  42. Turn random website visitors into leads by using tools that turn IP Addresses into company names – such as Lead Feeder, Lead Boxer or Lead Forensics.
  43.  Set up ‘remarketing’ or ‘retargeting’ on Facebook and Google Ads, so that anyone who comes to your site sees ads on FB, around the web, and YouTube pre-roll.
  44. Follow people who have liked and retweeted content that ideal customers would be liking and retweeting.
  45. Use your personal Facebook, and do the same – be-friending people that are involved in the same type of content ideal customers would be likely to interact with.
  46. Walk into the businesses you want to serve directly, and give them a one-pager about your value, and the problem you could help them solve.
  47. Hire a bad-ass PPC agency, and get serious about targeting ‘high-intent’ searches that hot prospects are searching, and driving them to tightly targeted landing pages. (Click here to have us do it!)
  48. Give your website a serious tune-up, add trust badges, testimonials, and emotionally evocative imagery and headlines that help ideal customers imagine a better future where they’re the hero, and your company is the guide. (or have us do it.)
  49. Get serious about video, and put videos on a regular basis on social and youtube, they don’t have to be super technical – just keep people aware of you and your company!
  50. Hire an aggressive SEO agency that actually understands your industry and cares about your success. (We’d love to talk through SEO and give you a demonstration!)

Ultimately – your business needs leads to survive.

Ideal customers are hard to find, and to me – the ones you ATTRACT are better than the ones you PURSUE.

That’s why I love SEO – but sometimes you have to take matters into your own hands. If you did everything on the list above, that was $50 dollars or less – I think it would be pretty hard not to come up with 100 leads in the next week.

I wish you luck – just remember, always be useful!
