Yes "leads" such a simple word but such a diverse and complex industry. There are pretty much leads for every industry and niche on the planet. Somewhere, somebody is selling something and generates leads or buys leads to contact and make sales.
Leads have been around forever.
Back in the olden days, before the internet, plenty of direct marketing companies ran ads on the back pages of magazines and comic books to generate leads. You may remember them.
I grew up in Australia and used to buy a lot of comics from the local news agency. I loved the ads, probably more than the comics, although I still read comics.
Some guys never grow up. I loved the ones advertising BB guns which we could not get in Australia, also the ones with X-ray glasses. They always showed some kid looking at the bones in his hand. I had other plans for them.
Never did get a pair because the ads for them were all in the USA.
I used to buy Phantom rings so I could leave a skull mark on bad guys chins. They were made of rubber and you needed a stamp pad to leave the skull mark.
Once I bought some real Occupation Currency. It was printed by the Imperial Japanese Government as part of their plans to occupy Australia during the second world war. They came mighty close until a raw, poorly trained and badly armed Aussie army became the first to defeat the Japanese in a WW2 battle.
Leads! While reminiscing I almost forget we were talking about leads. These ads were what are called lead magnets. It’s a real thing, we still use them today. A lead magnet is an offer designed to attract someone into becoming a prospect.
If we think of the ad for the x-ray glasses, it’s also a self-liquidating offer. That means it is designed to pay for itself by not only generating leads but making sales. Clever right?
Once someone has filled out the form and sent in the $1 they have become a qualified customer. Now the company can send them more offers with the confidence of knowing they are a great lead as they already made a purchase.
As I said earlier every industry uses leads. Most companies use outside consultants and professional leads companies to generate the leads for them. The reason for this is the internet has taken over as the main platform for lead generation. Of course there are many methods and sites which can produce traffic which can be turned into prospects.
The big names are Facebook, Google Adwords and Bing. There are hundreds of others as well, they are just lesser known to most people. I’m not going to go into it anymore than that in this post as that’s not the point.
The point of this page is to speak about the different types of leads.
