Before you start trying to generate more leads, make sure you know who you're trying to reach and where you might be able to find them—physically or virtually. First, identify the need or want that your product or service can address. For instance, joining your direct sales business can help a person fulfill a need for more income. Perhaps the wellness products you sell can help people meet their desire to stay healthy.
One of the unique features of Sales Navigator is that it allows users to directly contact prospects using LinkedIn’s InMail feature. This allows users to send messages to prospects they aren’t already connected to on LinkedIn and see when recipients have read their email. You’re allowed you to send 20 InMail messages per month to reach new prospects directly on LinkedIn. The Team plan allows you to send an additional 10 InMail messages per month.
As a last resort, you could try cold calling by phone. This is probably the most depressing and soul destroying activity on the planet. Even if you get past the usual questions such as ‘If you’re selling something – I’m not interested’ and ‘How did you get my number?’ you need a really slick and professional script and the ability to recognize and avoid lonely old ladies who just want to interact with someone, anyone, in fact.
