If you have a network marketing business as your home based business, you know about getting leads. The quality of lead lists vary drastically and as mentioned in Buying Leads for a Home Based Business, lead quality is often determined by age of leads and sales volume. Maybe you’re turned off by the idea of calling people from “lead lists”? After all, those are just lists of names and you know nothing about the people. Maybe you’re thinking it’s like cold calling.
Try using “survey leads” rather than general lead lists. Survey leads are leads that (as the name implies) are gathered from surveys of some kind. These lead lists include information that ordinary lead lists do not. They will include the survey answers which will instantly tell you something about the person. Often these questions are some variation of “Why do you want a home based business” or “how much do you hope to earn per month in your home based business?” Knowing the answers to questions like these will tell you a lot about the person before you pick up that phone to make that call. They will tell you things like what they’re looking for and how much commitment they’re planning to put forth.
They won’t tell you everything you need to know, but good survey leads can give you a head start on the call. It can make that “cold call” feel more like a “warm call”.
