    Both. Leads and ads. I've also recently launched a digital product for $600. I've sold 2 in 1 week :) I might just stop with the lead selling now. Lots of regulations on it. Digital products are so much better, and it's my product.

    Hi @daveguy ,
    when you look for homepage links: does it matter if the site already links out to other websites? Will you ask for a link nevertheless oder do you only consider websites with a fresh homepage without links to other sites?

    Hello,

    If the site has a few outbound links to other websites I don't mind. I try to cap it at around 10 - 15. Depends on the site. I look at many other things first. Was the site dropped and renewed later giving it fake authority? Does the site receive traffic? Social presence? Owner care about the site? I am picky with my links.

    Funny that I had that same mindset of checking for google trends, checking monthly search and buying EMD. ALL of those failed miserably.

    Lead gen is quite interesting. I'm in a way familiar with that law mentioned about calling people so it's always best that prospect leads provided their consent and it's recorded, that someone is allowed to call them to discuss business. For calls, leads should be aware about the name of the business that would reach them, including the name of the person that would talk to them. Also prefered time from leads are good. That's my little knowledge for calls, not sure with the other channels though.

    About your process though, have you tried getting a team that would try to reach out to potential leads through calls? Or is it what you've mentioned that it's just through your site?

    Anyways, thanks for the share. Another slap in the face that I'm not the only who failed. I should get going.

    Just to be sure I understand: you mean you cap it to 10-15 outbound links on the homepage, right? Or so you mean in total. Cause that would seem very few.

    How do you check traffic?

    Bonus question: would it be a good idea to find potential link giving sites via similarsites?

    Thanks for the insight. I've been trying to figure out a way to record the calls but it's not exactly cheap. I only reach out to people that contact me through live chat, google voice number or contact form.

    Yes, just on the homepage. The theory is, the more outbound links on the page, the less value your link gets. Who knows if that's still true. I use ahrefs to check organic traffic. SEMrush has a free version. I've never used similarsites for links. I detailed my process earlier in the thread. You need ahrefs to do what I do.


    My site now has 20 articles. I added a bunch.

    Recording a call is actually a simple feature on my phone. I guess it's available for most phones now. Try to call someone, check your phone for more options and see if shows the record option.

    Nice to hear you hit your goal.

    Just curious because I don't see this on the thread, but how much traffic are getting?

    Are you getting them from organic, social, etc.?
    Also, if you don't mind, what's your bounce rate?

    Thank you!

    By far the best "journey" thread I've read so far. Can I ask you what is the digital product you're selling?
