advertising our videos on our Town’s local Facebook page and so far no leads from your own personal experience what did you do to get the ball rolling Matt thank you so much for listening to the DV show and thank you for your question now keep in mind I’ve been doing this for a very very long time and what I’m not going to tell you is the usual regurgitated common knowledge of networking have a portfolio have your work on your website now all of that is important important but I’m going to go deeper I’m going to
go a little further than surface level with those needed tools to get into professional stealth ninja mode lead generation big companies with tons of clients don’t normally share these techniques and this is the only way to have a pipeline of prospects automatically coming to you giving you work with very little effort now I do want to emphasize that it is crital to have a portfolio of your work this is important social media presence is important you have to have a website these three things need to be in place
before you can take advantage of any of the tools and techniques I’m about to give you now really seriously you have to be ready polished to get work for from a client it will absolutely make no sense if you’re generating thousands of leads for your video business and you have nothing to show or sell right you have to look legit all right so with that said let’s move on let’s talk about your website now if you don’t have one get one if you do have one great now how are you going to drive traffic and collect leads
automatically having a website where you just build it and they’re going to come is not the right way to think your website is your shop your storefront in digital form and one click and a customer is instantly in your shop they are instantly in your world they’re absorbing everything about you now don’t think of a website as a showand tell tool it’s not a portfolio it’s not a brochure think of it as a lead generation tool everything that you do and say should compel the viewer to call click or email you so if they click on a
video they like what they see they should have a phone number or an email address to immediately contact you get them while they’re in the moment now it shouldn’t be static there should be a call to action at every single click it’s the best way to collect data and grow a contact list now I’m not saying bombard the viewer I’m just saying keep that information that contact information about your video business available and visible now sure you have to have a signup form a visible phone number and clear contact information now
these are the basics if you don’t have them on your website now go ahead and put that up there it this requires them to take action now no it requires them to take action but what if I told you that you can be proactive and take action for those who anonymously just browse around and leave without filling in that form sending an email or cold calling you actually take the action those visitors that are shopping around looking for video Pro and they just go poof they just disappear you can actually be proactive and get their
