When you think about it, the first thing you need to do in any business, is get leads! Of course, you have to have the whole foundation built first. You need a website, and an e-mail address. You’ll need a phone number, where people can reach you. As soon as you are ready to make your first sale, you’ll need to go get your first customer. This is when you know it’s time to use 17hats.com to handle the incoming leads.
You’re going to want to provide a form on your website, where people can fill in their information, and let you know they need your help. When I learned that 17Hats.com could handle this, it was a no brainer to use this. The best place to have your leads come in, is in the very place where you can easily track and manage them. Since you can create automated workflows to get and keep in touch with your leads in 17Hats.com, it makes sense to use this. Then as you guide them through the process to become a client of yours, you will find 17Hats.com to be tremendously useful!
In this lesson we’re going to create the form. In the next lesson, we’ll embed it in your WordPress site.
