Does Buying Business Opportunity Seeker Leads Work?
My favorite traffic source is Search Engine Pay Per Click. Because it's very targeted, and fast.
But it's now possible to buy business opportunity seeker leads - cheap.
But does it work - do these people buy the sort of offers I'm happy to promote?
These leads are people who have submitted their email address in order to receive business opportunity offers into the email inbox. They have also checked to confirm it's OK the receive offers form 'partner' organisations.
Put another way. These people are being hammered with email offers from many companies.
Because of the quality issues associated with these lists.
But I know people that have had success with these sources, so I have tested a few.
My Lead Gen Secrets is a service that lets you build and email your list from their mailer. It also has an MLM affiliate program that many have done well with.
If I remember right it cost $35 one time as a set up, and then $35 per month - In return you would get 100 new leads every day, and the ability to mail your list once per day.
You cannot import these leads into any mainstream Email Service Provider (yes, I did test this).
I did get traffic from this source, but no conversions. Apparently offers from CPA Networks, some Clickbank, JVZoo and Warrior Plus were converting for others.
But I don't promote these offers, so My Lead Gen Secrets is not for me.
Rob Fore's Heavy Hitter Leads is a different proposition.
Firstly you CAN import these leads into mainstream Email Service Providers (accept Aweber - don't know why).
Heavy Hitter Leads do convert!
2 sales and re-bill from Wealthy Affiliate.
Personally I tested the $97 month subscription for delivery of 1000 leads into my GetResponse Email Service Provider. This all happened automatically each day via API.
For the eagle eyed, my leads purchases were made May - Sept 21, and the affiliate payments made Jan - March 22. Almost certainly due to Wealthy Affiliate offering a great free entry level, that converts people over time.
I cancelled my Heavy Hitter Leads subscription on the basis of not seeing any sales!
I think this lead source offers interesting potential for somebody that is a better email marketer than me (that's most people I'd imagine).
I feel I should test this again?
(update 10th July 2022 - started my subscription again. Was far to hasty last time)
Rob Fore is a good guy, and does a fantastic job of explaining everything on his site here >>
Heavy Hitter Leads also offers an affiliate program.
Cliqly / Cliqly Pro
So this is a by invitation only offer that is available to some customers of Anthony Morrison, and also Gold Members of Four Percent Group.
This is a bulk email sending business, that makes it's money selling traffic to other companies.
The idea for Four Percent Members is that Cliqly may be a very simple to operate traffic source for people to send to their Hub / Website'.
Obviously for this to be of any interest it MUST be PROFITABLE - right?
And that is what I'm testing.
The backstory ... Vick Strizheus introduced Cliqly to his Four Percent membership with his son Maxim also testing it out.
For now I won't go into detail about the working but the general idea is that people can build very large email lists ( talking 30 - 200k maybe more) which they own (and can export to their own Email Service Provider - I'm importing into Active Campaign), and can also mail through Cliqly Pro (the in house Email Service Provider).
Cliqly Pro also provides a way for people to sell their clicks for .10c so it's possible to earn money as you build your list.
At the time of writing I am waiting for Vick to create a free training course which is to be used as a free incentive to get people to join Four Percent at the free Basic Membership level so that some may choose to ascend to premium later.
An approach I personally like.
And hope will prove profitable 🙂
I also think this source will prove profitable for people that want to set up a mass emailing business that promotes many business opportunity offers (that's not me btw).
