Need leads, What to do?

14 replies
I need about 250 leads for a specific niche.

I have a dilemma.

Do I pay someone elance/odesk to manually create the list for me from web research?

or

Do I use a scraper to scrape yellow pages etc and get the data myself?

I have never tried any of these methods before.

    It depends on what type of leads they are. Are the zip codes or are they phone numbers or are they names and addresses? Are they clicks or are they leads for brick and mortar businesses?

        I'm sorry. I'm unfamiliar with that niche. All I really know is IM.

        But when the responder said Solo Ads that is actually a way to get leads if you have the people go to a capture page with a web form.

        That's how I get a lot of my leads

    Search for the top rank blogs for your niche.
    Offer to buy solo ads from web masters.

  • I would also recommend solo ads since you will be directing them to a lead capture page. That way you can get targeted traffic. I always use solos.

    Give something of value, an ebook, and buy some solo ads ....

    Getting leads on these freelancing websites is a disaster most of the time ...

    There are actually many ways to generate leads. Social media is a good of you have a tight budget. But if you have some resources you can pay someone else to do the list building for you. If possible do not stick to one approach alone. Try to use mix marketing strategies.


    Goodluck.

    If you want to generate leads, then have a look at the report that I offer here in my signature file below. I give you some practical ways to generate traffic to your site so maybe you might find something there that you can use in your business.

    I sould not use any email harvesting software, or buy leads on a CD or DVD ROM because those leads aren't targeted leads and if you use those, then you will be accused as spamming, and that's not good for your business or your reputation online.

    Always use honest and ethical means of developing leads for your business. That's the best way to go my friend.
