5 Obvious Ways To Get More Leads

5 Obvious Ways To Get More Leads

SEO Johannesburg professionalThis is not meant to be a fancy post with tons of details in it, but I get asked the same questions every day and thought that perhaps I should put the answers down here in a post.

This is all about getting rankings and more for your business. Rankings that will get your phone ringing all day.

There are 6 ways to get more leads for your business.

The obvious one is to advertise.

This is a tried and tested method and comes with some really great features.

In the “old days” the nearest you could niche down to your perfect buyer would be a magazine that might be where that person is a reader or a related newspaper. This was a costly method, but it did work OK.

Now you can go online and pay for very highly targeted adverts that can segment your potential buyers by using hundreds of modifiers and end up with your advert beeing placed in front of the perfect prospect. The bad part of this is a learning curve that could be costly, and the obvious fact that you have to keep on paying for traffic forever.

Another positive aspect is that you will not need the services of a person like myself who is an expert at the art of SEO, and will have you building out a lot of content and more over a 6 month period before your site starts to rank organically.

Then you get referrals and word of mouth.

This one is the best method of getting hot buyer clients because they will be sent to you via a previous client that is happy.

The obvious parts of this are you need ex-clients, and you need them to be happy.

If you have a lot of these, then you could add in social media as part of the referral system and become extremely busy. Well done if you have all this.

Another great way is networking all the time.

The fine art of networking is something that doesn’t come naturally for a lot of people and needs constant work to maintain.

If your business is the type that works well with networking then this is an important aspect of your marketing. If – for example – you were a kitchen manufacturer, then you should be well connected with all the related industries, plumbers, appliance people etc.

If your business is big enough then it would pay you to employ a professional in-house PR person for this exact task.

Then you get social media – which is just a combination of networking and referrals –  but online

Social media is amazing and grows and changes all the time.

BUT, while it can be a fantastic way to grow awareness of your services or products, you need to keep this method of marketing under firm control.

Plus – if done right, it is another thing that should have a full-time person working in-house on this side all the time.

Watch out, it can also backfire on you in a bad way. Negative marketing is becoming commonplace on social media. I see threats and complaints almost every day.

On the positive side? When done right it can bring you in a flood of customers. This is a little niche specific though, so it would depend on your niche.

Then you get organic search results online. This is a big one.

EVERY business, every top manager should have a powerful online ORGANIC presence.

You see, no matter what you do, your business is going to rank for something over time online. If you are not controlling that then you are behaving really stupidly.

Plus it is so easy to work at targeting buyer keywords and when done right will keep your phone ringing forever.

It is a little costly for the first 6 months or year, but after that, you can tick it over with a lot less spending and you will be able to sit back and enjoy the benefit of ranking for THOUSANDS of keywords related to your business.

Finally, local search online.

This is still local search and organic search but it directly connected to the Google business listing.

This GMB listing is a separate thing as far as setting up and doing SEO work on it, but can – when done right – bring in 80% of your leads.

WHY?

Well because Google KNOWS that your business is probably a “Local Business” meaning that it is area specific.

When that happens Google will serve up the 3-pack local search GMB listing first.

Those businesses that are listed in the top three will get the phone calls.

What to look for from a Johannesburg web design company

What to look for from a Johannesburg web design company

Finding a few hundred web design companies in The Greater Johannesburg Area is easy.

Almost any variation of Google searches will get you a ton of guys.

Robert Bruce Anderson

BUT – getting the right person who you are willing to trust with the entire look and feel of your business online is something you need to consider VERY carefully.

So, What advice do I give you , so that you will be in safe hands no matter who you choose for your website designer.

Start by looking at their own website.

If it looks old fashioned or out of style, they are either so busy they have no time to fix their site, or they are showing you a website that was setup longer than a year ago.

It will therefore mean that they are not up to date with current website styles and trends.

Go to the top 5 international brands you can think of and look at their websites.Apple, Coca Cola, Samsung, Ford etc.

Look deeper than their “splurb” that tells you what they are capable of.

For example, anyone can copy and paste a list of things that look like they are a hot-shot designer. Listing stuff like drupal, html, php, flash animation – bla bla bla.

Most of these guys know you do not understand all that rubbish – so they add it to look good.

Ja, Rob, But what if they can do all that stuff?

LOL, I agree, and personally I would worry even more if that can do so, because it will probably mean they are genius coders and not really aware of how to do your brand building, or get you leads from your website and more.

Plus they are probably still bragging that they have done website since”xyz” and that foot in the past is a very bad thing.

Check that they are aware of ALL the latest Google algorithm changes.

Seriously ask them to list them.

penguin, panda etc, the last big one was hummingbird.

Are you are planning for your website to just be the equivalent of a business card online?

Nothing wrong with that, a site that looks fantastic and is there as an information source on your business, address products etc.

If so, then you do not need to worry about getting a web design company that knows the latest search engine updates and all the SEO tricks necessary to rank your site in the SERPS (search engine results pages)

Or do you want Leads – lots and lost of leads.

This is a different kettle of fish.

You now enter the extremely competitive world of SEO, and if you do not know what to do you could never get any visitors to your website ever.

So, what is the most important thing.

Actually it used to be a lot more complicated (meta tags heading one, heading two etc) but now all you need to do is add fresh relevant content OFTEN.

the more the search engines see that your website is talking about your niche the more likely you are to rank.

That is the core thing you need to do.

But then there is social sharing, and it gives you a very big plus score if your stuff is shared and linked to from all over the social media world.

Then there are guest posts, back links, internal linking, press releases, web 2.0 properties and more.

Finally Google properties are VERY important right now.

your Google places listings, your Gplus business page, your YouTube account.

All of them need to be active and working in your favor.

What now?

check out my opposition :),

see what I offer and best of all be very comfortable with however you choose as you will be working closely with them for a month or two – perhaps even longer.

Start with this page of mine – http://designsmith.co.za/

see more options here – http://designsmith.co.za/website-design/website-design-packages

Most importantly SPEAK to the designer that is going to be doing the work on your website, know that they understand what your business does and what you need from your website.

You are trusting the entire look and feel of your website to someone who you have just met – make sure that they understand you and that you understand them.

Then go ahead – you do need a website and you will love it when it is live and working properly for you.
