    Hi all,

    I've started by own SEO firm, with a team of 13 marketing professionals. Our services are way above the competition as we offer guaranteed first page rankings in all our contracts. With a team like the one I have set up with me right now, and what I'm offering most of my leads are converting. However, I'm not getting enough of them. I'm based in India, so the offline marketing tactics such as sending out mail and stuff wouldn't work as my target market is the US, Canada, UK and other parts of the world. I'm currently looking for SEO/Web/IT companies from around the world to partner with for so they could benefit from my team, and also help me grow my client base. Besides that:

    I came across these sites like: http://webleadsinc.com/seo_leads.html , http://theleadtree.com/leads/seo-leads/ , http://seoleadhq.com/ and others. These people charge quite a bit per lead, however promise high quality leads.

    I sent an email to one of them asking if these leads are exclusive or one lead is given to a lot of people together. But I got no reply.

    Anyone had any experience with it?

    Why don't you try out cold calling to businesses instead of spending on leads?

    You guarantee first page in SERPs? In a certain time frame? What about ultra competitive keywords?

    $15 per lead is expensive? When most SEO projects can be worth hundreds of dollars? I don't see the problem in paying them for their leads.

    If you promise 1st page google ranking, that's a pretty solid value proposition and can be a good advertising message. Cold calling stinks. Internet leads are questionable.

    Ever consider automated telemarketing? Target thousands of businesses and deliver your message affordably. Motivated business owners ask for your services. PM me if you have any interest.

    Rule #1. There are no guarantees in SEO.

    Yeah, but I want to know whether the $15 is worth anything or not. I don't want to end up spending hundreds on this and not getting any business.

    SEO Leads sakk. Don't waste your money. Those leads are sold off to 20 different companies regardless of what they tell you. 25% are straight bogus, 50% have no budget and the other 25% will shop you around to the point where it is unprofitable, they eventually get burned by a cheap seo provider and write off all SEOs as snake oil salesman and scam artists.

    Best sources for leads:

    #1. Referral
    #2. Targeted Cold Call
    #3. Inbound lead from your website

    Good Luck

    Sounds look promising, but have had any experience in SEO leads ? It would be much better if you can post your bad / neutral exp over SEO leads here for public views.

    He was probably pissed because he filled out a lead form 15 months ago and has been pounded on every other day since then.

    The best lead is the business that has a clear need that you point out to them and offer a solution.
