That’s how much time the average American spends on their mobile devices, every day. We’ve become tethered to our phones and tablets. Most people don’t go anywhere without them. That’s why marketers are now starting to use mobile devices to build their email lists.
You can get people to opt-in to your email list right from their phones! I’m talking about SMS lead generation, where you invite people to text a word to a specific phone number and then ask for their email address.
I've seen people grow their email list through SMS text messages on stage at events, live on webinars (and on webinar replays, of course) and Greg Hickman of Mobile Marketing Engine even considers opting in via SMS the #1 tactic podcasters should be using to build their list. It makes complete sense too because people are typically listening on the go with their mobile devices already in hand.
Our good friend Amy Porterfield (featured in SPI Podcast Session #137) has recently started including an SMS lead-gen call-to-action at the end of each of her podcast episodes. Brilliant—and something I'm going to start doing in upcoming podcast episodes as well.
One of the big barriers to this kind of marketing is obviously the technology. Back in the day, I remember seeing business-related SMS messaging only in the retail sector, and then when it finally got into the online space, only a few companies with a large budget could afford the ability to use text to build their email list.
As many of you know, I'm a compensated advisor and affiliate for LeadPages®—the company I recommend highly for their landing page templates to help you grow your list. We've featured LeadPages co-founder Clay Collins in two of SPI's most downloaded and actionable podcast episodes to date—SPI Podcast Sessions #78, and Session #119, and also this webinar replay with even more rapid list building information.
Well, the folks over at LeadPages just launched a brand-new SMS lead-gen tool that makes all of this stuff super easy. Several of you already have LeadPages, and whether you have a subscription already or not, you're going to love this.
Now, in less than 45 seconds, you can set up this lead capture tool to grow your email list. This new tool is called LeadDigits™.
LeadPages launched this new tool in March and already, users are seeing average conversion rates of 91%!
This new addition makes LeadPages® the only conversion platform that lets you build your email list using landing pages, social media, email and SMS text messages.
The great thing about LeadDigits is you can use it to capture leads anywhere people carry their cell phones.
No landing page or computer necessary.
Imagine being able to get people to opt into your list while they’re listening to your podcast, watching your video or even walking down the street.
SO HOW DOES LEADDIGITS® WORK?
Basically, you just ask people to join your list by texting a unique word to a specific LeadDigit™ phone number. They’ll immediately receive a message asking them to reply with their email address. Once they give you their email address, you can add them to your email list, and even sign them up for a webinar, all in the same conversation.
LeadPages members are using LeadDigits™ in all kinds of ways:
Live Presentations: Presenters are announcing their LeadDigit™ from the stage to get opt-ins during their speeches.
Events: Companies are using LeadDigits™ at conventions and trade shows instead of links on flyers and cards.
Concerts: Musicians are using LeadDigits™ to get folks on their mailing list for their next show.
Stores: Brick and Mortar businesses are putting flyers advertising specials with LeadDigits™ in their windows or on their chalkboards.
Signage: Real estate agents are putting LeadDigits™ on For Sale signs
In my next batch of podcast episodes that I'll be recording for the summer, you'll hear me using LeadDigits as well. I'll likely include LeadDigits at the end of my videos for SPI TV as well since many viewers are actually watching those videos on their mobile devices too.
