- Leadsology: the science of being in demand.
- Tom says that when we’re marketing, it’s like we’re proposing. Inbound marketing is that first date. It makes an offer after we know they have an interest.
- On average the majority of people don’t make an inquiry until the fifth exposure to your brand.
- Tom says that some ways you can get that exposure to your brand is podcasting, blog posts, LinkedIn articles, webinars, PDF guides, challenges, summits, giveaways, Facebook groups etc.
- 3% of your audience are seekers (ready to buy right away); 12% are explorers (5 exposures to your brand); and 85% are wonderers (no intention to buy).
- Tom’s qualifications for a potential client call: agree they can afford to work with him, the timing is good to start, they will watch the webinar prior to starting.
- Tom says he has a $25,000 coaching package on his site. Sure there is a goal to have this sold. “How many $50,000/month packages will you sell if you don’t have one”–such good logic. There are people out there that have plenty of money. Not only will this price anchor your other offers, but it will allow someone to actually buy that big ticket item. You’ll never sell it if you don’t offer it!
- Tom says:
- the best audiences are other peoples audiences.
- the best asset is a webinar.
- the best call to action is a consultation.
- Mistakes Tom has seen people make when trying to get leads:
- 1. Proposal at first site: practicing outbound marketing when inbound marketing is what they need.
- 2. People don’t want to market themselves correctly.
- The key to fulfilling your destiny is using what you WANT to do to make money.
