*Be sure to watch our note-taking training first! watch here
Inside Prospect Toolbox you will find your “Contacts” where you can take notes on every call and lead.
After you have been using the note-taking features, in the future if you are looking for anything specific, you can use the advanced search to find it!
Phone Burner Notes
You can also take notes during dial sessions or phone burner sessions.
During your dialing session buttons appear at the bottom of every call.
Every time you press a button, PhoneBurner automatically takes a note of this action and sends a matching follow-up email (if an email is matched to that button).
By default, most of these emails are already created for you and contain your personal information.
Find them here after logging in, and change what emails are sent with each button pressed in the Dispositions * advanced users.
After you click on “Live Answer” more buttons will appear.
After using PhoneBurner you can search by the different PhoneBurner buttons you pushed during your dial sessions. PhoneBurner takes a lot of notes automatically for you just by pushing a few buttons during the calls!
For example. you can use the “Advanced Search” to create a “Saved Search” of everyone you left a voicemail for. You can use this search anytime you have wanted to try calling your leads for the second time.
Using the note-taking features with the advanced search features will allow you to easily manage hundreds or thousands of contacts!
Well, when you take great notes on your leads, you are going to increase your success…
Learn what is… and what is not… getting you results
Know your ROI
Easier follow up calls
When you take great notes on your lead calls, your results always continue to improve!
If dialing leads are not yet getting you the great results you desire, yet hear other people having, you will learn exactly why when you take great notes on your leads.
Exactly what step is not working? Is it getting voicemails answered? Is it your introduction interview? Is it the follow up after a presentation?
You can then look at the patterns, show your notes to your upline, ask HBBLeads support for help, search our training articles, google search, or ask an expert.
Note taking and follow up is a critical step to have success with dialing leads. Use the following pages to take better notes with your leads. Be sure to add more columns and rows to our sheets, customize them, and use whatever methods work best for you.
Pick a Calendar
In addition to taking notes, you absolutely need a Calendar before you call leads.
Pick one, stick to it, and use it every day.
Here are a few ideas:
Your daily planner
A wall calendar
A desktop calendar
An app on your smartphone
Prospect Toolbox: use the Events calendar for automatic reminder emails, text alerts, and more.
How Many NEW Leads Per Week?
Depending upon the volume of leads you are currently working with, you may want different solutions for the easiest management.
Printing each lead or handwritten: 25-50 leads per week
Spreadsheet: 25-100 leads per week
Prospect Toolbox: 50-1,000 leads per week
It’s up to you to decide what information you need to remember for future calls and appointment. Here are some ideas to get you started.
1. Always start with a Phone Call. (If you need suggestions on what to say visit our Scripts Training and other training content at HBBLeads.com)
What are their income goals?
How many hours per week can they dedicate to a new opportunity?
What have they done for work before?
Did they watch a presentation from you? Which one?
What did they like about the presentation?
2. Always write the DATE next to every phone call, voicemail, etc.
3. Schedule follow up calls your calendar. You will need to schedule follow up calls if you called them at a time they are busy (most common), to do a 3-way call with someone else, to give them a longer presentation, to follow up and answer a question you did not know the answer to. Use whatever calendar you will actually check every day. It can be a paper wall calendar, an app on your smartphone, etc.
Abbreviate your notes:
P – phone call VM – voicemail VM 1 – left 1st voicemail VM 2 – left 2nd voicemail EM – Sent email TXT video – texted a video link (with their permission during the call) NA – no answer BAD – bad lead with a non-working number, wrong person, etc. DND – do not call again, remove from the list

Print Each Lead
Some customers like to print every email, on a single piece of paper, then write in notes during the call. Then use a 3-ring punch to put the good leads in a binder with all of their notes.
Most of the Live and Fresh Leads from HBBLeads can be delivered to you via e-mail, one lead at a time. You can choose this option during checkout for your order, or contact our support staff.
You can also send each lead to yourself via email from inside of your HBBLeads customer control panel.
