Posted by Dean Moothart

June 1, 2020

When the COVID-19 crisis hit, many businesses wrestled with the "three P's" of a business disruption or an economic downturn—panic, paralysis, and pessimism. It’s an understandable reaction when we’re blindsided by such an unexpected event.

Profitable Lead Gen Series: The Call-To-Action

Posted by Shaye Smith

May 15, 2020

More than 90% of visitors who read your headline also read your CTA copy. If there were a ‘secret sauce’ to lead generation, it would be the call-to-action (CTA). If the CTA doesn’t persuade a visitor to take action, then your offer might just be void. 

CTAs can be used on product pages, in digital ads, blog posts, email, social media, direct mail, throughout your website, and pretty much anywhere you can market your offer (both digital and non). However, not all CTAs are created equal. In a world where every brand is fighting for consumers’ attention, it’s critical that prospects choose your offer over your competitors. The CTA is what invokes that action (or doesn’t).

Keep reading, because this blog digs into how to create CTAs that invoke action.

May 13, 2020

5 Ways to Build Trust with Your Prospects

Posted by Dean Moothart

May 8, 2020

An unknown philosopher once said, “The pursuit of earning trust, not greed, will bring success.” Salespeople who focus on the opportunity, the deal, and the revenue when engaging a prospect often find success elusive. However, success often comes easier to the salesperson who focuses more on earning the trust of their prospect more than earning their next commission check. 

When the prospect trusts the salesperson, barriers are eliminated. Trust leads to open and transparent discussions about real business problems the prospect is experiencing and the impact those problems are having on the business. Only then can real solutions be explored. Effective selling starts with effective problem-solving, and effective problem-solving is built on a foundation of trust. Below are ways to build a solid foundation of trust.
