Let’s talk about lead funnels. What the heck is a lead funnel? What is a lead magnet? What is a sale cycle? Truth be told these are all just marketing jargon that we toss around that may sound a little funny to the average business person. However, let me tell you the magic is in the funnel and in this blog post I plan to break it all down for you and show you exactly the path that a person will take from prospect to lead and converted into your next customers. And not just any customer but a raving fans tell their friends about it and post on Yelp customer.

Email marketing is easy, right? Build a list, pick an offer, send an email campaign and sit back and wait for the sales. Sometimes that happens, but often the email campaign doesn’t deliver the results you were hoping for. What do you do then?
Before you decide email is a complete waste of time take a closer look and decide if you were really at the top of your game on these four crucial elements.
People don’t become customers overnight. Typically a casual conversation at a networking event or a random visitor to your website may be the beginning of a business relationship. Your objective is to move those casual connections through your sales funnel, converting them to leads, customers and ultimately raving fans.
That all sounds great, but who has the time to reach out to every lead as soon as they express even a casual interest, remind every prospect of what you proposed and reconnect with every client for important updates and annual messages?
The good news is you can do all that with auto response campaigns which deliver information while you focus on other aspects of your business. They do what YOU wish you had the time to do! With an auto response campaign you can shorten your sales cycle as you deliver relevant information to prospects, answering their questions and helping them take the next step in a logical, simple manner.
The welcome email is one of the most important emails in any email marketing plan. Many businesses simply disregard the welcome email and figure, yes I have it on, and yes new email subscribers will receive something. Something? That's like saying I'm going on first date...I'll just throw something on. Is that how you prepare to make a great first impression? That's exactly what a welcome email is.
