Lead Skimmer Review

Lead skimmer Review

Created by Geoff Stephen, founder of Global NPN, Lead Skimmer is a lead generation system that can be used to build a list and generate income at the same time by getting your leads to work for you. That is the claim, anyway. But does it actually work?

How Lead Skimmer Works

  1. The first thing you do is create an account at leadskimmer.com. In your member area, you will get affiliate links, which lead to the Lead Skimmer capture page.
  2. Connect your Lead Skimmer account to your AWeber account so that you can build an email list.
  3. Start promoting Lead Skimmer using your affiliate links. There are dozens upon dozens of ways of getting your links out there.
  4. Your first lead, your second lead, and your third lead get passed up to your sponsor.
  5. You keep your fourth lead and ever lead after that. These leads get added to your email list and also start lead lines within the Lead Skimmer system.
  6. Every lead you get within a lead line will pass three leads up to you. Those three leads will each pass three leads up to you. This goes on indefinitely.

If that was a little confusing, maybe this Youtube video will help out.

The Premium Version

Building an email list with Lead Skimmer is free. You will have to pay for an upgrade if you want to use Lead Skimmer to make money.

The upgrade does two things. First, it allows you to start generating your own lead lines right away. You do not have to pass your first three leads upward to someone else.

The second thing the upgrade does is that it allows you to earn a commission from any of your leads who themselves buy the upgrade. If you do not upgrade, these commissions bypass you. If this looks like a pyramid scheme to you, well, it sort of is.

Lead Skimmer has two upgrade options. You can view these in your member area.

  1. A one-time payment of $44.95.
  2. A monthly payment of $39.97, bundling in a membership to Global NPN. Global NPN offers a suite of services, including autoresponders, website building tools, hosting, and internet marketing training. It is a little expensive, but might be worth it if you don’t already have any of these services.

Making Money With Lead Skimmer

If you upgrade, every lead in your lead lines who chooses the first upgrade option gives you a $25 commission. Every lead in your lead lines who chooses the second upgrade option gives you $25 every month in residual income.

Geoff Stephen made this video to explain the commission system.

Autoresponder Integration

Lead Skimmer works with AWeber, Get Response, or Global NPN’s MailMarketer Pro (which is included in the second upgrade option).

Does Lead Skimmer Work?

The short answer is yes, Lead Skimmer does work. It can help you build a list and it can earn you commissions.

The longer answer is that Lead Skimmer takes some effort in the beginning. This is not an internet marketing easy button. You have to get leads, and that means using any internet marketing tactic you know of. Purchase email blasts from other people’s lists; put your affiliate link into blogs; make a Youtube video, do whatever it takes.

The beautiful thing about Lead Skimmer is that there is a tipping point where your lead lines start growing on their own faster than you are adding to them through your own efforts. The system may at this point be put into autopilot, and you can concentrate on marketing to your new email list.

Review-Hub Verdict

Try it for free. Upgrade if you can put the time into marketing your affiliate link. It is easy to make a profit.
