Hello there. Welcome to Digital Marketing for Coaches & Consultants. I’m your host. Dr. Terri Levine, thank you for tuning in. Subscribe to the podcast. Today, I’m going to share the action plan so that you can generate way more prospects than you currently have. So, I’m going to go through each step, I’m going to make it simple, I’m going to make it clear. And the first step, step number one, is to define your ideal customer profile. You have to clearly understand the characteristics of your target audience, and that includes things like the demographics, the psychographics, the industry trends, the location, the specific needs. And from that, then you create buyer personas, and that’s how you develop a deeper understanding of your ideal customers.

That’s step one, and these are sequential. Step number two is to develop a core, unique positioning statement. And what that statement does is it determines what sets your business apart from everybody else in the industry, and it highlights the key benefits and the value of your services or your products from everyone else in the marketplace. And when you craft a really compelling core, unique positioning statement, it not only will appeal to your target audience, it will actually address their pain points. Step number three. Step number three is to build an effective online presence.

You might be online and it might not be strategic. So, first of all, you need a professional website that showcases your brand and your offerings. If you need help, we do that. Then you need to optimize your website for search engine optimization to get visibility. We also do that. Then you need to have a content strategy so that you’re providing valuable information, and that’s actually what is going to attract your potential customers or clients. And finally, you want to leverage social media platforms that are relevant to your target audience. And then, you want to engage and build a community.

Step number four, and again, just keep remembering these are linear. This is when you start implementing lead-generation strategies. How do you do that? You offer valuable gated content. Gated means they have to give you their email address and their name in exchange for great content. You can have things like ebooks, and webinars, and white papers, and it’s a way of collecting email addresses and contact information. And then you utilize marketing campaigns, and you nurture your leads, and you provide relevant content for them. Then you optimize your landing pages so that you’re capturing leads more effectively. We also do that.

And then you can implement lead-generation ads. You can use platforms like Facebook or LinkedIn, and I don’t recommend doing that until you’ve done everything else. Step number five is to establish strategic partnerships. So, I recommend that, today, you make a list of non-competing businesses that have the same target audience that you have. And you start having strategic partnerships, their collaborations, their joint ventures or referral programs. And then you leverage the networks of your partners so that you’re actually getting in front of their customer base. Step number six is to attend networking events and industry conferences.

So, research relevant industry events, conferences, and then prepare and practice your core, unique positioning statement. When you attend these, engage with attendees, exchange contact information, and then, of course, always follow up after the event. And also, you may consider speaking opportunities to showcase your expertise and to increase your visibility. Step number seven is to leverage search engine marketing; SEM, and that is where you set up things like Pay-per-click advertising campaigns on a platform like Google ads, and you conduct keyword research to identify relevant search terms.

And then you want to create really compelling ad copy, and then, of course, landing pages that align with the content of your ads. And finally, you monitor and optimize your campaigns regularly to improve performance and conversion rates. All right, we are on to step number eight, and that is to implement referral programs. Encourage satisfied clients, customers to refer business to their network, and you can offer incentives or rewards for successful referrals and leverage customer testimonials for reviews to build trust and credibility. And step nine: Engage in social selling.

Use social media platforms to build relationships with potential prospects. Share valuable content, insights, industry knowledge. Engage in conversations, answer questions, provide solutions. And then you can direct interested prospects either to your website or landing pages for further information. And step number 10, the final step is to track and analyze results. You have to have analytics tools to measure the effectiveness of your lead generation efforts, monitor website traffic, conversion rates, email open rates, and other relevant metrics. And then use that data to identify areas for improvement and to optimize your strategies.

So, remember this, generating qualified prospects takes time, and it also takes consistent effort. Stay persistent, adapt your strategies based on the results, and continuously refine your approach to attract the right audience for your business. I gave you the step-by-step game plan.
