  2. 2.  A service business must generate new leads to survive.  Lead valves are online marketing instruments that your business can use to attract new customers/clients.  A lead valve is any avenue of online marketing that can deliver business.
  3. 3.  Most small business websites are not “user friendly” and thus do not generate sufficient leads.  Each website needs a lead capture form placed in a prominent location. (Ex. Name, email, etc. to request a free quote).  Most individuals are more likely to fill out a short lead form than pick up the phone and call.
  4. 4.  “Driving traffic” is internet marketing lingo for getting visitors to a website.  Most websites generate little traffic, and have no method of tracking monthly visitors.  If your website does not get a significant amount of the marketing search volume, how can it generate consistent leads?
  5. 5.  Search engine optimization  Social Media (Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, etc.).  Blogging  Pay per click advertising (GoogleAdwords,Yahoo Search Marketing).  Article marketing  Press release distribution  Video marketing  All of these traffic generating strategies are designed to funnel targeted traffic to your website.Your website (with proper lead capture installed) will turn this traffic into leads, which will turn into sales.

  9. 9.  Pay a small amount (ranging from .25 cents to $20.00 or more) every time someone clicks your advertisement.  Primary PPC platforms are Google Adwords andYahoo Search Marketing.  Facebook PPC is fast approaching as the #1 PPC advertising medium because of the laser target advertising options.
