Are You LOSING 74% of Your Leads?

losing leadsWhen is the last time you, as a consumer, were on a business’s website, confused and frustrated, and thought to yourself, “I’d really like to do business with this company.”

Yeah, I didn’t think so.

What if I told you there was a simple (and VERY affordable!) marketing tool out there that could ensure your prospects never experience the scenario above?

In fact, it can increase your monthly calls by up to 67% and the average number of prospects who fill out your web forms by 74%!

Find out what it is after the jump…


Now, a landing page might seem like old news to some of you out there, but here’s why they’re still relevant: A landing page is a single webpage with the sole purpose of converting visitors from prospects to a lead. You usually exchange an offer (something of perceived value) with this prospect for their contact information via a web form.

There’s no confusion. It’s direct — and it’s pretty darn effective.

Take PostcardMania’s numbers for instance. Our top-performing landing page converts about 11% of all visitors. That’s a very respectable response rate (if I do say so myself), and it all boils down to clarity and simplicity.

Here’s the beauty of how a landing page works:

  • You send out a message to qualified prospects via postcard, pay per click, etc.
  • You provide a compelling offer that drives them to your landing page
  • They visit your landing page and provide their contact information in exchange for your offer
  • You now have a qualified lead with whom you can follow up with via email (which is more affordable) until they close

On your website, visitors have a wealth of options, and it’s more difficult to control their clickpath (the order in which they click on various links/videos on the path to becoming a lead or customer). On a landing page, everything is focused on one thing — the offer that got them there in the first place.

That said, there are still a number of ways a landing page can go wrong, so here are a few quick tips to help you maximize your response rate…

  • Maintain a consistent design between your initial marketing piece and your landing page – Making sure your postcard looks similar to the landing page helps prospects orient themselves and know that they’re in the right place.
  • Add trust building logos to establish credibility – As consumers, we have an inordinate amount of fear when it comes to giving someone our contact information on a website, so add a few trust logos (from the BBB and other credible organizations) to help reduce this sense of doubt.
  • Don’t ask for too much right off the bat – One of the things that truly makes me cringe when I go to fill out a form online is seeing a ton of red asterisks next to every single little box. By only requiring an email address for people to redeem your offer is a good way to get more leads from your landing page.
