Almost everyone joins their Network Marketing company thinking that success will come a lot easier than it actually does. You were likely led to believe that all you have to do is introduce your opportunity to a few friends, who would then recruit a few of their friends, and the cycle would continue until you’re making thousands of dollars every week.
The reality of this business is that almost all of your friends and family will say ‘no’. The ones who do say ‘yes’ either won’t do anything, or if they do take action, they won’t be able to recruit any of their family or friends.
How To Get Network Marketing Leads – Learning The Skills
And it’s at this point that most people quit their businesses, because it’s at this point that you need to actually learn the skills you need to be successful as a Network Marketer. And the first and most important skill you need to learn and master is how to generate Network Marketing leads.
Every Network Marketer needs leads. Without leads, your business is going nowhere. But with enough leads, success is only a matter of time.
The problem is that most people have no idea how to get MLM leads, either offline or online.
Purchased Network Marketing Leads vs Free Network Marketing Leads
For many people, it’s very tempting to just purchase their Network Marketing leads from one of the many lead sellers on the internet.
And at first, it seems like an easy solution.
Instead of having to learn and develop lead generation skills, you can just take a shortcut and buy leads.
Problem solved, right?
The issue I have with purchased leads is that they are among the lowest quality leads you can get.
I won’t go into detail in this post, but you can learn more about purchased leads on my blog post about Where To Find The Best MLM Leads.
When you generate your own free Network Marketing leads, they will be highly targeted, highly qualified, and best of all, they’ll be free.
3 Ways To Get Free Network Marketing Leads Online
That being said, there are many ways to get free Network Marketing leads online. Some require more manual work while others are more automated. The manual methods typically don’t require the use of additional software or tools, but do require a lot of your time.
On the other hand, the automated methods typically require the use of additional software or apps, require more time to set up, but then will run mostly on autopilot forever.
So here are my 3 favorite ways of generating free Network Marketing leads online…
Free Network Marketing Leads Method #1 – Direct Messaging On Social Media
Leah Rae and I got our first several online leads and sign-ups into our business from direct messaging on social media.
With this method, you are basically just finding people on social media who might have an interest in your product or business and start up a conversation with them through direct messaging.
Many people don’t reply, but some do.
The key with this free Network Marketing leads strategy is in your targeting…for example, if you are selling a health and wellness product, you need to connect with people who are active in health and wellness groups on Facebook, posting health and wellness pictures on Instagram, or following health and wellness accounts on Twitter.
The great thing about this free Network Marketing leads strategy is that you can get results quick.
The downside is that it takes a lot of work and the number of leads that you can get is limited. Leah Rae and I used to spend every free moment of our day just to get a handful of good, high-quality, targeted leads every week.
Free Network Marketing Leads Method #2 – Blogging
Blogging is a great way to generate some free Network Marketing leads. The best thing about it is that it is one of the few things you actually own online.
When you do your lead generation on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube or on other social media sites, you don’t actually own your account or content. They can and will shut down your account if they don’t like what you’re doing. Facebook is notorious for doing this. A few years ago, YouTube went on a rampage and shut down a bunch of accounts.
But your blog is owned and controlled by you and you alone. And when you create content on your blog, it can produce leads for you indefinitely.
The other great thing about it is that it is a free Network Marketing leads strategy that doesn’t require you to chase after people. Instead, you are attracting people to you. You can learn more about why you should consider creating an MLM blog and how to create one right here.
Free Network Marketing Leads Method #3 – Social Media Automation
This is a free Network Marketing leads strategy that is currently producing anywhere between 12 and 34 leads per day for us.
This free MLM leads strategy takes some time and effort to set up, but once you do that, there is very little work involved in generating your leads.
In order to generate automatic leads on social media, you need a few tools and apps – the most important of which is a good “capture page” service and a “lead magnet”. You can learn all about this strategy in this blog post on How To Get MLM Leads On Autopilot.