Look for the buttons in the image below:
All leads from HBBLeads are available as a CSV spreadsheet (this simply means that the leads name, email, phone, etc. is separated by a comma “,”)
You could either keep filling in the information on your computer or print your spreadsheet to write in notes.
Format your spreadsheet using Excel or a similar program.
Save your spreadsheet
Continue adding columns and notes as needed.
You will need to expand the columns in your spreadsheet program to see all of the data.
Format the spreadsheet to add more space for writing your notes. When you are on the phone with a lead you can take notes right inside your spreadsheet, always remember to save when finished.
You can occasionally go and copy all of your GOOD leads into a new spreadsheet, note-taking program, etc. where you have more room to continue taking notes.
You can use the tabs at the bottom for different kinds of leads.
Keep adding to your spreadsheet in whatever way works best for you.
Inside of Prospect Toolbox is an area for adding a date stamp, note taking, and adding “Events”! Events will send a reminder email to the lead, add it to your calendar, send you reminder e-mails, and more. You can even set up Text Alerts” to remind you of follow up appointments.
Inside of Executive Level Prospect Toolbox is Phone Burner. When using PhoneBurner you automatically log what happened on each call! (Fax machine, no answer, VM, etc.)
You can then “search” your leads any way that you want… by date range, area code, number of voicemails… there are almost infinite options.
Is there a specific word, phrase, or script that you mentioned… that gained more / less interest?
Is there a specific video that had no response?
What worked the best today? What didn’t work today?
Keep improving what isn’t working! Who can you ask specifically for help about what didn’t work?
o If so, find help to improve such as looking for scripts from HBBLeads, or ask your upline for a better video, etc.
Keep adding more of what IS working!
How many calls did you make?
How many scheduled a presentation?
How many scheduled a follow-up?
How many joined or are interested in joining?
When you take great notes:
You will start to notice WHAT DOES WORK and WHAT DOES NOT.
You can ask for specific advice from your upline leaders, HBBLeads, and experts.(Better questions get better answers!)
Soon, you can start to use only scripts, videos, etc. that get you great results!
You will know which types of lead orders are working for you, and which ones are not.
Like learning how to play an instrument or learning how to do anything, you will keep getting better!

What’s are the differences between a Full Custom System vs. Prospect Toolbox system?
Let’s get into more detail with Pro’s and Con’s in case you are wondering what else is a factors into the different price tags, and need help evaluating which one is right for you.
This list is based on past consultations and evaluations done for our customers and clients. The specific numbers and facts vary depending upon the features of your system, the software developers you are contracting with, the size of your team, and so much more. The most frequent price tag we see in proposals currently from multiple companies is $30,000.
Full Custom System ($15-30k):
Pro’s: the system is built for you by developers, branded with it’s own custom brand and website URL from start to finish, may include a mobile app, may include a share in revenue if you are selling the system to your team users, may be fully customization to add specific funnels, pages, remove features or add features, may be integrated directly with your MLM company as a part of their back office features.
Con’s: the price of the system or the price you pay to build usually also depends upon a guarantee of adding a specific number of users to the system, typically takes 3 months to develop and launch, training content may not be provided, price is on average $15 – $30k.
If you are interested in a system like this please contact support. We can help match and introduce you as we have a long history and experience working with the best system software developers.
Prospect Toolbox ($49.95/mo):
Pro’s: system comes with plenty of pre-written scripts / emails / capture pages ready to go or you can edit for your team, each account level includes free leads from HBBLeads, no quotas or requirements for a specific number of team users, no contract, no additional set up fees (unless you want to hire a consultant from us for additional help), you are welcome to use our Prospect Toolbox training videos and content to train your team, you can brand the “back office” dashboard with your logo and team name, users can brand their own marketing resources with their own website URL, system set-up time can be as fast as you want because our system is already up and running (it is up to you to add the content and invite your team), most system features work on a smartphone browser and have mobile text alerts.
