    I am skeptical about the leads. Haven't tried it out too.
    Wish someone here who have experienced it just brief us
    about it.

    I have never tried them before but was thinking about getting them in the past when I was with Getresponse.

    I heard some good reviews and some bad reviews about them.

    What I would do is to actually buy the least amount of leads and see if they are any good. Remember, what works for one marketer may not work for the other.

    You just have to test them and see for yourself.

      I haven't tried it but I heard that the leads tend to just trickle in. In other words, you could be waiting ages for the order to complete.

    These leads are co-registration leads - so this is important to keep in mind when marketing to these leads.

    You will need to "ease" into these leads and try to warm them up before pitching any products to them.

    Something else to keep in mind is that the leads often seem to be delivered slower than expected.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers,
    Coby

      Hi Owen,

      No you don't have to be a GetResponse customer. The leads can be exported to a .csv file/or emailed to you.

      Overall I think Coby and Talfighel gave some solid perspective too and I appreciate that. It's important to remember that how you create the call-to-action of your ad will influence who opts-in.

      Regards,
      jim

    Don't bother. It's a waste of your money. I've tested it myself a few times. They are junk, and at the price you pay, you can get much better leads yourself.

    Problem with co-reg leads is this…

    Most of the people who co reg don't speak english. THey see the extra check boxes after opting in and assume they are terms and conditions they need to agree to.

    I know one warrior who bought 100k leads from Get Response and the #'s were beyond poor.

    I should also add I love Get Response as my auto responder!

    Getresponse leads are very expensive for the quality that you get. I would probably advise you to stay away from them. I use Safe-Swaps and do really well at building my list and making sales in the process with OTOs.

      My only knowledge of them is that they are freebee suckers. Many of the leads have just opted out of something and get the clickbox for the free stuff and then bail...waste!

    Only reason I ever bought them was to add value to myself as a customer. For some reason, it seemed to generate some goodwill with them.

    They aren't valuable leads, though.

    I like getresponse as my autoresponder but there are some ways that I can generate more than investing on their package.

    gr leads are better if you know how to flip them immediately to your aweber list. I do it by offering a massive free offer right after I get them from getresponse and then offer a $1 trial to one of my products. If they take that extra step they turn out to be good - but only 1 in 5 (sometimes it's as bad as 1 in 10) do so. So yeah the .38 cents per lead is misleading because in the end it will cost you more like $1.50-$3.00 (or even more) per lead.

    The leads I've gotten (based on IP and emails) seem to be english speakers so it's never been a problem for me...

    But as someone else said, they are very slow in coming.

      Interesting info - thank you for sharing.

      Just curious though - why is it necessary to flip them to your Aweber list?

        Could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure what Dave is referring to here is further qualify them into your primary mailing list / lead funnel.

        If not you should do it anyway, and if you read my post above you'll understand why you should be doing this.

        So you have two mailing lists (to keep things simple).

        Your primary list, and the new list your co-reg leads are being added to.

        Your primary list has already...

        1) Qualified themselves by clicking somewhere to arrive at your site (adwords ad or other - even an organic SEO listing is an initial pre qualifer) and...
        2) Further qualified themselves by opting into your list after they discovered who you are and what you're really offering after they've checked out your website. That's why they are more responsive.

        Your co-reg list has only qualified themselves by essentially taking that clicking step (well checking an optin box on a co reg form).

        So they need further qualification before you start treating them how you might treat your "regular subscribers".

        Assume you give out a free report to your normal optins.

        Rather than giving it out in the first email you send to your co-reg leads (even if it was the hook you used in the headline for your co-reg lead) - you can get them to click on a link within the email to download it (your first email's content essentially becomes whatever information you would've usually presented on the webpage you use to try and generate a regular onsite optin).

        If you have a list segmenting tool, those clicking that link within that email to get the report, can automatically be taken off your co-reg lead mailing list, and automatically be placed on your regular mailing list.

        That's because now, they are AS QUALIFIED as those who would've come from your own optin form on your own website.

        So in Dave's case, he is seeing around 1 in 5 co-reg leads doing that with his current setup.

        That means he's paying about 5 x $0.38 or $1.90 per "qualified lead".

        That's not bad at all.

        If you segment and filter your lists as mentioned above, you can then continue to work the rest of the co-reg leads that didn't take that extra step to do so.

        If you don't want to get fancy, simply resending the exact same email several times can help increase open rates and qualify more leads.

        Keep in mind that your already qualified leads have been removed from this co-reg list so you won't be upsetting them.

