Where Will Your Projects Come From?
GSLI runs a multi-faceted marketing program that focuses on 6 pillars of lead generation. Each pillar has key performance indicators they need to meet each year for total number of qualified projects.
Our staff dedicates the time to call and engage with projects we identify to determine the quality and level of engagement each and every lead wants to receive.
Our system is programmed to detect key word indicators on the internet that alert us to projects in various stages of their search. Thorough research and follow up is conducted once a warm lead is identified.
Industry Lead Nurturing
Our Lead Nurturing System connects with 50,000 companies every month. We continually engage and nurture these companies until they are ready to “raise their hand” and discuss their new location opportunities.
Trade shows are a horrible ROI for expansion leads, but are the best way to make face to face contact with numerous companies in key industry sectors. Our clients can attend these shows at no charge while our team identifies new project opportunities.
Having our own magazine allows us to use this forum to educate companies about our services and run polls asking them about their expansion/relocation plans. Global Trade Magazine’s readers are US-based companies that do business globally. This industry sector accounted for 85% of the growth in the US economy.
Our website is rated #1 organically on google and receives over 500,000 targeted visitors annually. This provides us the unique opportunity to conduct additional pools and surveys along with offering our services at no charge to our companies that have expansion or relocation plans.
Frequently Asked Questions
GSLI, Global Site Location Industries, is a full service economic development consulting firm. From marketing to lead generation, print media to online advertising, no other company can offer you the experience and depth of understanding that GSLI can.
No. That is what makes GSLI unique. We do not charge the projects anything, ever. That means that the company will not pay GSLI a retainer and is never charged a consulting fee, unless specifically contracted for incentive negotiations services. All of GSLI’s financial support comes from community member investments.
No. Anyone who makes a guarantee like that is lying. There is no way to guarantee that a company will come to your area, until they move the first box into a building. GSLI will guarantee that we will do everything humanly possible to get a company to land in your area. Period.
