I am starting a business (primerica) but really have no friends or family to contact. Any ideas how I would get any leads?

If anyone out there has been w/this company I would really like to hear your stories. Thanx

  • You need to reach out to everyone that you come in contact with. Always have business cards / handbills with you. If you do not currently belong to any networking groups, now is the time to join some. You should also look for lead-sharing groups in your area.

    Good luck, and make sure that this is the right business for you...

  • There is a good rule of thumb... If you come with in three feet of someone, make sure they have your information! I know I had that issue when I started my business too. But with lots of local, consistent advertising, I have built a great business...

  • Advertise anywhere and everywhere you can - craigslist, newspapers, etc. I was going to start with them, but couldn't get through everything. GL!

  • Sounds Like WLG That helped bring down the housing industry or put another way a MLM, Judge for yourself. I did go to their meetings, but I do not like to deceive people.  That is why they want you to go after family and friends.  Just google it and check the BBB

  • BLOG!!! Every field has some sort of networking website. Find yours. Then create an account and Blog!! I am so easily found on google search engines thanks to my blogging and I don't pay a dime!! Then blog sincerely about topics you care about and people will contact with you. Stay away from any type of ego marketing though!! Good luck!!!
