How to get new leads much faster?

Hi all,

As we all know, getting new leads for your business is crucial, so most people do it by sharing articles, bookmarking and so on. Some of them try to speed up the process by buying a couple of worthless marketing gigs on Fiverr, but usually have no success with them.

But there is another way, called contact lead lists. While most of the providers just resell over-spammed lists over and over again, some of them are better than the rest. And when you use those providers' lists with mass email services, getting new clients can be a breeze.

Yes, I know, being sceptical is a must, but if the provider offers a guarantee, why not giving it a try? So, I decided to go for it with (expensive) Megaleads and got screwed. Then I tried much cheaper Promobrite (dotcom), bought my niche lead list and used their bulk emailing service, and after a couple of weeks, I got over a thousand buyers. Sure, some leads bounced back, but nevertheless, a good result after all. Not bad, right?

That's why I wanted to share this story here. With all those shady promo gigs out there, I'm just glad that I found a real and effective one who actually delivers the much needed results.

How about your experience with lead providers? Please share.

Take care!

    I would also recommend use of some form of 'reward referrals' program. Give a gift or discount (incentives) for sending referrals.

    Lead Generation Strategies are quite multi-faceted and it is advisable to deploy as many of these strategies as is reasonably possible. With a pay off of potentially $500 to $1500 per month in your case, it is worth it in your case to try out as many channels as possible.

    There are strategies that you can deploy in-house such as the following:-

    • A professional LinkedIn Page
    • A Good Facebook and Twitter Profile
    • A Professional and well optimized corporate blog
    • Professional content marketing
    • Press releases about your product
    • Google Adwords marketing for your product
    • Professional local SEO with targeted content marketing aimed at the store owners
    • Email marketing and automation

    There are certain marketing strategies that you can leverage in order to push your product to the right audiences. Examples of these include:-

    • Attending small business conferences or expos
    • Sponsoring small business expos
    • Giving prospective customers freemiums to try out
    • Advertisements in relevant media channels

    There are also lead generation tools you could use many of which have been mentioned above.

    Finally, you could buy a B2B lead generation service. This probably has the best chance of success because with the right lead generation company, you can tap into highly relevant prospects that offer you the highest possibility of conversions.

    Great B2B lead generation companies will generally utilize your business profile to develop top quality leads that are relevant and verified. With these, your success rates will be slightly higher. A good example I can think of is AskHuron.

    All in all, there is no single magic bullet. Have a strategy that aggregates several of these good ideas together and implement it for your business. That has the potential to throw leads your way from all corners.

    I would add outreach is really important too. Very menial but it works...

    Outreach to bloggers, influencers, and even wholesalers. Though the bigger the company, the harder it is to get "in". That's when relationships are key.

    But if you're just starting out, outreach may be time consuming but will land you results.
