Get the checklist now!

As you know, when it comes to generating leads, a combination of online and offline channels work best. With the coming of mobile phones, its foolish not to include that as well. While you may be using a vast array of offline methods, your online strategy checklist needs a few must -dos.

So Suit up! We are going down the rabbit hole to take a closer look!

The usual suspects:

We begin with the regular avenues that your marketing personnel are already looking into. An exhaustive list cannot be its namesake without covering all aspects now, would it?!

1. Google Ads

That’s how you get found by people who are looking for you. SEO takes time, investing in the right keywords doesn’t! So look up the Keyword planner tool and manage your online advertising.  Invest in the right keywords to get clicked by people who are looking for you. Remember to use the ad extensions and site links well. After all, the more real-estate you have on the page, the higher your chances of getting clicked. The biggest advantage is that it can be used for local advertising as well – a must have for location dependent businesses like your wellness service!

Check out the SERP when I typed “Spa massage in bangalore”. The first two ads have site links and quick references handy!

Optimize and tweak your adwords frequently. Keep doing it right and soon, when I type “Best wellness services in Bangalore”, I can see you listed first!

Now, just a quick tip – you can have your Ads appear in other websites as well. Make sure you run display campaigns as well. This means that your prospects can see what you offer while they are reading about wellness in another blog or checking out a new fitness regimen! However, don’t run them both simultaneously. Start with your SERP and then go to the display ads.

2. Linking up with KOLs

Speaking of blogs, do you know that some of the most read and rated pages in the wellness and fitness sector are blogs?

It’s true. People tend to follow what other people (whom they like or admire) do. Which is why so many brands opt for celebrity endorsement. However, for those who don’t have that kind of budget, there is always linking with the online influencers – the bloggers and the video makers!

Get a couple of bloggers to review your services (give them the right incentives) and ask them to put up an honest opinion. Quite apart from giving you visibility, it will put a good word about your business out there – which is all a prospect might need to convert to a customer!

3. Facebook Ads

You would think it’s a pretty sweet deal to advertise in a platform with a huge audience, like Facebook. But wait, it gets better! With Facebook Lead ads  you can easily capture a lead (hail, pre-filled forms) to nurture later! Using Facebook Ads, you can also target your audience based on their location and interests. Now, why would you not want to try that?!

4 .Social media engagement

Last but not the least – social media engagement is a must! Don’t roll your eyes – yes, I know it’s pretty basic. But how many of you actually post regular interesting content for your audience? Have you even thought of conducting online contests to keep make it more exciting? Here are some awesome twitter campaigns that you can draw inspiration from.

Be on the watch for any messages or queries from you audience. The sooner you address them, the lesser your turn over time, the more chances you have of winning them over.

The third-party sites:

It is not just about Google Ad words or SEO ranking anymore. For your business to be found, you have to be listed with a variety of third party websites which your prospects consult before reaching a decision. An important aspect to keep in mind is that the websites should have a lot of traffic and be authentic.

How to find those sites? Well, don’t worry – they are all listed here! Based on Similarweb ranking, I have classified the websites and given pertinent information about them.
