Generate Your Own Leads For Your Multi-Level Marketing Business

Dec 3, 2007
Continual lead generation is vital to the success of any multi-level marketing business. Finding people who will listen to MLM home business ideas and opportunities is easy; finding those who are serious about starting a legitimate business is difficult at best. An important part of successfully managing your multi-level marketing business is finding the best way to generate leads. While purchasing leads from a vendor may be a popular form of lead generation that takes little effort, there are many unique advantages to generating your own leads.

QUALITY
Leads purchased from a vendor have been collected using a variety of methods. A percentage of those leads may have filled out a form thinking that they were entering a contest or requesting information about an educational resource. They may not be interested in home business ideas and opportunities yet you still pay for their contact information.

SPECIFICITY
Leads purchased from a vendor are not industry specific. There are no guarantees that every person on your purchased list is interested in your version of a multi-level marketing business. They may have already tried an MLM business and may be looking for a different type of marketing opportunity.

TIME SAVINGS
Generating your own leads with a website gives you control over what material is presented to prospective recruits and saves you time by eliminating the need to sort out uninterested persons.

RESPONSIVE
Multi-level marketing leads generated by individual business owners are more responsive and eager than leads purchased from a vendor. You will most likely be the first and only person to approach them about your multi-level marketing home-based business opportunity, increasing your chances of a sale. These leads are fresh, hot and exclusive.

CONTROL
When you use custom forms to generate leads, you can determine the level of interest of a recruit by placing specific questions on the form. This saves you time by helping to weed out those who are not ready to get serious about a multi-level marketing business. Including a comments space in the opt-in form for people to provide you with invaluable personal information is an added bonus of creating your own leads.

COST
Generating your own leads is more of an investment of time and knowledge than of capital. The only costs are your advertising fees and tools, such as your lead capture pages and an autoresponder. Some of these tools can be found for free on the Internet if you are willing to invest the time to search for them. Generating your own leads is more cost effective but also more labor intensive than purchasing them from a leads vendor.

RESPONSE TIME
Leads generated from a website come in as the interested person enters the information. This allows you to contact the person while they are still excited about the concept of becoming self employed. This is especially powerful for people who are in higher ticket business opportunities and need the highest quality leads. Nothing beats having company specific, real-time leads in your inbox waiting to be contacted about your product or opportunity.

Because lead generation is so critical to the continued success of your business, finding the most cost effective, and time sensitive method of collecting the highest quality leads should be a top priority for any multi-level marketing home-based business.
