If you are an experienced with MLM Marketing, you may be wondering what
has happened to sales leads and why it seems harder to find good propsect lists?

If you are one of the marketers who is searching for quality leads that
are affordable, you’re not alone. The question is how should you go
about finding quality leads without having to use up your advertising
funds?

There are a few factors in play:

The answer my friend is not floating in the wind; finding the answer just
requires using a little common-sense.

Keep your pipeline of lead sources fresh

In the past, there were numerous sources of quality sales leads and leads
for multi-level marketers (MLM Marketers) in particular but things have
changed a bit.

What I recommend, when asked, is that you allocate a portion of your
monthly advertising budgetfor testing new lead sources – even if you
already have a lead source that you like.

The reason for this is that  you will eventually discover that lead sources
come and go. Even quality lead sources disappear from time to time. This
is especially true now that Google has been making major changes to their
search algorithms.

Understanding Seach Engine Results: Lack of  Quality and Alternatives

Also, if you have looked for lead sources lately,  you may have noticed that the
better listings are not coming up at the top of the pile – at least on Google it seems.

To verify that the search changes are not for the best, you can search for
just about anything and you’ll notice that the top ‘natural’ search results
seem to list lower quality sites.  The situation with search results has forced
many companies to use pay-per-click advertising but the dirty little secret is
pay-per click ads don’t pull like they used to.

Given the sorry state of search results, you may be wondering what seach
customers are doing to attract results and what are lead generators doing
in particular. But before we attack this issue, let’s take a quick look at referrals.

Referrals

It’s simple really. Lead sources are doing what most companies are doing.
They are marketing to their pre-existing customers and finding out that
this the way to continue to be profitable.

I would suggest that there is something to learn with this if you market
MLM Opportunities. In other words, don’t forget to market by referrals -
by working with past and current customers. In other words, use the
power of referals to help you find prospects that might otherwise be overlooked.

Looking Deeper for good leads:

Also, don’t give up on lead sources just yet. You may have to look a little
deeper in Google’s search results to find quality lead sources for your MLM
Business but it can be done.

Alternative Searches

Also, we are recommending that marketers try out the Bing Search Engine.
Why? Because you will likely find that the top search results – the top 20
results are more relevant than Googles for finding small businesses which
offer mlm leads. I can give you example after example to prove this assertion.

This is an important point because most quality lead sources of MLM Marketing Lists
and sales leads are not the big companies. The better sources of sales leads for niche
markets like MLM and Home-based business operators are smaller businesses as
they cater to niche markets unlike big companies – like InfoUSA, for example.

This leads to a discussion of what a MLM Lead actually is. You will find that the
types of leads, how they are generated, and how they are defined differ radically
from one source to another and particularly with larger list companies.

Compiled List Companies vs. Respondent Lead Companies

Large lead companies don’t take the time to make sure that their leads are actually
working for their customers. They seem to be more interested in how many leads
are deliverable as opposed to how many leads generated a response.

Also,  you’ll find that most large lead companies tend to classify leads as opportunity seeker
leads in a way that differs from how you and I might. As an example, just because someone
purchased software for home, that doesn’t mean that this person is looking for a business
or income opportunity. In other words, as most marketers know, that type
of purchase does not an opportunity seeker make.

In other words, larger lead companies are in the business of selling compiled lists -
not respondent leads and they have the PPC budgets to outbid companies who offer
and sell legitimate repondent leads that are in demand by MLM Marketers.

Suggestions:

If you want to find better respondent lead sources, be sure to take a look at companies
that don’t have an interest in being at the top of Google Adwords Listings, and consider using
Bing and other search engines that have not tried to rig search results in a manner that favors
big companies at the expense of driving smaller companies away.

Also, given the way lead sources come and go, we have found that we can best keep up by
providing our customers with insight on on the best types of leads that are available – by phone.
You are welcome to visit http://Leadlists.com to learn about standard lead offerings but I’d recommend
that you send an email to use or just call 770-942-9999 to learn more about leads that we are currently recommending.

Thanks.

Many people have asked about getting free MLM Leads.

That’s because in the past, we were one of the first, if not the
first source of MLM Leads to offer free leads.

The idea behind the free leads program was to provide leads without
charge so that marketers who were legitimately intersted in buying
leads would have the opportunity to try out leads before making
a purchase.

However, we have discontinued our free leads program for a couple of reasons.

If you’re wondering why, it’s because we felt we could better serve those who
are likely to be MLM Customers and legitimate marketers by keeping our
prices as low as possible for our leads.

We also noticed that there are websites that are dedicated to providing lists
of vendors who offer free leads. In our view, those websites who offer such tips
are only serving to undermine vendors and their ability to make a legitimate profit.
The leads business does not have big margins and it is difficult to make a profit as it is.

Most vendors who offer free leads are not in a position to offer their best leads for free.
Anecdotal evidence that comes from conversations with marketers who spent time working
with ‘free leads’ only to discover that they wasted their time and money.

The old adage that there is no free lunch applies today as it did in the past and
perhaps more so. Today, it is more expensive to generate high quality mlm leads.

We would rather focus on generating and finding the best leads for serious marketers
than to postpone the day that marketers, who have no advertising budget, will go out of
business.

