Infographic: 7 Ways to Generate Leads

7 Ways to Generate Leads

The infographic above shows or summarizes the 7 ways to generate leads. The picture is self-explanatory and rather detailed. First is to create high performing landing pages. To drive an action from your ideal customer, make sure your landing page has the following:

1. Headline – make sure it’s attention-grabbing
2. Copy – with at least 2 clear calls to action
3. Calls to Action – in prominent places
4. Contact Form – should be targeted
5. Buttons

Host a purchase-driven web

Host a webinar with the aim to sell your products or services while educating your audience at the same time. This is shown to be quite effective if you have the gift of the gap and selling tactics. I have been drawn to purchase from such webinars in the past, but when I view the contents, they are somehow below expectations for some of the products that I had purchased. Perhaps the content does not justify the cost. But then again, these are master sellers and pros in their respective niches. One has to start somewhere as a beginner.

However, by adding value and solving their problem, your audience is more likely to receive your message more willingly. Also make sure your slides include contact details throughout.

Utilise products or services Explainer Videos

For the record, 1/3 of online activity is spent on watching videos. People are more likely to engage with your product or service if there is a video explaining how it works and the benefits it adds to their lives. By using video, you are making it easier for your customer to make a purchasing decision.

1. Keep it Short
2. Repurpose and Reuse
3. Make sure it has a clear call to action

Create Email Nurture Campaigns

There is a huge opportunity to build brand awareness for your SME which in turn will help drive leads. By carrying out nurture campaigns, you’ll be able to nudge your customer to complete the desired action.

Carry Out Social Media Competitions

Social media competitions offer a great opportunity to capture the data of your ideal customer. Offer them something shareable as a prize and you’ll be increasing your brand reach as well.

1. To drive leads, make sure you CAPTURE entrants’ data and target them later.
2. Make your entry mechanism simple.
3. Offer a Prize! People are more likely to share on social media, increasing your reach.

Answer Customer Problems with Long-Tail Search Engine Queries

Long-tail search engine queries tend to be problem-based. Offer a solution and that customer is more likely to buy from you in future.
Tips include:

1. Create blog posts that respond to the long-tail query.
2. Showcase your product or service as the solution.
3. Build TRUST: always offer helpful content to your customers.

Write In-depth How-to Guides

Just like your other problem-solving content, it’s important to create content with depth. By building a sense of trust with your customers, you’re more likely to earn repeat business. Tips include the below:

1. Make sure your design is Eye-catching.
2. Make your Guide easy to understand.
3. Make your Guide easy to download.

So there sums up the 7 Ways to Generate Leads.

Forgiveness is for the Undeserving

Forgiveness is for the undeserving

Then Peter came to Him and said, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?”
Matthew 18:21

FORGIVENESS IS FOR THE UNDESERVING

Peter asked the Lord how often he should forgive his brother. The Lord’s answer to him was simple: Up to 70 times seven times (see Matthew 18:22). In other words, all the time!

“Well, Pastor Prince, he does not deserve my forgiveness.”

Neither did you deserve God’s forgiveness.

There is not a single person alive or dead who did not break all 10 of God’s commandments. There is no such thing as a “partial sinner” or “great sinner.” All of us were great sinners when Jesus saved us. And when we realize that we are forgiven much, we will love much (see Luke 7:47).

“Pastor Prince, how can you say that I have broken all of God’s commandments? I have never committed adultery.”

My friend, Jesus said, “If you lust after a woman in your heart, you have already committed adultery with her” (see Matthew 5:28). That is God’s standard. The man looks outward, but God looks inward at the heart. Moreover, if you break one law, you are guilty of all (see James 2:10). So everyone has broken all of God’s commandments. Everyone is a great sinner.

Now, you are no longer a sinner if you have received Christ as your Savior. You are a new creation. But you were a great sinner and God forgave you your huge debt through the death of His Son.

So if someone has wronged you, tell yourself this: “I did not deserve God’s forgiveness, but He forgave me through Christ. So I forgive this person also.” If you say something like, “He does not deserve it,” it makes no sense. Forgiveness is not for people who deserve it. If they deserve anything, it is punishment. But forgiveness means that you extend grace—undeserved favor—like how God extends the undeserved favor to you.

Beloved, if you choose to hold on to bitterness, no one suffers but you. You lose your peace, then possibly your health. It is just not worth it. God says to you, “Let go. Forgive them their debts, just as I have forgiven you yours.”

Taste and See that the Lord is Good

In the northern hemisphere, winter is just around the corner; and so is Christmas! The season of love and giving is coming. Jesus came that all may have life and have it more abundantly. The resurrection power of Jesus redeemed mankind from the curse of Adam’s fall. For those parents with small kids, teach them in the way they should go (The Biblical way) so that when they are old, they will not depart from it. When the hurricanes and winds blow (like problems and illnesses), they will stand firm on solid ground and not be blown away like a house of straws!

Now Faith is the confidence in what we hope for

My favorite verse as a student is this: Philippians 4:13 – I can do All things through Christ who strengthens me..

Encourage your children to explore the New Testament which is after the birth of Jesus Christ as compared to the Old Testament which is of Moses Law, The 10 Commandments, etc. But it is good to know some history before we can appreciate the New Testament of unmerited favor, love and divine help, especially in times of need.

Jesus Blood is on the Mercy Seat

Jesus blood is on the Mercy Seat

Leviticus 16:14He shall take some of the blood of the bull and sprinkle it with his finger on the mercy seat on the east side, and before the mercy seat he shall sprinkle some of the blood with his finger seven times.

