5 ways you can collect leads on your website:

1. Use Newsletter Signups (AWeber/MailChimp)

Newsletters Signup forms or boxes are useful tool to effortlessly and quickly grab your lead contact information. They have two fields, name and email address, to grab the information you need to follow up with your prospective customer.
AWeber and MailChimp are the best list building tools available on the Internet today. You can easily setup the “newsletter form” using their pre-set templates and changing few settings, and voila, you have a simple, yet powerful newsletter signup form on your site.
Just keep the signup form simple (only two fields as I’ve stated above) and include a “privacy” note at the bottom, like “We respect your privacy. We won’t spam you. Promise!”

2. Use a Good Web Form

Besides newsletters, you can also grab your lead’s contact information through a web form on a particular page such as “request a quote” page, or “contact us” page, in general.
Unlike newsletter signup forms, contact us/ request a quote forms has few more additional fields such as “subject,” “phone number,” “website URL,” among few, but they must always be optional to make it hassle-free to contact you.
Do not scare your visitors away by including “fax,” “address,” and other unnecessary items. Keep it simple!

 

3. Offer Freebies on landing pages

Here’s another simple little trick you can use to collect leads on your website – at the end of the page, offer free products (ebooks, audios, seminars, videos, etc) relevant to the content on that page.
For example, if your visitor lands on a “how to generate more traffic” page on your blog post, include a relevant FREE ebook on “30 Killer Ways to Increase More Site Traffic for FREE,” at the end so that they can download it in exchange of their name and email address.
Not only this method gives additional information regarding the topic that’s in the book, but it also gives your readers a reason to leave their contact information (name and emails address) on your site – i.e. exchange something for something else.
Offering freebies on your site is a very powerful method to effortlessly stay in touch with your prospective client!

There are several simple, yet effective ways to get free leads on your site, including email signatures, forums author box, or simple “call to action” at the end of your articles, pages, or blog posts. Most visitors really do NOT know what to do after reading your content.

You’ll need to offer information as well as strong call to action to keep things balanced. People do NOT always visit your site for tips only. They also want to see what you have to offer them and how they can quickly access it.
