Comment on Simple Tips to Generate Leads for Your Business by Credo Infotech

Great List of Tips . Just to add on to the list here are a couple more: 1. Networking groups: - Many business people go to networking functions for trade associations, chambers of commerce and other organizations on a regular basis. However, networking events are an excellent lead generation strategy for businesses, because the other business people that attend them are consumers too and need products and services just like the rest of us. 2. Alliances: - Building alliances with other businesses that target a market similar to yours is a great way to generate new leads for your business. Choose a reputable business that treats its customers well, engages in proactive marketing strategies and is open to trying new things. Once you have built a relationship with this business and have come to an agreement, you can start targeting their clients with your own marketing. 3. Brochures: - Brochures are an effective lead generation tool for businesses because they give prospects initial information on the product or business and encourage them to take the next step in the sales process. 4. Trade shows: - If you choose the right trade shows, many of the people there will be prospects that you can engage with and turn into customers.

Hi Carol The one I use is called Focus Booster, it's just a small app that you leave running on your desktop. Pretty simple, and it's been fairly effective at keeping me off Facebook when I'm up against a deadline.

Hi Craig I think this is a great idea. I actually authored this post and althought the idea of using an egg or minute timer is something I use with my high school students (I am a tutor in my other life). I hadn't thought of using a timer with my writing, but you are right.. What a great idea and thanks for the link to the timer gadget. I think this will be the first thing on my list to download tomorrow onto my new work station. ..

Re. point 2. "Work solidly for a set period of time" - this sounds like the "Pomodoro Technique" - this suggests setting a timer and working in 25 minute "sprints" each followed by a 5 minute break. It can help when you've got a lot on your "to-do" list. Supposedly as without the 5 minute breaks, your concentration levels slip over time and on hour 2 or 3 of a concentrated session, you'll actually be less productive than you would be if you'd taken frequent, short breaks. There are downloadable timer applications that run on your desktop for this and I've used it with some success on occasion. Not sure I'm disciplined enough to be a slave to it though.
