Do some good, old-fashioned networking.

Social media matters, of course, but face-to-face networking is still important too—particularly if your product or service has a long sales cycle, is a big investment or requires lots of hand-holding to make a decision. Get out there and work the networks that are most likely to generate leads—whether that’s a local organization or an industry association that your best customers belong to.

Break it down.

002-Break-it-downWhat’s the best way to make your day more productive?

Break it down.

You may not be able to eat the whole frog in one morning. (In most cases, the overwhelming size of the task is part of the reason you’ve been putting it off.) Instead, break the job down into smaller parts. For example, if you’re putting off getting your financial documents ready to apply for a bank loan, think about every step involved, such as updating your accounting data, inputting your expense receipts, making an appointment to meet with your accountant, etc. Spread the smaller tasks out so that you do a few of them each day (until your “frog-eating” time has been used up). You’ll make a little progress every day. As you chip away at the frog, it will become less intimidating to you, and you’ll gain momentum as you see the end of the task in sight.

Get social.

Get social.

Use social media for more than just posting pictures of your products or tweeting about your services. Get specific by asking your fans and followers to share what you post (you’re more likely to get shares and retweets if you ask!). Create a landing page on your website and drive social traffic to that page where you can capture lead information

Block out time.

001-Block-out-timeWhat’s the best way to make your day more productive?

Block out time.

Most of us look for any excuse to not eat the frog, so it’s important to block out a period of time each morning when you’ll focus on doing this task to the exclusion of all else. If necessary, get into the office before anyone else so you can work uninterrupted, or head to a coffeehouse where you can work alone. Shutdown email and turn off your phone if you don’t think you can resist the temptation to check every incoming text.

Reward yourself.

003-Reward-yourselfWhat’s the best way to make your day more productive?

Reward yourself.

Once you’ve eaten that morning’s frog, it’s not an excuse to coast the rest of the day—but it is time to reward yourself. Take a short break (like a walk around the office to grab some coffee and check in with your employees), do some easy tasks that you enjoy (you can check more to-do’s off your list, without as much struggle as eating the frog) or do something else to reward yourself. Rewards will reinforce the frog-eating behavior and make it easier to make this new habit stick.

Tap into your satisfied customers for referrals.

004-Tap-into-your-satisfied-customers-for-referrals5 Easy Ways to Get More Leads

Tap into your satisfied customers for referrals.

Develop a referral program where you regularly ask customers to refer friends or colleagues who might be interested in buying what you sell. Referrals work best if you systematize them, so create referral forms you can include with your invoices, make it a practice to ask for referrals during follow-up calls post-sale, or set your CRM to trigger requests for referrals at specific times in the customer relationship.
