Campaign Releases, Lead Generation

[NEW] Lead Generation – Estate Planning

Do you want to connect with people who need to create or review their estate planning?  This campaign is for you.

Massive changes introduced by recent laws have made many estate strategies outdated.

People who haven’t created or reviewed their estate plans in light of these new rules are at risk.

This new lead generation campaign encourages prospects to reach out to you to discuss their estate planning by providing a free guide. 

Inside they’ll find: 

  • The changes quietly caused by new rules
  • A “domino effect” caused by changes to taxes, trusts, gifting limits, and more
  • How their spouse and heirs could have been negatively impacted if their plan hasn’t been updated to reflect these new laws

The lead magnet is designed to be “precisely vague”. It provides good advice but opens a loop with critical questions that the prospect must work with you to resolve.

Attract fresh prospects by offering a compelling tool through a campaign that includes: 

  • A lead capture landing page
  • prospecting emails
  • social media posts
  • optional Facebook ads

Marketing Strategies & Tactics

Why Is My Marketing Not Working? Here’s Why

How long do you think you need to work at your marketing to get results? A month? Three months? What if we told you it takes a lot longer than that? Probably a lot longer than you’d like. But that’s ok; you’re in this for the long haul because you want more than just leads—you want paying clients.

One of our members shared with us that he “just scheduled a meeting with a $1.2M prospect” he’s been emailing since 2018. After three years of nurturing and building the relationship, he finally got a call booked with that high-net-worth (HNW) prospect. Even though it won’t take all your HNW clients three years to convert, you need to invest in that relationship with a considerable amount of nurturing to get on their radars.

So the right answer to our question in the first paragraph is: it depends. We recommend using our holistic lead generation strategy for at least six months before giving up—but it could take up to three years (or even longer) to net the big fish. Remember, you won’t get results immediately, and expecting instant gratification will hurt your marketing success.

Stay motivated with consistent efforts and marketing metrics that actually matter to get more marketing wins—paying clients who are loyal to your business.

Do Privacy Changes Affect Your Marketing’s Effectiveness?

When COVID-19 first impacted the U.S., “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” had to go without an audience. In lieu of laughter and cheers from an engaged crowd, Colbert told his jokes to an empty room—and, as empty rooms do, it didn’t laugh or clap back. But just because Colbert couldn’t get feedback from a live audience, it doesn’t mean his viewers weren’t enjoying his content. In fact, people were still watching Colbert’s show as much as they did pre-COVID-19. The reason? With or without feedback, good content is good content. Colbert’s target audience continued to enjoy his show, laugh at his jokes, and probably clap the way they used to—whether he saw them doing so or not—because the content was still good. Good content doesn’t rely on feedback because it’s focused on what the client wants, not what they bring to the transaction. And that’s good news because tech giants like Apple and Google have started prioritizing consumer privacy. This means our marketing efforts may yield less feedback at certain stages of the sales funnel. We won’t be able to track email open rates, click-through rates, and other metrics as accurately as we once did—but that doesn’t have to mean the end of lead generation. Focus on tailoring your content to your target audience—as Colbert did—and the lack of data won’t derail your marketing results.
