You will have to try several of these services (whose price and quality vary GREATLY, I repeat GREATLY) to find quality one's.
My suggestion is to inspect leads yourself when you are a new member with one of these services. You can often tell using common sense whether email addresses appear to be of quality or not. A lot of repeat emails, or repeat email sequences where they have same name and just change a number on end indicate they accept multiple posting from single individuals. While this can create an impressive lead count number to advertise to potential customers, obviously sending 50 messages to one person is not as effective as if you sent 50 to 50 (duh).
Reject vendors who do not generate results... it's too easy to give these guys chances since their services are all relatively inexpensive, but a little adds up in both your time and your money. You can be out $500 on your credit card pretty quickly when shopping for services online. Everybody has an addon, everybody has an upgrade etc.
Stick with a few good sources and try out a few new ones each month (until you reach a budget you are comfortable with). You will miss on a few in beginning. BUDGET FOR THIS. You will feel better mentally and you will be more agressive marketing. You have to get word out in biggest way you can afford while making sure you are using services which provide value for your money. In end service should make you more money than it costs. At $20 dollars a month one referral to any program you are in will pay for service for month so you can see that if you find those quality FFA vendors it's not hard to justify their expenditure.
Remember these FFA leads were once you posting to these pages. They don't know what you know yet. It's easy to get referrals for FFA programs from people posting to these pages. Well it's not easy to get them to open your email when there are quite a few others in there, but if they do and you enlighten them about values of owning an FFA page they will probably sign up under you. Don't brow beat them. Point them to this article if you want, provide them with "education" not a commercial.
FFA Resources I recommend:
Trafficwave.net - one of my favorite programs as multiple mentions in my blog will attest to. 6000 strictly double opted in leads a month. Brian Owner of Trafficwave is really commited to his membership and it shows. Great automated marketing.
Multilinks.net - Great leads and a premium lead option that gives you 2000 leads that only get emailed your ad..... PER DAY.
