How to Generate Free MLM Leads

Free MLM Leads

Try Searching Google, Bing, Yahoo or any heavy hitter search engine using the term “free MLM leads” and you are guaranteed to find an MLM lead generation company offering five thousand or even ten thousand MLM free leads.

Cheap. Easy peazy. You pays your money and you takes your names.

Getting these leads is easy. Fill out the company’s order form and badda bang badda boom, you are either emailed a list or given a location to download that for which you paid.

Still, take the time before you buy to think about what you are getting. Likely excited about your new leads (I know I was), are you sure they are qualified leads? Again, as likely as your excitement is, none of these leads are your target audience. You might even find your own name on the list. I know I did on more than one occasion when I went this route.

Learn from my experience.

Free MLM Leads? You prefer Quantity To Quality? Why?

Generating the name of an individual who is not only actively looking to start their own business but who also has the time and resources available to start immediately takes time and effort…and even more important, persistence. Besides, why would anybody offer to give away the names of folks they know are willing and able to buy into YOUR opportunity, service or product?

They are not going to do so. Any MLM free leads you could pick up will cost your contact info and money. Probabilities are you will now find yourself on a list that’s either given away or sold to beaucoup marketers interested in selling you something. Ironically, by buying the list you just became the most valuable name ON the list. Companies that give leads away for free put a little effort into qualifying those leads, in my opinion.

Leads that are generated by an effective long form by sincerely interested parties are time intensive to generate; it is improbable that they are going to give this information away for free. Telephone verified leads are more valuable. Again, it is highly improbable that they are going to give this information away for free. Most of these leads are generated by low resistance forms with a low value give away that nine times out of ten were probably driven as much by idle curiousity and a lottery mentality more so than a serious drive to own one’s own business.

Unless you generate good leads, and by good I mean someone who has thought about the idea of owning his or her own business and who has the money and temperament to stick with it, you are essentially spitting into the wind wasting time, energy and money.

Painstakingly generated leads consisting of someone who has thought about the idea of owning his or her own business and who has the money and temperament to stick with it are going to cost money. I have seen such leads go for over 10$ a lead. If you have the budget, fantastic. Most cannot spend what many spend for lunch on a single lead. Just saying.

The Best Free MLM Leads

This lead generation process does not have to be complicated if you use attraction marketing. The effectiveness of attraction marketing is beyond question. You can either embrace it or spend another whatever period you have spent so far in wasted effort. Attraction marketing will cost you time, but it will not cost you as much as buying good leads.

Most folks don’t fail in this business for lack of ability, hard work, or sincerity. (The failure rate is greater than 98%, by the way. We aim to change that.)

They just don’t know what to do and the ones they turn to, their upline, are often as generally ignorant of maketing as the person they recruited. The one thing they got right was that this business is built by building relationships.

Generate Free MLM Leads Through Attraction Marketing

As a for instance of attraction marketing’s call to providing value, write a short educational article addressing the wishes or concerns of your target market.

Place a call to action within the body of your article; publish and promote. Let the folks that are actively searching for your product or service or network marketing opportunity find you and initiate a relationship. I know this is hard because you think you have to sell. Quit selling and start helping folks solve their problems and you will begin to make money. A valid attitude is to see the money you make as a guage of how much value you are providing to your target market.

Social media like Facebook and Twitter offer fantastic paths to engage prospects; you simply have to offer something of worth to them.

Become an active member on topical forums, blogs, and inside social media; build your reputation by solving peoples’ problems.

Once folk learn how to trust you, once they understand that you know what you are doing, then gaining highly qualified prospects will be simple.

So here’s a simple way to generate your own free MLM leads and make new friends, without getting bombarded by thousands of irrelevant e-mails.

Best regards,

MLSP Has Entirely Too Many Training Videos – MLM Training

MLSP Has Entirely Too Many Training Videos

Loving our time at the beach. Slow beach days are some of the best!
Loving our time at the beach. Slow beach days are some of the best!

Imagine someone is saying the above words in a ‘Vassah’ accent. Then imagine it in the totally wounded and put upon voice of a 16 year old teenage child of either gender who has recently come into that adolescent moment of glory when they realize they know just everything there is to know and will brook no instruction from the ignorant aged.

For good measure you could also play it in the words of the disaffected minimum wage factory worker. This fellow, armed with his absolute adolescent omniscience, dropped out of school at 16. Now, he always vote to stick it to the rich because it is not fair that he should earn only $7.25 an hour breaking his back, standing all day on hard concrete, and generally working himself into an early grave while those ‘college joes’ get paid all kinds of big bucks for sitting at a desk and talking on the phone.

