Do you now or have you in the past used lead generation websites. The kind of site where you pay to be a member and then you get sent leads to jobs?

What was your take on it?

In this article Ryan talks about how he started his own lead generating site. It seems the problem with these sites is that the customer gets deluged with sales calls once they fill out these forms.

Home Improvement Website (http://www.catholic.org/prwire/headline.php?ID=1982) - Ryan Corey realized the current marketís flaws when he turned in a lead several months ago to one of the largest names in the online lead generation industry. The following several days Mr. Corey was flooded by pushy sales calls from competing contractors. The calls became less frequent after about one week, but for the next several months they occasionally reappeared.