        However, obviously not all people are going to qualify themselves further (just like every adwords click doesn't convert into something). So what you can do - assume your co-reg leads are generally interested in, let's say "gardening", is queue up an automated follow up sequence of emails offering them other useful gardening advice (and offers) i.e. aquaponics, composting, lawn care etc and so on.

        Stuff that is different to your own primary offer (they clearly aren't interested in that - at least not yet anyway).

        So you can continually email these people and generate commissions from other offers that might interest them. You basically have a new list you can work slightly differently than your regular one, until they either opt out, further qualify themselves or stick around on the co-reg list because they like what you're sending them.

        Best...

    I'm not sure if you'd make a ton of money with buying leads... doesn't matter from who. These people don't know you, and probably don't want to know you either. Stick with direct marketing strategies, and build an opt-in list from scratch.

    Heaps of you guys are really missing the mark here…

    (I did way back in the day when I started buying co-reg leads too, so don’t worry).

    The biggest misunderstanding is that people assume because this service is called "Get Subscribers", once those leads are sent to you they're now your subscribers and you can automatically start selling them.

    They aren’t really true subscribers at that point (not like those that might optin from your own website) – they’re simply people who have expressed an interest in learning more about you, based on what you’ve used as a very limited presell hook (which is essentially the size and limitations of an adwords ad to prequalify a click through).

    When dealing with any co-reg leads (leads that are generated on third party properties other than your own) think about this…

    First think about the process & flow of an Adwords visitor –

    • Assume it costs you $0.38 per click. Visitors get pre-qualified (have expressed an interest) by viewing and then clicking on your ad and are taken to your website.
    • Your website, content, landing page etc then does the job of further qualifying those visitors to either optin to your list, buy your product, or whatever goal you want them to take.
    • At that point, if they optin to your mailing list, they become very hot leads because obviously you’re hitting the right buttons and they have ALREADY learned who you are and what you’re about.
    • Of course, any of those visitors can equally just move on and leave your site immediately after they’ve arrived without doing anything, because they’ve discovered, even though your ad peaked their interest, what you’re presenting doesn’t interest them at all. And a lot of people do. You don’t convert every single adwords click into anything.

    Think about the process & flow of a co-registration lead –

    • A person pre-qualifies themselves and expresses interest by seeing your optin advertisement hook and checking a box next to your optin form offer ad. Just like an adwords ad really.
    • At this point you ALREADY have the lead but you've missed a step - i.e. that lead didn’t do this ON YOUR WEBSITE – it was on another website. That means these people still don’t know WHO YOU ARE yet. It also means you need to do the job of further qualifying them (that would usually happen if they were on your website first) inside the very first email you send them (and subsequent emails). Again this process would usually happen on your website in the case of a click on an adwords ad. From there, if they take further action, they become hot leads. If they don’t they can sit on your mailing list (segmented) and who knows what might peak their curiosity in the future.
    • Of course, just like adwords clicks, some of those people that opt in as leads aren’t going to be interested anymore (or at all) because you’ve missed the mark in your co-reg advertisement hook and first initial email communication. People will immediately un-subscribe, sit on your lists and do nothing etc. Just the same thing that happens when not every adwords click you generate turns into a receptive lead.

    …so it’s all about how you deal with the co-reg leads you get.

    You can’t just add them to your standard newsletter list, start sending them the exact same emails and expect them all to be as responsive as a mailing list you’ve built exclusively from your own site.

    Especially if your “co-reg” hook is extremely general and you then start presenting very specific information.

    But let’s put all this in perspective…

    $0.38 for a single click from Adwords campaign OR $0.38 for a lead – comparatively it’s still a very cost effective marketing technique to get your message in front of someone (and in both cases you’ve pre-qualified both in the exact same way via a tiny advertisement). At this point they’re no different

    However in the first case, you further qualify visitors on your website. In the second case, you do it via email (ideally) immediately after they’ve opted in.

    The nice thing about the co-reg lead however is that at least they’ve already shown they’re totally receptive to getting more information via email.

    What you need to do with them is add them to a different mailing list, and treat them a little differently to build that relationship with them, before you start treating them the same way as your normal list.

    The other nice thing about co-reg leads too (unlike an adwords visitor that might just click away never to return) is that you’ve got their email so you can follow up literally an unlimited amount of times (until they un-subscribe) to work to build that relationship and further qualify them.

    Most people don’t grasp this concept when they initially buy co-reg leads so they just write them off as being totally worthless.

    Best…

    I've always heard that the leads generated this way were of poor quality and mostly freebie seekers. I'd focus on getting high quality leads in other ways if I were you.

    You can look for someone who has big list at Getresponse or Aweber then contact him/ her for advertising your product to his/ her list.

    But... most subscribers don't like their privacy to be sold to buyers.
