A Powerful Approach to Lead Generation That We Almost All Overlook

Posted on 11th December 2018. Overlooked Leads

When we talk about lead generation we normally mean potential clients we've not met or interacted with before.

What we tend to forget is the people we already know, but we're not treating like leads.

In particular, there are two categories of people who make exceptional leads that we tend to overlook.

The first is ex-clients. The second is “dropped prospects”.

Both are great prospects because we've already built up credibility and trust with them.

The challenge is we've usually dropped out of touch and we don't know how to get back in contact and start talking about working together without seeming desperate or pushy or otherwise put them off.

In this video, I show you an approach for reconnecting that will get potential clients enthusiastic about speaking with you. And it will allow you to smoothly transition to talking about working together.

It takes work. But it's worth it.

4 LinkedIn Lead Generation Strategies That Actually Work

Posted on 20th November 2018. LinkedIn Lead Generation

If you've ever read any advice on LinkedIn or watched any videos or even paid for training, chances are that 90% was about “optimising your LinkedIn profile”.

And while having a strong profile is important, it's not the thing that's going to get you clients (in the same way that a great resumé doesn't get you a job – it's going out and applying for jobs and doing a great interview that counts the most).

In this video I describe 4 LinkedIn lead Generation Strategies that actually work.

For real people. Not just social media experts selling social media services through social media.

The Uncomfortable Truth About Lead Generation

Posted on 14th November 2018. The Uncomfortable Truth About Lead Generation

Most of us get Lead Generation completely backwards.

We're a bit like the guy who wants to get a date and obsesses about whether he should be going out to clubs, using a dating app or asking friends for introductions – and completely forgets to smarten himself up a bit and try to look his best some people will actually want to have a date with him.

In this video I explain the big mistake most businesses make with lead generation and the simple step you can take to turn that round and get people wanting to meet with you.

Break Your Scarcity Mindset

Posted on 6th December 2012.

Scarcity MindsetYour scarcity mindset is hurting your sales.

But there's another scarcity mindset many of us have. And it's far more insidious.
