Lead generation


We are building a web app where lead gen will be a major component. I would like to get more information about implementing it

  1. What are the best ways to incorporate lead gen in the application/website?
  2. What are some of the examples of the websites where lead gen has been implemented in very effective way?
  3. Any other pointers that would be useful.

I actually just came across an interesting site called Unbounce. Dont worry, I dont work for em :). Looks like a good way to create landing pages that have lead gen capabilities and to A/B test them.

Depending on how readily available the leads are -- one way is to outsource the work on a site such as elance.

Another method would be to create an affiliate program and pay a commission for leads.

For a quick and simple (and cheap) solution, you can download a template and gather emails of perspective customers. You would obviously need to give them a compelling reason to fork over their email address.

Good luck

It depends on the type of leads you're planning to generate.

If someone is looking for advice on best web hosting, then you probably can get away with a few affiliate links and get paid when some one follows one of those links and signs up for service.

I run a site that deals with highly specialized market research. Often we outsource qualified leads to firms capable of fulfilling the project. Often email request is the first step, followed up with Account Executive's call back, who takes it from there.
