Challenges in Lead Conversion

Hello World,

I have been busy but I am back with a new post. Most of my followers on this blogs are independent consultants or small business owners.  I would like to share and define some easy conversion issues a business owner faces when converting leads.

Leads are crucial in today’s generation of business.  So what are the key factors you are able to manage lead conversion for your business?

One of the main challenge a business owner faces is the problem of a lot of leads but few conversions

I want you to take that in for second, overflowing leads but no real conversions.

Imagine the Toronto Real estate market. There are a lot of fresh graduates who WISHES to buy a property right now.  The Real estate market in Toronto is not selling a properties below the sale price $400,000 CAD in present time.  One of these many graduates starts looking for properties despite knowing that they cannot afford one at this time.

These graduates are definitely a potential lead however, not for the current market.  For a realtor this is a lead but there will be no conversion. Should the realtor keep spending time on this lead or should they just drop them?

Lead is a Lead

You cannot ever drop a lead but you can weed out your conversion and know which one to focus on by implementing a scoring mechanism.  You should be always scoring your leads to know which one has a high chance of conversion.

Leads need to be nurtured. As a business owner you have to maintain a positive relationship with your leads and probe for potential opportunities. Schedule follow up calls with you clients to see how they are doing and what they are working on for future opportunities.

Sales and marketing 

Sales and marketing are two different things. Your marketing plan should always align with your sales goal and sales funnel.  Create a process to convert more opportunities. This means you can offer new pricing strategies to your loyal customers.

I am always here to provide you more guidance towards,

  • Email marketing

  • Social media marketing

  • Lead nurturing and inbound marketing

  • Digital advertising

  • Landing pages and forms

Creative Visioning

Hello World,

I have some questions for you to think about today!

Did you ever have a crazy idea that you just could not follow through with? One of the reason being, you kept adding to the possibilities?  After a while this idea became overwhelming and it was just dropped. Then on to the next idea…

Step back a bit! What are you doing wrong? Why isn’t any of your great vision being fulfilled?

Take a moment think about it!

Have you shared your thoughts with anyone? 

Do they become too complex to share? 

Do you think you will be judged or not taken seriously if you shared? 

Do you feel someone else might take your ideas?

____________________________________________________________

Steps

First step – speak about your idea! Tell people at a high level what your vision is.  Then get insight and feedback!

Second step – break it down! Place your idea in phases or steps… define the first step then define the next one.

Third step – organize the timeline! Meaning each step has to have a completion date attached to it.

_____________________________________________________________

I would love to hear an idea that is in your mind but you find to complex to complete.

Grateful – Mindfulness

Hello World,

Let’s practice Mindfulness for 5 minutes today.  Can we write down 3 things you are grateful for at this present time?  It can be anything!  I am grateful to still have my parents with me, I am blessed to have a supportive group of friends and I am happy, because I a platform to share my thoughts.

Now your turn! Let’s start doing this every night! Why?

We live in a disruptive world where we are always chasing something! Money, attention, career, family, love life, success, there is always something that you are chasing.  You weigh yourself against that “thing” and feel bad when you are not close to attaining the goal.  But, if you forecast everything and live in the future then you are basically letting go of your present time.  One day you will look back and say where did the time go and why haven’t I experience or missed somethings that were already there in my life.

That is the reason why I want you to practice gratefulness! Be positive and  grateful for everything and try to turn your negatives into positive. Remember perception is key.  The way you look at a situation can change the world!

Remember, you are amazing…

Dementia treated with Validation Therapy

The title is not accurate for this blog.  Validation Therapy do not treat dementia patient but it definitely eases their pain.

Google just stated, 50 million people around the world currently have dementia and there are 10 million new cases every day.

 

Does that statistic scare you?  That is a scary thought.  That means when I am older there is a good chance of me being diagnosed with dementia.  This means, I would have impaired reasoning and memory loss.

People with close loved ones diagnosed with Alzheimer and dementia face tremendous hardship.  People diagnosed with this disease need round the clock care.  If the patient is not under supervision then they might not get proper care and might get hurt due to impaired reasoning.

The carer has to go through much frustration as the person with dementia has their own way of thinking and do not recall a lot of old information.  The carer themselves go through of a phase where they would like to fix and help their loved ones get back to what they once were.  However, instead of trying to bring them back, let’s help them live their last bit of life with peace.