Anyone can sit at a desk and talk on the phone! (True story: I once had a relative who worked in a cotton mill say a doctor should earn no more money than he, that the doctor was no better than he, no one made him choose to go to all those years of school.)

21 MLM Training Videos (and counting…)

I mean, really. Does MLSP absolutely have to give me 21 videos of training to show me all my options, how to configure them, and some ways to use them that have resulted in a many a rep being burdened with 5 figure monthly incomes?

Could they not instead compress it down to a twenty minute montage with the appropriate inspirational background theme music…maybe ‘Eye of the Tiger’ punctuated with a tearful mother who is able to stay home with her babies, relaxing by the pool looking on with an appropriately beatific smile while the checks just roll in? If they would do that I could finish up my task list for the day and catch the latest episode of ‘The Big Bang Theory.’

I mean, it is enough to almost make you think MLSP is actually trying to give you your money’s worth!

MLM Training Will Provide Surprising Insights Into Yourself

Network marketing training will surprise you. Once you quit thinking about doing it, then you quit talking about doing it and actually DO IT, that is. A few weeks ago, I had an epiphany. I struggled over whether to write about it or not because it frankly makes me look bad. Then again, says I to myself, maybe my wrestling with stinking thinking can help you.

I was getting impatient to get everything set up, see…because ‘I wanted all my pages out there now!‘ I was in a hurry. Everything needed to be up and perfect and it needed to be so now! Right now!

Nownownownownownownow.

I Have To and I Have To RIGHT NOW!

I had to blog. I had to get those posts syndicated. I had to set up a new auto responder. I had to get my Facebook pages setup. I need to install the popup software that Rob recommended. I had to research the costs of per click for my Facebook page. No, I did not,; I am sticking with the free leads I get. Yes, I am; I am in a hurry. No, I did not,; I am sticking with the free leads I get…

I needed to hit the boards because there is simply no substitute for interacting with and actually helping marketers with their immediate questions. 99% of these question have absolutely nothing to do with my position as an active distributor building his own teams in several businesses as well as providing generic, objective training to some very fine folks who will never be on my own personal teams. However, that help, that aid, that education, that high value…  is exactly the core product I went into business to provide.

Back and forth as I make decisions that were formerly made and proved productive, I had a very comforting realization.

MLSP More Than Gives You Your Money’s Worth

The Guru Lie: MLM Training Is Easy and Takes Just Minutes a Day

All these ‘gurus’ who lie to you and tell you they only work 15 to 30 minutes a day to build a 5 and 6 figure income lie.

I know, I know. For a single payment of $39.95 this good fellow was going to reveal to you just all the secrets of online marketing…of real estate investing,,,,or maybe tax certificate investing.

MLSP Training: Complete, Proven, Superior MLM Training

Not even a complete list...
Not even a complete list…

The information, the training, the step by step videos, the support system to help you ease past the points where maybe your attention wondered or something is misspelled and you just cannot see, to catch it…

The special deals with companies like LinkLuv and GVO designed to give the beginner a leg up…

MLSP has proven it is serious about providing value to it’s members and the track record of those members proves the training works.

Come join us and let’s get your business on the fast track to profitability and longevity.

MLM Leaders

Being in business for yourself gives you more opportunities to enjoy life.
Being in business for yourself gives you more opportunities to enjoy life.

 

MLM Leaders was originally published on October 7, 2013. Since Earthtiger Networking had a meltdown with the backups, with which at the time Godaddy was not very helpful, I am going back and republishing some of those articles. I hope I am making good choices for the ones I repost. Like any of my writing, reexamination leads to at least some editing.

Always looking for perfection…

MLM Leaders – What Do They Know Exactly?

Is there something that MLM leaders are not telling others? Is there a hidden order of MLM leaders that keep certain facts in private?

Guess what? They do not have any secret systems; there is no hidden order. There is, however, one thing that MLM leaders do share and that is their mind-set and an entrepreneurial spirit.

MLM Leaders – Why Are They so Successful?

MLM Leaders Treat Their Businesses With At Least As Much Respect As They Would Their Jobs – If The Had One

Number one, and this is most important, they treat their businesses like a job -this is the way in which they earn their living. I suspect the number one reason folks fail and that in general only less than 1% succeed is the lack of discipline folks bring from their personal lives to their businesses. Rather than bring the respect one has for one’s job and getting things done by deadlines imposed either by yourself or your supervisor, you treat working your business plan as you would doing your laundry. You get to it when you can; a certain recipe for success.

MLSP has ‘The 10 Daily Steps To Fire Your Boss.’ Empower Network has ‘The Eight Core Commitments.’ If your business does not have a plan for what to do, everyday, you need to get one now.

