About a year and a half ago I purchased over 900 real time home business leads from and online lead vendor. At $1.80 cents per lead this cost me over $1600 dollars. I was so motivated to build my business that I didn’t care what It cost me I just wanted in.
After almost 2 weeks of pounding the phones, and following up with leads I walked away with… Only 2 new business partners, a ton of rejection, a lot of time invested and almost a zero return on my investment. (By the way those business partners didn’t join my business until a month later)
Calling MLM Leads Blows?
What did I learn? Calling leads blows! Although I became very good at connecting with prospects over the phone, I absolutely hated the drudgery of it. At the time the amount of money and time I spent on the phone was not worth the improved prospecting skills. But Im very thankful I lost that money because it prompted me to find a better more efficient way to build my business.
This experience solidified the approach that I use to build my business today. Over the next few months I picked up a few internet marketing skills to build my home business online. Yes there was a learning curve but it was well worth it because at the end of the day I had learned to do what others could not.
I can’t remember the last time I purchased a lead but I still generate 20 to 30 mlm leads online each and every day. Now I choose to attract and build relationships with only the most responsive and qualified prospects.
I no longer have to speak with people I don’t want to speak with and I still manage to sponsor people into my primary business. The super cool thing is that unlike most network marketers I don’t cold call, bug friends and family, or hang around in coffee shops.
Buying MLM Leads – The Moral of the Story
I’ve failed at a lot of things on and offline but I would never reverse any of it. Without those failures I would not have had the thought process to continue learning until I got the results I wanted. I encourage you to continue learning.
If something isn’t working for you and you know deep down in your heart that you want to succeed… Keep searching and learning and don’t be afraid to make mistakes. We learn more from our mistakes than we do from our successes. Whether its your network marketing business or you just want to be a better parent, if its not working for you please don’t just settle for what you already know and think to yourself “this is just the way it is”.
You Are Better Than That!
Learning will always cost you something. Your time, money, or effort… and sometimes it’s going to cost you all three like it did me but remember you can’t avoid this and its just a fact of life. You can never get something for nothing. So today right here right now ask yourself…
“What can I change that isn’t working for me right now?”
“What will it take for me to get to the next level in my business and life?”
Once you level with yourself and find the answers to those very serious questions…
GO FOR IT! Remember you don’t have anything to lose because your losing more of your precious time, money, and confidence by not going for it.
