In regard to your website visitors, The ToFu (Top of the Funnel) visitors are the bulk of the visitors coming to your webite on a daily basis. They are in the top of the buying cycle, this visitor knows there is a problem that needs to be solved (and found you). Now your job is to turn them into a potential lead. The easiest way to do this is to give them some low-risk content and request some of their information. Typically the First Name, Last Name, Company (if applicable), email address are common fields of information we reccomend asking for.
Here's 6 Ideas for Great ToFu Offers:
- Free Whitepapers: Provide Useful content that the consumer will want in the beginning stages of the sales/buying cycle.
- Free Tip Sheets or Guides: Provide information that your prospects need to pay attention to when purchasing. For Instance, a building contractor may provide a Tip Sheet titled: "9 way to make sure you're hiring a licensed contractor"
- Free eBooks: eBooks are very similar to whitepapers, typically they're a little more extensive, you can find eBooks from 7-50 pages depending on the content. Some Examples topics might be: "How to Leverage Social Media for Business" or "5 Steps to a Successful Web Design"
- Free Checklists: Checklists are a great way to streamline and inform your prospect of your process prior to them onboarding as a client. For Instance: A Sign Company can provide a checklist to explain the process of applying for a sign permit. By providing the checklist, prospects will be seeking that information prior to them needing a sign in most cases. This can be a great point to reach out to the lead.
- Free Videos: Its apparent how much video has integrated itself into internet marketing. While you can hire a professional video production company, with the latest mobile devices creating a video is easier than ever. Make sure you're sharing relevant information.
- Free Kits (a combination of the above information): If you have some content that isn't converting visitors by itself, try combining it and making a kit. See if your conversion rates improve.
