Generating leads is a cornerstone of all businesses who operate online. If you’re here, I’m sure you know what a lead is, although you might be stumped as to how to increase the volume you receive. In this brief article, I’ll give you a neat idea to generate more leads. And as a result, build your customer database and bring in more traffic to your website all at the same time, without lifting a finger.
Building your customer database is no easy feat. Collecting emails and other information from your customers is a challenge we all face. How can you convince your audience to hand over this critical data? Good news – I don’t have a list of 20+ ways to do it, I have a single answer.
You must be providing value to your audience. Whether in the form of insightful information, free downloads, consultations or something else. Offering a strong incentive in exchange for their email is always the best bet. What if there was another way? A more interactive method that made their already busy lives easier.

Offering a small web application or calculator on your website can improve the likelihood of a visitor becoming a customer, especially if you can filter them in to your sales funnel and marketing automation. I can’t answer this question for you without insight into your business, but could a calculator benefit you? I am not talking about a “1 + 1 = 2” type calculator, think bigger. Reservation estimations, finance or mortgage calculators, assembly calculators, quoting calculators. The list can literally go on and on if you think deep about it.
