Option 1: buying a list - yeah / nay?
Option 2: What do you do to get a substantial list of leads for industry specific groups and businesses.
Can you contact the chamber of commerce, sba, or go to trade associations?
What do you do?
A good way to find quality leads is to visit Fast Pitch (www.fastpitchnetworking.com). It`s a website that lets you post your business profile and matches you to other businesses you are looking to connect to. I liken it to eHarmony for Business....
This is what I do:
1. Set up a capture page with direct response style copy.
2. Article marketing, e-zine advertising, PPC, blogging, forum posting, public relations, putting up book reviews on Amazon.com, to get traffic to my website.
3. Interested people sign up for more information, and I get only interested warm leads for what the products I sell, while my autoresponder handles my messages.
Hope that helps!