JESUS’ BLOOD IS ON THE MERCY SEAT

If you have watched the movie, Raiders Of The Lost Ark, you would remember that when the lid of the ark was lifted, strange-looking creatures floated out and destroyed the people around it. Interesting as it may be, this is biblically inaccurate—the ark of the Bible did not contain strange-looking creatures. What were the things inside it then?

There were three items in the ark: the golden pot of manna, Aaron’s rod and two stone tablets on which God had written the Ten Commandments (see Hebrews 9:4). These items are actually symbols of man’s rebellion. The golden pot of manna represents man’s rejection of God’s provision. The rod of Aaron represents man’s rejection of God’s leadership and the two stone tablets of God’s commandments represent man’s rejection of His standard of holiness.

But because God delights in mercy, He had these items put away in the ark and covered with the mercy seat, which had two cherubim on it (see Hebrews 9:5). And once a year, the high priest would enter the holy of holies where the ark was and sprinkle the blood of the animal sacrifice on the mercy seat. This means that God’s eyes, represented by the eyes of the cherubim, did not see the symbols of man’s rebellion. As long as the blood was there on the mercy seat, He saw only the blood and accepted the people.

Today, Jesus is our High Priest and He Himself has sprinkled His own blood on the true mercy seat in heaven—the throne of grace (see Hebrews 9:23–26). Interestingly, the number of times that the Old Testament high priest had to sprinkle the blood on the mercy seat—seven—speaks of Jesus’ perfect sacrifice. And because His sacrifice is perfect and He is perfect, we who are in Christ have perfect standing forever before God!

My friend, as you come to God today, don’t worry about falling short of His standard of holiness. He does not see your sins (see Hebrews 8:12, 10:17). He sees His Son’s blood on the mercy seat. You have a perfect standing before Him forever!

When God Ran

When God Ran

“But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring out the best robe and put it on him and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet.
Luke 15:22

WHEN GOD RAN

If you are a believer, you are probably familiar with the touching story of the prodigal son that Jesus shared. Who do you think the father in the story represents? Jesus’ Father in heaven, of course. Jesus was giving us a picture of His Father, who is also our Father.

In the story, the father was seen running toward his son, who was returning home (see Luke 15:20). Do you realize that God is never described as being in a hurry in the Bible? He is always cool and composed. The only time He is portrayed as being in a hurry is in this story. Though improper in Jewish culture, the father held up his robe and ran. Where was he running to? Why was he in such a hurry?

The father was in a hurry because he had seen his son, who was still a long way from home. He was running toward his son as he could not wait to embrace and kiss his child again.

The father was in a hurry to clothe his son with the best robe. My friend, our Father has put the best robe—the robe of righteousness—on us. In doing so, He has reinstated us as sons of the Most High God, a position which we had lost when Adam fell.

The father was in a hurry to put a ring on his son’s hand. Like the authority that is invested in the signet ring of a rich man’s son, our Father is eager to put back into our hands the authority to invoke His name, so that we can walk in dominion every day.

The father was in a hurry to put sandals on his son’s feet to assure him that he was still his son—only servants went about barefoot. Our Father never wants us to feel like hired servants or outcasts. We are always His sons.

Beloved, if the Father appears to be in a hurry, it is only because He is in a hurry to assure you of your position as His precious child!

How Tender is God’s Heart Towards You

How Tender is God's Heart Towards You

that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
Ephesians 2:7

HOW TENDER IS GOD’S HEART TOWARD YOU

Have you ever blown things out of proportion and gotten angry with God when you were going through a trying time? This happened to Jesus’ disciples when a storm hit them hard. In their fear of drowning, they cried out to Jesus, who was getting some much-needed sleep in the boat, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?” (Mark 4:38).

For accusing Him of not caring, you would think that they received a rebuke from Jesus. But it was the wind which received His rebuke, and a great calm followed (see Mark 4:39). Because of His tenderness toward His own, Jesus did not waste time taking offence. Instead, He wasted no time taking care of the problem that had caused His disciples so much anxiety and fear.

This also happened to two sisters, Martha and Mary, who did not hesitate to let Jesus know how they felt when He finally showed up days after their brother Lazarus had died. Both sisters made the same remark to Him: “Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died” (John 11:21,32).

Both sisters had seen Jesus’ miracles of mercy and love. Now, in their grief, they focused on how He could have prevented their brother’s death, but did not. They did not know His heart—how tender it was toward them and how His help would never fail them, but would even extend to raising their dead brother (see John 11:41–44).

Beloved, your heavenly Father sees you trying to stay afloat when you are in the midst of a storm. He sees you trying to provide for yourself and your family, and thinking, “If I don’t take care of these things, no one else will!” And He wants you to know how tender His heart is toward you, how He is not offended by all the bad things you have ever said of or to Him. He wants you to know how much He wants to and will help and bless you. So let go and experience afresh the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward you!

Don’t Laugh at Other People’s Fall

Above is an Instagram video of Millionaire Mentor giving sound advise that I hope you can learn something from. It is short and inspirational, to say the least. I subscribe to it and check my account by scrolling down almost on a daily basis and it has motivated me to better myself each day. Don’t mix with jerks who pull you down like what happened to me in the past. Instead, learn from better mentors who are sincere and willing to inspire and teach through their recorded videos on Youtube or Instagram. Stay away from negative people and mix with those who are of the same mindset, those who hustle daily and don’t expect any handouts. Those who succeed by meritocracy and not kleptocracy, etc. Encourage and help each other too.
