Network Marketing Leads - 3 Reasons Not To Buy Network Marketing Leads
By James Dailey
It's easy to spend thousands of dollars per month on network marketing leads and come up with nothing in return. I've seen people spend months calling leads, spending $500-$1000 per month, only to get 1 or 2 distributors who end up NOT duplicating what you do. At the end of it all, you end up spending yourself in the hole with nothing to show for it but maxed out credit cards! Sounds like fun, doesn't it?
Here are 3 reasons why you should NOT buy network marketing leads:
===>Not targeted enough
In marketing in general, it is customary to make sure that who you advertise to is laser targeted. For example, a company who advertises reverse mortgages will not direct their marketing to everybody and their momma! You're not going to see a commercial on TV targeting young homeowners for reverse mortgages. Instead, you're going to see that commercial directed towards senior citizens, who most likely will need a reverse mortgage as another source of income. Network marketing is infamous for not targeting their market. Not targeting your market is like throwing mud on the wall and seeing if it sticks.
===>95% of these leads are not serious just curious
What a time waster this is, dealing with "looky-loos" who have no kind of genuine interest in what network marketing is. You end up hitting your head against the wall, because these people are cold and they don't trust you. They most likely have been burned before and have their guard up, because they think you're trying to sell them something. Most of the time these people answer the ads thinking they're really about to get a job or something. The learning curve on this can take months, because you're so busy trying to learn how to handle objections and such, so you can sift through the crowd of time wasters.
===>There's no value in network marketing leads
Lets face it, unless your paying $20 or more per lead, or generating them on your own, these leads will be non-exclusive to you. This means that the lead company will end up selling a set of leads to 2-10 people other than you. When you get to them, I'm sure that they would've either made the decision to stay with a normal job, or just move on from here and keep searching, thus starting the process all over again.
