Default Leads

If you buy leads from a company, what do you look for?

I look for a supplier who will accept a No Competition clause in our agreement, otherwise the leads you get are often sold to to other people time and time again making them pretty worthless.

Hard to find a supplier and you need to order about 50K worth so I piggyback on a very affective ad co-op and grab my piece of it at $100 a time.

I tend to find the quality of leads I generate is much higher. You want to make sure the provider you work with sends valid leads and not a bunch of fake ones.

Yep, many are resold over an over again, and some are fake traffic made with bots while others are some poor sod in India? (or similar) being paid almost nothing and filling out biz op forms by the thousands.

That's why I only use packages from agencies with a No Competition clause written it their supply contract and who only gather those leads from major media and ad agencies.

Don't buy leads is my advice !

I have been self employed for more than 40 years, my experience has been, if the leads were actually leads, why would they sell them to you ?

The quality of the leads are 99.99% not any better than just cold calling out of the yellow pages, any list from any business directory.

Your time and your money.

It all depends on what you plan to do with the leads, I think.

I don't buy leads anymore but when I did, I found that if I was calling them myself, I liked the fresh live leads, meaning I was calling them within minuted of them filling out some online landing page. If I was running them through an autodialer, then I'd go with a cheaper lead. And if it was an email campaign then I'd use a really cheap older list.

A lead is a lead... in my opinion, all it takes is some skill to turn them into a prospect.

I agree (and have to disagree a bit with BryanB above). I've said above what I do and then they are dropped automatically onto one of my sales funnel and about 50% of them are converting to sales as you see here:


The point is that you have to source good buyer leads, then use them well.

Default Tim Sales

I don't buy leads but if I did I would only trust Tim Sales. Here is his website - www.firstclassmlmtools.com.

Thank you,

Those were my favorite too but I couldn't find his website anymore when I went to look for it - Thanks for posting it! Once I found Tim's leads, that was all I ever bought when I still worked leads.

I was a outside guest speaker at an online Question & Answer session the other day and the question that came up, in several different ways, was "Why don't I get good results from all these leads I'm buying?"

I see the guestion coming up here, and in other threads, and it promted me to write a post on my blog to outline why I get such good qualified, exclusive, leads. Leads that are a large part of getting the high conversions I enjoy.

Maybe the post will be helpful to members here?
