These are all thoughts that you might have going through your mind right now if someone’s proposed the opportunity of buying leads for your business.

My experience with using business leads
Now, I have to be honest with you, I’ve never purchased leads for my business.
So you might be thinking, “Well, Tanya, if you’ve never done it, how the heck can you talk about it?”
Well, I’ve never purchased leads, because I learned how to generate my own leads before buying leads was even brought into my world, or even a concept that ran by my desk.
But I know a lot of people that are in my world that have purchased leads and I’ve seen the good, the bad, and the ugly.
Mostly bad, mostly ugly.
The good side of buying business leads
If you’re not that good at sales conversation, buying leads has its place where it gives you a lot of the opportunities to just get good at your communication and sales skills.
But if you’re looking to make money and convert those people into sales, I haven’t really ever seen much success.
The only way to have a lot of success with it is to go through a lot of leads and you do have to spend a lot of money on buying them.
With business leads you get what you pay for
Because any good lead list that is of high quality, at least if they’re advertised as good quality, then they’re going to be really expensive.
Obviously you get what you pay for, so I just don’t do it.
And here’s the specific problem that I currently see.
No matter how leads or lists are marketed or sold to you or advertised, they’re typically recycled leads.
What do recycled leads mean?
It means that they’re sold multiple times.
So if you are going to buy a lead list, you’ll want to find how many times that lead list is being sold.
Because if one contact on the list is being distributed and sold multiple times, by the time you get around to calling them, they’re not going to want to hear from you and it’s going to make for an uncomfortable experience.
Business Leads have no idea who you are
Because you’re some random stranger giving them a call and trying to sell them something it’s going to be tough to get people to listen or open up to you.
They don’t know who you are. They’re like, “Who’s this? What are you trying to sell me?”
But if you learn to generate your own leads, you can build a relationship with them before you call them.
That way they already know who you are and it makes it much more comfortable and pleasant for the both you,
And these people are excited to hear from you.
Buying business leads when they aren’t even qualified?
Another problem that I find with buying leads from somebody else is they’re not qualified.
On top of generating your own leads, you want to qualify them so that you’re not wasting your time with the wrong people on your phone.
Your time and money are very important. The last you want to do is spend time and money on the wrong people.
So when you can learn how to pre-qualify somebody before you spend time with them on the phone or Facebook messenger or by email, it is so magical.
When done properly and the way I teach, by the time you actually have that phone call, they’re pretty much ready to go.
You just need to have a quick reconnection phone call and then ask them, “Hey, is there anything else you need to know before we get you started?”
Buying business leads is not a good long term strategy for your business
So by now, you can probably understand where I fall right when it comes to buying lead lists.
I don’t recommend it as a great strategy for business building.
It might be a great strategy to help sharpen your skills and get better at sales and closing.
So for a little while you could use it to get good practice.
But as far as a good business-building strategy, you really want to get good at marketing yourself and your products and your business and generating your own leads.
Pre-qualifying them, warming them up to you, so that when you make the connection on Facebook or email or Instagram or wherever, or even the telephone, they know who you are.
Business Leads – In Closing
So that’s why I’m doing the web class that you can register for. I’ll show you the process of not only generating your own leads, which is powerful but also pre-qualifying them so that you can definitely stop wasting time in your business.
Because your time and money are precious!