Con’s:you create all custom content and additional design (upload the videos, write the emails, etc. * may want to hire someone from our staff as needed for help), basic system features cannot be added or removed (because it is a shared system, you can only change the content), users will sign up through HBBLeads and/or Prospect Toolbox only (because it is a shared system), no mobile app (however most features work in a smartphone mobile browser).
Neutral (about the same as any system): all users subscribe for $29.95-$119.95 per month to have access to their own account on your team, team users can be on any level package and upgrade/downgrade/cancel at any time.
If you are new to small business ownership, you may find yourself searching for various outlets for expanding your branding reach. You’ve probably already researched leads marketing and its pros and cons. You’ve done your due-diligence, and BRAVO! You’re officially ahead of your competition! However, the leads marketing arena can be a bit tricky for newcomers. In this article, we are going to describe the key differences between buying a “list” and buying a “lead.”
Typically buying a “list” means that you are buying a “list” of names. For example, if you sold medical supplies you may want to buy a list of doctors offices to visit. Typically, a list is a category of people that you would be interested in soliciting to. When you contact them you are soliciting them, and different rules and laws may apply.
When buying “leads” this typically means that the data you are buying is legitimate people who have opted-in (requested) to be contacted about a product or service. These people have demonstrated an interest in what you are selling.
Which one should you buy?
The bottom line is that you get what you pay for. If something seems “too good to be true,” it probably is. If either leads or a list is too cheap, you can bet that the same list or leads are also sold countless times to other customers, and will actually have no value to you.
At HBBLeads.com we only supply opt-in leads that are exclusive to you or shared a few times in a way that lowers the price for you, however, has a minimal effect on quality and response when you call them.
If you would like a free consultation about the leads we offer please contact us or book a call and we are happy to help you find the right leads for your specific business.

Do you want to know exactly how to improve any marketing campaign?
Do you want to know how to have results from marketing in almost anything you do?
WE ARE GIVING YOU THE ANSWER 🙂
What is split testing?
Split testing means that you are always trying different things to see what gets the best response.
How do you set up split test?
You do not need fancy software 🙂
You simply need to break down how you do your marketing, one small item at a time.
For example: Start with your opening sentence when you call leads.
Try using a few different introductions such as:
Good afternoon, this is ____ calling about your interest in making money from home, how are you today? Do you have a moment to talk?
Hello, this is a courtesy call for (Lead Name), my name is ____ calling about your interest in making money from home,. I am calling to make sure you received the information you requested.
Good afternoon, this is ___ calling from ___(my location)___. I am calling because you answered one of my websites about starting a home business…
Use each one on at least 10 times or more.
Make a note of which one had a positive response, where the person wanted to talk to you more, and notes of when people became distant and tried to end the call.
You will notice when you say certain phrases they light up with excitement, and with other phrases, they pull away and start to become negative. TAKE NOTES!
Next, you may want to try testing 3 different videos explaining your business.
Again, watch how people respond to each video and always take notes.
Take Detailed Notes
Over time, and it does take time, you will see patterns.
You will learn that your leads generally like it when you say certain words, and get turned off by others.
You will find you get more interest from some videos and no responses from others.
The more you do this, the more your marketing becomes predictable and successful!
You can eventually get to a place where you know your entire marketing process, and you know that it gets positive results!
You will also know which words and videos do not work, and need to be removed from your process.
Always be taking notes on how people respond to your words, videos, emails, texts, and so much more.
Even if you have a problem with a part of your enrollment process that you can’t solve… you now know WHAT you need to solve.
For example, let’s assume no one is responding positively to your video. You can contact your upline for help and ask what video they are using to get results. You can test even more videos. You can ask your leads directly “be honest with me, what didn’t you like about the video?” and use that information to help you find a different video or create your own video or webinar.
Repeat, Repeat Repeat
Always be split testing.
Always listen closely to your prospect’s response to your words or marketing materials.
Always be taking notes on responses from every single small piece of your advertising.
You can review your notes every day, week, or month.
The more you remove what is not working, and do more of what is working, the more your business will succeed!
This post is PURE GOLD.
