Do you know how to generate traffic using a blog? And turn that traffic to leads & even sales?
I hear you say, come on now! Everybody knows it!
All you have to do is, write a quality SEO article in your niche, post it to your blog, syndicate it across the web 2.0 & social media and see traffic pour in! Right?
Yes, everybody knows this proven old-school method, and this method works. Every time! Still, only a few people actually do it. Very small percentage of people. For others, consistency is the problem. There’ll be no shortage of traffic, leads and sales for you if you could overcome this very problem.
That being said, I like to reveal a cool method of blogging here. A method of blogging I learned from Lee Muray from his List Synergy. This is the best method you’ll ever be exposed to. Especially if you are looking for the answer, how to generate lead using a blog.
Aren’t there other cool methods to generate leads? Of course there are! Like YouTube marketing, solo ad campaign, product launch, you name it! These all are good lead generation methods.
I also generate a lot of leads using YouTube marketing. I have started this method recently. Actually, I am running a combo of blogging and YouTube marketing. And having results beyond belief.
But for a start, you can use just blogging as I did.
Product lunch is other strong lead generation methods, which could be extremely profitable. I know because I have lunched a few products and built my buyer’s list. But the problem is making the product. I mean making a good product that’ll sell in the market is not that easy. There are many “if’s” and “buts” behind a successful product launch. Every nitty-gritties should be attained! Blogging is much easier and fast!
Let me say a little about solo ad lead generation. That is before I jump into this unique blogging method.
This method of lead generation was never my favorite! The first reason is. It costs money! I run a few solo ad campaigns only to experiment with the method. Or to test the conversion of my funnels. I came to the conclusion running those campaigns, do not run solo ads if you don’t know what you are doing! You can lose money fast!
But I absolutely love blogging as lead generation because, it’s easy, it’s free, and it’s very do-able to all! But you have to be consistent about it. 5 good-quality contents are good. The more the better.
The method is simple enough! You’ll build your freebie list from your blog and will send them to your newest post. You’ll use that freebie list traffic to increase your blog traffic. Your list and your blog content grow side by side. The more contents you post to your blog the more leads you attract. The method runs in a loop.
Now, you may ask, how my list will grow? I’m the one who is sending traffic to my list! They are already subscribers of my list!
Well, when you post a good quality content, your list won’t the only traffic, your will be getting. A good amount of traffic will come from social media and search engines. There will be new subscribers each time you post.
Okay, let’s see what you’ll need for this method of lead generation and list building.
Obviously, you’ll need your domain and a word press blog hosted and all the necessary page set up. Install these plugins: -Yoast SEO, WP Super Cache, Analytics and Google XML Sitemaps. These are the least.
You’ll also need an auto-responder account to capture leads and place your opt-in form at your blog’s side bar. I use Aweber and I have no issue using it for six years!
You’ll need your lead capturing funnel, all setups. Including your freebie and squeeze page and follow-up sequence at your auto-responder.
Once your blog is ready. You’ll need the contents. I prefer writing my own contents. I advise you to do so. But you can outsource your contents if you have money to invest. It won’t be bad investment either!
But before writing the content, it is important to carry out a keyword research. I use free Google adward planner tool. Find at least 10 good keywords, closely associated to your main keyword. Write or instruct your writer to build contents around those keywords.
Good keyword specific content and traffic from your list to it will increase the value of the content in the eyes of the search engines. More traffic will flow to your blog. That means more subscribers to your list.
You must syndicate your blog contents to the social media through book marking and using other regular methods. This will bring a surge of traffic from the social sites to your blog. The social signal of your blog will be increased.
The results I’m having been using this method is mind blowing! That encouraged me to write this post. You should check it!
