Leads! Leads! Leads!

Are you gaining leads everyday for your business?  If not, you are not growing your business as you should.  Leads in a business are people that you can share your product or services with so they can determine if it is a fit for them.  If you are not attracting leads, you will not be able to share your business.

Finding leads can be a challenge at times if you do not spend the time looking for new people to share with.  The best way to gain leads is to provide something of value to others.  Become an authority in your field by out teaching others in the same field.  If you are in wellness, teach wellness better than others.  If you are in insurance, teach insurance better than others.  If you are in skin care, teach skin care better than others.

You can use a blog, facebook group, or instagram or other online platform for your hub to teach from.  Many successful businesses have used each of these platforms as their main hub for teaching others and attracting leads to their product or service.  Picking one or all can make a difference in how many leads you bring into your business.  To discuss which might be best for you and to gain some strategies on teaching from them email me to set up a free coaching call.

As you continue to grow and meet people in the world, build a relationship first and then move to a conversation about the products you have to offer once you determine a need.  A great resource on sources of leads for your business is Ray Higdon’s 29 Sources of Leads.  You can download it for free HERE.

With my businesses I have several products that someone may need. We have the gardens and can sell them kale, we have fruits and veggies in a capsule, I have a Stress Busters facebook group that I teach how to bust stress out of life, we have a franchise opportunity.

So many things that might fulfill a need for someone, so how do I keep up with all the leads?  I came across a great tool for sharing with others and keeping up with prospects while I am out and about called Shuffle by Elify.  Shuffle is an electronic business card app that allows you to create up to 10 different cards for the businesses you are building.  You may only need one, but you can tailor up to 10!

How it works:

  1.  Create an electronic business card for what you are sharing by using the premade templates.  So easy to add videos and links.
  2. When talking with someone you ask, would you like me to send you some information so you can see if it is a fit for you?
  3. Ask where they want you to send it-text or email?
  4. Enter the number or email in the card right then and there and tell them you will follow up in a few days to see what they think
  5. Schedule the app to remind you to follow up with them

The app will then send the card to them instantly and lets you know if they viewed it!

Here are a few screenshots I took of a few of the cards when I first made them.  I used it for 1 day and I already could see the numbers growing.






Love it!  No more little books with names and numbers, all your leads are organized in the app and you can continue to grow your business  by exposing your products and services to people on the spot.

Here is a direct link to the card I created for our Simply More Plants business.  You can click and see how I personalized it to be more specific.

Here is the direct link to the card I created for my Stress Busters Group.  You can click to see how I personalized it to be more specific to the Stress Busters.

You should always be trying to gain leads for your business by teaching others, but as you gain the leads you want to be able to direct the lead to  more specific information about your products and services and I am loving using this tool for organizing the people you share with.
