What I’m going to say about generating business opportunity leads is going to upset some people but…it has to be said!
You have paid out hard earned 5 Ways to Prevent High Inflation in Your Business cash to get into a good business opportunity…and you have applied yourself by giving up countless hours of time learning about marketing, designing your website(s), proper sequential mailsets, hosting your account(s), setting up blogs, etc. etc. The list goes on and on! Or, maybe you are with an affiliate program and you really can not change the web site you are given. Much of the work is done for you by the parent company. There is still a huge learning curve involved with just knowing the product(s) and payplan. There is a huge learning curve in just knowing how to talk to your lead prospects!
While I know that there might be good lead generating companies out there that “can” get specific leads for your niche, it is “really” “really” hard to believe someone is going to give me 50,000 or 100,000 “high quality specific for my niche” leads for around fifty bucks! I have even gotten emails from particular businesses stating that they have a surplus of leads and I can acquire one “million” of them for around seven dollars!
Think about this, if someone is going to give you 50,000 leads for fifty to a hundred dollars, how many times would they have to do this for others just to make one thousand dollars for that week? Instead of you doing the math, I’ll tell you – at fifty dollars a crack, they are generating one million leads for one thousand dollars and selling to 20 people. They are not making much money – are they? Greatly enhance the numbers and it is still not believable. Realistically, businesses selling leads would have to sell “millions” of leads EACH WEEK to make me believe they are making money. There is the possibility they have other revenue generating streams of income but…
Bottom line is, if they are doing this to make money, numbers do not add up! If they are selling to 40 people a week making around two or four thousand dollars, they are having to generate two million leads a week. Over a years time, this particular business (by itself alone) is generating over a 52 week period of time, ONE HUNDRED and FOUR MILLION leads a year. Let me see, in the United States I think there are around 360 million to 380 million people residing in this country not counting the 50 million illegal aliens and extraterrestrials. I will guess and say 20 million of them have internet access. I will stretch this way out and say there are 400 million people in the United States and that ALL of them have internet access. That would mean that this one business alone is responsible for 25% of all lead generation using the internet within this country.
