    Hi Michael! Welcome! [​IMG]

    There are many methods to generate leads online. I myself like to use:

    article marketing
    blogging
    online classifieds
    forum participation
    social networking

    The key is to stay consistent with your marketing efforts and do a little bit each day. Over time you will begin to see a daily flow of leads.

    There are also paid advertising methods, but I don't really use them. Occasionally, I will purchase some leads from a reputable lead source to supplement my online marketing. Hope this helps!

    When I was generating my own leads for an mlm business I was in, I loved the successin10steps program - it generated a lot of leads for me.

    Hello Michael and welcome to a whole new world if you have just entered the field of Internet marketing. Absolutely the first thing you have to do...first...is to create a list of names who opt in to receive your information. A capture page with sign up form circulated through traffic exchanges and other advertising methods is a must. You'll have to have 1. a capture page, 2. an auto-responder set up to respond to those who sign up, 3. ad tracker to see which advertising is doing best for you. The capture page shouldn't be for 'selling' your product...it is for getting names that you can then attempt to sell. Try giving away something. If I can help you in some way,it would be a pleasure. Please understand that success in Internet marketing comes with 'time'..lots of it during which you consistently and persistently keep promoting.

    When your trying to build your MLM business online you need to have a system in place where the leads pay for themselves(funded proposal system).

    This will take care of the problem of running out of money and new leads to build a relationship with and market to on a consistent basis.

    If you don't know what a funded proposal system is do a google search and you'll find a couple of articles that explain how the system works.

    Going into forums such as this is a great way to learn online businesses. Keep reading posts and you will find more and more helpful tips from experts and those that are more experienced than you. You can also read articles. Buying ebooks is not really the answer, because most ebooks nowadays are rewritten.

    For free online lead generation which is what it sounds like you are pursuing, you can find a lot of great content in many free forums regarding forum marketing, articles, classified ads, video marketing, social networks, and more.

    There is some stuff out there worth paying for with great tips and strategies, but I'd be cautious in paying too much (whatever that is). If you pay for online marketing education, be sure you can get support to help clarify anything you don't understand while learning.

    One key tip is to remember to start APPLYING what you learn while learning. You can go into a library of learning and never come out. This is what slows many people down.

    Online marketing is only going to be best learned through application. It's a hands on trial and error process, that once you've got it, you've got it, like riding a bike.

    You need to have a marketing plan and a system to train your downline.

    Using your marketing plan, you must be consistent and do the marketing every day. At the same time you need to track your efforts to see what is working and what is not.

    You don't know what is working until you place ads and actually see results:
    - Number of unique visitors daily
    - Number of return visitors daily
    - Number of optins
    - Number of sales
    - Conversion rate

    Once you have these number, you need to keep testing your ad copy (or website text) to try and beat your own numbers. The idea is to make your ad and website work harder for you.

    If you have a replicated website, you won't be able to ad visitor tracking to it unless it's already done for you by the company. Without this tracking ability, you could just be wasting your time!

    I know a place where you can spend 25$ a month and get a university education in marketing. You will never have questions about lead generation again!

    Hey Michael, welcome to the forum. Take your time and do due diligence. Lots of good advice in here. Plan out and be patient. Lead generation is'nt difficult, it's getting good, quality serious leads that follow thru to connect with you that's sometimes a challenge. I know it can be frustrating but just be patient and you will find what you're looking for.

    This is because you then become the lead for the system. So the person who is selling you information on lead generation is in a sense creating leads on their behalf from the people who buy into the information.

    Leading with helpful information is one way to attract people to you and generate leads...and is the way a lot of network marketers do it online.

    garlickmike: ...myleadsystempro, anyone heard of it or know if its any good?
    I use this particular system. The emphasis here is not just lead generation, but a specific kind of lead generation where you target buyers and you give them value based information....some free and some paid; a funded proposal is another way to look at it.

    It seems like you would do best learning about the various ways to generate leads online and learn a bit about Internet marketing before you go into a system.

    Good post. The key is patience really. If you want to generate free leads then it requires a certain amount of work over a certain amount of time. Persistence brings success is something I say.

    Spend 20-30 minutes a day on trying to generate leads.

    I pay for leads aswell, but I still try and generate my own.
