Lead Generation Ideas To Build Your Business – Starting Today!

Top 8 Lead Generation Ideas To Help Build Your Business!

Lead Generation Ideas

Generating leads is the lifeblood of any business. In this article I want to discuss a few simple lead generation ideas that you can start using now to increase traffic for your network marketing business…

But first I would like to cover the concept of Attraction Marketing because in the grand scheme of online lead generation, this is the most effective way to generate leads for next to nothing.

I say next to nothing because your upfront out of pocket expenses can be under $50.00, but keep in mind, this will cost you time, and time is money, but in the long run, attraction marketing will bring you leads for years to come.

If you haven’t already picked up Mike Dillards “Magnetic Sponsoring” I suggest you do so if you are serious about business lead generation. Mike wrote the book on how to attract leads online and it can be considered the Bible of how to set up your attraction marketing funnel, or your “Nerve Center” as he calls it.

The theory behind attraction marketing is to provide value upfront and offer solutions to peoples problems. Position yourself as an expert, ask for nothing in return, build trust with your prospects first, because people only buy from those they know and trust.

This entire blog has been built upon Mike’s theory of attraction marketing and is consistently generating 5 to 10 new leads everyday. It isn’t something that is going to happen for you overnight, but I am finding new people to talk with everyday from the work I did one time, 2 years ago.

Okay, let’s talk about a few lead generation ideas that you can start using right now that will help you build your list and increase your sales, starting today.

1. Attraction Marketing System

2. Solo Ads

3. Blog/Article Marketing

4. Twitter

5. Safe Lists or Traffic Exchanges

6. Facebook Relationship Building & Facebook PPC

7. Free Classified Ads

8. YouTube Video Marketing

In a previous article I have gone into extensive detail about these 8 lead-generation strategies and a few others. You can read about these other Lead Generation Ideas Here!

Right now my #1 source of traffic and leads comes from Twitter. A good friend of mine Joe Shaw and I have put together a Twitter Training Webinar that you can have free access to by clicking the link above.

Probably the single most effective strategy I learned from Mike Dillard and Magnetic Sponsoring is how to implement Systems Marketing, or Affiliate Marketing.

The theory here is to promote a “System” that will help other internet marketers solve their most common problem… LEADS –  Having enough people to share your business opportunity with.

And at the same time, earn an income which will help generate new leads and also fund your own marketing.

It’s a brilliant concept and Mike has put together an in depth course called Traffic Formula 2.0. It’s loaded with over 25 hours of training videos that will teach you everything you need to know about Attraction MarketingCheck out Mike’s Lead Generation Ideas Here.

In closing: In order to be successful in any business, especially network marketing and direct sales, learning how to generate leads is imperative.  Not just any old lead, but Qualified leads that have sought you out. People that are ready to open their wallets to do business with someone they have learned to know and trust!

    Hi Jeff,

    You hit on a golden nugget here. Thanks for adding value to this post. YouTube has been a great way to generate leads for me but I have not spent any time in forums. I hear it said all the time, adding value in forums is a great lead generation tool.

    I appreciate your advice and hope my readers will follow your lead. I know I will.
    Thanks again,

    Hi Richard

    Great post, solo-ads are ONE of my top three methods for lead generation

    My other two are youtube, and forum marketing – which you forgot to mention 🙂

    Forum marketing is quite easy actually, sign up as a member to a high traffic forum in your niche – and become a high valued member. Posting HELPFUL content, and genuinely HELPING people is a great way to get your signature noticed.

    As for the signature, of course – you’re going to add a link to your niche site or blog in your signature. NEVER ask people to check out your sig, don’t even HINT at it. Just being helpful is often enough to get clicks to your sig. I’ve gotten as much as 500 hits a DAY before from forum marketing, and the best thing it – it did not cost me $0.01 🙂

    Hey Abhishek,

    I agree, most business owners don’t have the time to invest in it themselves and don’t want to pay for it. It’s too bad because if it’s done correctly, Social Media is such a huge part in todays advertising.

    Traffic formula was one of the best courses I’ve taken! I appreciate you leaving a comment!

    Thanks again,

  • Abhishek Bhan 02/02/2013,

    Social media is often overlooked in most marketing campaigns. I personally think the depth course on Traffic Formula 2.0 shall be full of out-of-the box ideas to attract traffic.

    Thanks for the info. Richard. I bought Mike Dilliard’s Magnetic Sponsoring a few months ago and just skimmed over it. But a few days ago I took it back out and read it again. It has literally changed my entire mindset when it comes to marketing online. No more putting the horse before the cart! (presenting my opportunity first)
    Most networks already have enough problems so why give them more! (your opportunity) Once again thanks Richard.

    Hello Adrienne,

    Thanks so much for stopping by and for confirming the importance of Mike’s book. It was the best $39.00 I’ve ever spent!

    Thanks, It has been a bit crazy putting together the webinar and my first ebook, it’s all been a blast! I’m looking forward to building on it. After learning a few things about Twitter from you the other day, I’m going to have to make some revisions… lol

    Talk about someone being busy! It would seem you don’t have much time for anything else besides answering all the comments you get on your blog! 🙂

    You are a wealth of information, I do hope my readers take the time to visit your site. They will be learning from the Best!

    Thank you again and I hope to have you back soon.

    Hi Richard,

    I think that anyone who comes online with the intention of creating a business needs to read Mike’s Magnetic Sponsoring. It can definitely open their eyes to what it really takes to build a successful and sustaining business. This is just a “must have” book.

    Sounds like you’ve been very busy and congrats on that Twitter webinar. People really need to learn how to use Twitter properly because once you do you’ll reap the benefits.

    Thanks for sharing this information with us and enjoy your afternoon.
