What lead generation method worked best for you in January 2017?

26 replies
It's February! At least where I'm at...

Marketing changes. We evolve with it. One day, a particular social network is high ROI, the next season it stops working.

Let's talk about your current successes.

Of all your lead generation channels and activities last month, what provided the most bang for buck?

    I have been generating leads for over 18 years. With 16+ of them using PPL offers.

    I think it comes down to what vertical you are working in.

    I monetize data (email), so it's not about the lead, but rather the data.

    I acquire fresh / targeted 3rd party data (email), which is data specific to particular vertical, in which the users have given permission to receive third party messages. So it's 100% can-spam compliant and has nothing to do with spamming.

    Verticals in which I get data for and have done extremely well with are: education, insurance, credit, loans, debt, mortgage, assistance, discount offers, homeowner offers, etc...

    So essentially whatever the vertical that I am getting data for, I then send the users a relevant offer based on their interest. So if I'm getting education data, then I send an education offer. If I'm getting auto insurance data, then I send an auto insurance offer, etc, etc...

    Now it's nowhere's near as simple as it sounds and there is a lot more to it. But this is how I have have been doing it for a very long time and it does work.

    Outside of verticals that one can get data for, I would be looking at facebook ads because of their targeting abilities. But of course, that's easier said than done and you really need to know what strategies work best with FB or you're just going to be giving your money away.

      Could you mention any sources for getting it?
      Or can you be a coach?

      1- Where to get the data from?
      2- How to use it?
      3- how to make sure it's profitable?
      4- Any more advice from you will be welcomed
      Thank you

    I used to generating leads for more than 5 years. If you are making a database of email and phone number by generating leads then you need to update database weekly or monthly so that the data must be accurate. If people change company then email and phone number is also changed, so its need to verify whether the data is correct or wrong

  • I used Facebook ads in january. I finally had some results doing them and got quite a few leads. If done right it's a very powerfool tool. My focus is though on content building and solo ads (much simpler imo).

    I'm surprised FB ads are that popular, I've always struggled to get much out of them.

    What are you all doing with targeting and creatives?

    To get more leads out of your traffic you need to improve your conversion rate. -

    1. A/B Testing- By adjusting certain elements such as removing the navigation bar, writing better headline copy, and adding customer reviews, a websites conversion rates can increase over 100%

    2. Add Testimonials and Case Studies (Social Proof) To Your Website-By adding testimonials and case studies to your website, you show your website visitors that others have come before them, are happy with you, and trust you.

    3. Add Micro-Conversions (whitepapers, eBooks, webinars)
    websites offer their visitors one opportunity to convert and its usually via their main Contact Us form

    I think old strategies STILL work.

    Like Facebook Ads, or better Solo Ads. Just go on Clickonomy or popular facebook solo ads group and see by yourself.

    in February 2017 it's good also try with Surveys, cause it's a relative fresh techniques.

    And also with Push Notifications, even if i dont try it cause for now i dont like it.

    these 2 are the main uptrend.

    And of course, the evergreen youtube.

    For January I got the most bang for my efforts with two channels equally:

    1- SEO / blogging

    2- Youtube

    And those two sources were based off of work that I did last year.

      Glad to hear of your success. Do you just publish them to kindle? I like to write about Natural health, and am working on my own e-books right now.