MLM Leaders Never Say Die

They take their enterprises very seriously. It is not a part-time job; they don’t look on it as a hobby or past-time. They understand that by investing their money and time into their business, although they might have only invested about a hundred bucks to start, it’s what they want to do and how they ultimately intend to earn their living. They have the entrepreneurial mind-set. That’s a major part of it. They try hard, and they never say die.

MLM Leaders Move Like They Have A Plan

These entrepreneurs start their enterprises with a plan. They set out with a clarity of vision and a definiteness of purpose and they work continuously towards that. Their goals are practical, they know that setting impractical goals can only end in disgruntlement and failure.

They’re devoted and work really hard and do whatever is critical to achieve success.

MLM Leaders Know Social Marketing = Time

Profitable social marketing enterprises do take a long time to build, and the top producers had the experience to grasp when the right opportunity was presented to them, and then they put all of their efforts into it.

Persistence pays.

Forget the chances.

Forget the reversals; just learn from them.

MLM leaders work extremely hard. Many of them say they telecommute, but regularly spend many days off from home.

Many of them like to give the impression that they don’t work very hard, when actually they eat, live and breathe their enterprises.

MLM Leaders Sell The Dream

The most successful leaders in the industry understand that sponsoring and inducting is the basic way to make money, subsequently they’ll spend 80 to ninety percent of their time sponsoring and recruiting. That’s the whole MLM business model. The difference today is that you can use SEO(good) and SAO(better) to automate the process so that you are spending your time being creative, working with pre-qualified, interested folks and spending time with your family

You get paid for selling things, and there’s only so much product you can sell yourself, so by having an enormous team of distributors underneath you also selling stuff, you are leveraging those other people’s time to your benefit.

MLM Leaders – Are You In The Group?

Do you have what it takes to become an MLM leader?

“Of course I do,” you say.

Think about it.

Do you have the persistence to invest your time and spend the time required to create a business? Used to be this could take 5 years. Today some folks are doing it in a fraction of that because of marketing methods designed for the online world. Are you dedicated enough to commit your time every day towards promoting and moving your business forward?

When will you consider yourself successful? Is there a money figure you am considering? Do you have a plan of action because without one you’re not going anywhere! What is your promoting plan, and How will you go about coaching at team of absolute strangers to also be successful? What occurs if your company’s amazing product turns out to be a big fat failure after a couple of years. What will you do then?

It would seem that if there’s a secret to becoming a top MLM leader, it’s knowing how to be an entrepreneur. These folks will overcome all barriers to achieve success. Their main focus is always on marketing and improving their firms. On a daily basis they are going to be preparing or promoting their chance to others and planning perhaps a year ahead.

The best MLM leaders are concerned with the success of their groups; they know that their down line’s success can benefit everybody involved.

Have you got that powerful desire to succeed?

Best Regards,

How To Succeed In…

How To Succeed

In what? Whatever you like. I look at Rob Fore, David Wood, David Sharp and I say to myself,  “What sets them apart?” I think in all three instances, it was not having other choices. In some cases it was a life or death choice. In others, it was a hitting rock bottom or simply viewing the idea of living a life at others’ beck and call as the same as hell itself.

I can appreciate that opinion.

How To Succeed. Commonalities

We know David Wood lived in a van while he built his dream. Others would have taken whatever job they could find in order to have ‘a roof over his head.’ Rob…I say Rob because while I have never met the man in person I have conversed with him via email enough that I consider him a friend…he was confronted with what appeared to be a limited time on this old world in which to prepare for his family. He worked to build something before he had to go. Can you imagine? Some folks get depressed because they cannot afford to shop at Macy’s and have to ‘settle’ for Wal-mart. This fellow went out every day with a positive determination to succeed not knowing how much time he might have left.

I call that willpower. I call that a call to action on my part. Hellfire, I call that reason enough to quit whining and just go build a business and take my place where I know in my heart I ought to be.

How To Succeed: Willpower

Sometimes I think the will is the entire reason for this plane of existence. Will you choose to exercise your will for good or evil? Will you live your life in such a way that for a good period of your existence you willingly…there is that will thing again…surrender your birthright to exercise your will to someone else in exchange for a bowl of lentil soup?

Or will you just get up each day and do the things the successful have done and KEEP doing them until you, too, are successful? Believe it or not, I have come to know that failure is a choice, one that you have to make everyday.

Every day you get up you choose to either work towards success or slide towards failure.

“Successful people do all the things that unsuccessful people don’t want to do. ” -John Paul Mitchell, Founder Paul Mitchell and Patron Tequila

How To Succeed: Choose To Do so

I am in the hunt. More than that, I am in the hunt to help others do the same. We are not just about making money here at Earthtiger Networking; we are in the business of building an underground railroad of freedom from corporatism.

