    Nurturing and Following Up On Leads  

    Creating a lead magnet on your website is a powerful way to turn website visitors into new clients. By implementing a lead magnet (or opt in) on your website, you have the power to collect email addresses from those who visit your website, giving you the opportunity to share your expertise in an authentic way and build your sales. Automating your follow up creates more consistency in sales and leaves you free to do what you do best!

    Part 1 - Creating a Lead Magnet on Your Website

    In this webinar you will:

    • Increase sales on your website through a systemized funnel.
    • Build credibility with prospects through content marketing.

    Part 2 - Nurturing and Following Up On Leads

    In this webinar you will:

    • Create a powerful nurturing sequence that turns website visitors to new customers.
    • Automate processes for following up with potential sales.

    Each presentation will be recorded and distributed to participants. Participants registered for both webinars will receive both recordings.

    Parts 1 and 2 are stand-alone topics, so you can register for one or both. Each one-hour webinar is $19.99 for NRWA members and $39.99 for nonmembers. Each webinar will be recorded and distributed to those who are registered; neither qualify for CEUs.

    Discounted registration pricing for both webinars:

    Member pricing for both Part I & II: $32.50 (save $7.48 from stand-alone pricing).

    Nonmember pricing for both Part I & II: $70.00 (save $9.98 from stand-alone pricing)


    About Rebecca Metz:

    In a room full of powerful entrepreneurs, Rebecca Metz realized that they were reaching the top of their game, but sadly missing the mark with getting their message out. From that, an idea was born.

    Rebecca Metz, creator of Web Pages that Sell, developed a system that helps her clients to get their magic online and get more business . . . consistently. An intrinsic educator, Rebecca’s secret sauce is taking the scary out of technology. She teaches clients to use and manage their website and integrate it with social media and other marketing tools to create a powerful brand image — one they can update as often as needed.

    “My clients understand how their branding tools work, and they have control over their technology,” she says. “They call on me when they need to, but know they have the power to make informed decisions and execute changes themselves.”

      ** Live attendance is NOT required. ALL registrants will receive the recorded link to the webinar.

      How to Create Graphically Beautiful, Yet ATS-Friendly Resumes

      Presented by Marie Plett, CERM, CPRW

      Friday, December 13, 2019

      12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m., ET 

      Stop scapegoating applicant tracking software (ATS) as your reason for creating plain, black and white resumes that blend into employers’ piles with the rest of the zebras! You need to make your clients stand out among the herd with stunning, vivid presentations that excel through even the most finnicky/tricky ATS programs. Marie will cover comprehensive information on how modern ATS translates resume elements; simple ideas and quick ATS-friendly designs that can visually transform any resume in mere minutes; and a full demonstration on how a pure ASCII resume (saved as a .docx file) can be turned into a graphic resume without compromising any of its original integrity.

      In this webinar you will learn how to:

      • Everything ATS accepts and rejects
      • How various symbols are changed in ATS
      • How to keep your presentation within ATS megabyte limits
      • Basic MS Word design techniques
      • Machiavellian strategies for getting all necessary data through the systems


      Eligible for 1 CEU. This one-hour webinar is $19.99 for NRWA members and $39.99 for nonmembers. It will be recorded and distributed to all participants.

      About Marie Plett:

      Marie Plett is a Certified Executive Resume Master who first became obsessed with resumes when she was only 12 years old and tasked with helping her recruiter parents screen out bad applications, sifting through large piles of eye-catching resumes printed out in a wide variety of papers, card stocks, and even laminates. She now works hard to bring resumes back to their “glory days” by teaching ATS-friendly design techniques to other resume writers.

      Though she started her professional career developing graphics and apparel for some of the world’s most popular fashion brands, she followed her true calling to become a resume writer and founded AspirationsResume.com in 2004. She now uses her considerable graphic design skills to create exceptional resumes that have won 2 ROAR Awards and 14 TORI Awards since 2016.

      By participating in this course and/or webinar, you are agreeing to let the instructor/facilitator call you by name during the course and/or webinar when addressing questions or information.
