If you want to cover off these options in detail don't hesitate to reach out.
Stage 1 Attract
Now the key to this stage is identifying the problem, or need, your ideal client has. Note this has absolutely nothing to do with your product and service.
Stage 2 Convert
Once you get a lead onto your site you can solve a high level problem they have with an asset, tools, downloads or tips and tricks. You can then start to introduce how you can solve their real problem with your product or service, which will build value and excitement.
Stage 3 Close
Align your sales and marketing teams and get those qualified leads actioned as quickly as possible. Then, let the sales team do their thing. Did you know that if you respond to a SQL (Sales Qualified Lead) within 5 minutes you have an 80% higher chance of closing that deal!
Stage 4 Delight
Congratulations, you have a new client! Because your product or service is so good of course it will delight your client...But what else can you do to continue to add value?
Stage 5 Follow-up
This is the stage for getting those raving fan reviews, having your clients refer you new clients is the ultimate goal. How are you are going to activate this in your clients?
