Wow, I didn’t realize you knew Dennis too? I have been working closely with Dennis on a project with the leads he is generating…I’m the “tester” for a new company system he has built. Dennis has been a real great guy knowing, and I look forward to knowing him for the long haul. Small world Ray, very small. I mean even you were the one who helped my sponsor in your last company recruit me, we did a 3 way with you, and that’s when I learned about you. Small world after all!
Leads should come in the form of people that are likely to work with you. When you get leads for free, they may not be targeted. That’s okay though, you can target these people yourself, and it’s free to do if you’re willing to put some time into learning marketing. Don’t just get a logo slapped together and act like you’re an awesome company with all kinds of things you don’t really have in place. However, you can work with leads that you target by learning to make a splash in places like review websites and other places people read more about companies.
