How MLM Leads Brokers Compare: A Review of 20 Websites
|by: Fran McClough|
|To survive in the changing world of direct selling or network marketing, you know how critical it is that you maintain a consistent flow of leads into your business. Without this flow, some network marketers' businesses fail within their first few months because they simply let their pool of prospects (aka potential customers and recruits) dry up.|
Your common leads sources come from your warm market list, leads from referrals, leads you've generated from your ads, or leads that you bought from a MLM leads broker or list broker.
Out of these four sources, buying MLM leads or business opportunity seeker lists from a broker is by far the simplest and fastest way to keep leads flowing into your prospects pool so you'll never run dry.
How do you know if a list broker offers good leads/lists?
Simply buy a very small sample of leads first as a test. This will allow you to test the quality of the leads and form an opinion about the quality of service that the broker gives you.
If you get the results you want from the sample and are happy with the broker's customer service, then you might consider buying more leads from that particular broker. Keep in mind that each list may be different, which means the quality will vary.
An alternative or supplement to doing the testing yourself is to use a service such as Optimized MLM Leads, http://www.optimizedmlmleads.com, who offers to "optimize" the leads that you already own.
It can be difficult process to separate the good leads brokers from the bad ones. However, you should be able to answer yes to the many of the following questions when considering a leads broker.
1. Does the broker provide leads that are authentic and want to be contacted about MLM or network marketing business opportunities specifically?
2. Does the broker provide leads that are fresh?
3. Does the broker provide e-mail leads that are opt-in and spam compliant?
4. Does the broker claim not to oversell its leads or offer leads packages that it only sells a certain number of times?
Before you buy MLM leads, you may find it helpful to read the reviews and compare the 20 MLM leads websites that are listed below.
