Ready to re-engage your leads? Let’s talk strategy. There are three steps: Collect leads, re-engage and drive them to an offer, and make it easier to purchase. David Bonney, Carey Ballard, and demand gen specialist Jared Kimball talk about ways to do those three things through low-entry point offers. Got a bunch of small offerings? You can create campaigns to warm your cold leads and close a sale. Have a service-based business with high price tags and find it hard to get people to commit? We have a fix for that.

And watch for episode 34 in two weeks, when we drill down even further into the specific tactics for re-engaging your leads.

Way back in the early days of Infusionsoft, Clate and Scott had a truck that didn’t work so reliably.

Clate and Scott share what that incident taught them, namely that it’s relationships, not appearances, that make a deal, and that everything is a season—with a bit of perspective and humor, you’ll get through the tough times in your business and your life.

It’s never too late—or too early—to plan for your business. Check out our ebook, “Your Game Plan.”
