Lightbulb Is anyone buying leads?

Hi everyone, I have some pretty lofty goals this year including building my team like crazy! So, I'm thinking about buying leads each month. Are any of you purchasing leads? If so, I'd love to hear what kind, where from, and how you'e doing with them. Thanks!

I've had better results generating my own leads. Getting out there, networking with others, promoting, social media, etc. seems to produce higher quality traffic for me.

I have tried buying leads in the past but found it to be a waste of money, ones that were meant to be targeted didn't seem to be at all. Now I generate my own leads which convert much better

I have bought leads in the past with other businesses but building relationships is better I think, either with social media or with one on ones.

I appreciate all your feedback!! I agree, generating your own leads and building relationships is best and I am definitely doing that too. I've heard good things about the lead company Dani Johnson has partnered with, so I'm considering giving them a try so I can amplifying my efforts.

For several years, I owned a leads company that provided leads to clients in 26 different companies.

I no longer sell leads or recommend the purchasing of leads....and here's why:

It's FAR easier today than ever before to generate your own leads so that -- when you contact them -- they actually know your name, know who you are and remember requesting the information about your business.

And when you generate high-quality leads yourself, you don't have to worry nearly as much about contacting someone whose information was sold to dozens of other marketers....or whose information might have been collected unethically.

For those reasons, I think you're far better off learning how to set up your own lead capture pages and traffic sources. I would no longer recommend that anyone "purchase leads" as a way of building their business.

Tony

Default Why I don't recommend buying leads...

When you buy leads, you don't truly know the source, or the message in the advertising that the lead responded to..

I coach my clients on how to create effective advertising and EASILY create personalized landing pages that convert well and brands you so your lead immediately knows who you are. I'd be happy to help you set this up.

Yes, I have purchased leads in the past and calling all of them takes lots of time and energy.These days, generate your own is your best bet and its not too hard.

There are some companies that do sell leads. There is one that is good but I never used them before and I am not sure if they are still in business.

They are called:

LeadersClub.com

If you are thinking about generating your own leads, I would go with getting your own lead capture page, and also mastering online marketing. You can do videos, articles, pay per click, forum marketing, social media.
