If you are in the business of selling your real estate services, or any type of service, you must always start with a lead to a potential client. Unfortunately, these cannot all come from referrals. One of the first things that a potential new client need to see on your website homepage is a lead capture.
A lead capture is a way for somebody who is visiting your site to express interest in your services by giving you their contact information.
There are FIVE critical components of an effective lead capture form:
1. Length: If your lead capture form is short, you will generate more leads but less information. If it is longer, you will receive less leads but more quality information about the potential customer. In order to get the best of both worlds, you might have some length but make only essential fields required. This would give visitors the option to provide as much information as they want you to know about them.
2. Information Fields: What information should you ask them for? You need enough to be able to contact and qualify the lead, but you do not want to ask for the wrong kind of information. It is important to qualify before making contact, to make sure the person is serious about wanting to know more.
4. Page Position: Your lead capture should be immediately visibly as soon as the visitor opens your site; they should not have to scroll down to find it.
5. Submission: You would think that your potential leads would simply click a submit button to submit their information to you. Studies have shown that people think this implies too much of a commitment, and they are less likely to send their information. Try finish or go to get them to seal the deal.
Lead captures provide you with tangible information about potential clients that you can use to further your marketing efforts. Since they are voluntarily giving you their information, they are likely customers.
These days, people are much more likely to use the Internet to find their information than to pull out their phone book and give you a call. Use a lead capture form on your page to build your contact database and extend your market reach.0 comment(s) Read More