Validation therapy is a form, which helps people with dementia feel validated, respected, and understood in the last phases of their life.  Please follow these techniques to learn how to act more empathetically towards a patient with impaired reasoning,

  • prepare yourself to listen empathetically, set your own emotions and anger aside to be dealt with and acknowledged later. Concentrate fully on what they are sharing, making sure you’re able to pick up on any little nuance they exhibit or share.
  • Reminisce with them, especially talking about how they were able to solve a problem. A person with dementia cannot learn new coping skills; but, remembering how they handled problems in the past may help them rediscover a way to deal with problems they currently face.
  • If the person with dementia enjoys physical contact, and would not consider you to be violating their space, use touch to establish a relationship with them. Gently stroking their cheek or hand may remind them of pleasant times from the past, such as times when their mother did the same. Remember, people who have problems with others being in their personal space will continue to have those issues, disoriented or not. Respect for their boundaries is important.
  • Maintain close eye contact. Gazing into their eyes will help them feel secure and loved.
  • Music is a great tool. Music and songs often transport us to another place and time. Think how many times a song reminds you of other people, places or events. Non-verbal people with dementia can even sing songs they once knew when they are otherwise unable to speak.
  • Do not argue with them. Arguing with a confused person is rarely productive and leads to frustration and agitation.
  • Use a clear, low (but not quiet) and loving tone. High-pitched tones and soft tones are difficult for someone with impaired hearing to understand. Plus, an overly loud voice can come across as harsh or angry; therefore, do not talk louder than necessary just because they are hard of hearing.
  • Use non-threatening, factual words. A person with dementia is not the least bit concerned in discovering why they behave the way they do. Rather than asking why something was done, focus instead on the more concrete questions of who, what, where, when and how.

JUST TAKE THAT STEP!

Hello World,

Past Experiences…

Self doubt stems from what we have learnt about ourselves yet. Looking at our past is an important key to addressing conflicting issues.

What we were taught while we were younger, be it from our parents, guardians, and teachers, plays a crucial part in how we are today. Parents want to be a guide for the best of our future, however, sometime that very guidance may inflict our present self doubt.

As you were younger, you may have been told NOT to pursue to choose a certain path. Take a look at these scenario of a parent telling their children not to choose a career path because their negatives:

  • It’s too dangerous to become a fire fighter or a cop!
  • You can’t pursue to become an artist or writer, you won’t make any money!
  • Don’t waste your time on Medical school, you are just not smart enough!

“Nobody can give you wiser advice than yourself.” ~Cicero

Too dangerous, not enough money/security and you are just not good enough!

These thoughts are manipulative. They come back when we are rejected from a goal we wanted to achieve. These negative thoughts can stop us from pursuing life goals we want to accomplish because we doubt being adequate.

We always want to be a perfect fit, if we don’t fit then we are judged.

We think we are not good enough to live the life we dream.  Self-doubt prevents us from many opportunities that come our way. It’s always there holding us back. Many job seekers doubt their capabilities and don’t apply to the position they are a perfect match for. The message is to live a social norm and or as a mediocre.

But if you really put your mind to it, this is toxic! How do you know you are not good enough, if you don’t try?!

When you doubt your power, you give power to your doubt.” ~Honore de Balzac

If you have been rejected, and are letting go of other prospects because you still feel that you aren’t adequate, STOP Right there!

Give yourself a bit of time and then assess why you are feeling self doubt. If you feel you are not good at a skill, then let’s put in work to attain that skill. Contact me! I’ll guide you through the process. 

You can’t pass opportunities just because you failed once or twice, remember positive affirmation; Risk – Is it Scarier taking a Risk or Not taking One? … If you are not good at something now that does not mean you won’t get better at it in the future.

Anyone can get good at something with the correct self belief and determination.

What you tell yourself is important! If you tell yourself that you won’t make it then you won’t! I believe you, because that’s what you believe. You are setting yourself for failure just by that negativity. But if you think positive, and speak positive then I believe you too!

The talk should be, okay well I failed this time but I will learn and get better which will change things. You are as good as what you believe, so let’s get working!

The Judgmental losers…

They don’t exist in a large number! Yes, they are a few of these judgmental losers who would look at you and say, hmm why are you doing what you are doing! These people are only saying that since they can’t get themselves to pursue their own dreams. Hence, they have a lot of time on their hand.

Stop worrying about these people! Most people don’t care! They have their own lives to worry about, their own dreams, aspiration, career goals and stress. They are more worried about how to start their day, that month end deadline at work, coming home and cooking dinner and spending time with their loved ones.

Set an example for these people, if they are judging, let them do it! Prove them wrong! You will be more appreciated for trying and trying then to sit back and live the same boring life as everyone else.

How to over come Self -Doubt…

  1. Fix your mindset – You got rejected? So is he, and so is she…we all have. But we don’t give up!
  2. Positive affirmation – You Are MORE than good enough!
  3. When you are feeling self doubt, unwind a bit! Give yourself time to relax and enjoy some quality time. This will give you some to get your thoughts aligned again.
  4. Evaluate why you are feeling self doubt – why do you feel you are not good enough and what can you do to become good?
  5. Write it down! Where is your Journal? Write down, why you are feeling self doubt and the positives steps you will be taking.
  6. Read Motivational articles – You need motivation and their are plenty of people who felt and been where you are. Read how they over came self doubt.
  7. You don’t have to do it alone! Find family and friends to talk about your self doubts. Most of the time we over evaluate and exaggerate the situation in our mind. Our loved ones can bring things back to perspective for us. Don’t worry, they will not judge you!
