Fail Fast or Win The Race?

fail fast

I met yesterday with a marketing agency owner named Nancy who told me a client-from-hell story. 

The client hired Nancy to flood his website with new leads. 

Nancy delivered. 

But when those leads landed on the site, they had just one option: Call to buy. 

The client’s phone didn’t ring so he fired Nancy. 

She tried to tell him he needed to do more on his site.

He needed to capture leads’ email addresses, follow-up with them, nurture a relationship.

Nancy noted: 

Very few leads are ready to buy NOW — or even meet now. But…

…many are willing to join your email list, engage, and buy later…

…if you give them the opportunity.

The client didn’t want that. He wanted a quick-fix. 

Here’s the thing, though…

When you chase the quick fix,
you’ll usually fail fast. 

Slow and steady wins this race. 

If you’re serious about winning the race, if you want to learn methods to steadily engage leads, build relationships with them, and inspire them to buy…

…I have a few open seats in my new do-it-with-you, small-group mastermind — Content Marketing Masters.
