Have you ever wondered why some people enjoy great online results and others don’t?
Most online home business owners do not know how to build the type of marketing system which generates leads and helps people decide to purchase.

As each product is comparied to others in the market place there is a temptation of the reviewer and others to begin to compare produces against products. When the product is used as a judgement standard it becomes a moving target. The preferred way to conduct reviews is against an established standard.
In the first investigaiton of lead generation systems I used a set of criteria created as part of the syntopical reading process.

I published the final results of an InterNET INvestigation of home business lead generation systems. Since then a lot has changed with the systems investigated.

Mike Klingler of Marketing Merge and Marketing Funnel Mastery covers the topic extremely well in this elevator “teach”. Here he teaches Internet Marketers Rich and Natasha (LeadWhisperer.com) to add value in the process beyond the lead capture page or even the opt-in landing page.

Mike Klingler says “Give them something of value there”. By always adding value through out the lead generation system you help them to respect and trust you. By adding value if they do not buy now they will likely buy later.
