The easiest way to attract your ideal clients into your business and influence their buying bahaviour is with your content. Your content will help convert cold traffic into interested email subscribers, and then into highly qualified sales leads who then talk with you and convert into ideal buying clients.
If you can describe your ideal clients pain state or current problem better than they can, they will automatically and unconsciously credit you with knowing the solution. When you know exactly who to attract with your content, you will attract more sales and convert them at a much higher percentage.
It is important to make sure your social media posting stays consistent across all of your social platforms. To help with this consistency we suggest that you post daily across all of your social platforms. That way when your ideal clients are on their social media they have a much higher chance of stumbling across one of your posts. Then when they read your posts, they will click and land on one of your blogs. Then your blog will have the same look and feel as your post and they will all provide the same consistent messaging.

Ultimately, it’s what you do with all this information that’s important. The whole point of using Google Analytics is to gather information and make improvements that will lead to your online success. By keeping track of your on-going results you will have the ability to monitor and update your site on a regular basis.
Doing so will help you identify any existing or potential issues and learn what you need to do to create a solution that will increase visitor engagement and improve user experience.
As a business owner, you already know who your ideal clients are, they are the clients you meet and as soon as you start talking about your product or service they want to know more.
You don’t have to chase after them and they simply ‘get’ what you do and you ‘get’ them. Your product or service is exactly what they have been searching for and you are able to help them resolve the exact pain or problem and achieve the results they both need and want.
Effectively understanding who makes an ideal client allows you to create content that powers your entire business, and delivers a specific message around your product or service. Your key is to define a very narrow focus, with very specific demographics or a very specific problem or need and create content around your customer purchasing decision journey. You can always expand your reach after you gain traction, but you can also become a big player in this smaller market as you grow.
There’s no longer any question that social media is a necessary marketing tool for your business, especially if you want to influence their buying behaviour, remain relevant and visible in today’s busy online world.

This is why it is important to use your social posts, blogs and eBook to help make the learning experience as easy as possible. Especially when up to 68% of your ideal clients will be doing their own research and finalising a list of companies they want to contact.
This is why we make sure you have all the tracking codes installed so that you can use them to find more ideal clients. So when your ideal clients read your articles your LinkedIn Insight Tag will fire and allow you to create a highly-converting lookalike audience.
Lookalike audiences can help you extend the reach of your advertising campaigns to more qualified prospects. We show you how to improve your campaign reach by 5-10x while still reaching the kind of highly-quality audiences that matter most to your business.
You will be able to target your ads to additional ideal clients you may not have previously considered. These ideal clients match a similar ideal client profile to your existing ideal clients — so you can start to win more deals.
Then we move onto interest based targeting, which allows you to reach members with relevant ads that match their professional interests.
Now that your Insight Tag has fired and your Facebook Pixel has fired you can create retargeting audiences. This is where you decide to show new adverts to the people who have already consumed your content so that you remain at top of mind.
Your Insight Tag and Facebook Pixel will help lower your advertising cost per clicks
It is important to accept the fact that your ideal clients are busy and have other stuff going on in their life. Remarketing gives your ideal clients a gentle reminder to finish what they started when they landed on your website.
It is also a very effective way of reinforcing your branding and messaging to your ideal clients every time they see you around. They’re slowly getting to know you, and learning to trust you, and when they finally do have a free moment, they are increasingly likely to do business with you.
This increases your chances of converting website traffic into interested email subscribers and then influencing their buying decisions.
The benefit of dealing with just your ideal client is, it’s ideal, it’s a whole lot easier. They’re going to, as Simon Sinek says, “Not buy what you do, but buy why you do it.” The point of your blogs and social media posts is not to just attract anyone that might need your product or service. The point of your content is to do business with people who believe in what you believe.
Your product or service content highlights their priorities, addresses the problem they are currently focused on, and delivers the solution they are searching for. When you can attract your ideal client, everything falls into place and converting cold traffic into ideal buying clients, becomes a whole lot easier.
Now that your traffic is increasing, you need to be able to convert this new traffic into interested email subscribers, otherwise you run the risk of letting them bounce away never to return…To do this you will need a Lead Magnet.
This is something you use to convince your ideal client to hand over their email address. Although your ideal clients will probably be reluctant to hand over their email address for just anything, which means you need to offer something that has perceived value.
This is why we create three different lead magnets for you so that you have a much higher chance of collecting more email addresses. The first is an eBook which uses all of your answers in such a way that it creates 3 chapters. Typically these eBooks have between 40 to 100 pages, so they are very useful.
Your ideal client will get a huge amount of value from this type of eBook and you can use it as a selling tool. If you meet a new potential client and run out of time, you can now send them your eBook and they will get exactly what you do, which is perfect for increasing your conversions.

Then we produce a webinar and workshop for you. These are very powerful conversion tools because you are able to interact with your ideal clients on a live basis. Which helps to build trust, relationships and prove that you are an expert.
It’s then important to keep interacting with your new traffic and interested email subscribers. This can be done by creating social groups on platforms like LinkedIn or Facebook. This is where you can create a group on a specific subject and invite everyone to join in on the discussions.
The great advantage of groups is that every post you put in will go to every person. This means you can constantly interact with all of your community. It helps to notify people about your blogs, webinars and workshops. You can also launch promotions and get a much higher conversion rate.
