    063 Tips for online prospecting!

    063 Tips for online prospecting!

    This week we talk about setting up a website infrastructure for prospecting...

    One challenge for online marketers is simplifying the complex.

    If your website has too many products, posts, or topics it can be confusing. Yet, if your website is too simple - how or why will people ever come to visit it?

    Today, we discuss solutions for bringing the two universes of complexity and simplicity together.

    062: Lead Magnet Prospecting - Part 3

    062: Lead Magnet Prospecting - Part 3

    This week I share some of the latest statistics on my foray into digital and "lead magnet" prospecting.

    As a part of such an effort, many questions arise;

    -What is a good test size to determine meaningful results?
    -How long should a test run?
    -What is the best means of building a relationship-bridge with site visitors?

    In the show, we also discuss the doubt-inducing thoughts that emerge in the difficult effort to spark traction from "zero to one".

    Such thoughts can tempt you to throw in the towel...

    But - spoiler alert - been there, done that with such thinking, and I will be sticking with it!

    Feel free to contact me with questions, thoughts, comments at:

    Enjoy the show and thanks for listening!

    059: How to refresh your prospect list.

    059: How to refresh your prospect list.

    In this week's show we discuss how to update and refresh your prospect list. We talk about sorting, eliminating duplicates, removing disqualified leads, removing do-not-call listings and establishing a call-ready list.

    A call ready list is key because it makes daily phoning less stressful and opens the door to establishing a daily routine for successful prospecting.

    Building a list takes some hard work, but it is well worth the effort. In the long run it saves you time, reduces your stress, and improves your focus.
