Why you must have a sales email campaign if you capture leads
Another Monday Morning Website Tip by Marcus Rangel
If you capture leads online, have you ever thought about how those leads should be treated differently than say someone that’s been on your list for 6 months to a year? If you’ve been around sales at all, you know that if someone calls into your office and talks to you – you would consider them either a hot or cold lead throughout your process.
Why is it that we treat online leads any different than someone that we’ve talked to?
Because they are just warming up to you and your business if they’ve requested an item of value from your site. So if someone just requested a Whitepaper, a promo code, or a book you wrote from your site, that is why we must start treating them differently in the ONLINE sales process and why a sales email campaign is so important to your business.
Let’s think about it this way.
Someone requests something from your site, you add them to your list, and they start to receive your (hopefully) weekly email drip that you send out, but maybe it’s monthly.
Take it a step further, say they signed up for something and your list was emailed already yesterday and your next email doesn’t go out until a month later, you just waited almost a month before they got something from you.
What if you could develop a drip that treated those leads differently before you ever added them to your standard drip (which is still very necessary), how cool would that be?
That’s why in next week’s tip – I’m going to show you HOW to build a sales email campaign. The great thing about it is, that once you come up with this campaign, you can use it over and over again.
You heard me right, if it works as great as it should, as Squintz would say in (from one of my all time favorite movies that we just introduced our kids to) “The Sandlot,” FOREVER!
About Marcus Rangel
I've been working with small businesses owners to craft not only beautiful custom websites, but clear, clever and concise messages to reach their prospects since 2005.
I officially hung up my "corporate cleats" to be an entrepreneur and small business owner in the summer of 2020. IMC, which started as a side hustle early in the mornings before the sun was even up in 2017, is what led me down this path as a business owner myself. I focus on helping other business owners continually stay in front of people & prospects with digital marketing, create websites that get leads with great engagement, and produce video content that are meant for the digital era we're in.
When I'm not creating, you can find me hanging out with my incredible family on our front lawn or on my OneWheel around the big city of Owasso, OK.
Does your website need help?
Not seeing your clients or prospects in person can really hinder your business especially in a time like this. But there is good news! You can easily put your smiling face on video just as easy as Kramer brightened the room on every episode of Seinfeld (yes I’ve been watching this lately and loving every minute of it)! Here’s 3 simple ways to do it right. #1. Be genuine and don’t sound like a robot. You may have to practice and fail 100 times but in order to come across like your normal self I would recommend just having bullet points in your head of what you want to cover. If your read a teleprompter people will know because you will perfect everything you are…Read More
In so many ways, what’s old has made a roar back in the way communication is happening right now with the ol’ situation we are in right now. People are calling people, there are actually people outside and going on trails (saw this yesterday it was amazing), and emails from CEO’s are through the roof – just check your inbox.Read More
Most businesses almost hide what they want people to do on their site. If you knew someone was on your site for 1 minute and 38 seconds would you have your site designed differently? (By the way, that is the averages I typically see when diving into google analytics). There is an art to making a quality design paired up with a call to action. Too cheesy and you might look cheap, too discreet and they’ll miss it. The key is making sure your call to action is at least visible on the top fold of your website on a desktop or a phone. You could also have an item of value be your secondary call to action of the top fold as well. Now…Read More
