This is a follow-up in my series of articles about generating free or inexpensive network marketing leads. The majority of network marketers that I work with are working within the framework of a pretty tight budget. That’s OK because there are ways to generate yourself a lot of network marketing leads on the cheap if you utilize certain marketing strategies.
Today I am going to talk about using List Builders. Specifically 2 of the best list building programs that I have found on the internet – Viral URL and Viral Hosts. I am a Gold member in both and cannot recommend them highly enough for the budget conscious marketer. I am not including my sign-up links because this is not meant to be an advertisement. You can join both for Free but will need to upgrade to receive the real bang for your buck. I am just letting you know about these programs because they are unique…they operate like a cross between a safelist and ad exchange/solo ad.
With Viral Hosts, if you join for Free you will be able to have 1 domain hosted and be able to email your downline every 7 days but will not be able to email the member base, which is what we are talking about here. The Gold membership allows you to email 3,000 random members every 3 days and the Diamond or Elite level will let you email 6,000 random members every 3 days.
With Viral URL, you can email members for as a free member but will need to accumulate credits like I spoke about yesterday in my safelist marketing article. Since both programs are owned by the same guys, Colin Klinkert and Frank Bauer, the same upgraded membership levels exist with Viral URL as do with Viral Hosts.
The way I look at it, I am paying well under $1 per lead with both programs which is a good thing! Both Viral Hosts and Viral URL have extrememly responsive marketers as their members. I’m not sure why these lists are so responsive but they are. I will typically get between 5-10 sign-ups from every mailing I do, and I’ve heard of people generating many more leads than that.
Both programs operate like a safelist in that are emailing random members of their membership base. They differ from safelists in that you are emailing to the member’s contact email rather than a list email for a safelist. If you are able to write catchy subject lines, your emails have a much better chance of being opened because you know that they will at least be seen!
Using List Builders is one of my favorite strategies to generate free and inexpensive network marketing leads. As with anything, you need to be consistent when using this strategy and change up your subject headings to see what works. While I generally have a very good response, I have also been shut out. Do not get discouraged when this happens (hard to do I know!). If there are any other list builders which operate similarly, I would love to know about them. Please leave me a comment if you have any recommendations.