Rather than pin one’s hopes on making it big with free leads, our advice would be to buy
leads in test quantities so will have legitimate sales leads to work with from the beginning.
That way, you’ll be much more likely to save time and money and avoid dissapointment.

MLM Mailing lists are essentially postal mailing lists.

Used by those in network marketing to market by postal mail, the 
prospect lists that are offered by most lead sources are usually
going to be opportunity seeker leads.

Our experience over the years suggests that most marketers
will do OK with some types of opportunity seeker leads but
we feel that using Buyers Leads will give you the edge you
need to compete.

When you order a postal mailing list from http://LeadLists.com
you’ll receive a list of buyers who have indicated they can afford
to participate in a MLM Program because they have made a
purchase in the recent past.

If you are a fan of nature or perhaps enjoy gardening or landscaping, you have to appreciate the role that perennial plants play in creating a space that you can enjoy year-round.

MLM postal maling lists are very much like well-designed gardens or landscapes and can provide needed consistency in your business yard or garden.

The Simple Case for Using Postal Leads

The reason for using postal leads are that they generate consistent and steady results. Although postal mailings are not flashy, they are an important part of any marketers arsensal because they simple generate results time and time again.

Quick Success Tips: Marketing using Postal Lists

  • Use postal lists to create steady flow of prospects
  • Consider using postal mailings as a means of introduction
  • Follow-up with Telephone Marketing
  • Use post cards to lower your costs
  • Make sure your postcard stimulates curiosity and has a call to action
  • Remember to allocate a portion of your advertising to purchasing postal lists and for postage
  • Start small with a mailing of maybe 50 postcards per week
  • Monitor your results as a means of tracking effectiveness of your postcard
  • Report undeliveable or returned mail to your lead source and ask for credit of returns exceed 10%

Lowering Costs: Using Postcards instead of Letters

Let’s address some of  the more basic points mentioned above.

One marketer who owns a publishing business recently sent out a newsletter (by email) in which he mentioned that the price of sending a postcard is considerably less than sending a letter. We’re talking about 32 cents for postcard which is really not bad at all given that at least your prospect will see the postcard and have the opportunity to respond. This is a very different scenario when compared to sending email messages for example.

Combining Postal Mail and Telemarketing

Secondly, you’ll want to consider using a telephone follow-up. What does this refer to? We’re talking about eliminating cold-calling because when you follow-up with a prospect that you have already sent something to – by mail, psychologically and as a matter of fact, you are simply following up with that prospect which means you have a reason for calling a person that clicks with them and that can make all the difference.

And remember, you’ll want to consider using postal mail in conjunction with telephone marketing to really help you generate faster results.

Volume, tracking and following up with prospects

If you are new to using postal lists, you may want to start out using a smaller mailing – perhaps plan to send 50 or postcards  per week.

Remember to track your results. This will be particularly easy if you create a simple spreadsheet using Excel so you can jot down who responded or if mailed pieces were returned. I would suggest that you keep a monthly tally of returns so you can request replacement leads if your return pieces exceed 10% .

Using your spreadsheet or even a log in a text processing type program, schedule telephone follow-ups about 4-5 days after you send out your mail. You may have to adjust your calling schedule based on how long it takes mail to be delievered from your destination.

Realistic Expectations

Consider that it may take from a few weeks to a few months to be able to see results. Why is that? Well, when prospects receive something by mail, it may sit around the house for a while before they decide to take action and call or follow-up.

 Since postal leads can provide a consistent boost to your bottome line, it will be helpful to consider allocating a portion of your advertising budget for postal leads.

Many marketers are wondering what is the best mlm lead to use in order to get real results and make a list pay for itself.

The answer depends somewhat on how you or your marketers like to contact people and if you are good at telemarketing and if you have experience with email (current experience).

First, the no-brainer type of lead is a postal lead. This type of lead can still be very effective for a number of reasons. It’s low-tech and there is a very small learning curve. The downside is small – the cost of a stamp – as opposed to the time involved with utilizing other types of leads.

Next choice, and this is not in an order of preference, are mlm telephone leads. If you are good on the phone, or can have someone who is good at talking on the phone work  your leads, you might find you can experience good sign-ups faster that with a postal list. Based on demand, I would say telephone leads are a hot choice and preferred by many successful marketers.

Marketers who have used our Call-in Center Leads use a one-two punch in their marketing in that they send out a mailer and then follow-up with a phone call. Makes sense because when you market like this, you really aren’t doing cold calling are you? This combination approach is something that most advice givers have not considered. Even so, it’s something you may want to consider.

The last type of lead I recommend these days is an email lead. The reason is that most marketers are not set-up to handle marketing by email. It’s still possible to market effectively by email – but, you really have to know what you are doing. I may publish something on the site at LeadLists.com to provide more details but for now, suffice it say that you need to know what you are doing if you are going to send email in quantity or even if you just plan to send a few email at a time. If would like to learn more about how to get your email through (actually delivered), you might want to check out advice for email marketers (postmasters)  that Yahoo provides.

No matter what, if you decide to send email, just make absolutely sure you are using opt-in leads and that you’re sending a messgae that has content that’s related to the initial inquiry of the prospect. There is much more to know too both about how to send email and how to be in compliance with various laws and rules and regulations. You may find things are quite a bit different than the way things used to be – so, be sure you take time to research  what’s involved before you begin sending email.
