        Of course he was kidding! Good leads are very valuable, therefore there is a huge market for them.

        Just pick the right niche... Your grocery store will not want to pay for any leads... where an attorney will pay you hundreds for quality leads.

        I was speaking with a bath re-fitter once; he spent about 15k a month on advertising that brought in roughly 150-200 leads per month... to him a lead was worth $75-$100!

          Yeah, you just have to make sure that you pick the right niche. I had an brick and mortar that I sold however, I still get calls from people that were referred specifically to me (I used my cell # in the business, a bad idea btw) and I just refer them out to other people since the new business owners have shifted focus and no longer offering the main service that I was offering.

          I posed that question for the benefit of others here. Of course, it is a viable business.

          However, it ticks me off when people post irrelevant and/or sarcastic answers.

          If you don't want to say something that helps people, then don't say anything.

          One good turn deserves another. That's how I feel.

          Peace out!

    Well it depends of many factors. But yes there is a lot of money to be made selling leads. Accountants, Lawyers, Insurance Agents, ect ect they all need leads. Auto Dealers may pay 4250 per high quality leads and by that I mean they dud bought the car or did try but was refused for credit score ect ect. But if you don't have a way to get High Quality leads then it will not work as they will not come back.

    I can tell you YES! Selling leads is a viable business. It is like anything else though, it takes a bit of work to set up. It, for me, turned out to be a part of my "offliners" business. I first went to some of the professionals in my niches, then contracted them for leads, then I had my foot in the door. As soon as leads, viable leads, started coming in to the clients, it was easy to move them into my online SEO and Social marketing services.

    If you are going to stick with lead capture, I suggest you get a handful of local clients you can meet face to face and get under contract. Once you have some locals under contract for lead capture, you then have a client base for references when selling your system to clients by phone outside your geographical area.
