Lisa, before you go spending money on buying leads, why not try some free sources? My own experience with paid leads has been very poor (way less than 1%).
I suggest Craigs List to start. Go to Craigs List, set up an account (free) make up a short advertisement and place it under business services - Miami Area. It will run for 30 days (free). Use their coded response mail, not your own email or you will get some responses that are only people trying to sell you their services.
Also use the social networks - twitter, Facebook and MySpace (especially the last two as you can build an ad into your page)
And, before I spent money on paid leads, my next source would be advertisements in the penny saver type papers in the Miami area.
Due to my own poor experience I won't recommend any paid leads firm, but just go on the internet and google business leads, or just leads & you will get a bunch of people willing to sell you some.
Thanks for all the info.
im currently doing all of the above
but im kind of hitting the wall right now.
nothing is moving.
thats why i figure i would
have to buy leads to make something happen.
im more than happy to hear any other

Have you tried getting some advice from a local SCORE Counselor? SCORE is an affiliate of the Small Business Administration that provides FREE small business counseling to people wanting to start and grow small businesses. They are a group of (mostly) retired business persons who volunteer time and experience to help others. Each local chapter usually has one or more people who specialize in certain areas (marketing for instance).
To find your local chapter, log on to SCORE at www.score.org and follow the link to your local chapter and then request assistance with marketing your business.
thanks for all the info...
will look into to it!!
Thanks for the score website. I'm going to look into it for my own business. I'm currently offering a service that is free to sign up and am still having trouble getting companies to sponsor a day (sign up).
