My friend Tony Rush has a great persepective on what goes in to being successful with leads. With success likely measured by whether you enroll someone... or not....in your primary business.
First & foremost understand that "you" are key variable in that success. Per Tony (thanks buddy) list of factors could include:
-- your method of contact -- your copywriting abilities -- your phone skills -- your company -- your product -- your pay plan -- investment -- your confidence -- their confidence in you -- your ability to create relationships -- your follow-up -- and a million other things.
Bluntly....understand that quality leads are just one component. The rest....quite literally....is in your hands. DONíT FORGET THIS FACT!!
I've tried leads from most of current leads programs....for my money (literally) I've stuck with one company (I won't tell you who here because that would smack of self serving advertising.) Just seemed to have best combination of leads, system, and training for me personally. The others were too expensive, performed poorly, or both. You're and others experience/opinion may differ of course. And therein lies first personal decision you must make, which company do I choose?
Each leads company has pros & cons that will be specific to your own preferences. Kinda hard to extrapolate to "you". Has to be your own decision based on your criteria....obviously.
I do suggest....if you haven't already....to listen in on any info calls each company offers that you can (if they have them). That should be a benchmark of any decision to join a leads company....and an ingrained habit of every Networker interested in utilizing a leads program.
A little tip for those looking into a leads program....invite a few folks you trust from your organization to listen with you (upline, sideline, downline leaders). Each of you will "hear" something others don't. You can compare notes afterward and make best decision for you as a group. Afterall you will have best success as a group rather than an individual. So decide as a group. Buy in is easier then too. Which means sustained joint effort leading to organizational growth and momentum you're all looking for together. That's best way to implement a leads program.....and exactly how good ones are designed to work. Join together....work together.