We hope you will bookmark, save it, and use it over and over again.
Everyone, this is Brooke from HBBLEADS And in this video, we’re doing a webinar to go over the basic features of Prospect Toolbox and talk about what it is.
Alright, so I was talking to Renee earlier this morning, and she was talking about building her business with maybe a thousand leads at a time, and I had to suggest prospect toolbox.
So here we are and you’re going to watch me show the prospect toolbox, and go through the main settings and what it is and how it will help her. And you get to watch this video too. I would say I love creating videos because she can share them with her team when they need to learn how to use prospect tools. You can share them with your team out there. And that’s what Prospect Toolbox is all about too, it’s about duplication and making it easier on ourselves in the long run
.Okay, so what you’re looking at right now, this is the home page of HBBLEADS as You’re familiar, and you’ll find prospect toolbox, all over the site, and you can also order a here and you probably notice that it’s one dollar for a ten day trial. And we did that for a very specific reason, and that is that you need some time to set it up, you do some time to get under the hood and create all the settings.I’m gonna show you that today, what it looks like and this or trial in that 10 days, there’s no setup fees, there’s no contracts, there’s no cancellation policy, and you can upgrade and downgrade at any time from inside your customer account with us.
And I have a little bit of a demo account here. If I can show you. I don’t know if it has the settings, but I’ll show you what it looks like. When you have a customer account with us, you have this control panel and you’ll see your settings here and all your prospect toolbox will be in your account. So if you’re familiar with us already, which you probably are, if you’re watching this video, you probably order leads to us in the past and you know, you know how to use the internet, you know how to log into an account and get what you need.
Well, prospect toolbox, although it is a separate system from us is actually a separate company. We partnered with them in a way. So that when you logged in at HBBLEADS, your prospect toolbox is inside the same account, you can click one link and log into your prospect so you don’t need to remember two passwords.
And also, when you receive leads from us to go into your system automatically… we’ll get to there, that later.
Modify your account? You can come in here and click on this link. …you can upgrade, downgrade, cancel at any time. So if it doesn’t work out for you, you can just cancel it.[…. you can upgrade at any time, you can downgrade at any time. Say it is a slow season? Downgrade. No questions asked….] You can do all that here… we even have people over the years that maybe have the biggest package, which is the dialer and everything else. You can actually downgrade over Christmas and if you’re not gonna be dialing, may you take on vacation for a month traveling for a while, you actually downgrade to a lower package size, keep your leads and upgrade later.
So basically, what I want you to know is that when you have an account with us, it’s really easy to manage.
You can see your next billing date, you can actually update your credit card. This the users’ account will look a little different than yours will. Because this person has been here a really long time and they actually ordered a package we had, which is more… it’s not even that much, but he ordered a package that was a lot more than that a long time ago.But in here, when you modify your account, update your credit card log in your system all in the same control panel.So does that make sense?
So when you get that one dollar trial, I just want you to know that you have full control if you wanna change the size of your package or you want to cancel or whatever, there’s no cancellation based on contract, just log in your account, make the changes that you need, right?
Live Leads, Fresh Leads are delivered directly to your Prospect Toolbox.
So, let’s get into this a little bit. Okay, so this system has so many features. And what I’m going do here is talk about these important tips before I show you this system. These are really the most important things to know. Okay, so we already covered that one login is needed. We just covered that. Now, here’s the next tip, is that we deliver all of your live and fresh leads automatically into your prospect toolbox for you.
So when every order leads from here leads, the leads will go into your system automatically, you don’t have to download anything, you don’t to import anything, they just show up. And I’ll be showing you a few minutes exactly where they land when they get there and what’s important to know those these age to leads the only ones we don’t send your account as both local leads, the leads have to be within 30 days old and the local, as are older than 30 days old, and we might occasionally have… so, specialty leads, for example, post cards or for direct mail, those don’t get loaded in your account. Got basically most of our leads. Any leads that are in 30 days old, have a name, email, phone number, those are gonna be loaded into account automatically, so you can start using the system and what happens with a lot of people that sign up is they think it would be harder than this. And we start looking for how to do all those things.
