Key Lessons Learned:
Facebook Lead Ads
- You need to have a Facebook company page in order to run lead generation ads.
- Facebook lead ads keep the user on Facebook and use targeting options based on gender, location, age, and personal interests.
- The ad will appear in users’ feeds as a sponsored ad.
- A Facebook lead ad is different to a regular Facebook ad. There is a pre-populated form submitted to the business owner with 2 clicks.
- The best option is to do testing with both Facebook lead ads and regular ads.
- Lead adverts indirectly advertise the Facebook page, which often leads to targeted likes.
- People are oversaturated with offers to ‘download my free report’ and are sick of spam in their inbox.
- Offering an email to get a white paper seems like a trick to many.
- People know they can Google the information that is available in free white papers, so you will have to elevate your offer in order to get people to opt-in.
- If you wouldn’t subscribe to it, you can’t expect others to.
- People buy when they are ready to buy and not simply because you put out another email.
21-Day Email Courses
- An email series works better than white papers, so it’s best to come up with a concept (e.g. ‘21 days to get the toxins out of your life’).
- Every day, for 21 days, send 1 action item rather than have someone read a full 10-page white paper at once.
- The 21-day concept means people are giving you permission to email them for 21 days in a row (and see your name in their inbox).
- At the bottom of the email, you can give the reader the option to ‘get all the information now’ rather than wait the 21 days to get the content in bite-sized chunks.
No Opt-In Required
- Having a no-opt-in required option ensures the majority of people will get the information, which at least gets them to the page.
- If someone downloads the no opt-in item, you are still able to send a Facebook marketing pixel so you can remarket to via Facebook.
- Through the entire series there are a number of places the audience can click and be sent.
- After the Facebook remarketing, you can start segmenting your list.
- At the end of the 21-day period, try to sell your services and let the audience know that you are automatically subscribing them to your main email list so you can keep in contact.
- People end up quitting before things get hot.
- Internet marketing is not something that will happen overnight. It’s all about consistency and persistency.
- If you want consistent leads and internet marketing to work for you, then you have to write content, send newsletters, and stick to it consistently for 6-12 months.
- Not dedicating a sufficient budget to internet marketing. Instead, hire a professional.
- If you have a budget of $400-500 dollars without a professional to help you, then you’ll waste that money.
- Don’t change the image, headline, and content at the same time. Change one thing and test it.
- Most of the time, spreadsheets are the best way to track.
Turning a Website Visitor Into a Client
- You don’t want to be dependent on Facebook and other platforms to communicate with your clients. Make sure you get your list in order.
- Email marketing is always the answer, as it allows you to nurture the relationship.
- Lindsey’s videos are weekly and run 2 minutes or less. Each has a short intro, then go into the tip.
- Videos should share valuable information and help to position you as an expert in your field.
- Video helps massive with search engine results, especially on YouTube.
- Once you create a video, you can create a blog post about it.
Designing a Killer Landing Page
1. No other menu items.
2. Headline that addresses the pain points.
3. Bulleted list of things you can help people with.
4. Form on the right-hand side (what you want them to do, e.g. name, email, big button).
5. Social proof such as testimonials.
