I did some basic seo and after 2 weeks the site is now on page 1 of google for a couple of keywords.
I selected this particular niche because there is many businesses competing in the Adwords section. Some of the clicks go for $5.00. So I thought it shouldn't be too difficult finding a buyer for any leads I generated because most of their landing pages suck and I would estimate it is costing them big bucks in advertising to collect just one lead. (I run adwords myself and know how expensive it can be).
So I contacted a few businesses (11 in total), first by email and then with a follow-up phone call. I offered to provide them with 10 Free leads and if they were happy with them I would charge them just $30 per lead.
Two of them said "sure send me the 10 leads", so I did. I followed-up 3 days later by phone and again on fourth day, and again on 5 day, each time their gate keeper said they were too busy. I then sent them an email and yes, you guessed it, no replies.
I have since phoned another 5 businesses and the two I got to talk with said they already had enough business. Then why are they advertising?
So here I am, generating all these great qualified leads of people desparately wanting this service, and I can find no one who wants them?
Has anyone got any ideas that I could try?
