For brick-and-mortar stores, lead generation through cold calls and cold emails just doesn’t cut it. There are several unconventional methods that work, however. One is leveraging know-how videos on YouTube or Vimeo. Another option is to follow the leads of Macy’s and McDonald’s and use QR Codes and NFC tags on print marketing and packaging. AMA (Ask Me Anything) appearances on social media can generate leads, as can answering questions on Quora. Even email can work when marketing automation tools are utilized. Experiment with these and other unconventional methods to discover what works best for your business.
