Promise: How to Generate an Unlimited Amount of Leads
Thanks for having me! I guess the big takeaway for today is going to be lead generation. I believe that this is the biggest challenge that entrepreneurs face. Well, there’s actually two. I have the privilege of speaking on stages all over the globe, and so I ask entrepreneurs, “What’s the biggest challenge you face in your business today?” Although I always receive a myriad of different responses, it always comes down to two. The first is time. Time is the #1 precious commodity that none of us can buy. Once it’s gone, it’s gone. It’s fleeting. The other is leads, or business coming through the door. [bctt tweet="What’s the difference between successful and unsuccessful people? It’s the follow up." username="danielhall"] I believe that if you can solve that challenge in your business. If you can dial in your marketing, and if you have a massive amount of leads and traffic coming through the door, and your bank accounts are overflowing with money, then you can probably buy yourself out of any challenge that you face in your business today. So, today I’m going to show you how to generate an unlimited amount of leads in your business.
