by Flying Scotsman 18 replies
Hi, new to here. Good day to all. I am a licensed agent of _____________ Travel Club Memberships, and I don't really know how to get things moving insofar as making some sales. My sponsor advised me to BUY some double opt in leads and get on the phone. Can anyone comment regarding, a) their success with bought leads, b) a legitimate reliable and trustworthy place to buy leads, c) the most cost effective way of obtaining leads
Thanks,
Morgan Barrie

    PPC would be a great way to get leads. Set up a capture page, so you can get their emails, and phone number if necessary, and follow up with them.

    Get on the phone with double opt-in leads? Lol good luck with that one. I guess if you want to really pursue this path, you will want to get advice from the people in the "offline marketing" section of this forum. The guys there know what they are talking about.

    You can get leads from all corners of the internet. PPC, solo ads, blog advertising, social marketing, free marketing, etc. The possibilities are endless.

    Do not buy leads. Ever. There is no such thing as reliable purchased leads. Ever. It is a scam to get your money, and you WILL be branded a spammer sooner or later. Period. I cannot stress this enough. Do not buy leads. Just don't.

      Joel,

      Buying leads may not have worked out for you, but I can tell you, if done correctly, purchased leads can bring qualified, targeted traffic.

      Think about it . . .

      PPC advertising is buying leads.

      Purchasing solo ads is buying leads.

      Paying to have your ad appear on someone else's site is buying leads.

      I have purchased email drops from mailing lists and it was quite successful.

      If it were not for purchased leads many, many businesses couldn't survive.

        PPC, Solo ads, and that type of "buying" leads does work, yes. The kind of buying I referred to is where someone is selling a list of emails - perhaps on disk or emailed in an Excel file, et al. I spent thousands of dollars on that sort of thing back in the day, and not only were the majority of the addresses no good, I also landed on all the major anti-spam lists. And of the few addresses that were good, I don't recall getting any business from them.

      Lol that's a pretty broad accusation. Sure, you can't expect to buy thousands of leads for $5, but there are companies out there that provide legitimate leads

      This is false. I was selling hot local leads to offline businesses for quite awhile. They were converting at over 70%.

    create a facebook fan page and a facebook group or join a specific facebook group, then advertise for free!. But advertise to a max of 5 groups a day and at least every 6 hours...to avoid being banned and also, the smaller the group, the better...not much competition.

    With the kind ofeads that your talking about it sounds like the Offline section is better suited for you (as stated above). I agree with the advice that one should never buy email leads, but since you looking for leads you can call, you might have better success. There are places online that you can go to to buy "data" or "consumer lists" that have marketable prospects. It's up to you to find them, and persuade them, all while not tarnishing your rep and label yourself as a spammer or telemarketer.

    Lead generation is the main and the most powerful requirement for getting a good sell. I think you should try PPC and Classified Ads for getting lots of leads. This will not only improve sells in fact it will also provide you lots of genuine traffic.

    I agree about not buying leads! I am new here at the Warrior Forum but I do have a Lead Generation Program that seems very promising and you never have to buy leads again.
    You can watch this brief video and get back to me if you have any questions. I have a great mentor and he will mentor you as well: 297 Club. I am committed to helping small businesses improve their cash flow/bottom line. All my best, Vivian

    1. Find some websites, facebook groups, youtube channels in your niche.

    2. Are they actively building lists?

    3. If so you can approach them and ask them if they would be
    willing to a deal with you.

    4. YOU pay them a fee for a set amount of clicks.

    5. Just like Solo Ads in the I.M./MMO niche but less demand and
    even less hammered lists.

    Also you should ask your mentor whether they can help you with
    this.

    If you've bought a license then they should be than happy to help you
    find more targeted leads for this offer.

    Unless their is a multi-level program where they only help those who
    have bought the most expensive license.

    If you know what I mean.

    "Feed the STALLIONS, Starve the PONIES" it what this is best known as!

    Hi Morgan,

    I would suggest getting in contact with a affiliate network, and speak to them about becoming an advertiser. Networks are the king of leads and I am sure they can advise you and tailor a custom solution towards exactly what you're after.

    Good luck.
