Episode Highlights

[01:59] Daryl’s Entry to Lead Generation

  • Daryl was 17 and trying to find a job without any formal marketing training.
  • He put together an email campaign and reached out to different businesses online. No one was responding at first.
  • The next thing he did was send a PowerPoint presentation on what he can offer to the businesses he contacted.
  • When no one responded still, he gave a final notice. That’s when interviews were scheduled for him one after another.
  • He ended up getting a job. That was his first exposure to lead generation.

[3:31] Framing Your Message

  • Not everyone will be interested in what your business offers. So, you should find the ones who will be and focus on them.
  • Do the food court test. It is a thought experiment that can help get your audience’s attention. It lets you find out their interests and make them try your product or service.
  • At some point, you will have to sacrifice contacts and opportunities. This way, you can focus on those that fit the message you want to tell.

[06:11] Three Steps to Productive Lead Generation

  • There are three steps to the lead generation process: Get the hand raisers, qualify them, and make the deal.
  • Get the hand raisers. These are the ones who show interest in what your business has to offer.
  • Qualify your leads. Not all people interested in your products or services will be a good fit. You will need to assess them. Keep those who fit, and let go of those who don’t.
  • Make the deal. Once your leads are qualified, try to strike a deal with them to see if they convert.

[7:19] The Relevance of Habits

  • No matter how much you build your skills and strategies, you cannot be truly successful without good habits.

Daryl [7:49]: “The most successful people, you know, are the ones that have a consistent time and habitual routines that get the results.”

  • Many people talk about good time management habits. But that is lacking if you want to deliver the most productivity. People rarely talk about the relevance of energy management.
  • Taking breaks is crucial because they replenish your energy. It is hard to get things done without enough energy supply.
  • Learn about yourself constantly. What are your habits? What do you need to improve?

[13:32] Who are Your Dream 100 Clients? 

  • Like the food court test, the Dream 100 test is another thought experiment. It lets you pinpoint the quality of leads and clients you want to get.
  • First, think about your product or service. Then think about what kind of people are most likely to avail of that product or service.
  • Make a list of 100 people who you hope to be your clients. What are their qualities? What makes them ideal?
  • After making the list, begin to reach out. Along the way, you will realize that some of them are not a good fit. Then you will have to burn some bridges.

Daryl [14:11]: “It’s never gonna go perfect anyways. I wanted people to understand: progress is very messy.”

[15:46] Why Feedback Matters

  • Feedback is always a necessary step in constant improvement. It helps you address what is and isn’t effective in marketing.
  • Talk to your potential clients. Get to know them and their feedback. Try to look into what problems they have that you can offer solutions to.
  • Do not just rely on what people are saying when gathering feedback. Behaviors are more accurate information to watch out for.

[20:53] Scale Your Thinking

  • The educational system has manipulated people into thinking from a factory worker’s mindset. You will have to get out of that kind of thinking.
  • Business is a simple concept. It is about a group of people trying to solve a problem for another group. They do it through a product or service.
  • Are you providing a product or service to one person? You have to scale your thinking. Think, “How would I offer this product or service to 10,000 people?”

Kate [22:41]: “How would I serve a thousand people? And even just thinking that way, I think, is gonna expand things, potentially make it more fun, potentially create innovations you wouldn’t have thought of before.”
