Hello to all, I work with a home based business that is based on referals. I have placed ads on tons on free online advertising places. It's work somewhat-but not to my expectations for all the time it takes to place these ads. Any ideas on how I can reach people that are interested in working from home without spamming emails or anything like that? I don't really want to have to pay someone to do what I can do. Your friend, Wendy

Does your online business allow you to purchase decent leads from them? I'm not hot at marketing, but you can also purchase business cards for REALLY cheap online. (My preference is www.vistaprint.com.) Anyway, you can put these business cards in libraries, on public boards at stores, etc. Or even fliers. If you can get leads specifically for your business, I recommend doing the following: 1- Join www.associatedcontent.com. 2- Write a couple articles each day, always submit them for pay. 3- After two-three weeks use the money you made from the articles to pay for leads so that way you never pay out of pocket. That is how I purchase my leads. Also, there is networking advice articles on that site, so you can find help on it as well. Good luck!

Purchase leads??? Why would I want to do that???? Business cards Hmmm Never tried that route but may give it a thought. Would create m own though it is much cheaper that way and no middle man (or woman so to speak) LOL Not very good at writing articles but also a ggod concept there Good input thanks muchly Wendy

Why don't you add your link to your email address. If you are sending tons of email, each person who receives an email from you, will get the link and message. That would be a good start, without having to spend a penny.

Hello It's me Rob. The one messaging you! How about traffic exchange? Have you tried that? Referrals are tough Why? People want PROOF I am also in the same boat. I am working on something now that I hope will change things. I need help with it thats why I am trying to build a team of people who can give me honest feed back. many people who do what we're doing jump from one thing to another But while they do that they stay focused on at least one until something better comes along. So I need to find out what those programs are.

Yes I am a member of a ton of TE's I think all I got from surfing sites like crazy ws 1 sign up Rob good comments as well about others jumping from one program to another. Getting nowhere in a big hurry aT least that is what I think. You hace to concentrate on 1 program but what is the time line 6 months, 1 year, 3 years or more. Especially with the long term ones and residual income ideas. I belong to great program but that is not what I am here for. Thanks for your input To YOUR SUCCESS online and off Wendy
