As much as you need to know how to run your company, you also need to know how your competitors run their companies. Competitor research is an important aspect in running companies, unless you’re monopolizing a certain industry, knowing what your competitors are doing definitely helps how you can improve on your business. Having information about what your competitors are doing right, and what your competitors are doing wrong, will help you layout your own business more competitively.
Optimize On-Site And Off-Site Seo
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is an amazing tool that helps you get more leads and more clients faster than traditional methods. Optimizing both on-site SEO and off-site SEO will help you put your company out there on the internet. Using backlinks and optimizing keywords backed up by your keyword research does more work than you know.
Leave More Digital Footprints
Aside from optimizing your keywords inside your website, leaving your footprints all over the internet helps you put your website on the front page of the search engine. You can do that by making use of websites such as quora.com, reddit.com, and other forum sites. Answering comments, using backlinks in your comments that redirect to your site, and giving value with your answers help your site gain more traffic. You may not be actively seeking out clients, but you’re putting your company out there for interested and non-interested parties to see.
Cold And Warm Calling
As important as it is to market yourself to the right people, there are people out there who might need your services or might be interested but aren’t being targeted by your campaigns or are having trouble finding you because they just can’t get the keywords right. Cold calling is one tool that most, if not all, lead generation agencies use. However, one overlooked factor that most agencies do not use is warm calling. Warm calling is great because the people you’re contacting already have an idea or have already heard about you, which makes it easier to convert leads into customers.
Give Actual Value To Your Clients
Most salespeople would tell you that the important thing is to close the sale. We’d beg to disagree. The most important thing is to give value to your clients, whether or not they’ll close the deal. Show them the value that you can give to them while they aren’t your customer, actually, try and genuinely help them by giving your client tips on how to handle that, or try and actually analyze the situation they’re in, despite them not being sure about closing a deal with you. Give them something valuable, and they’ll think that despite them not being your client, you’re giving them value already, what more if they already signed a contract with you.