Where do I log in?
“How do I download my leads? Well, you just log in here and your leads are there, it’s already done.
Here’s what a lot of people like … there’s so many users on the system right now and no one else has this.
We have free leads with every account level and all we show you those account levels in a minute. And I want to talk to you about what the free leads are. This is really important. The free leads are 7-21 day nationwide leads. So you can see what these are. So these are nationwide, which means these are people responding to ads all over the United States and they are age leads. They can be up to 21 days old, we do well, here’s the thing, they’re free.
You’ll see this sign by the way, when you go through any leads on our site, if they’re eligible for prospect tool box, if you go in, click through all little icons and everything else would see that they’re eligible and you can see the other delivery settings. What I wanna show you though on the nationwide leads is…
so basically what they are, let’s look at the lead data so we can go here.
You get the basic name, phone of our email dress.
These are some pretty… basically, a nationwide. They answered an ad wanting to acquire about starting a home business or making initial income from home.
And what I wanna show you, even more, is the pricing on these leads. Because when I want to show you, is that the system, it’s actually like a by one, get one free. we’d matched the system to the price of the leads when you get 50 free leads, which would be about $30. we have a $30 system, we do the math that works out, we have another one that’s 80 leads, which is about $50. and the, price. And then our 200 leads is a..
you’re going to find our system as the price is the same, we’re basically giving you these leads.
It’s like a buy one, get one free by the way you price it out.
I want to manage some expectations really quick too.
You understand that dialing older leads is a little bit more challenging or you need to have a different skill set to do that. You dialed leads before. Yes, I do understand that…
If you’re a prospect toolbox subscriber, we will cover your simple daily routine to be sure you stay on top of your prospects and their responses. If you already did the Set-up Instructions, this video is your next step.

Lead Comparison – a walkthrough of the different types of leads and how they work. Find the best leads for your business
Is a network marketing career right for you? When you know the answer to this, you will have a better decision-making ability to know when someone is right for this business and when they are not.
I know you’re probably surprised to see this post.
Sometimes the complications of having success goes a lot deeper than just the quality of the leads.
To be honest, my biggest #1 pet peeve about the network marketing industry is seeing the wrong people being recruited, while the right people are being looked over and don’t even know this industry exists.
The bottom line: It’s all about honesty and finding the right people to work with you.
Pick one the following…
Would you prefer to enroll only 3 people this year who will reach high ranks in your company, that are naturally motivated, and will lift you up as well?
Or enroll 20 people that complain, waste time, don’t recruit, and don’t follow through?
I hope you said the first one! There are so many benefits to option #1, we would need to write another article to cover it all.
After reading this post:
There may be more people you turn away from working in your business faster. By the way, telling someone “no” is actually very attractive and you may find they start pursuing to work with you!
There may be more people who you will have a genuine enthusiasm to recruit them into your business! Having authentic enthusiasm and belief in someone else’s success is very important for closing sales and making enrollments. It’s one of the best things you can do (and you can only do it authentically).
How much better will your business perform with this insight?
We hope you see why this is so important.
Take this quiz for yourself, or use it when connecting with your leads to help you determine if they are the right fit for your network marketing career.
8 tips to know network marketing is a good option for you or your prospects:
Social-Personality / Extrovert / People Person
How do you feel about talking to new people and making friends? Be honest! I’m not talking about being “salesy” and pushy (that doesn’t work anyway).
If you were to spend 5 days a week constantly meeting new people, going out for meals, connecting on social media making introductions…
Does it light you up and sound fun? Or make you cringe and want to read a book?
If being social and meeting people all the time sounds good to you, you’ll fit in well in this business.
Network Marketing is a social business. Period. There is no way around this. If you or your prospect doesn’t want a social business that involves talking to people regularly, there are other careers, perhaps writing or technical business opportunities that are less social.
Self Starter / Motivated / Ambitious
Do you or your prospect do any of the following?
