Sales Genie?

Has anyone used salesgenie.com to find leads for their business? I was playing around with their free trial and it seems to give some “qualified” leads including name, address, and phone number.

I just wasn’t sure if the leads were actually solid, or if it was a reputable (not shady) way to get them. Opinions?

B2B or B2C?

As a means of increasing a mailing list towards customers.

I was searching around, and found a few hundred names and addresses for potential leads in an affluent neighborhood nearby. I was just wondering if anyone had experience with these sorts of things…buying leads.

My gut is telling me it probably isn’t worth it, but since the trial is for 100 free leads, it might be worth testing.

What type of business are you in?

I’m a fitness coach.

Among the parameters salesgenie uses to narrow down the search field are “interest in health & fitness” and “interest in golf”, so I’m presuming the leads would be slightly more likely to follow up.

Does your business sell to other businesses or does it sell to consumers? If it sells to businesses, try D&B, or if you have a specialty need there are other list sources out there (like for businesses with vehicles, you would go to RL Polk).
