Below you will find 10 common methods to help generate free network marketing leads, many of these ways as you go about your  everyday tasks.

1.  Be sure to have a website with an “opt in” page!  This is CRITICAL!  Your Greeting Card Businesswebsite can give an overview of your business and then simply say “to find out more, enter your email” and have that email forwarded to you.  You now have a method of contacting that lead (their email). You can also use this method by asking for their phone number as well.

2. Create a newsletter geared toward your business that shows your personality. It doesn’t have to be long and you can get content form your company, as well as just your own thoughts and experience.  When people sign up for the newsletter, they opt in to being further contacted about your MLM business (make sure this is stated plainly on the newsletter registration page).

3.  Cold Calling.  Keep in mind that if you are selling personal products and not business products, this process will be more difficult but if it fits your personality, then try it and be consistent.

4.  Treat your e-mail signature as free advertising space and create a signature message that briefly introduces your business and invites people to contact you for more information.  Include your Facebook page, Pinterest link, and any other social media sites you are active on. Place each person who contacts you on your lead list!

5.  Send out a Press Release announcing your business or products.  There are plenty of ways to send out press releases without spending a cent.  What’s more, each press release will contain your contact information which means that the leads will come to you instead of you tracking them down!

6.  Business Referrals both online and off are fantastic places to find free MLM leads.  Your business network probably has a lot of potential clients that would be interested in your services.  Create a reciprocal relationship where you can share leads.

7.  Write articles about your business and submit them to free article directories—the articles can have your website information on them and people who are curious about your business  or product will visit your website and register their information to find out more about your company.

8.  Networking.  Many people go into MLM thinking that it is a great way to do business without having to do the “traditional” business building methods like marketing, sales and networking.  This couldn’t be further from the truth!  To really succeed and get free leads, you need to get out into your community and let people know what you do.  Each person you meet can then be turned into a lead!

9.  Register your business with the search engines.  Google’s small business center is free to use and can be a help you generate lots of leads..  When you register with the Google business center, your business will appear at the top of search results for your type of business when people do local searches.  If you attach your website’s link to your listing, you won’t have any trouble generating free MLM leads!

10.  Personal Referrals. Ask your current leads if they know of anyone else who might be interested in your services.  The law of averages says that at if you ask every one of your leads who else might be interested in your business; at least a few of them will give you a few names, numbers or email addresses!

Not all methods might work for you, but some will, and if you are consistent at 3-4 of these techniques, you will slowly start filling your funnel by generating free business leads!
