Cold Calling And Emailing
We recently got off the phone with the Owner at a Marketing company and he was dealing with a couple of sales issues that I figure you might have experience with. First he said cold calling and cold emailing doesn’t work for his business. It isn’t the traditional way, that’s why I recommended sending highly personalized emails like this one that give value first targeting, well-researched potential customers. Then he said that he has a cold-calling guy that wastes hours of time dealing with non-decision makers, etc. The solution is using lead databases and putting more time into research – that allows us to get a higher meeting book rate than regular calling. We can consistently book 20-30+ qualified meetings a month to fill up your lead and sales funnels.
As you know, Cold Email is not just fun, it works incredibly well for targeting other B2B companies that want to pay you massive amounts of money. The easiest way to find and pitch them is with Cold Email. But what do you do if they don’t respond to that first message? Sometimes, it does not matter how good your initial cold email is – until you send a follow-up, almost nobody would get back. They wait for your second email to see if you are really serious or you are just blasting out emails to a list. Luckily, you can automate the follow-ups with our email marketing software! But what about the waiting time? Well, it depends. If you are pitching someone big and really busy, you should wait at least 2-3 weeks before sending your first follow-up. On the other hand, if you are pitching a local business, you can send a follow-up after 2 days. Even for the Golden Geese companies (companies between $10-150 Million in revenue), the waiting time is the same – 2 days. There are 4 types of Follow-ups that we generally use and I am going to share them with you. Man, there are so many tips on cold emailing but if I try to write them all in this email, it would take me an eternity. But luckily with certain automated digital sales enablement tools, I only have to write it once. And I can automate sending out follow ups a billion times. I haven’t actually sent a billion emails, but I definitely have the tools to do so, and you can too!)

There are 5 major types of ads that can be placed on major media websites and social platforms globally through powerful advertisement tools available on the market. They are: Display: these combine text and images to form creatives that link back to a website of the advertisers choosing where a customer can learn more or take specific business actions. These ads can have different goals and outcomes based on your needs, and can be optimized for raising awareness, generating impressions, building a brand, and even diverting and generating traffic. Display ads can also be focused to push breaking news or corporate releases and even new or old products to the main pages or specific sections of the websites of the advertisers choosing.
In Feed ads are those are placed between the content on a page, allowing the reader to consult them naturally and with little effort. They are often slipped in between content that appears on social media and news sites that use an “infinite scroll” feature, which has become especially popular on mobile and in-app. These ads can also be linked back to specific websites, articles and pages, and are used today to develop effective marketing strategies to build up a brand or showcase products. Search: these are often called paid search advertising or search engine marketing, as it is a marketing technique that involves placing digital advertisements inside search engine results.
Companies that run search advertising campaigns have the ability to bid on keywords, and so their ads appear when people are looking for a specific product or service or even news articles which proves that this is a powerful tool for today’s business advertisers. Search ads are often placed on search engines like Google, Yahoo, Yandex, Baidu, AOL, DuckDuckGo, or Bing. But as Google owns an impressive 90 percent of the search engine market share in the United States, so it is a no brainer to focus on Google.
Contextual ads are a form of targeted advertising that involves placing advertisements on a website or other online platform that are related to the content of the page or site on which they appear. The idea behind contextual advertising is to show ads that are relevant to the interests and needs of the viewer, making it more likely that they will click on the ad and visit the advertiser’s website.
Native ads for sales are also called sponsored content, as it is a type of an advertisement that matches the form and function of the platform upon which it appears. In many cases it functions like an advertorial, and manifests as an article or editorial. The word native refers to this coherence of the content with the other media that appear on the platform. These ads reduce a consumers’ ad recognition by blending the ad into the native content of the platform, even if it is labeled as “sponsored” or “branded” content. For the past 2 years, we have been offering “display”, “in-feed”, and “search” ads to its customers using the power of Google, Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn. And now, after finally integrating displays into our sales system, we can now offer “contextual” and “native” ads through our Ad Targeting Distribution products to our valuable clients.
As Contextual ads can be targeted to specific keywords or topics, and they can appear in a variety of formats, including text, image, or video ads. These ads are typically generated by algorithms that analyze the content of a webpage and match it with relevant ads from an advertiser’s pool of available ads. It is now a popular form of online advertising because it allows advertisers to reach a specific audience that is interested in their products or services, and it can be an effective way for publishers to monetize their content. And that is why by adding it to the offering, we will become the only service provider that can effectively offer and deliver all 5 types of ad campaigns.
