2021 Marketing Plan – How to Maximize Lead Flow!
This marketing plan is focused on cutting off the excess and maximizing all of your results by focusing on what is proven to work. This will involve technical things. You don’t need to know the details about each and every one of these things, but you do need to have an idea so that you can double-check the people who are doing the work for you. You need to be sure you’re getting the things you can’t go without if you want to grow your business in 2021. The dollar we spend today should produce a compounding impact in 2022 and 2023.
If you’re not getting all the things you set out to get when you started this business, then it’s not about branding. You need to get down to growing the bottom line. That’s what this plan’s about. It will enhance your reputation score and help you generate more business, maximize lead flow, and enhance your brand.
For those of you that have been attending our webinars, you know we are advocates of a system to get you accelerated results known as the 12 Step Roadmap. When you combine each step with others, it will help you grow your business.
For instance, if you have a great website and add ecommerce but you’re not ranked on page one of Google, or you’re not driving leads and opportunities to your website, then your website and ecommerce system will probably not do well. Every single one of the elements on the roadmap is interdependent.
So, we’ll recommend that you follow the system and implement the right things, in the right order, at the right time, to truly gain the results that you can from each one of these steps.

However, today, we’re going to focus on the 12 Step Fast Track Focus, which is taking the nuts and bolts of the 12 Step Roadmap, condensing the ones we need to focus on right now to consolidate our funds and get more results into six primary elements.
Strategy and Management: Make sure you’re working with experts. They have to know heating and air conditioning, search engine optimization, web, security, development, schematic marketing, AMP (accelerated mobile pages), and lots more. This means that you need at least 1% of different expert types. You can’t get everything in one body.
Website: You need a designer, a developer, maintenance people who help you make the changes necessary and keep up with regular maintenance. You also need a security expert who can prevent hackers from hacking your stuff.
Content: Content is your ability to speak. You always have to invest time or money here. It needs to continue to grow and improve, strengthen, and lengthen.
On Page SEO: This is the ability to label, provide definition, and instructions to Google and those consumers who’re looking to find what you have. It is properly labeling metadata, headings, titles, and everything else.
Off Page SEO: Off page SEO is proof, endorsement, validation. It has to work together with on page SEO, and they only work when you have content. Content only works when you have a website that is properly designed, maintained, and is secure. Off page SEO is the link building that makes Google believe your web page has more expertise than the rest of the 250 million people trying to get found for the same phrase, same service, same product, in the same city.
Conversions: Everything up to this point is designed to ensure that you are an option for consumers looking to buy your product and services. When they get there, you need to make it easy for them to do business with you. You need to make it easy for them to convert based on the tools, activities, actions, and time that they choose.
We know that the people who are looking for your products and services will do a Google search. For you to make any money you need to be in the top ten of the results page. The search phrase the consumer uses affects the number of results displayed for the search. Although you need a lot of work to get in the top ten, in the meantime, go after phrases, that is services that people want to buy in cities that you serve, that have low competition but a high volume of searches. You can start making money quickly on those search terms, while you work on the more difficult phrases that might take months or years to be able to achieve.
- Domain Selection: Google prefers the https domain, not http. Google also prefers the .com, not .biz or .net. Purchase your domain from Google. Your email, apps, documents, analytics, and so on should all be from Google. Make it simple by using Google for all your technology needs.
- Domain Based Email: Just use Google.
- Tech and Maintenance Basics: You need to have a server and security in place. You need to renew backups every month. Updates need to be done to your website, plug-ins, and your website needs to have an administration team that takes care of everything.
- Branding: You do need a logo, but branding is more than that. Branding is the feeling people have and the conversation they have about your company in your absence. It takes time.
- Design: Your colors and trademark, or brand mark, are supposed to flow into your logo, web, trucks, social media sites, shirts, gifts, cards, and so on. Try to be consistent but be ready to evolve. Your design team should report to your development team; so they get guidance and oversight. So they don’t get too creative with the design and negatively affect the development.
- Development: Your development team works with everything that has to do with coding and website, automation, and integration. Your development team should report to your security and SEO team. This is because developers can build websites that are insecure or demolish the SEO strategy.