Study self-improvement books.
Attend conferences or take courses.
Have a desire and taking steps to make life better.
Show up for calls and meetings.
A strong desire to help others succeed.
Complete work without being pushed.
This can be learned.
Do you or your prospect understand the long-term vision of building a large network?
The truth is very few people make a lot of money fast in network marketing. The people that consistently build, over time develop a network that pays off.
It’s similar to popping popcorn in a microwave that starts off slow and inconsistent, but with the right about of time, it can take off. Most people quit after 1-2 months because they don’t see the big picture.
With long-term and consistent business building (such as a 2×2 model), significant numbers can be reached.
This can be learned.
Many of the best leaders today never imagined they could lead a team or stand on a stage.
Leadership can also be shown by following through on commitments, communicating clearly, keeping up with company updates, and being a role model.
The team will do what their leader does, not what the leader says. Basically talking about doing things, and actually doing things, will have very different results.
A good leader understands that those others will follow their example.
Emotional or Meaningful Connection to the Services or Products
Does your company provide a service or product that is meaningful to you? Is the product unique or provided in the best way?
What is the benefit of buying what your company offers?
How did you feel before, and then after experiencing the product and services?
How much better off will others be, because of the products or services?
Knowing this will give your business a purpose. Telling this story will make it easy to share your passion for your business, magnetically attract people to work with you, without doing pushy “sales.”
A valuable product not only provides emotional stories and true benefits, these types of companies tend to last longer in business too.
The Price is Right
A job may have consistent pay, however, be very limiting in growth and opportunity.
A traditional business or a franchise can cost anywhere from tens to hundreds of thousands to get started and open its doors.
A Network Marketing business, which typically costs a few hundred to a few thousand to begin, can be just the right balance of investment and opportunity for the right person.
You also understand your companies compensation model, and if you haven’t already earned your investment back, you know exactly how to do it.
If you are already enrolled in a company, you know how to help your future or current enrollments earn their investment back right away too, and you are prepared to hold their hand and help them do it!
Adaptable and Open Minded
Even though the website quora.com says that 18.2 people were in network marketing last year in the United States alone, it still doesn’t follow the traditional career track for most people.
Network Marketing is frequently releasing innovated products and services that cannot be found anywhere else.
The compensation model is not an hourly wage, salary, or tips… instead, based on commission, bonuses, leveraged, and residual income.
The network marketing industry will continue to innovate, and it takes an open mind, to learn and adapt as the industry continues to grow.
Even in a networking business where so much is done for you (websites, products, services, shopping carts, product delivery, and so on…), there has to be a weekly commitment to team training, conference calls, calling new contacts, follow up, and supporting your enrollments in achieving their goals.
Even if it’s on lunch breaks, commutes to another job, or while watching kids, that’s ok! Just make sure you have consistent time to dedicate to it. Make it a priority and schedule it every week for the best results. It can be hard for family and friends to respect a schedule for a “home business”, it takes assertiveness and planning to accomplish it.
I usually suggest asking that a minimum of 10 hours per week is dedicated to the business, and let yourself and enrollments know that with more time they will see more results. This is not a lottery ticket business, it takes commitment and effort to pay off achieve results. It can be a fun business, just make sure you actually have time for it!
How many of these did you say YES to?
Score yourself and your leads: __ / 8
8/8 = Duh! You are perfect for this!
7/8-4/8 = There is always room for learning and growth. By working with a networking company you will be developing more skills and ways to evaluate a business.
1/8 – 3/8 = What is your motivation for being in a networking business? WHAT IS YOUR WHY? Bring this list to your upline or enroller, and ask for their expert advice on how you can accomplish more of the items on this list, and if they can help you achieve it. If your “WHY/REASON” is big enough, you will likely have the motivation to accomplish anything.
When you interview your leads, pay attention to how many of these qualities you recognize in them. You will either know when to say “NEXT!” and look for better prospects or know when to have a genuine enthusiasm that they are in the right business! Both will help save you more time and earn more money!
