D&B Hoovers offers the most advanced search features of any of the options we reviewed, allowing users to search by industry code, geographic location radius, and even variables like IPO status and underwriter. While the search interface is not as modern as other options, it provides the most filters to conduct detailed searches, and many of the other services depend on D&B to verify their contact information.
Twitter offers a more automated means of lead capture. With a target web site, either your own or the ‘offer’ money site, you are in a position to write short articles or blogs and then post Tweets carrying links to these articles. Keep those down to about 10% of the total, linking the other 90% to interesting on-topic snippets elsewhere on the web. Then use a good scheduler to queue a week or two’s Tweets and then let it run on auto pilot.
UpLead verifies leads at the time of purchase to make sure that every contact and email address you purchase is accurate. Users can search by individual contact or by company, and can then export results to a spreadsheet or send them directly to their CRM. This is supported by UpLead’s database of over 30 million contacts, built using both public and proprietary information sources.
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!
Working with your various leads should get you somewhere, or else you need to rethink your plans. If you find that engagement is still low after you try yourself to get leads that turn into paying ones, you should just buckle down and study on what you’re doing more. Anyone that wants to be successful has to alter what they are doing so that they can get more from the people they are working with. You really need to get this underway or else it’s going to end in you wasting time with leads that won’t pay off.
