So what are the odds of winning the lottery?  Well it depends on what lottery you join.

If you are in the business of buying many lottery tickets every time they have a draw, you might want to consider the math before investing again.  Here are some numbers;

As an example, this is the worlds most popular lottery, the United Kingdom’s National Lottery.  Since October 2015 it requires players to select 6 numbers from 59 and guess all six correctly. The chance of winning has thereby reduced (since it had been a 6-of-49 game) from 1 in 13.98 million to the current 1 in 45 million. You will get the odds by multiplying multiplying 59 × 58 × 57 × 56 × 55 × 54, and then dividing by (6 × 5 × 4 × 3 × 2 × 1); the exact figure is 45,057,474.  Wow what a scam!  There is a chance that nobody’s number will even be picked. The factorial notation, used below and shown by an exclamation mark (!), is merely a mathematical shorthand for writing out long strings of multiplication. Example: 5 factorial, written as 5!, is 5 × 4 × 3 × 2 × 1, which equals 120.

To give you a comparison, you would be more likely to win this perticular lottery than you are to get struck by lightning 6 times in your lifetime.  Which has actually happend to a person before.  The fact that he lived was truly incredible.  How can you play a lottery that has better odds?  In fact there is a superior lottery that won’t have a prize that high but it definitely has better odds than the British National lottery.

That would be the Thailand Lottery!  The odds of winning this lottery come in at 1 in 1 million.  A far better figure than virtually any other major lottery.  This is the only form of gambling in Thailand and is strictly regulated by the govt.  The grand price is 30 million Baht which translates to about \$850,000 USD.

If you are looking for Thailand Lottery Tips and results I would suggest googling it and searching for the best website that is relevant for your search.

Traditional advertising works!  (Bet you didn’t think I was going to say that)  But it really does, that’s why people still do it.  Running radio ads, giving away promotional products, and running direct mail is a great way to generate new clients.  Many businesses are kind of stuck this way spending \$20-\$70 per lead that they generate.

2. Instigram

IG is actually owned by Facebook so you can advertise your brand on both social platforms at the same time, effectively doubling your reach.  If you are a local business looking to build your brand spending \$5-10 daily on this can generate a massive amount of brand awareness.  But who has the time to manage all of this?  Well you can use automated services such as buffer and Quu to help schedule and manage your social media.

Youtube is currently the second largest search engine worldwide!  Generating simple YT videos can drastically increase your ability to convert visitors to your website into customers.  Shooting a simple video outlining your products and services will help visitors get a better idea of what your business is all about and why they should do business with you.  You also have the ability to rank YT videos in the search engines for more traffic to your website.

Google is the very best way to advertise to the most targeted leads possible.  When someone types in “vancouver plumber” and you show up at the top of the list that is the ultimate way to generate business.  They are looking for what you offer, you are the number one result, and all you have to do is answer the phone and offer to help.  It’s just that easy!  It’s called search engine optimization (SEO) for short and it’s a very difficult skill to master.  I would suggest working with the professionals over at AJS SEO to get your website to the top of Google.  Visit their website www.ajsseo.com and ask for a free seo analysis of your website.

There you have it, the best ways to generate leads in the 21st century.  With the internet being the main hub for attention these days there is really no other medium to communicate effectively unless you’re talking to them face to face.  But why reach 50 people a day face to face in 8 hours when you can reach 50 thousand people or more daily through online advertising.
