Selling to Your Niche, Part 7 - Work Your Leads List

Sunday, April 19, 2009

Time to get to work. Use the leads database you have created along with your marketing vehicle of choice (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, personal email, printed mailer, etc) and begin working down your list. Every time you send information out or contact someone, note how you did it along with the date in one of the columns of your spread sheet.

I usually keep track of my marketing efforts by first trying one avenue (such as personal email), naming one column for this piece such as Email #20, than placing a date next to each entry in the database for when I sent it out. In that way you keep a history of your marketing venues and hopefully never send the same email or Tweet out to the same contact.

This might seem a tedious chore, but once you get the hang of it, the challenge of connecting with someone who wants to buy your stock images is exciting!

It comes down to finding the right person, at the right time, and having the right photograph ready to sell them when they need it. Yes, it might somewhat feel like chance - but there's no reason why you can't enhance your odds a little bit in your favor.
