The kinds of leads that you are likely to get for free are ones that have been gathered in a scatterspray way – they could be poorly targeted, or in some cases even people who have not opted in at all. If you contact leads like this, then you will be putting your brand at risk, because you could end up in trouble with your web hosting provider, or the law, for unsolicited marketing. Alternatively, you could end up contacting  people who might otherwise have converted, but who come to view your brand as a spammer because of the way the initial contact was made.

We choose UpLead as the best overall place for small businesses to buy business leads based on its simple interface, robust search features, and affordable monthly subscription plan. In addition, UpLead offers the option of one-click export to your connected CRM, making it the best choice for businesses wanting a simple way to buy leads and add prospects to their sales process.
UpLead does not include unlimited leads on any of their plans, unlike what is available from Salesfully. Instead, it provides users with a monthly allotment of credits, each of which unlocks one contact. UpLead also does not offer phone or email support, only a knowledge base and the ability to submit support tickets. Also, while the service is good at producing quality email addresses, it often delivers generic business phone numbers instead of direct contact numbers.
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.
