Marketing EffortsHow To Generate Sales Leads By Multiplying Your Marketing Efforts

I recently did a webcast entitled “5 Marketing Tactics to Grow Your Business”.

I went over 5 different marketing tactics that you can use to grow your business and increase your sales.

 

In this segment, I talked about How To Generate Sales Leads By Multiplying Your Marketing Efforts.

The key points in this video includes:

  1. How to tie together several marketing tactics to increase your marketing efforts
  2. How To Generate Sales Leads with different tools that you can use

How To Generate Sales Leads By Multiplying Your Marketing Efforts:

Now what I’m going to talk about is how do you tie all this together?

I’ve gone through five tactics here. I’m going to show you a process and something that I use basically every day to generate sales leads.

The first thing I do is I send out a tweet. In the upper left-hand corner there, I’m using a tool called Hootsuite to send something out. This is for my 25 Must Have Sales and Marketing Tips. Once that tweet goes out, it drives people to a landing page, and you’ve seen this landing page already.

I have my email marketing system tied into this landing page so that when you hit that YES, SEND ME THE FREE EBOOK, I capture your name and your email. In fact, a lot of you guys that signed up for the webinar today — it’s the same thing. You put your name and your email in. You’ve got the information about the webinar and we have a record of everything that happened. And now you’re on the list.

Then I send you an e-book. Because you’ve hit this page, you’ve now been cookied, as well, and I can start displaying ads to you. I’m not doing it right now, but I can actually start displaying ads to you. Where you’ll see my ads coming up in the future are I’ll put stuff up on my monthly webinars that are coming. It will just be a reminder when people hit the website.

The interesting about my remarketing. I’ve got remarketing hooked up on my YouTube account, on my podcasting account, on my different websites and such. I have a base of roughly 350,000 people that I’ve actually collected in my remarketing. To me, that’s a huge amount of people that I can be remarketing to or sending ads to that are specifically interested in what I’m marketing.

Now, once you see that, I’m going to drive you back to a landing page, where you may register for an event. Anyone that’s registered for this event today through the landing page I have — I’ll send you notices in the future with log-in details, and the like, so you’ll be able to get in. That pushes you back through that landing page.

Any future landing pages you may hit on my website is going to have that LiveChat, so I can engage with you, as well. I’m tying every single piece of this together so that I can increase my opportunities or my likelihood of generating far more sales leads off my website.
