Paying for Network Marketing Leads is Like Paying For a Prostitute – Instant Gratification With NO Long Term Relationship

Purchasing Network Marketing Leads is a dead end and waste of money.

And chances are good that instant gratification will be slim to none.  Half the time you are buying a list of names that are outdated, directed to the wrong market, or just filled with wishy washy people not knowing what they want to be when they grow up…  If you’ve bought network marketing leads in the past and called all those people, you know exactly what I am talking about.

network marketing leads

This blog post actually came about as I was studying from various sources, continuing to stay on top of my personal development and education.  Something I think we all need to do if we are going to be successful in Network Marketing, and in anything in life!

John Dewey said: “Education is not a preparation for life; education is life itself.”  I couldn’t agree more.

But enough about education!  Lets talk about Why Paying for Network Marketing Leads is a Bad Idea, and How to Generate Quality Leads for Less Than Fifty Cents a Day!  (That could have been the headline here, but the whole prostitute analogy was a lot more fun 😉

The traditional purpose of generating network marketing leads is to Sell those Leads your goods or services.

I’d like to you to think about an alternate reason for generating network marketing leads, that down the road will produce a much more fruitful reward, both monetarily and even personally.  The most successful Internet Marketers have all learned this valuable lesson and are implementing these practices.

The whole theory behind attraction marketing is to Give Without Want… In doing so, you can Attract interested followers that are hungry for what you have to offer. In order to Attract them, you need to provide them useful information and value.  We’ll talk more about this in a minute.

“The Money is in the List” as you have probably heard a bizallion times.

There are many ways to market and build a list – be it,  Social Networking, Video Marketing, (such as You Tube), Forum Marketing, Free Classified Ads, PPC Advertising, etc.

Here’s another method for generating network marketing leads called Listbuilders, and in my opinion the top 3 companies are, (and in this order).

1. ViralUrl

2. ListJoe

3. ListBandit

I am going to talk specifically about ViralUrl because the people I work with have tested it over and over again so we know it works.

There are 2 ways to join, a free method and a paid version. I recommend the upgraded paid version because it is much less time consuming and work.  If you are on a budget then here is low-down on the free version.  Once you sign up, what happens is you will start to receive emails in your inbox- (you may want to create a separate email account for this project).

Just for reading those emails and clicking links, you earn credits, which can be exchanged for your email ads.  This can be a very time consuming way to go and could end up frustrating you.  BUT, if you are starting off and low on cash, this method will produce quality leads, it will just take you longer.

If you have a little extra cash then the upgraded package is highly recommended..

Right after you join they will hit you up for a One – Time Offer to upgrade for a fee of $197.00. Included in this you will get the Gold Membership, which is good for 12 months. With this package, you can send out an email (your own email ads)  to 3000 members, every 3 days.  These emails are going out to targeted existing network marketers.

These are the people that are already buying something online, believe in MLM, and are looking for something that works.  They NEED A SOLUTION TO THEIR PROBLEMS…   The best part about being a Gold Member is that you can earn Affiliate commissions for anyone that you get to join, and take the upgrade package. Some people are making upwards of $200 to $400 a month or more, just by using ViralUrl and spreading the word.  So it’s possible to get your initial investment back and then some, just for joining as a Gold Member.

Okay so remember way back when I mentioned Attraction Marketing..

Lets connect the dots and take a moment and talk about what you are going to sell using your solo ads and your List builders account to attract more Network Marketing Leads.

Most of you are going to try and sell you primary business through your email campaign, makes sense right?  WRONG! Don’t forget, you are now (finally) marketing to the right crowd.  These people are already here with the same beliefs, goals and dreams as you have.  They believe in MLM/Network Marketing and probably are struggling in their primary business to get more network marketing leads.

Doesn’t it make sense to market to these people a SOLUTION to their problems? Rather than try and SELL them your primary business, which they could really care less about anyway!   Why not offer them great information and VALUE for free, and teach them what their Upline won’t.  Remember, it’s all about creating long term relationships with people. Wouldn’t you rather be in it for the long term instead of grasping for that instant gratification?

In my opinion you should be reaching out with this marketing strategy in order to build relationships, gain trust, and show them how they can create an income stream from potential clients, even if they don’t buy into your primary business.

In order for you to be successful doing this, you need a system that will do just that.

I highly recommend taking a look at My Lead System Pro.  They have a complete system in place with capture pages already created, websites, training and so much more.  I’ve generated more network marketing leads in a 2 week period because of MLSP, than I did in the 2 months prior to joining, and I’m just getting started!

The education I referred to in the beginning of this article is what gave me the idea for it. Which is what stems from the training I received in my MLSP back office.

I want to thank Norbert Orlewicz and Brian Fanale of MLSP for such great training and for sharing so many secrets with their members, all for less than a dollar a day. I will never again pay for my network marketing leads thanks to MLSP.

    Hi Justine,
    Thank you! You bring up such a strong point, “people buy from people”
    The more value we can offer people, the more we can gain their trust. Isn’t this such a great industry? We have the opportunity to reach out and help so many seeking to improve their lives and business. I’m so grateful to be a part of it.

    Thanks again for your comment!

    Hi Richard,
    Great post here! The resources you recommend here are indeed extremely valuable. Not only does MLSP offer a very powerful marketing system, but I agree with you that the training & education component is phenomenal. Attraction marketing is also pivotal – people buy from people, and in this industry they buy from people who have leadership and who can help them make a positive change in their lives and become leaders themselves!
    Thanks for an empowering post!

    What a great article man! The Truth shall set us all FREE! Buying lists is definately a waste of time and money. It is true that the money is in the list, but buying a list is not how to do it. You must add value to people.

    Great article.