What does that mean to you?

At first glance it may not mean anything. Then again, it could mean you spend more time with your kids or in the woods where you are happiest. Perhaps it is on the sea in your own boat listening to the lap of the water against the hull or to the eerie silence when the wind is calm and the sea looks for all the world like a plate of smooth glass stretching from horizon to horizon.

If you are trying to build a business in affiliate marketing or networking, Earthtiger Networking represents proven systems. We give away more training than most provide in their whole training line up.

LEAD GENERATION PROCESS

You Have To Have Leads To Succeed

Without leads no business online or off can be successful, so understanding how to create highly-targeted leads is going to be the powerhouse behind your profitable business.

Sometimes A Lead Is Only Dead Weight

You may think a lead is a lead, but you are wrong. Buying a cold lead and generating a highly targeted lead may ultimately cost the same, but the latter is obviously better.

As an example, if leads haven’t been qualified in the selling process then you will kill yourself frittering away time on unqualified and disinterested prospects.

Your response rates drop, and business declines. It is a vicious spiral.

Generating Leads Can TAKE TIME

You Need to Get the Lead Out of Leads

Understand, the lead generation process can be labor intensive, both online and offline. The offline lead generation process involves driving to meet folks head to head, and lots of telephone calls. If you work a full time job, this process is obviously very limited for you.

If the leads are taken from fliers and forms filled in at trade shows, these leads have to be put into a database and then made contact with individually. Info might need to be despatched, which involves cost, and one way or another those leads need to be qualified and then stepped up to a sales department.

The sales office then has to go through more processes, thru to closing, which hopefully leads to a sale.

Online  Lead Generation: Simpler?

Online lead generation looks to be far more simple on the face of it, but if you’re the owner of your own MLM or network marketing company, you know that simply ain’t so. Rather than fishing in a sea looking for the right fish, you are fishing in a vast ocean of folks, none of whom have heard all about you, or your small business!

There are not many businesses that don’t need an initial investment to get it going, and obviously the more capital you can invest the quicker your business can take off and which will mean outsourcing the pointless jobs or things you’re not capable of doing yourself. Advertising at some particular point will always pull in more leads, if it’s done right .

If you’re asking why your website is not rewarding you with 1 or 2 sales by this time, as you have followed the entire menu of things you should do like writing quality articles, getting back-links, using autoresponders to pump your product through email campaigns and all that other necessary stuff, what are you doing wrong?

If success has not yet been acheived by the aforementioned stages, many entrepreneurs consider giving up and returning to the offline marketing world. Maybe they feel that they were good at such marketing, but on returning to this world, find that roles are scarce.

It is for that reason many individuals consider buying leads from marketing companies; this activity has a big disadvantage.

“I’ll scrape up some cash,” you say. “I should buy some leads,” you say, because it does make sense. When the web was young, it did. Now, the Web is worn and for you proclaim the Web is Won in your case, you need a system.

You’d be better off buying groceries than buying unqualified leads. Which corporations can you trust will be the 1st query, as the better the leads are the more pricey they’ll be, and only 1 conversion will be one costly loss-producing lead. You have just spent the last of your money and now you can’t buy any product to promote!

What you want is a reliable lead generation system that works, one that’s straightforward to learn and one that keeps you in control of the entire process.

Your lead starts with you and ends with you when you close a deal. You need a system that teaches you the very latest techniques of grabbing those focused and qualified leads, and will keep you current on the most recent, inventive strategies for getting you through the lead generation process easily, leaving you with more time to build and enhance your business.

You Need A System To Create A Lead Generation Process

You can go by the wayside, try to do it your way, be that fellow who listens to no one or you can get paid. There are folks out there who know how to generate leads, have generated leads, and who want to teach you how to generate leads for your business, too.

You need to get with someone who knows the score on generating leads and has the record to prove it.

Best Regards and rooting for your success,

Do As I Say, Not As I Do

…so says Bill Gates, that uber mastermind who used our free enterprise system to build his fortune.

Just Wants To Give Back Says Bill

…right. It might behoove folks who get all teary eyed whenever the Gates foundation gives away billions to look at what tax advantages and other ‘in kind’ benefits they get from their admittedly large largesse.

Is it just me or does it seem hypocritical for Microsoft to campaign for the admission of skilled workers from other countries at the same time they are laying off 18,000 workers?

Am I wrong to smell a rat?

 

We Don’t Live In The Marvel Universe

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but always happy to know the truth of things. There is no Iron Man or Captain America coming to save you from the men who think themselves gods over others. You have to do it yourself.

Whatever affiliate business you are trying to build, we can help. Whatever networking business you are trying to build, we can help.
