Last week I got about 300 local leads from a biz-op leads broker friend of mine. He deals only is biz-op leads. (Gasp, yes I know most people find those icky.) These were basically nickel leads from his data base, and they had not been pre-qualified in the past few years. He didn’t know how old they were. We got name, phone # and email and decided to test them.
Thought you might be interested in the results we’ve gotten so far.
The gal calling the leads is a knowledgeable and experienced network marketer with whom I’ve worked for 15 years. I cooked up an opening script for her, which she personalized and added to. There is NO hype snuck into these conversations, no promises of big money free time, etc.
“I was feeling pretty discouraged today. All the disconnects, voice mails and dead end wrong numbers. I kept relaxed with it even so…
- Dialed 62 numbers in all if I’m counting correctly
- Disconnects – 12 and 1 wrong #
- Left message – 40 (2 phone #’s just rang and rang – no VM)
- Connected with – 7 (3 answered + 2 Call-Backs and 2 took messages)
- Live wires with similar values and networks of people – 3 matches (2 are hot)
Bottom line: so far, out of 62 calls, there are 2 extra good matches.
Lady one. A leader in a local group – “the [fusion_builder_container hundred_percent=”yes” overflow=”visible”][fusion_builder_row][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ background_position=”left top” background_color=”” border_size=”” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” spacing=”yes” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” padding=”” margin_top=”0px” margin_bottom=”0px” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_direction=”left” hide_on_mobile=”no” center_content=”no” min_height=”none”][CITY X’s] Women’s Hall of Fame.” She has already invited my friend to come and speak to this group of leading women in that city (!). Most of them share the alternative health and non-drug and non-toxic values we are offering…We’re setting up the event now.
Lady two. My friend wrote tonight, “She sounds FAB. Does Massage and MLM with some company that has a Chinese alternative product…has her kids in Waldorf and a super friendly voice. We hit it off. I sent her the Video and she wrote down our event in Feb. She already sent me a warm email tonight.” (from my friend to me-kk).
That’s two “right ones” out of 62. So was all that depressing work worth it?
Consider: These two women have networks, and spend their money on things that matter to them. The Waldorf school is not cheap. Neither of these women whined about not having money. They live their values. They were super excited about a non-drug, toxin-free product line. And the Dr. gal, with the Women’s Hall of Fame group, well, they’re all business women. Who wouldn’t want to get in front of them?
Note: These gals did not get “sent” to the company website, nor did they listen to an opp call and nor would we dream of three-waying them in with anyone who just talks about the money they might make. These things are not the first priority of these women. They want to make a difference and have an impact first.
We have another 250 leads to call from this group.
Would you call the rest of them if you knew you might only find 3-4 good people like those we connected with above? By good I mean: very strong values that are similar to ours, where the product we’re offering represents those values. Plus both women spend money on things that matter to them.
This is only our first date, but we have high expectations because we’re all so well matched on values that matter and we’re all local.
My friend will be making the rest of those calls, and I’ll keep ya posted.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
