Here’s some more strategies for you:
4. Getting Leads on Craigslist
This could be my favorite way to get leads online. This will literally work for any business you’re marketing. Craigslist has millions of viewers per day, and they’re highly targeted. Most people go to CL to find a job, or another way to make money. Plus, it’s a free classified site so it won’t cost you any money to take advantage of it. It’s so powerful, I’ve generated up to 15 leads a day with free ads. It’s also great for beginners, because it’s just so damn easy. You don’t need a blog or anything like that, all you need is your website which hopefully has a capture page.
The reason you want to have a capture page is simple. You want to collect the information of people who are interested in what you have to offer. Most the time, they ask for their name, email, and phone number. Then it usually brings them to your presentation. That frees up time for you so you don’t have to call everyone and present the opportunity a hundred times a day. That can get old, and you don’t want to waste time with people who aren’t even all that interested or serious about making money. That’s why you let the presentation do the talking. Following up with people and building rapport is important, but at the same time, you don’t need to present to everybody. You just want to call your leads, find out if they’re serious, and if they are someone you want to work with- then send them back to the presentation. If they already watched it, you obviously want to close them into your business at that point.
One thing I want to recommend is posting image ads on CL. Many people that I talk to who get started marketing on CL have a problem with Ghosting. Basically, CL will say that the ad is live, but really it’s not showing up in the classifieds. CL has some kind of weird system where it will notice if you are posting the same ads over and over and will basically ghost it so no one see’s it. They don’t like MLM or online marketing for some reason, so if they find out you’re trying to use their site for that, they will ghost you. So some tips I have for you are this:
- Change up your title in every post
- Change up what you are writing in the ad in every post.
- Don’t post more than 2 times per day.
- Renew your ads every 48 hours so they show up at the top.
- Post everyday!
- Use clickable image ads so that CL doesn’t see what you are posting, and you can use the same ad over and over. Plus making it clickable makes it easier for people to get to your site. One click and they’re there, instead of having to copy and paste your link in the URL.
- Leave your phone number so people can contact you if they have questions. This depends on how much you like talking on the phone. If you want to stay off the phone, leave it out. If you want, you can put your number and make an automated message that tells them you are redirecting all applicants to your website.
- Don’t post in cities unless they are within a state of where you are located.
- Change your IP address and post on multiple accounts per day. That way you get more ads up, and CL can’t tell it’s coming from the same location. This is pretty easy to do if you have Cable internet, a little bit more difficult with other kinds of internet. Just search on Youtube “how to change your IP address” and you will find out how to do it. This multiplies the power of posting on Craigslist.
There you go guys. That’s my favorite way to generate leads online, because with the software I have it takes me like 5 minutes a day. I recently put together a video outlining exactly how I post image ads on craigslist and never have to worry about getting ghosted. Check it out here. You can also see my video on how to change your IP address so you can really get some traffic to your capture page: Yes, show me the video.
