How to Convert Traffic into Lead Using the Power of Social Media
RSS versus Subscriptions
RSS is a thing of the past. Agreed, it is one of the most popular methods that allow readers to subscribe to various blogs and subsequently help in lead generation. But then, the scope of RSS feeds is limited to only the time where you post a new blog or publish a new article on your site. Subscriptions on the other hand lets you keep all your subscribers updated with the latest content and also allows you to send emails, allowing you to email them for the purpose of direct marketing. Social media sites allow you to compel your end-users to subscribe without seeming too desperate.
Create your digital footprint via social media
You can also create a page on Social media site – a ‘Profile page’ or a ‘Fan page’ about your website, your product or services and let users directly “subscribe” to your posts, “follow” you, “like” the page etc. This way you will be able to convey the latest updates about your product or services to the target audience. For example, if you are going to attend a mobile app developer summit, you can create an event page for the same and ask your users to meet you there. Another good example is – if you are a cosmetics brand, you can even launch your latest product live on these sites and generate curiosity among your targeted users.
Interact with your users directly
Social networking websites like – Twitter, Facebook and even LinkedIn allow you to connect and interact directly with your users. For example, you can invite your users to comment on certain topics, hold discussion threads, share interesting posts relevant to your site or do anything that will be interesting to your users and at the same time, keep your page content updated.
Promote the website without fuss

All these steps will generate lead for you without sweat.
