    Now my question is this, I have recently set up a lead generation company for Tradesmen

    I want them to join my website so I was wondering what the best way to attract them to sign up..

    Which of the options is best:


    1 - Offer 6 months/1year free trial to join and then sell leads at X price after the free trial period

    2 - Offer free membership to join but they pay a commission on each job I refer to them.


    Right now what matters to me is populating the site and getting them to join so I can prove to them I can supply them leads.

    Also I want them to join ASAP and I believe creating a sense of urgency so they feel they dont miss out. Should I give them a deadline to join before a certain date?



    I would appreciate any other options or strategies

    Kind Regards

    Becky

    Call them from the Yellow pages, a day per week on the phone should get you up to 20 or 30 free subscribers after about 3 months.

    Once you've got it populated you can knock on doors or make phonecalls to get business in for them!

    I tend to prefer to pay it forward approach, so...

    Develop some valuable content on the site, freely given away. Develop some additional content, available with a free membership.

    Once they see and appreciate your insights, it's only a small hop to wanting your leads.

    try twitter as well...follower wonk will help you search keywords from bio and speak directly with the people you are interested.

    can you share/PM the link of your web site?
