    Hi everyone! This is my first post here, I will definitely be coming here often...
    I have a question today- does anyone know a great source for telephone leads?
    I know email and facebook are a lot more popular, but I am ready for some human contact!

    Off the top of my head ot at the moment, have you tried using an opt-in page that also accepts a telephone number? This way at least you get all the details but qualify people first by stating that telephone numbers are required so you can provide a more personal service and only people that fit a certain criteria should sign up.

    A bit more work but very targeted.

    Thank you! I do have access to an opt in page with phone number field. I have begun to get very burnt out with marketing on FB, and I do not really know who to get real quality leads from, but I am working my way around learning as I go.

    When I was buying leads I really liked these - hopefully they will let me post this link as it's not an affiliate link!

    You can narrow it down to pretty much what you want for more money. I always say that ONE lead that you generate on your own is worth about a hundred bought leads so I quit buying them years ago. BUT it DOES give you someone to talk to! :)

    There is a company online called:

    Leaders Club

    I think they offer phone leads.

    Are you thinking of buying leads? If so, DON'T DO IT. It's a total waste of time and money. Before I give you any more advice, Kelly, may I know what kind of business you are into?

    I absolutely agree. Many times, these leads are fake and will never turn into conversions for you. You're really better off generating your own traffic and leads. That will give you much better quality.

    Agree with generating your own targeted leads with a capture page. Do you have an enticing offer? Giving away a free offer of tools, training, or report will generate far more opt ins than leading with a product or biz op.

    Hope that helps!

    Forget All The Complicated Stuff! Just be human and interact with people everywhere whether online or in person and if necessary get their contact info. Its better to talk on the phone with people you already know and have a relationship with instead of a list of strangers :)

    Hey Donnell,

    You go right to the head of the class.

    "Build a capture page" .... "get likes" .... "give away free stuff" ..... "have an inticing offer"

    All these things are great, if you have the #1 ingredient. TRAFFIC.

    Oterwise you may as well put a billboard up on an empty highway.

    I've been marketing over 20 years. In fact, way BEFORE the internet.

    Nothing has changed. It takes PEOPLE CONTACT to make money. If you can't
    handle people contact .... you'll stay doing whatever it is you're doing now that
    has you looking for something else to do.

    And you'll keep spending money on stuff that won't help.

    Learn how to talk to people on the phone and in person and SUPPLEMENT
    your direct approach marketing with the online tools and you'll get somewhere.

    Buy leads..... and ask yourself WHY does the lead vendor CHARGE WHAT
    THEY DO for those leads?

    Because to make leads in the VOLUME it takes to be able to sell them to
    people takes A LOT OF MONEY. In fact, at $3.50 to $6 per lead that's
    "exclusive" and "targeted" doesn't even cover the cost.

    That's why they RE-SELL those leads as "aged" or "non-exclusive" in
    order to actually make money.

    The point?

    Thinking you can just create a capture page with an inticing offer that
    gives a free gift will give you enough leads to make a living, is simply
    not going to square up with reality.

    But it will make the people selling the tools and ebooks a nice payday.

    Get some skills.... and work on the rest as a side project if you want to
    actually create a paycheck.

    It goes a lot faster and is a lot more fun when you're trained on how
    to keep the mental side of your business correct.

    Have a super weekend!
