  • As you begin attracting more consumers to your business, you’ll want to make sure they don’t leave and forget about you. Give them something to take with them in exchange for their contact information. This is called a lead magnet and can be anything of value, such as a free report, coupon or giveaway.

    Attracting customers starts with focus. Knowing whom you’re talking to, where to find them and how to encourage them to give you their contact information is the strategy that will set you apart from your competitors.
  • Once you’ve attracted the right audience, you need to either make the sale or get their contact information so that you can follow up.
    Build trust and give your prospects a reason to opt-in.
    Here are examples of things you can provide to your audience to get them to opt in.
  • Here are examples of tactics used to get information.
    Pop up opt-ins work.
    Forms are a great way to get prospects to opt-in.
    Other tactics include holding contests with online forms or fishbowls in your physical location.
    Ipads and kiosks at your events
    Asking for contact information at point of sale never hurts either
