Upon a lead conversion, a visitor should be brought to a thank you page. The goal here is to not only provide a link to the offer they’ve downloaded, but to also drive leads to other relevant offers and work them further down the sales funnel. The four most critical components of an effective thank you page is access to your offer, social media sharing links, a secondary call to action (provide something similar to the offer they just downloaded) and an auto response thank you email.
Here’s the thing about checklists–they change all the time. One day’s tasks will differ from the next day’s. One holiday’s packing list will differ from the next. But that doesn’t mean that you’ll need to design from scratch over and over again. Once you’ve perfect one design to suit your style exactly, you can use it as a template for future checklists.
Another important question you need to ask is if their budget or revenue criterion matches the range for your product or service offering. If your product plays to the high end of the market and your lead’s budget is low, this just won’t work. So it is better to know the answer to this now rather than in the later stages once you’ve invested more time in the lead.
The Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants announced the re-implementation of its precautionary measures, from Wednesday 25 March 2020 onwards until further notice, to close library facilities and to adjust the services hours of counter on the 27th floor to 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. from Monday to Friday, whilst counter services hours on Saturday remains unchanged (from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon).
Short of time and looking at a quick checklist to ensure you are on the right track to a successful lead generation campaign? Over the years I have consulted for several startups and also deployed lead generation techniques that work. This is our own checklist of ideas and points we follow to either brainstorm and come up with more ideas with the rest of the team. Use this checklist in cases where you have started several campaigns and noticed the results or conversions are not coming through, or if the leads have suddenly stopped, then look also at ensuring you are up to date with newer strategies or techniques that are coming out to market.
You have all of this great, resourceful content...why not get more from it? Repurpose some of your most popular blog articles into an ebook, or turn an ebook into a webinar. This ensures you’re working more efficiently while also featuring more variety in your content. You can even package together an ebook, webinar, and whitepaper into a kit, offering even more value and more importantly, incentive for visitors to convert.
There’s no official, public list of Augusta members, but by cross-referencing published materials from this year’s Masters Tournament with a leaked list of members from 2002, exploring published records, conducting interviews with golf insiders and industry sources, and walking the grounds of the course (where members wear the club’s iconic green jackets) Bloomberg was able to compile a list of 118 of the club’s 300 members. Below, those members are indexed by name and profession.
On a series of calls, you should be able to identify if your lead is as involved in this offering as you are. He needs to cross-examine you on various aspects like the size of your business, how many customers use your product, how the product or service will help his business, etc. Questions like these will help you understand if he is interested in your pitch.

✓ Media monitoring is a multi-sourcing task. Document all the marketing venues that push a buyer to your concept. Continually ask, "What source(s) prompted you to find out about our franchise opportunity?" on your initial inquiry forms, applications, at Discovery Day, and in training class. Credit four lead sources if a new franchisee initially saw your magazine ad, attended a trade show, read a success story about a franchisee, and then inquired online. Remember, the Internet is often the transmitter, not the originator, of a prospect inquiry.
Augusta National, which hosts the Masters Tournament this weekend, goes to extraordinary lengths to cloister its roughly 300 members, a group that includes some of the wealthiest, most powerful businessmen—and, as of 2012, women—in the world. Guests must be accompanied by members at all times. Autograph requests are forbidden. And in recent years, the club has acquired an estimated $55 million in real estate surrounding its courses, clubhouse and cabins, creating a bigger buffer zone to insulate its members, and to better control the Masters experience.
The first three points in this startup checklist basically require you to do adequate research into your market. You have to know what the value of your offering is to the people you are offering it to. For example, there's no point in pricing your premium content at $3 a posting when the exact same content is being given away at a larger, more established site.
