We can search for the SRDS at the library and they will know what we are referring to?

It's difficult to determine to see if that company has high quality leads or not. The company, obviously, won't tell if they have bad leads.

I still prefer manual lead generating. In here, you can see who gives better offer to you and those who do not.

Finding high-quality leads is a bit hard.Instead of just buying dead ones why not try building your own over time?Reaching the point of having to purchase them probably means it is urgent but doubt if they are of much help.Some places to get them include salesgenie and leadpoint,if you insist on buying.

There can be a lot of bad data lists companies out there, you really should look for testimonals, or referrals. We offer data lists for many different types of businesses. Again you have to know exactly your target market and the data you are looking for. Anyone can pull a data list, but it is the data you want and how you use it to market that will make the difference on your ROI. (return on investment).

Default Why?

Why buy leads when you can get them for free? Buying leads are a waste of your hard earned money, when you can get them for free buy using a method called a landing page or some people call it a squeeze page. Buying leads in only gonna do one thing for you and that is get you listed as spam.

We have a customer in the RC Car industry he use to buy leads and get ZERO results. We designed a landing page for him and gathered 3269 email addresses for him. Then we sent a direct email marketing campaign for him to those emails. On his first email he had 1236 opened emails and 146 sales of his product he was advertising. Ask anyone... That's a huge number for a first email and the reason why is because, all those people were interested in his product NOT a purchased lead.
