What is a lead?
When you’ve identified a potential customer interested in your products and services, that’s a lead!
Identifying a lead is generally considered the first point in a sales cycle that will hopefully end with the lead becoming a repeat customer. The way you do this is by bringing people to your website, converting those potential customers into leads, and then through a variety of digital marketing efforts, make those leads into paying customers.
Leads a necessary for growth
Many new small business owners find themselves getting “stuck,” unable to grow their business because they can’t bring in enough new customers.
That’s where lead generation comes in. By marketing yourself through social media and other digital marketing methods, you can bring yourself to the attention of potential customers. From there, you can nurture your relationship with them through strategies like offering them free opt-ins, getting them onto your email list, and maybe even schedule a free consultation.
What lead generation techniques are the best?
You can utilize many strategies to bring in new leads, but we believe that for lead generation to be successful, you need to use ALL of them.
For example, lead magnets can be an incredible way to convert curious visitors to your website into solid leads. By providing them with valuable free content of the same quality as your paid offerings, you will be engaging with them, even before they enter the sales cycle. An exceptional lead magnet can prove your abilities, showing leads what they can expect from you if they become paying customers.
A weekly newsletter is also a fantastic way to nurture leads over time. Once they download your lead magnet, they should be added to your email list. A regularly released newsletter will show them the products you offer, third-party reviews, and a personalized message to build up your relationship.
There are many other avenues of lead generation, including building up your LinkedIn profile, boosting your brand on social media channels, and increasing your overall sales through direct outreach.
How can we help?
The best part about working with a virtual assistant team experienced in lead generation is that we can put together a specific strategy for you and your business.

“Jennie’s digital marketing experience, combined with her excellent organizational skills, is a win-win for any small business. In fact, her social media efforts resulted in a 280% increase in email signups for my website!”
JULIE REVELANT is a health journalist and healthy school lunch advocate who teaches parents how to raise healthy kids who crave healthy food.
"Before working with Jennie, it was challenging to keep our content and website refreshed and up to date. Often, we wouldn't notice that something was outdated on our website until it was too late. We knew what wasn't working, but we didn't know what we didn't know. Enter Jennie.
Jennie brought us fresh new marketing ideas to keep things moving and looking good on social media and the web. Her process is efficient, quick, and turn-key. Now, people understand exactly what we do and HOW WELL we do it before coming to the website. It's no longer an uphill battle to make a sale. Jennie's excellent eye for detail and content support is, no doubt, a key driver for this outcome.
Today's business landscape is competitive. Unless you have the budget for in-house support, you need to outsource communication, web development, and social media. Jennie does all that, and more!"

“I am blown away. I seriously wanted to cry when I saw what an amazing job Jennie did for me (and for my clients) in such a short time. All of the content was fantastic, with no further edits required. ‘Thank you’ isn’t sufficient. I’m truly impressed and so grateful I found her.”

Every time I slide a task off my plate onto Jennie’s, she gets it done so quickly and efficiently that I’ve increased my own momentum. As a result, things are finally taking off in my business!
Jennie's guidance and advice keep me out of overwhelm and freak out mode. Her ‘high-touch’ philosophy means that she gets back to me almost instantly, and our weekly phone calls ensure that we stay on the same page. I have no idea how she stays so organized and on top of everything! I now consider her a vital member of my team!”

“Jennie is my secret sauce! The startup phase of my new business was overwhelming me. I knew I needed a social media presence but did not know where to start, nor did I have the time to maintain it. Jennie has been awesome to work with! She created a wonderful digital presence for me online through my blog, Facebook, and Twitter. She keeps everything planned, scheduled, and maintained. I am amazed at how well she has gotten to know me and my business. She’s even able to write in “my voice”. Whenever I have had a few ideas I’d like to incorporate into my site, she would integrate them beautifully. This has been a huge help to me and allows me to better serve my clients and work on growing my business.”

“I am a pro writer, so I tend to be picky about what gets put on my website. Jennie Lyon is the only person I’ve ever trusted to help me with blog posts and newsletters.

"My fear of hiring a virtual assistant was, would they be competent, responsive, understand my wants and needs, and the big one, would they care as much about my business as I do? Would they only do what was asked, or would they be a proactive problem solver and really become a part of my team? Honestly, I expected the answers to all of those questions to be some version of “No”.
But Jennie has been a resounding “Yes”! Every time I give her a project or ask if she can help with something, her response is either “Yes,” or “I’ll figure it out.” And she does! Jennie just helped me with a big launch and I so appreciate all of the things that she took off of my plate. She did them, made them work, and then tested them to make sure they were right. It was a huge stress reliever for me.
As for my question of whether she cares about my business as much as I do, she does. She set up a whole new program for me, with items that needed to be done that I wasn’t even aware existed. Imagine my delight when I saw that, without even being asked, Jennie had done them for me! She could have skipped them. But she knew that they were important, so she just did them without prompting.
I truly appreciate the great work that Jennie does for me and my company. Her skills are a tremendous asset. I love how competent she is. Most of all, I love that she’s got the attitude and spirit to “figure it out” if that’s what’s required to get a project done or a problem solved."
