AlwaysBeBloggingIn my conversations with small business owners around the world, one thing always comes up. How can I get more leads? Quite frankly, the answer is simple. But it’s something that many businesses aren’t doing.

In order to increase your leads you have to increase the amount of quality and targeted traffic you receive. And to do that you must be blogging and engaging on social media networks. ALWAYS.

In the words of Glenngarry Glen Ross, in order for a business to survive, you must “Always Be Closing” — the classic “ABC” rule of sales. If you don’t know what I mean by that, watch this clip. (Disclaimer – Alec Baldwin drops an F-bomb.)

While this aggressive sales style of cold calling still works in some industries, for an online business it’s been replaced by Inbound Marketing. Cold calling has been replaced by providing value to your visitors in the form of videos, webinars, email campaigns and most importantly, blogs.

The bottom line is that you need great content on your website to attract new leads.

So, what is great content, you ask?

Great content is fresh and updated frequently.
Great content is engaging.
Great content answers your customers’ questions.
Great content gives your customers a reason to choose your business instead of your competition.

A blog is the best way to provide the great content that search engines and social networks love.

Remember, to ALWAYS BE CLOSING you must ALWAYS BE BLOGGING!

  1. Glengarry Glenn Ross is one of my all-time favorite movies!

    Very glad to see that you’ve adapted this for Blogging.

    ALWAYS BE BLOGGING! It’s a mantra we all need to remember. 🙂

  2. How do you come up with new content, when you do a google search there always seems to be about 50 other ideas about your question. Is there a secret to this?

  3. I like to keep a list of posts to write so when I am stuck I have something to fall back on. I think the key is writing about things you really know about and can add value to the other content out there. The search results will come if you stick with it and the social traffic will be more instant when you have a lot to say.
