Pull Leads From the Internet

You can find prospects for sales leads on the internet. Following hashtags from keywords that relate to your business can guide you to the names of people and companies that have an interest in the same things that your company provides. Certain web scraping software can search the data of many different websites and compile it into one list for you to cold call from. You can also use the feedback from your own website to contact those who have already looked at your website to see what you might offer.

Send A Note Out

One very useful tool to generate leads is to collect email addresses of customers or anyone interested in your business. You can do this either by your website or by asking for them when they stop in. You can utilize these to send newsletters with upcoming events, messages with new sales they might be interested in, or to reach out and get their input. These emails can create a personal relationship with your potential customer, leading them to want to contact you and do business. You can also purchase email lists from outside companies however these lists might be less accurate that you expect.

Being Social

Another online source you can use is social media. Set up pages on various social media sites and open up the messaging service to answer questions. Responding to any requests quickly can lead to a sales lead for you. Starting a blog on your website and writing an excerpt on a regular basis can do the same thing when a possible client researches a topic and finds what you have written. You can also reach out to answer questions on websites formulated for people to get answers from to solve their problems. If you offer a solution to someone that works, they might possibly seek out you and your services for more business. 

Get Help

You can give them free product, a discount on a future purchase or even a cash prize to anyone who is willing to promote you to their family and friends. They will have incentive to help by getting something in return and you get a potential sale from doing this. It will also add a little excitement to generating sales leads by turning it into a little game for everyone involved. The more people who participate, the more fun it will be.
