How Much is it Costing Your Business to Not Have All the Leads & Appointments You Want?

Most businesses are great at turning appointments into paying clients, but when you don’t have appointments, you don’t have cashflow, your business is stagnant, and life is stressful...

Cashflow Roller Coaster?

One month you feel confident because your business brings in good money, but the next month it just brings in disappointment.

Stressed About ‘Your’ Business?

You go to work every day hoping things will change for the better, but you stay awake at night thinking about the “what ifs.”

Inconsistent Appointments?

One week your calendar is booked full of paying clients and ideal prospects, but the next week all you can focus on is the empty slots waiting to be filled.

Can’t Grow ‘Your’ Business

You know that the work you do makes a profound impact on the clients you serve, but you’re just not sure how to get more exposure for your business.

Worried About Downsizing or Closing Down?

Many business owners fear having to possibly get a job, but you’ve secretly considered it or know you’ll have to if you don’t get more clients.

Unsure Where to Get New Clients?

You know paying clients are the lifeblood of your business, yet you just can’t seem to find a way to consistently find more prospects to talk to.

Cashflow Roller Coaster

More appointments typically mean more sales, and this boost in cash flow can create more financial stability and help you reach your business growth goals quickly and easily.

More Clients

More appointments means more clients, and oftentimes happy clients refer their friends and family. Building your referral business is just one more way to grow your business without expensive advertising.

Stability & Growth

When you have more clients consistently, not only do you generate more cash flow, you also have financial stability in your business which leads to tremendous peace of mind.

We Understand the Challenges of Finding New Leads & Booking More Appointments for Your Business

At 540 Strategies we know that you want your business to be financially stable and successful. In order to do that, you need a dependable way to get new leads and turn them consistently into new appointments.

The problem is that while most businesses are amazing at making their clients happy, nobody really shows you how to generate new clients in a way that’s dependable and consistent. Advertising can  be really complicated and expensive, with no promise of a return, and even worse, relying on your  existing network can leave you high and dry once you’ve exhausted all your resources.

Plus, it can feel like another full-time job trying to market your business when you’re trying to figure out the right strategies and systems to run effective and consistent lead generation campaigns. And let’s face it, “slow months” can be downright scary and stressful when you don’t have enough appointments booked in your calendar.

We believe it shouldn’t be hard getting clients for your business.

We understand it can be difficult deciding who to trust or where to turn for help because so many marketing agencies charge for marketing plans that sound great on paper but end up leaving you with nothing more than a hole in your pocket because they don’t fit your business model, or they really don’t generate new clients for your business in a quick and systematic way.
That’s why we’ve spent the last 20-plus years discovering what works best…and using that insight to bring you simple, done-for-you lead generation and appointment setting systems that are relatively quick to deploy…and proven to work. If you’d like to talk more about generating new leads and booking more appointments for your business, here’s what to do next:
1. Schedule a call. This call will take no more than 15 minutes, and during this conversation we will discover if we can actually bring you all the leads and appointments you want. There’s no hard selling, and we promise we’ll be up front an honest whether one of our plans is a good investment for you and your business. We’ll start off by asking you a few questions about your business, and if we don’t feel confident we can get you more leads and appointments, we’ll tell you.

2. Create a plan. If we both agree that this is a good fit, we’ll come up with a plan of action and determine how many appointments you want to generate each month.

3. Get booked appointments. After putting our system to work, you’ll start to see more booked appointments on your calendar. You can continue with the plan as long as you’d like, and you can even continue to get new leads with our system ongoing. So, schedule a call by clicking the button below, so you can stop worrying about getting more appointments and instead have peace of mind about growing your business.

Questions & Answers

What it’s like using our lead generation and appointment setting services

Question: I’ve tried something like this before, and it didn’t work. Why try your service?

Answer: Our services are typically multi-faceted meaning we use several strategies to reach out and connect with your ideal prospects and existing clients. We pride ourselves in being genuine, not salesy, in all our outreaches, and we’ve gotten enough positive feedback from our own clients and prospects to know that our approach is different from anything else in the lead generation and appointment setting space.

Question: What happens if it doesn't work for me?

Answer: We’re up front and honest that we aren’t miracle workers, and we don’t have a crystal ball when it comes to marketing, but we’ve been around for a long time and have a pretty good handle on what works and what doesn’t. Every business owner and business is unique, so there will almost always be some tweaking involved in any campaign. Most of the time we can adjust quickly and new results follow, but it is almost impossible to totally nail it the first time out of the gate. Based on the campaigns we choose for your business, we’ll tell you up front the realistic time frame to expect, and of course we want you to be happy with your results. That’s why we don’t require contracts (with the exception of our Ultimate Agency Package), so you can cancel at the end of any month.

Question: Are your services too expensive?

Answer: We’ve designed service packages to meet our clients’ budgets and time commitments, so we have options that range anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars every month. Most of our overhead comes from humanization (having real humans set up and run your day-to-day campaigns) and automation (the software we use), so your price will depend on whether we’re doing everything for you (most expensive), or you purchase a seat in our software (least expensive) and manage your own campaigns. We don’t believe in handing over the keys to a Lamborghini without knowing how to drive it first, so we typically don’t allow clients to just buy a seat and not know what to do. Purchasing just a seat usually happens after we create all your messaging, set up your campaigns, and make sure everything is working and lining up to your goals, so just know it may be a little more expensive up front, but it’s so worth the investment on the back end.

Question: How much work is involved?

Answer: For us, most of the work is up front because we have to design your messaging and your offer, build searches for your leads, create your campaign(s) in the software, and adjust the campaigns as needed to make sure they’re getting results. After that, the amount of work on your end depends on two things; first, how much work or involvement you personally want in managing your campaigns; and second, how much you want to go the “extra mile” following up with prospects outside the campaign we’re working on together. Jaime meets with clients routinely to touch base via Zoom, phone call, or email, depending on the client’s preference (and as long as it’s not 3 a.m., randomly on a Sunday afternoon, or for the 6th time in one day). 🙂

Question: Is the process going to take too long?

Answer: How long have you been waiting to get new leads and booked appointments in your business? The question to your question is meant to be humorous, but what if we told you it might take 30 to 45 days to get 5 to 10 appointments in your calendar? That might be the realistic answer if you decide to implement a new strategy on a platform like LinkedIn and you don’t even have a profile. Some of our clients get appointments within 7 days, but it all depends on the strategy and the state of their current prospect list. The real question to ask yourself is how long are you willing to wait in complacency, getting the same results you’re getting? Having to wait 30 to 45 days might feel like 5 seconds if you’ve been trying for years to consistently book more appointments with little to no success.
